Features and Benefits
RingByName's Salesforce application allows you to integrate the power of RingByName with your Salesforce account. The RingByName application, available now in the Salesforce App Exchange, allows you to extend the power of RingByName from beyond a simple click-to-call interface to a fully integrated marriage of telephony and CRM.
What can the Salesforce application do?The application will allow you to make and receive calls directly from within Salesforce and work more efficiently. RingByName will work with Salesforce to automatically:
- Display matching contacts on calls to or from your business phone number -- view and update contact information through Salesforce.com and Salesforce iOS and Android apps. Improve workflow efficiency and consistency with automated telephony integration.
- Allow you to click-to-call on any phone number within Salesforce and a call is placed using your business phone number. Calls can be made from a desk phone, mobile phone, or softphone. Your office phone goes everywhere you go. Keep your personal number private.
- Sync contacts and notes so that callers can be welcomed by name, caller details can be displayed for call recipients, and call notes are created and shared with ease. A better caller experience is a competitive edge that generates tangible benefits.
