There are several Act competitors - One Page CRM and Close.ie - that can capture prospect details directly from LinkedIn, Website etc and directly import them into their CRM system.
This makes building list from scratch really fast and easy and ideal for Start up or new salespeople joining companies.
Is there an Add-on for Act or is this something Act/Swiftpage are working on ?
I second this. Is there anything that a Biz Dev team can use that add prospects through an API of sort? For comparision, Export To CRM which is a chrome addon that connects with Salesforce.
I looked in to writing an integration piece a long time ago and called the VP of development for LinkedIn and they said no. I don't know if their attitude has changed since then but I doubt it. They consider their data to be valuable and if you are able to extract it from their system and put it in a different system essentially for free they don't believe that it is in their best interest.
Thanks for the update!
Once Microsoft purchases them they might be a little more flexible. We'll see what happens.
I know this thread is from last year but I don't suppose the linkedin integration is anything you have revisited? It is something we get asked quite a lot about.
Look here, Linkedin opened up.
ATS = Applicant tracking system = CRM geared towards recruitment rather than sales
