SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Bloodhound, the best way to collect, manage and follow up with leads from any smartphone, today announced an integration with Salesforce that allows users to automatically send scanned leads directly into their Salesforce account. Users will also be able to enter leads manually rather than relying solely on scanning a badge or business card.
With 100,000 of the world's most innovative companies already using Salesforce, Bloodhound naturally complements the technology by increasing speed and efficiency when collecting leads at events. This integration streamlines the process for users of both technologies by instantly populating Salesforce with leads collected using Bloodhound.
"The integration with Salesforce is a first for us," said Anthony Krumeich, CEO and co-founder of Bloodhound. "This is the first time we're integrating with a CRM platform, making it easy to incorporate Bloodhound technology into the existing workflow the sales and marketing teams are already using. We will continue to improve the experience for our users not just in those departments but in the rest of the company as well."
Another way Bloodhound is improving the experience for users is by adding the ability to enter leads manually. Not all leads come from a badge or a business card and having the option to enter contact details manually is now a standard feature for all users. This feature allows users to collect leads wherever they are, not just while attending an event.
No matter how a Bloodhound user collects contact information about a new lead, the data is immediately synced to their existing Salesforce account. Eliminating the barrier between the marketing and sales teams and allowing the sales team to follow up instantly, Bloodhound is easily added to the existing workflow.
How to get started:
- The Salesforce integration is available to all Pro users. Not Pro? Simply log into an existing account to upgrade
- Once a Pro user, users go to their dashboard and follow the simple steps below:
- Go to "Leads" and click on "Integrations"
