Salesforce as a CRM tool handles all the customer data and the key customer relationship management using a wide range of out of the box features. But more often than not, the conversations with the customers like closing deals, resolving customer support cases, engaging with the new leads, investor relationships, team collaboration, etc happens outside of Salesforce via phone calls, chat or through various apps. So, not all the conversations directly happen in Salesforce, leading to losing the essence of the conversation, the conversation itself, and most importantly time.
CPaaS – Communications Platform as a Service
Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) is the solution for this. CPaaS is a cloud-based delivery model that allows organizations to add real-time communication capabilities, such as voice, video and messaging, to business applications by deploying APIs. The communication capabilities delivered by APIs could include chat, SMS, MMS, calls, and video. With this, you handle all the relevant conversation directly in Salesforce making the whole process smoother and productive.
CPaaS providers are able to use cloud technology to offer companies of any size to easily develop and embed communications features. Development teams using CPaaS can save on human resources, infrastructure, and time to market.
Other advantages to using a CPaaS include affordable pricing models, where developers can pay for just the services they need. CPaaS also allows multi-tenancy or the ability for multiple customers to use the service at the same time, each within a separate, secure environment, just like Salesforce. Bring together CPaaS and Salesforce makes everything seamless.
