Making the most out of Salesforce document automation with airSlate

Salesforce, which started as a CRM, offers users much more functionality in managing massive data sets and using intelligent process automation for document-based workflows. Even though Salesforce has been around for many years and almost has no equals on the market, it needs some critical tools and resources for managing papers and workflows and integrating them into a single ecosystem.

airSlate is here to fill this gap. Our solution is a smooth, all-in-one, no-code business process automation platform that features the following:

  • Document and web forms generation: create documents, and update and manage them directly from your Salesforce account so they can be automatically pre-filled with your desired data.
  • esignature solution: sign documents confidently and collect legally-binding signatures using our built-in esignature solution that follows all required laws and compliance standards.
  • Data routing between documents and CRMs: pull and push data with ease with minimal effort.
  • Document sharing, delivery, and storage: send, share, and keep documents securely.

How the document workflows automation and creation work in airSlate

Using airSlate in conjunction with Salesforce is always about flexibility. And when it comes to document generation, in particular, with airSlate, you can benefit from different ways of creating polished and professional-looking forms from scratch. Not only can you upload existing files and populate them with fillable fields, but you can also create documents based on DOCX templates. Our platform also allows you to use conditional logic-to-document execution processes and automates your entire approval lifecycle. Documents can gather different types of customer data and route it to Salesforce records or prefill other forms with it. In addition, you can collect payments directly through your documents. You can schedule, automate, and run all the operations mentioned above using Custom buttons that airSlate generates automatically for Salesforce admins.

Getting started with intelligent process automation for document-based workflows

With the airSlate integration app for Salesforce, you can connect these two platforms in mere minutes. The app lets you configure Custom buttons and lets users in and outside Salesforce create documents and run Flows. What’s more, airSlate offers a rich choice of Bots to help you push and pull data back and forth between documents and apps, store data in Salesforce or any preferred storage services, and more. Again, airSlate is all about flexibility. You can start and manage document creation in airSlate or Salesforce - whatever platform suits you the best.
