Salesforce Launches AI-Powered Einstein Relationship Insights (ERI)
Salesforce has launched Einstein Relationship Insights (ERI), an AI-powered virtual assistant. This virtual assistant skims through the digital space to uncover insights and discover new leads directly fed to Salesforce CRM.
What is Salesforce Einstein Relationship Insights (ERI)?
Salesforce ERI is a desktop plug-in with a browser extension. It offers a one-touch CRM update to sales reps. Salespeople can extract more information from each data source by directly importing insights to their CRM. So, it combines the power of CRM, Intent Data, and Sales Intelligence with AI and Machine Learning capabilities in one single product.
According to Salesforce, with AI, ERI saves individual sales reps more than a dozen hours every week on manual prospecting and delivers more than 5x the number of insights.
At the time of this announcement, Jason Briggs, Senior Director of Product Management, Einstein Relationship Insights. said, “Salespeople should be able to focus on the areas that matter most, like high-touch online or in-person customer interactions, and leverage technology as an assistant to handle the mundane task of finding relevant insights.
Jason added, “ERI can do this at a pace and scale that is impossible for any human to do. This is a glimpse into the future of how humans will successfully work in tandem with AI.”
What makes ERI special?
Salesforce ERI autonomously explores the internet and internal data sources. ERI helps CRM users to discover relationships between customers, prospects and companies. This sales intelligence is useful for sales reps in closing deals faster.
