RE: Google Maps API
@Carnival-Boy Nevermind I just reread it.. it shows your customer locations.. so assuming this is an internal tool.. well yes I agree it did take me a small Google Map API degree to figure all this stuff out.. glad to help out and make it more streamlined if you guys need though. Just let me know what you need I love working with the maps API.
RE: the missing VoIP, the ERP and the solution in search of a problem
I read this a couple times and I am lost what you are trying to do... sorry if I am being dense.. It sounds to me that you want to integrate into your ERP with your pbx, but you bought a phone system 6 months ago that is not compatible so you need to somehow do a tie line to a newer VoIP system that is compatible? Am I surmising that correctly?
If this is the case (sorry if you answered this) what brand phone system did you buy 6 months ago.. and what brand phone system are they saying you need to integrate to their ERP and what is the maker of the ERP software? Also are you saying you only need this integration with 15 users?
I can assist with this kind of thing but need more details.
RE: Google Maps API
@Carnival-Boy Hi Carnival.. is it something that is easy to do? It may seem daunting at first but it is pretty easy. I would start here.. with this tutorial..
The trick is building the MYSQL table getting it to spit out XML from a .PHP which is all outlined how to do that. Then it is just a matter of importing the .csv or creating a page that can interact with your MySQL database to update it. This is actually how I have created several of these types of maps for different companies and my own.. I actually don't even know what you mean by importing the map and a Google Sheet.. I have not done it that way before. Are you referring to Fusion tables? Sort of lost on how you set yours up originally. Sounds time consuming and difficult.
RE: Insight to PHP?
This is super easy to do. Get a PHP mailer script. Create a form on your web site using HTML then have the form submit <form method="post" action="?"> I put action ? because it came back to my same page... however you can put it to another PHP file called something like mailsubmission.php... in that PHP file you need to get the variables from the form you submitted. Then you need to receive the form items into / from a Post Variable like this
$to = $_POST['to'];
$oldmessage = $_POST['message'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$name = $_POST['name'];
$sent = $_POST['sent'];
Then use a PHP mailer script to then take those and mail them to the person you want to receive them. Plenty of tutorials on stack exchange how to further do that.
RE: Toshiba Shutting Down Business Phone Division
I am fairly certain this is all phone systems not just Strata and Pots lines as has been mentioned in this post.. that would include the IP Edge which uses SIP and all the CIX systems which could use SIP, PRI, POTs etc..they are just throwing in the towel.. they never caught back up after IP systems took to the market and they decided to take a hybrid approach. We spent years waiting for the IP Edge to take on ShoreTel and the likes.. it was a major disappointment. It was just basically a CIX 100 turned sideways with a locking case that could fit in a rack.. nothing new.. it was majorly bandaided together with multiple software.. log-in menus.. still had emanager which was horrible. They had years of money and investment to develop a product and they just simply chose not to.
