The term Salesforce integration refers to secure communication and data sharing between the Salesforce and ProntoForms systems. This topic briefly describes the Salesforce integration points in ProntoForms and lists the supported Salesforce orgs, apps, and extensions.
Benefits of a Salesforce integration
Organizations often use their CRM in conjunction with a field service management system, such as Salesforce Field Service or ServiceMax, to dispatch work to front-line workers. The work orders typically provide essential data about scheduling, work location, customer contacts, and details of the service to be delivered. A Salesforce integration with ProntoForms enables you to share data between the two systems and enhance the functionality of your field service management system.
