iPoint Control software suite can now fully interface with Google Calendar, providing improved schedule visibility and management across an organization's team, from any device. By synching through Google, iPoint users can now subscribe to Google calendar in iCal, Outlook, iPhone, Android, or any other third-party service that supports Google Calendar, allowing users to directly edit an iPoint event from their device.
"It's common for businesses today to use several calendar applications to manage their schedules," said Brooks Swift, founder and CEO of iPoint. "But it can add a lot of time to the workflow and lower productivity when team members have to access different calendars to view and schedule their day. With the integration of Google Calendar into iPoint Control, this eliminates those extra steps and allows users to be organized no matter what device they're using—it's all right at their fingertips."
After a minimal setup process with Google Calendar, iPoint users can access and interact with their iPoint calendar directly from their devices. Users can reassign jobs to another technician or change the time of the event as well as add new events. Google Calendar will automatically sync any changes. Within iPoint, it will also update the work order and the calendar with the correct summary. When new events are created in Google Calendar or a Google-enabled calendar, users will automatically be prompted to generate a work order the next time they open the iPoint software application. It also provides individual permission levels, allowing companies to set who can view and/or edit events.
