SANTA BARBARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–HG Insights®, the global leader in technology intelligence, has updated its Salesforce integration application with its recently-launched Platform 2.0. The improved HG Salesforce Connector integrates directly with the HG Insights Platform, enabling customers to have a more enhanced experience within the Salesforce organization with real-time data to navigate rapidly changing markets. 

HG Salesforce Connector provides powerful insights into the technologies a company uses, enabling customers to decide which companies are the best fit for their product or solution, uncover new business opportunities, make better business decisions, and craft hyper-targeted approaches. Users can activate HG Insights in Salesforce natively, extending their current work processes, to optimize their Go-To-Market motions. 

78% of marketers say their customer engagement is data-driven and use up to 12 data sources to obtain customer data (1). For a competitive advantage in today’s market, businesses need to enrich the data within their Salesforce organization with accurate firmographic and technology intelligence. But with legacy data enrichment tools, the average match rate is around 60-70% (2). With HG Insights, businesses can expect a 90% match rate alongside the market-leading technology intelligence in Platform 2.0. Ultimately, HG customers will be able to better understand their market and grow their business by activating information directly within their CRM.

HG Salesforce Connector is an easy-to-use integration with a quick setup that’s almost like pushing a button within the new HG Insights Platform. Customers can easily leverage HG Insights’ high-quality technology intelligence to target companies with the highest propensity to buy, then operationalize that data in Salesforce. 

Operationalize Quality Data and Drive Quality Results 

HG Insights gives customers access to industry-leading, quality datasets with broad coverage on 12 million companies and 15,000+ installed technologies.

Integrating your Salesforce organization with the HG Insights Platform allows you to:

  • Identify and reach prospects most likely to buy much earlier in the buying journey, even before competitors are aware of the prospect’s interest

  • Equip and enable sales teams to target companies with the highest propensity to buy
