RunMyProcess says it integrates neatly into Google Apps because it’s on Google Apps marketplace and, at $10/user/year, is cheaper than Microsoft Exchange. …
Leveraging cognitive shortcuts from one (well loved?) app into another?
I still find it fascinating that features like this, from a technical standpoint pretty much trivial, and for most of us just not part of the email experience, are so often the killer feature from business process perspective.
