Batchbook today announced a new integration with LinkedIn, the world's largest professional network with more than 187 million members. The small businesses, entrepreneurs and other professionals who use Batchbook now can hook up LinkedIn profiles directly to their contact records for a deeper level of insight into the people in their super-charged digital customer database.
The LinkedIn integration is the most recent enhancement to Batchbook, a cloud-based small business CRM application. Batchbook users can now search their LinkedIn networks of connections for recent status updates, job titles, and many more valuable bits of information. If they are not connected via LinkedIn, they can send an invitation to connect right from the Batchbook contact detail page. All LinkedIn data shared in Batchbook is mindful of the privacy settings that LinkedIn users have set.
"With this integration, we're helping our customers benefit from the hyper-connected social networks to build deeper and better relationships with their customers," said Pamela O'Hara, CEO and founder of Batchbook, in a statement. "Social networks are the heartbeat of business and an invaluable tool to help companies connect with their clients. We are continually evolving our own product to help small businesses interact with their clients in a real-time environment.
"LinkedIn connects the world's professionals to make them more productive and successful, a mission that mirrors our own. Building an integration was a natural step for us to help small businesses create a personal touch with the contacts in their customer database while taking advantage of the efficiency of technology," she continued.
