European Sales and Marketing Intelligence vendor Vainu released Workflow Triggers for target account monitoring. Workflows leverage recent enhancements to the company’s firmographics, user interface, and CRM integrations.
Workflows are available for Salesforce, Dynamics 365 Online, HubSpot, and PipeDrive and support Account, Contact, Lead, Opportunity, and Task records.
Workflows setup requires four steps:
- Select the target group for tracking
- Define the filter options such as signal events (e.g., funding, new hires, M&A), data changes (e.g., revenue, employees, address), or new companies in the target group. Over 70 triggers events are available. Data changes may be triggered by any licensed data field.
- Choose the destination (CRM, Slack, email, or webhook).
- Set context including the number and frequency of triggers, additional information, and notes. “For example, if you’re monitoring accounts to launch account-based marketing campaigns, you can update a data field in your CRM object with custom text saying ‘ABM campaign Q3/2021’,” wrote Head of Marketing Aamer Hasu.
Sales Operations can map data fields with custom text, providing context to data updates and workflows.
Workflow Triggers identify “any significant changes in real-time and use them to trigger workflows across your business systems,” said Hasu. “They’re perfect for nudging prospects over the line and discovering sales opportunities you never knew existed.”
Vainu data covers Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Netherlands, France (beta), and the United Kingdom (beta). Users may license one or multiple countries.
One gap in the offering is the lack of support for Sales Engagement Platforms (SEP) such as SalesLoft and Outreach. SEP functionality is a logical extension to Workflow Triggers. While SEPs are less established in Europe than in North America, both companies have opened EMEA sales and support offices in London.
Vainu is offering fourteen-day free trials to the service. Email as a trigger destination is available for all users, but CRM integrations are sold separately.
