ClearSlide Increases Productivity For Millions of Sales and Marketing Professionals
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 31, 2017 – ClearSlide, the Sales Engagement Platform leader, today announced a new ClearSlide integration for Slack, as well as major updates to ClearSlide for Outlook and ClearSlide for Gmail. Available to all ClearSlide users as free, easy-to-install downloads, these integrations immediately increase the productivity of sales, marketing, and customer success teams – while also improving the quality and impact of CRM data.
ClearSlide continues to innovate on its award-winning platform, so that teams can engage with customers and prospects directly from their preferred communication tool of choice. According to research from CSO Insights, each seller spends on average 1,300 hours a year on administrative tasks – from manually logging activity in CRM to searching for content – time that could be better spent interacting and engaging with customers.
“Millions of salespeople around the world use Slack, Microsoft Outlook, and Gmail every day to communicate with their customers,” said Raj Gossain, vice president of product and design at ClearSlide. “These new and updated apps improve the quality of CRM data and empower users to work within familiar interfaces – but still have all of ClearSlide at their fingertips.”
The new ClearSlide for Slack integration allows users to seamlessly initiate ClearSlide online meetings for presentations and screen-sharing with channel members or in a direct message on Slack. The new updates to ClearSlide for Outlook and ClearSlide for Gmail expand beyond emails and campaign templates, allowing users to initiate all ClearSlide meetings directly from Gmail and Outlook, powered by enterprise-class audio conferencing. Regardless of the interface, users have instant access to their entire ClearSlide content library, recommended content, videos and recordings to use with customers or to collaborate internally – so users don’t waste time searching for the right messaging or approved content.
ClearSlide for Slack, which is Slack Enterprise Grid ready, is a free download available on the Slack app directory: https://clearslide.slack.com/apps/A1E4C9TK9-clearslide. ClearSlide for Outlook and ClearSlide for Gmail are also free downloads available to all ClearSlide customers. To download the latest version, visit https://www.clearslide.com/product/emailplugins.
