Integrations Offer CRM Choice Without Compromising Marketing Automation Functionality

BEAVERTON, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/14 -- Act-On Software, the leading marketing automation provider for small and mid-sized businesses, today announced its CRM agnostic approach to the marketing automation relationship. Understanding the importance of flexibility and scalability to emerging growth and mid-market companies, Act-On Software has built native integrations to all major CRMs, including Salesforce, SugarCRM, Microsoft Dynamics, NetSuite and others.

Marketing automation and CRM systems are complementary products that when integrated enhance the lead to revenue process and provide real-time actionable intelligence.

Salespeople using Act-On integrated with CRM can:

  • See marketing touch points and scores to know exactly why a lead has been qualified and assigned to them.
