Do you have SQL access?  I have some programs written in Perl that 
allows me to generate reports, assign accounts, etc.

I assign accounts via Perl.  I provide it the user and the account. It 
will comb the database looking for calls, meetings, notes, etc. Anything 
that has to do with the account and then assign it to the user.  It then 
sends out an email to the user telling them they have been assigned that 

When the sales guys send me leads from shows in XLS format I run a 
program I wrote that uses SQL access to create leads, emails, etc from 
that list.

Most of my interactions with Sugar is outside of the web interface.
