The team chatting app Slack has taken the business world by storm, and for good reason. Slack is a powerful tool for teams to use to stay on top of tasks, share new ideas and become less dependent on the email inbox.
We use Slack extensively here at GHT and happily recommend it to you if your work involves collaborating with groups and communicating about ongoing projects.
Given our love of Infusionsoft and our facility with its backend API, we started playing around with passing our vital business data into Slack automatically.
Turns out, this was a hugely useful feature for us.
As we got going, new ideas for stats we’d love to see from Infusionsoft started springing to mind, and we built those as well.
ChanFusion lets us see how many new leads we’re getting, how many sales we’re making, and how our partners are doing in helping us promote our software.
When you measure something, you are able to tell the truth about whether you’re achieving the results you’re after.
ChanFusion lets us automatically pass the vital stats of our business from Infusionsoft straight into Slack. It’s proven highly motivating and incredibly valuable for us.
Best of all, we get to have a searchable record of how we’ve been doing over time. We can pass daily, weekly, monthly or year-to-date totals into Slack every hour, every day or once a week.
Over time, this info accumulates and lets us look back and notice trends in our business that we can then trace back to effective marketing campaigns.
The end result of ChanFusion for our business has been always having a finger on the pulse of our most important business numbers.
If you run your business using Infusionsoft as your CRM, I highly recommend you check out ChanFusion. Even if you’re not a Slack user, you’ll love having a place where you can always see your progress.
