    Hi,

    We are looking into a particular system to schedule appointments and log provided services, but this system lacks a function which should allow a receptionist to register the customer's arrival so the rep. who is waiting for him is alerted that the customer is here.
    The whole point is to avoid depending on an intercom call or chat and instead having an on-screen notification.

    The system uses a mysql database, so I was wondering if I could tap into the database with a third party application, is there any tool along the lines of klipfolio, yahoo widgets or similar that would simplify this task for non programmers?

    Terminals are currently running Win XP.

    Thanks in advance.
