Salesforce.com CRM

This section covers the installation, configuration, and use of the BluSynergy Salesforce.com CRM connector. This connector provides critical sales and financial level visibility into each “Account”.  With the click of a button you sales staff can be armed with up-to-the-minute order, billing and payment information within the familiar confines of the Salesforce CRM application.

Standard features available with the Salesforce connector include:
  • View billing and ageing information for the account, including downloadable PDFs
  • View invoice and payment history for the account.
  • Remit payments via credit card or eCheck (ACH). This is especially useful for CSRs engaged in outbound call activity.
  • Update billing contact information
  • Add/update a credit card or eCheck information on file for automatic payments.
  • Order cancellation

Extended features usually provided as part of a customized service include:
  • Order management including new order entry, upgrades, downgrades.
  • Reporting within Salesforce
  • Commission management for sales staff and/or affiliates

The extended features tend to vary appreciably between BluSynergy’s clients and are usually best served with a customized implementation.
