I am searching for a CMS where I can flag if I had an interaction with a client and then it automatically notifies me a period of time later to remind me to contact them again. This is essentially all I need it to do.

I am currently using HighRise, but I don't see this function. I have also been exposed to Zoho, but it just seems too heavy.

I realise that you can achieve this same result with calendars (for example), but I am looking for a very simple and automatic way for this to happen.

Have you asked the same question on stackoverflow. You'll get better answer there which are more related to technically. However have you searched for wordpress plugin. You'll many options – Amit Gupta Jan 22 '13 at 14:33
+1 because I don't understand why anybody would downvote this – sdg Feb 14 '13 at 17:45
This sounds like a Super User question to me, since it's more about the software than the workflow. Try asking there instead, and be sure to specify your OS. – Tyler Wayne Feb 14 '13 at 18:01

I do not know this space at all, but reviewing both HighRise and Zoho, it does seem possible to varying degress.

If there is a full API, you could certainly program this yourself, but I suspect that is not what you are after.

A long Zoho discussion board thread does mention that email event creation is available as a workflow feature in their Enterprise edition.

Alternately using logic from their birthday example, you might be able to accomplish your goal.

Good Luck

I can't find anything on their website that confirms this is a function, but in the little bit of work I've done with Microsoft CRM it has so many features I can't imagine that it doesn't have this capability (and it integrates with Outlook, so worst case I'm sure the functionality you're looking for could be accomplished with a combination of Outlook at CRM).

They also have a trial period and customer support resources you could probably use to find out for sure.

If a full-on CRM solution is more than you're looking for then I'd suggest just putting a task to follow up with your customers into a To Do application (see the "Due Dates and Repeat" section under my answer on how I use RTM as an example) or some implementation of a GTD tickler file.
