As you share your digital business cards with your peers, you may also obtain their contact information, which gets listed in the Contact Manager menu. Now, you might want to take the next steps to contact and nurture your contacts into your business by exporting them to CRM software. To make this process simple, Beaconstac now supports integration with Salesforce, which enables you to sync your contacts automatically to Salesforce synchronously and automatically.

Imagine if you are a sales professional attending a networking event to find new prospects. Use Beaconstac's digital business card to exchange contact information with prospects. As the event concludes, you find yourself with a list of contacts stored in Beaconstac. To effectively manage and nurture these contacts towards conversions, you realize the need to integrate Beaconstac with Salesforce. By exporting your contacts to Salesforce, you can centralize your lead management, track engagement, create personalized communication strategies, and drive successful conversions. With the Beaconstac-Salesforce integration, you can revolutionize your lead management process.
