Integration with messengers such as WhatsApp is often used to ensure that contact data is automatically synchronised between the two systems and that messages can be sent automatically when certain events occur.

Advantages: Why you should integrate your CRM system with WhatsApp

Customer relationship management (CRM) systems are key software applications for many businesses. Nowadays, CRM software is generally indispensable, especially for sales, marketing and support teams, as it contains relevant information about customers and prospects.

For this reason, messengers like WhatsApp should also be connected to your Hubspot CRM. Typically, you will also want to use relevant contacts and data from your CRM for your conversational commerce activities, and automatically push updates you receive via Messenger to your CRM to help you work more efficiently.

With over two billion active users, WhatsApp is the world's most popular messenger, followed by Facebook Messenger. Facebook and Instagram are the most popular social media platforms. Instagram, in particular, also plays a major role in direct communication between users via direct messages. For many companies, these channels are becoming increasingly important for engaging with customers. In many cases, they have almost completely replaced email.

This is mainly because text messages are almost always read. WhatsApp messages have an open rate of around 98% and are typically read in less than an hour. Messengers are also more personal than traditional marketing channels and allow for a much faster exchange of information.
