  • Publication number: 20170310451
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention provide a method, system and computer program product for full-duplex real-time cross-module updates of customer relationship management (CRM) data. The method includes registering a first CRM module of a multi-user CRM data processing system for full-duplex data integration with a second CRM module. Thereafter, a full-duplex communications channel between the first and second CRM modules is established. Finally, in response to a data change in the second CRM module, the data change is pushed utilizing the full-duplex communications channel to the first CRM module, and data in the first CRM module is changed based upon the pushed data change.

  • Patent number: 9651484
    Abstract: A method includes forming a housing having a ceiling portion and a smoke permeable wall portion. The ceiling portion of the housing has a first aperture and a second aperture. The method includes mounting a circuit board to the housing so that the housing and the circuit board collectively define a smoke chamber that is bounded by the ceiling portion, the smoke permeable wall portion and the circuit board. The method includes placing an emitter in the first aperture and placing a detector in the second aperture. The emitter defines an emitting region in the smoke chamber and the detector defines a detecting region in the smoke chamber. In a typical implementation, the detecting region at least partially intersects the emitting region in the smoke chamber, and the emitter and the detector are disposed substantially outside the smoke chamber.
