Whether you’re talking about an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), an HCM (Human Capital Management), or a CRM (Customer Relationship Management), your system is only as good as the information you feed into it. Garbage in, garbage out, as the old saying goes. And if you use a CRM like Salesforce, you already know the value of having all that information easily accessible. (Data silos and manual processes are out, and seamless integrations are in.)

But did you know one of the best ways to accelerate your Salesforce integrations is through Anypoint Connector? If you’d like to learn more about the connector and how it can accelerate your Salesforce integration strategy, read on!

What is Anypoint Connector for Salesforce?

Anypoint Connector for Salesforce (also known as Salesforce Connector) allows you to expedite Salesforce integrations with Service Cloud, Sales Cloud, Salesforce Platform, and Force.com. By connecting you to all Salesforce entities, optimize your business processes through automation, empowering your sales teams to drive revenue and improve the customer experience. 

How Does Salesforce Connector Work?

The Salesforce Connector is the easiest and fastest way to implement top Salesforce integration patterns. The connector supports read, create, upsert, and delete operations across Salesforce objects, not to mention bulk operations when working with larger data sets. 

Do you have a custom Salesforce instance? No problem! The connector allows you to use custom fields and entities to solve integration needs for any custom instance. 

Salesforce Connector—Features and Functions

Integration with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems

The Salesforce Connector allows you to integrate Salesforce with your ERP and finance systems like SAP and NetSuite, so you never worry about stale or inaccurate data. The integration gives your sales team accurate, real-time customer data from a single system. 

Data Collection

With Salesforce Connector, you can aggregate data from Salesforce orgs, ERP systems, and other customer relationship management (CRM) tools into one Salesforce instance. Doing so allows users across the business to generate reports with improved efficiency and accuracy, as they no longer have to switch back and forth from different systems and then manually merge the data. 

Improve Customer Experiences

By integrating Salesforce with your marketing applications like Marketo, you can deliver a consistent customer experience across any channel that helps improve customer satisfaction and increase revenue. 

Digital Transformation

Whether you’re modernizing your technology systems or recently acquired a new company, the Salesforce Connector helps you migrate data from those legacy systems into Salesforce automatically. 

How Salesforce Connector Simplifies Development 

With a streamlined, low-code interface to all Salesforce APIs in one place, the Salesforce Connector helps to simplify development. The connector is ready out of the box in Mulesoft’s desktop integration development environment (IDE), Anypoint Studio, and the web-based IDE, Anypoint Flow Designer. As an example, you can build a simple data sync using Flow Designer, and authenticating the connection would be as easy as filling out a form. 

Once authenticated, the Salesforce Connector makes it a snap to interact with your system by providing you with a list of operations. The connector automatically chooses between Salesforce SOAP API, REST API, Bulk API, and streaming API based on the operation you choose, so you can focus your energy on your business requirements. The Salesforce Connector also supports various authentication mechanisms supported by Salesforce.
