Search for Salesforce

Supercharge Your Salesforce Search

Search all of your enterprise content
without leaving Salesforce

Enterprise Search for Salesforce is now available for Salesforce Service Cloud, Sales Cloud, and custom Salesforce implementations. Your customer service and sales representatives live in Salesforce, so why make them search for knowledge in SharePoint, file shares and other ECM systems? Enterprise Search for Salesforce provides instant, contextual, enterprise-wide search results that are related to the specific case or opportunity your employees are viewing. And best of all, a limited version of this application can be downloaded from the Salesforce.com AppExchange.

AnchorExample Use Cases:

Salesforce.com Search EnhancementAccess to Corporate Information FAST, in a Format Users Expect

  • Native Salesforce search leaves a lot to be desired. The way results are organized by object type is confusing for users, requiring them to dig into “more” pages of results to find what they want. All of this assumes that what they actually want is also stored within Salesforce, which is rarely the case. By using BA Insight Search for Salesforce, users are presented with relevant results regardless of where the data is stored. Case records, documents, emails, opportunities, and order forms all show up in a single interface, with the most relevant documents shown first. The BA Insight Software Portfolio also delivers advanced refinement to quickly drill through the results, along with instant document preview to view and inspect the returned documents to find exactly what the user is looking for…in seconds!

SharePoint as a Customer Portal

  • Deploying a feature-rich customer portal through SharePoint delivers value to your end customers and makes the lives of your internal users easier. The combination of BA Insight connectors to Salesforce and your other enterprise document and customer management systems (i.e. Documentum, Exchange, SharePoint Online) provide a single secured location of customer knowledge.
     
  • The BA Insight Software Portfolio adds feature rich end user applications to allow advanced preview of documents and visual refinement of results to quickly identify the content being searched for. Our AutoClassifier automatically applies your enterprise taxonomy and associated keywords to all documents, with zero user interaction. The result is a customer facing portal with all the information they need, directly accessed from within Salesforce by your agents and sales professionals.
