      Did you know, 78% of consumers discontinue their relationships with brands due to poor customer service?

      That’s quite an alarming percentage, isn’t it?

      In today’s tech landscape, delivering impeccable customer service is everything. The reason being that the customers’ demands from a brand are constantly on a rise. Not just this, savvy customers want to help themselves in real-time by finding answers to queries.

      If you are a Salesforce Service Cloud user and you have your community hosted on Khoros, then you might be on a lookout for more ways to enhance self-service for your customers.

      Delayed responses to your information-hungry users just don’t cut it! So, how do you ensure that you’re delivering a smooth experience to them? That’s where the need for an integration connector that improves community self-service comes into play.

      Enter – The Khoros-Salesforce Case Connector.


      Our Khoros-Salesforce Case Connector enables your customers to easily navigate to useful pieces of information, all the while improving self-service on your online community.

      How Does the Khoros-Salesforce Case Connector Work?

      When you integrate your Khoros community with Service Cloud using the Khoros-Salesforce Case Connector, it creates a bi-directional sync of information between your community users and support agents.

      The connector equips your community with Salesforce’s case management capabilities. This enables your customers to create or escalate new cases and interact or view cases, without leaving the community. And when this happens, you provide your users with a superlative community experience at lower support costs. Here’s how:

      1. Users can create a case on their Khoros community or SFDC.
      2. The case gets created with the required details in SFDC.
      3. Users can easily edit the case if required. They can see selective fields if they edit the case in SFDC.
      4. Lastly, the case gets listed in the list of cases, both on SFDC and Khoros.

      Let alone creating a case, by implementing the connector in your Khoros community, you empower your Salesforce Service Cloud users to re-open cases, edit them, and much more.

      Advantages of Implementing the Khoros-Salesforce Case Connector in Your Online Community

      Online communities are powerful outlets that brands can leverage to gain deep insights into their customer’s behaviors and preferences. If you already have a customer community, you might be well acquainted by the fact that online communities are an ideal channel for user onboarding and increasing case deflection rates.

      But with customers becoming more informed, their expectations from brands are altering. Now, they look for information that answers ‘why’ they need to purchase a service or product and how it will add value to their operations.

      You must ensure that your community is equipped to deliver exemplary customer support to your users in the form of self-services.

      Our Khoros-Salesforce Case Connector can help with:
