Salesforce is one of the most popular customer relationship management (CRM) programs on the market. Its popularity is partially due to its ability to integrate with a variety of tools that help your call center run more effectively and efficiently.
But with such a wide range of tools, it can be tough to figure out which one will work best for your call center and CRM setup. To help you make the right choice, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular programs for integrating call center applications with Salesforce.
Zapier is an integration tool that allows you to integrate over 500 apps and programs outside of Salesforce with your call center system. Programs like Eventbrite, MailChimp and Google Apps can be connected with your actions inside Salesforce to help your systems run in sync. This is helpful for call centers because it can allow you to more effectively communicate with the customers in your CRM by easily sending them an email, for example.
You can view all of Zapier’s existing “zaps”, or integrations, for Salesforce by clicking here.
Zapier offers several tiers of pricing, including a free plan that allows you to create or use 5 zaps (integrations) and run up to 100 tasks per month.
Zapier defines a task as every time a piece of data is pushed through the integration; so, if you created an integration that would transfer customer information from a form on your website to Salesforce, a task would be counted each time that your Zapier integration pushed that information into your Salesforce database.
The remaining plans range from $20 – $125 per month, and each tier comes with a free trial.
With FormAssembly, you can quickly and easily create webforms that help you collect and track data from the customers in Salesforce. Some of the most popular FormAssembly functions include:
- Ability to create payment forms for orders, service requests, and more
- Develop powerful online applications using a simple, pre-made template
- Collect customer information through surveys, and transfer the information directly into your CRM
You can update contacts and files using the information you receive through these surveys or applications, allowing your call center to have a full picture of everyone in your CRM.
FormAssembly offers 4 pricing plans:
- Basic: $28/month
- Professional: $54/month
