Marketo is one of the biggest Marketing Automation Platform in the market. With its modular design and a range of different pricing options, it’s an excellent choice for businesses of all shapes and sizes. It basically serves as a one-stop shop for all your marketing needs with its email marketing, lead management, analytical analysis, social marketing, and reports management features. A Marketo Integration is one of the most sought after custom functionalities that we’ve received over the years.
If you’ve been in business for a fair amount of time, you’d know a single platform or software can’t do justice to your efforts entirely on its own. It’s an age-old rule to never put all your eggs in one basket. When it comes to Marketo or any other Marketing automation platform for that matter, it’s always good to integrate it with a CRM platform. A Marketo CRM Integration with SugarCRM opens a ton of opportunities for your business to track and nurture leads, analyze your audience, and properly gauge the effectiveness of your marketing efforts.
How to Integrate Marketo with SugarCRM
It’s fairly easy, you can integrate Marketo with SugarCRM with a Marketo Connector. As the name suggests, the Marketo Connector serves as a connection point between your Marketo platform and SugarCRM. It syncs your Account and Opportunities to Sugar one directionally whereas Contacts and Leads are synced bi-directionally.
It’s true that the Marketo Connector covers a lot of ground in terms of what you might need but it’s always good to go for a number of different modifications and customizations to help you get the most out of a Marketo Integration for your business. We at Rolustech have worked extensively on the Marketo Connector to help organizations reach their true potential with the features and functionalities they need in their Marketo Integration with SugarCRM.
