The trend among high-growth companies is to leverage their sales and marketing channels to manage and optimize the customer experiences across all channels including direct, indirect, and digital. But that requires a solid alignment between the two teams that often doesn’t exist. Marketo and Slack have created an integration that provides sales and marketing teams real-time notifications about leads. The integration also delivers campaign issues and system alerts that may impact ongoing campaigns to system administrators through dedicated Slack channels.
