HootSuite and Toucan: Birds of a Feather

By Hootsuite | 5 years ago | 24 Comments

HootSuite now integrates with Toucan, the official Twitter application for Salesforce CRM.

HootSuite users can now import all their profiles into Toucan, thereby fusing the powerful features both platforms offer. With Toucan and HootSuite, you can generate leads and contacts from Twitter followers, communicate with sales prospects via Twitter, and respond to Salesforce support cases through tweets. Together, Toucan and HootSuite users will also have access to advanced statistics from the ow.ly URL shortener thereby delivering quantifiable return on investment (ROI) for social networks integrated within Salesforce.

This union proves that birds of a feather really do flock together. Ca-caw.

You can read more about the merry union here.

Excellent, hootsuite is a fantastic application where we can manage our social profiles. Now, it becomes pretty easier to shift between multiple profiles.

Looks great although hootsuite would be much better if we could group clients accounts together within the admin panel.

I really like your payment plan, although my team is new to hootsuite but i hope it will turn out prudentially.

I here Toucan is working very well, however bit frustrated I can't seem to find any valuable feedback above in these comments. I also checked a few things out and not many of the people above are using this tool??? Can anybody share some real comments on Toucan.

I couldn't live without hootsuite! All my social networks roled into one. I always recommend it to my clients! Tweeting - inkedin and even Facebook are important tools in brand awareness and helping "get clicked on"

Hootsuite has revolutionised the way our blogging works, every story we post is uploaded straight to our Facebook page and Twitter account which we find extremely useful.

I also use Nimble - I have not tried Toucan / Salesforce, but really like the concept of a 'Social CRM'.

It becomes really very messy to communicate from different tabs / places - so pulling it all into Nimble really just makes sense - and definitely makes life easier, if you do use social media for direct sales and marketing.

Interesting, we use hootsuite to push out all of our social updates - can this be used on any other CRM system?

We've been using Hootsuite for a couple of months now - excellent multi-account management capabilities. Being able to monitor activity on different social sites (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook) on one interface is great!

Salesforce was blatantly ahead of its time, makes sense of it being bought by IBM.

Old thread, Looks like sales force had their heads screwed on years ago. Makes a bit more sense of their recent acquisition by IBM FOR OVER 1 billion dollars.

Haven't come across a company that use it to its fullest.
