Brand new: Linkedin plugin

Teamleader is proud to announce a very cool and recurringly requested new goody to enhance your CRM experience: the LinkedIn plugin, our newest addition to the Google Chrome plugins made by Teamleader!

A lot of clients were looking forward to this new feature. In light of the release of the feature, we went knocking at Product Manager Robbie De Meyer’s door (read: desk). He puts it this way:

We listen carefully to our clients and fulfil their requests as much as we can. The plugin was a highly anticipated feature and is in line with our strategy to make Teamleader more of an integrated CRM.

The Linkedin plugin is an expansion of the already existing Chrome extension that allows you to track emails to Teamleader from Gmail and Outlook web.

Installing the extension via the Integrations within Teamleader allows you to add contacts and related companies directly from LinkedIn to Teamleader. Did you install the old plugin already? You’ll receive the update automatically!

It also recognizes already present contacts and companies in your CRM. If Teamleader sees someone on LinkedIn whose name resembles one of the contacts in your database, you’ll be able to confirm if this is indeed the corresponding person.

If this is the case, Teamleader checks if the info in the CRM is still up to date. If it isn’t, you can easily choose which info you want to add. See here how it works!

Our own sales are already big fans:

When I’m qualifying leads, I use the plugin to link new contacts to the right company. That makes the qualification easier for the sales. I love it!

Game of Thrones has Maesters, we have Benny: a man whose vast experience, life-long devotion and superior intelligence have made him a walking, talking and inexhaustible source of knowledge about Teamleader - and strong Belgian ales and bass guitar too. Knowledge this hard-working ex-customer success, ex-inside sales, now full-on copywriter is more than willing to share with whoever's asking. "Benny knows" is a phrase so often heard, you tend to forget that a couple of beers make him sound more like a potty-mouthed pirate than a scholar.
