Why Salesforce Is an Industry-Leading Solution

Salesforce is one of the most popular CRM systems known for its comprehensive capabilities in helping businesses grow faster. It streamlines customer databases in a way that makes developing better relationships with clients (Salesforce contacts) easy.

To get started, you don’t need to install any additional software because it’s a cloud-based solution. Just make sure your internet connection is strong enough to run your browser, evaluate graphs and charts via powerful analytics widgets, or access any Salesforce contact info from the database.

How to send a text to a contact in Salesforce

In a usual Salesforce workflow, to send email to a contact, users need to click Send an Email via Activity History from within the record. Then, they can choose format types like Text-Only (regular text without any formatting) and HTML (with different fonts, images, buttons, and other interactive elements), create an electronic mail body, and send it out.

Is there a way to make contacting Salesforce contacts faster?

Salesforce is already great at sending messages to contacts, especially via email. Even though there are plenty of predefined templates on the internet and many in your company’s templates library already, they still need to be manually copied and pasted and then sent as emails to Salesforce contacts. It’s monotonous, and as a result, it requires time, effort, and attention to get it done. In addition, the risk of human error is high too. Obviously, if you want to get to the next level of your business, issues like the ones just mentioned need to be eliminated.

Automation as a solution for accessing your Salesforce contacts

If you’re using a powerful and capable solution, running several workflows parallel to each other shouldn’t be a problem. Simply set conditions (rules), actions, notifications, and monitor/review each process’s progress simultaneously.

Via automation, you can avoid repetitive tasks and free up more time for valuable duties like communication with customers. Customers that know more about your brand and company will more likely come back and order your services or buy products again. Processes automated by BPA and DPA tools get tasks done much faster than people do. Avoid gaps, lost hours, and speed up how quickly you can help customers get what they need.

In addition, automated emails usually can be personalized. Customers love personalization, so they’ll pay more attention to individualized recommendations and offers.

How to automate the sending of texts to contacts in Salesforce

Many third-party services allow you to send emails to Salesforce contacts. But first, you need to make a decision. Do you really need to send them texts with links to third-party services just to keep the workflow running? Doing things that way, you’ll need to create new integrations and connections to transfer data from one system to another. It can take a lot of time and cost a lot of money.

In situations like we just talked about, airSlate is what you need. The platform allows you to combine all the services required for managing digital work successfully. You can consolidate multiple CRM and email marketing systems, databases, and cloud storage services. This way, you’ll be able to process your Salesforce workflows and send emails to contacts all from one reliable solution, without having to bounce from tab to tab.

airSlate automation is processed by specialized software robots — Bots. Each of them completes one particular task: pre-fills data, exports it to databases, sends an SMS or a notification, etc. If you use airSlate to contact customers, you’ll experience more mutually beneficial opportunities and complete business processes much easier. For example, you’ll get the capability to send forms for completing, contracts for approving, or documents for signing without repetitive manual clicking. The system will do it for you.

Do more with the Send a Slate to Salesforce Contact Bot. Follow the instructions below to set it up:
  1. Upload a document template that needs to be sent.
  2. Assign roles and fields for recipients to fill out.
  3. Connect your Salesforce account.
  4. Define conditions for when the Bot will act.

After that, once the defined conditions are met, the system will automatically connect to Salesforce and send individual emails to contacts, even without opening the CRM system itself.

How to automate communicating with Salesforce contacts like a Pro
