Overview: Salesforce integration

8x8 Contact Center offers multichannel integration with Salesforce, allowing you to set up quickly and combine the benefits of your Salesforce CRM with the capabilities of 8x8 Contact Center. The integration supports communication with customers via channels, allowing you to access data from your CRM through an integrated 8x8 Agent Console. 8x8 Contact Center provides key information about each customer interaction, giving you insight into the full customer experience, and allowing you to access detailed records of communications with each customer.

During an inbound interaction, 8x8 Contact Center tracks if the caller is an existing user by searching CRM records and presenting the matching record for preview by agents. Agents can be better informed and prepared to answer customer interactions by previewing relevant customer record details.

  • Out-of-the-box integration with minimal custom development work
  • Increased agent productivity with integrated one-click dialing
  • Tools that help provide agents with up-to-date information and knowledgeable service
