Integrating Act! with MailChimp? Is this possible?

Hi there!

 

I'm a new Act! user. Let me say, Act = great!

 

We are using MailChimp to handle all our e-mail campaigns, and I was wondering if it is possible to integrate between Act and MailChimp in any way through a custom written API?

 

For instance, only needing to update a customers e-mail address or name in one place, for example Act, and then it automatically updates in the MailChimp database?

 

Possible at all?

 

Thanks!

Sure, that would be possible, worth the effort is the question..  I don't think ACT! provides a way for you to know when a users changes the email address of a customer, but you could easily write a Console App that can Access the ACT! Framework and "sync" you ACT! contacts to your MailChimp address list..  of course MailChimp woul dhave to have an API as well..
