Pre-built resources from AppExchange and OmniStudio help teams implement automation quickly

San Francisco — Dec 2, 2020 — Salesforce [NYSE: CRM], the global leader in CRM, today introduced Einstein Automate – an end-to-end workflow automation solution that empowers people and businesses to be more productive. Einstein Automate delivers automation capabilities designed for every business function and industry that enable anyone in a company to build intelligent workflows and integrate data across any system with clicks, not code.

Organizations are shifting to digital-first customer experiences and creating more data from more systems than ever before. They are transforming time-consuming, mundane tasks – from processing insurance quotes to verifying user account information. This transformation creates the need for a technology platform to drive productivity with intelligent, automated workflows and data integration. However, only 25 percent of IT leaders say their current technology maximizes employee productivity. As a result, organizations are increasingly turning to new workflow automation technology to help employees become more productive and do their best work. 

“In today’s climate, every organization faces a digital imperative to automate complex processes and free up employee time to focus on customer success,” said Sarah Franklin, EVP & GM of Platform, Trailhead and AppExchange at Salesforce. “With Einstein Automate, everyone can change the speed of work and be more productive through intelligent workflow automation.”

“Our ultimate goal is to expedite the digital transformation of our customers so they can better manage energy efficiency and aid the global energy transition to carbon neutrality,” said Marc Lallemand, CIO, at Engie Belgium. “Using Salesforce’s pre-built resources and libraries of best practices, we’ve dramatically cut down the time needed to go digital, which allows for better customer experiences as we can easily automate tasks using industry-specific workflows.”

Automate anything to be more productive

The new Flow Orchestrator is a low-code workflow development tool that allows users to compose workflows that automate complex, multi-user processes and approvals. Flow Orchestrator speeds up projects and processes with AI-generated next steps and recommendations that prompt users throughout processes and quickly identify bottlenecks causing delays. For example, the mortgage approval process, which is complex and requires extensive documentation and verification, can be streamlined into an automated workflow that helps process applications seamlessly and without delays.

Integrate everything faster with clicks, not code

The new MuleSoft Composer for Salesforce is the fastest and easiest way to connect disparate apps and data to Salesforce and develop a 360 degree view of the customer without developing any new code. Unlocking and connecting data across apps and systems is one of the biggest challenges businesses face. MuleSoft’s new The State of Business and IT Innovation report shows more than 80 percent of line of business employees want easy access to data and IT capabilities in order to be productive as digital projects increase. MuleSoft Composer for Salesforce allows administrators and other business users to move faster with a library of pre-built connectors and templates to easily automate integrations. For example, Salesforce admins can quickly and easily connect their organization’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and payments processing systems to Sales Cloud to automate the quote-to-cash process, streamlining sales operations and improving seller productivity.
