Broadview Networks, a provider of cloud-based business communication services, unveiled the new CRM (Customer Relationship Management) Connector that is designed to integrate the company’s OfficeSuite cloud-based business phone system with and any other TAPI-enabled (Telephony Application Programming Interface) CRM application.

Businesses now have the option to realize fully integrated communications in order to enhance employee efficiency and effectiveness and equipping their sales and support teams to respond to phone calls by having relevant information automatically displayed.

Jeff Blackey, vice president of marketing at Broadview, commented, “The OfficeSuite system by itself helps organizations improve productivity and flexibility. Integrating with and other CRMs takes it to a higher level. When a sales or support professional has all of the data they need in front of them, automatically, they can quickly focus on their goals instead of wasting time and money navigating systems.”
