Updated Range of CRM Integrations
The CXone Spring release from NICE InContact also comes with a range of new CRM integrations to support more contextual customer experiences too. For instance, better Salesforce integrations will give Salesforce users more access to useful customer information.

Additionally, new Salesforce CXone packages will extend the Salesforce lightning service console with integrated quality management, workforce management, and customer feedback apps.
What’s more, a selection of enhanced new pre-built CRM integrations will provide businesses with a wide variety of options for integrating the latest CRM solutions with CXone for a more personalised customer experience and improved agent productivity. Each integration delivers a unified desktop option between real-time interaction handling, and a customer profile from the CRM.
