Since the onslaught of COVID-19, it has gotten harder to sell. No more trade conferences. Or customer meetings. Handing out brochures and business cards. Everything is impersonal. Being done by email, phone, text or Zoom/Webex/GoToMeeting. It was hard enough in the older days to create a “market qualified lead” and to close it. Now it is nearly impossible.
At the same time, the email syncing tools provided by Salesforce don’t work very well. Most of them involve a tricky plug-in that has to be downloaded to each and every user. Then the user has to remember to click “Add to Salesforce” dozens, if not, hundreds of times per day just to log the emails into Salesforce. Manual tools don’t work over the long haul. Sooner or later someone on the sales team forgets to log an email and then the customer activity information in Salesforce is flawed. It is hard to use Salesforce as a “system of record” if the client records are missing key data.
Then there are the automated syncing tools that sit on top of the plug-in sidebars. These tools are frustrating in that they create lots of duplicates in Salesforce. They store emails outside of Salesforce in a separate database server so the data isn’t available for use inside Salesforce to track “key performance indicators”. Moreover, automated tools like Einstein Activity Capture miss a lot of emails because customers have multiple email addresses and send emails from different email accounts. Plus EAC doesn’t upload attachments. An automated email syncing app needs to be designed from the bottom up to be able to deal with the complexity of email technology and lots of different users.
