Sending Accelerator Data to Other Applications (CIT)
Accelerator Contact Integration Technology (CIT) Scripts are used to send data from Accelerator to other applications. For example, a CIT script can send contact data from the Accelerator phone book to a FedEx shipping form on a web page. While you can write your own CIT scripts, you may also request a script or download a script that is already available. If you have an application that you would like to send data to from Accelerator, you may request a script by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
