PHOENIX, June 6 /- iLinc Communications, Inc. (AMEX:ILC), a leading provider of Web conferencing software and conferencing solutions today announced the availability of two new integrations on salesforce.com's AppExchange. With the new integrations of iLinc Web conferencing and salesforce.com's on-demand CRM applications, marketing professionals can simplify campaign management for marketing Web events and sales professionals can record important Web meeting presentation information automatically from iLinc into Salesforce.
With the new iLinc Marketing Integration for salesforce.com, campaigns can be created in Salesforce and linked together with iLinc Web events, such that contacts can be invited to the event through a Salesforce email. When contacts register for the Web event, the integration automatically updates missing contact information in Salesforce such as address or phone number. If the email invitation has been forwarded to someone not currently within Salesforce and they register for the Web event, that person is automatically created as a new lead in the application. Importantly, within minutes after completion of the Webinar, all invitees that attended the event are updated with an Activity History that details if they attended the event and how long they stayed. Taking advantage of the integration, customers of salesforce.com may instantly streamline the process of managing webinars and tracking leads, thereby shortening the sales cycle.
The second integration, called the iLinc Sales Integration for salesforce.com, enables the sales team to instantly bring leads or contacts into a Web meeting for online sales presentations with one click. The integration captures all of the contacts that attend the presentation and creates an Activity History detailing who was part of the session and how long they stayed.
"Combining our award-winning feature set through integration with Salesforce should provide more immediate access to Webinar data and automate time consuming manual activities that ultimately may shorten sales cycles and increase lead flow," said Jason Walker, Vice President of Sales for iLinc. "With these new integrations we now offer comprehensive tools that support the sales and marketing lifecycle; from lead generation, to enabling the timely flow of data from the Webinar into Salesforce for quicker follow-up on leads, to online sales presentations. Besides saving money on communications and marketing programs, this will also enable salesforce.com customers in the SMB sector to more effectively manage their contact with customers and prospects," continued Mr. Walker. "We view this as a very important integration. In support of that view, we have already seen tremendous demand for this integration from prospective iLinc customers that are frustrated with their existing solution."
"Salesforce.com's customers are using the AppExchange to extend the benefits of on-demand to all parts of their enterprise," said Matt Holleran, Vice President, AppExchange partners, salesforce.com. "Now, they can get iLinc from the AppExchange with just a few clicks to enable a whole new set of functions and enhance how they communicate with their customers and prospects."
iLinc Sales Integration for salesforce.com and iLinc Marketing Integration for salesforce.com are two of more than 600 applications that are now available on salesforce.com's AppExchange (http://salesforce.com/appexchange), the world's first on-demand application directory, where it is listed as iLinc Connector 1.0 - Basic Edition and Marketing Edition.
