Activity tracking in Salesforce
Every DealPoint deal room can be connected to a Salesforce Opportunity with a couple of clicks, automatically pushing fine-grained deal activity to Salesforce with no manual data entry required.
Two-way contact sync
When inviting prospects to a new deal room, DealPoint will display any contacts already connected to the associated opportunity, making it easy to add the right people to the deal room.
On the flip slide, whenever the rep (or the prospect) invites someone new to the deal room, DealPoint checks with Salesforce, and if that person is not already known and associated with the Opportunity, DealPoint will create a new contact inside Salesforce and associate them to the Opportunity.
DealPoint automatically tracks everything that matters in the deal, giving the rep and Sales Ops fine-grained resolution into customer engagement, some of which is simply unavailable from any other system.
- Visits to the deal room
- File / link downloads
- Rep Profile visits
Deal room status
- Room invitations (new people being invited by prospect)
- Updates to Next steps
- File / link uploads
- Web conference participants
Unique perspective of internal decision structure
Seeing prospects send room invites gives the sales team a unique view into the internal decision making structure of the customer, allowing them to research and engage with the true decision makers as those decision makers engage with the deal room.
DealPoint connects to your organization’s Salesforce instance with just a couple of clicks. No API keys or IT intervention required.
To take advantage of any Salesforce API-enabled app (including DealPoint), your organization must have Team or Enterprise Edition, or Pro with API support.
No manual data entry
DealPoint saves reps hours of data entry by automatically pushing next steps, meeting attendees and file uploads to Salesforce.
The CRM should be the system of record, but it’s only as useful as the data that gets entered.
At the dawn of man, we only had a few tools, each one created only after careful consideration of what was actually needed to get the job done.
Today we run the risk of the tools becoming the master, sucking time that should be spent with customers and spitting out process so prescriptive that our natural craftiness atrophies and we’re unable to innovate out in the wild.
Simplifying your tools will give you the space to do what humans have always done best: evaluate a situation, think critically how to take advantage of what you see, then club it to death and drag it home. Or as we say today, absolutely kill this quarter’s numbers.read more

Decision makers are busy people — or at least they should be — and thus they’re terrified of losing an hour of their day to an irrelevant sales call. You can use this fact and cut through the noise by offering a speed demo with an explicit Go/No Go at the end of three...read more

Trade shows aren’t all work: who can honestly say they haven’t stripped down at an after-show party and jumped into the rooftop pool? But many sales teams just turn up at shows without a game plan, and as such they waste a massive lead gen opportunity, not to mention...read more
