I am looking for suggestions on the best way to allow a third-party application (potentially more than one) to trigger changes in ACT.
I have a few programs which the company I work for uses and they need to be able to trigger changes in ACT when certain events happen within those applications.
I know that in the third-party program I can write a plugin which could trigger a logon to ACTFramework and perform the action I want but I feel like that is not the best way.
I feel like with the ACT server I can have something running which is already logged into ACT and listen for notifications from the third-party programs to perform an action. Maybe with the ACT for Web there is some possibility?
Just looking for a point in the right direction or the terminology to use if hiring a developer.
As always any help is greatly appreciated.

I feel like these two links involving WCF may be a decent option:

That was what I was going to tell you. I'm actually working on a little project for Act! that involves WCF. It possible that you could use what I'm writing to do what you need to do or I could write your project for you. You can contact me offline if you like.
