8x8 Support

8x8 Integration for Salesforce: 8x8 Work and Contact Center


The 8x8 Integration for Salesforce CRM gives you control of your 8x8 phone from within Salesforce, allowing you to combine the benefits of Salesforce with the capabilities of 8x8 Work and/or 8x8 Contact Center.

The application launches conveniently within Salesforce, enabling you to click-to-dial, quickly identify customers based on an inbound call (via records that pop up on an incoming or outgoing call), and improve the efficiency of logging calls. With these records, you can gain full insight into communications with any returning customer, and be prepared to follow up with them whenever they may call.

More information is located in our online documentation, linked below.
