New App Puts Your Salesforce.com Content Inside LinkedIn Profiles

SAN DIEGO, January 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Ebsta, the Chrome Plugin for Salesforce, today launched a free app that integrates Salesforce with LinkedIn.

The new app alerts users to existing contact records inside Salesforce whilst they are viewing network profiles on LinkedIn. With a single click, Salesforce users can view the corresponding customer records, activities, opportunities and Chatter feed in a small window without leaving the profile they are viewing.

"Many companies struggle to get their Sales Reps to fully engage with Salesforce as they prefer to work inside websites like LinkedIn. With this new free app, Reps can work inside LinkedIn and still be inside Salesforce. By alerting users to existing information in Salesforce, and enabling them to engage with Salesforce with minimum effort, we empower Sales Reps to take full advantage of the world's #No1 professional network whilst ensuring Salesforce remains the hub of customer knowledge" said Guy Rubin, Ebsta's founder and CEO.

Members of the Sales Team at OnlyMarketingJobs.com were among the first Salesforce customers to test the pre-release version of Ebsta for LinkedIn. Simon Lewis, Founder at OnlyMarketingJobs.com said, "For super-charged Sales People looking to out-perform the competition, Ebsta's LinkedIn integration for Salesforce is a no-brainer. Our account management team love the free Ebsta app as it negates the need to constantly search Salesforce for customer information. Everyone involved in social selling should have this app in their toolkit."

Benefits of Ebsta for LinkedIn include:

  • Save Time - Reference Salesforce with minimum effort.
  • Increase Salesforce Adoption - Encourage Sales People to update records regularly by allowing one click access to their Salesforce records.
  • Drive Sales - Better connect with customers to close more deals.
