Delacon’s call tracking solution is integrated with Salesforce, which allows for the call data captured by Delacon’s solution to be sent to Salesforce. Following the same principle as the “web to lead” functionality, a new lead will automatically be created in Salesforce and populated with the captured call data. We call this the “call to lead” functionality.
If a caller telephones from the same phone number that already exists in either the Account or the Contact objects, then an Activity Task will be created against the relevant object instead of a new lead being created.
Delacon has two Salesforce integration options – Post-Call Integration and Real-Time Integration.
In the non-live integration the newly created lead will be available between five and twenty minutes after the call ends. All available call fields will be populated with this option including the call duration, feedback outcome, call recording file link, keywords used and the referral URL.
To access the Salesforce record, the operator needs to enter the phone number of the caller into the search field of Salesforce after gathering that information from the caller. If the operator doesn’t have the phone number, they can search for the latest lead entry.
With Delacon’s live integration, the data is available in real time – so that the sales team can use this information to influence their conversation with the lead. In essence, Delacon’s solution provides invaluable data to the sales team of what the lead has done prior to the call. It’s important to note that under the live integration there are certain fields that won’t be populated including the call duration, feedback outcome, sale amount and call recording file link. The fields that will be populated include the call start time, device used, keywords used, number dialed, referral URL, search engine used and the landing page.
To access the live Salesforce lead record of the caller while they are on the phone, there are two identifiers – the telephone number or a unique key or code associated with the phone call that’s generated by Delacon’s system.
If you’re using a VoIP phone connection, we can display the caller’s phone number or the code on the operator’s telephone screen. If you’re using a PSTN system we can only display the caller’s phone number. We can also set up a whisper message prior to the call connection that will tell the operator the caller’s phone number or the code. Please note the whisper message is ineffective if you use an IVR.
The identifier options for each network are covered in the following chart.
|Whisper message stating unique key||Yes||Yes|
|Unique key or code on telephone screen||Yes||No|
|Phone number on telephone screen||Yes||Yes|
The operator can enter the phone number or unique code into the search field of Salesforce to access the newly created lead.
With the lead, your sales team can add in the name and company of the lead and convert the lead into an account once they are qualified. By mapping the call tracking data to the Account fields, you will be able to keep an accurate history of the entire customer’s journey.

This following user guide will give you step-by-step instructions on how to integrate Delacon’s call tracking solution with Salesforce for the first time.
Step 1. Contact Delacon
Contact your Account Manager or Delacon Support to enable the integration for your account. Please note, that this integration is a chargeable feature and the applicable charges are outlined in your application form. They will consist of a one-off setup fee as well as a recurring monthly fee.
Step 2. Check that you have the right Salesforce version
For this integration to work correctly you will need an Enterprise or higher edition of Salesforce. The integration will not work with the essential or professional edition. For more info, please visit the Salesforce page: https://www.salesforce.com/au/editions-pricing/sales-cloud/
Step 3. Log into Delacon and find the Salesforce integration
Once the integration has been enabled, log into the Classic Delacon portal at https://pla.delaconcorp.com/site/jsp/login_r.jsp
Navigate to the integrations menu and select Salesforce from the drop-down menu.
Step 4. Select the CID and authorise access to Salesforce
Select the appropriate CIDs that you wish to integrate with Salesforce from the list and click Authorize.
You will then be prompted to log into your Salesforce account.

Live lead only: Always creates a new lead for every call.
Live: The system will check for existing accounts, contacts and leads (in that order) in Salesforce for an incoming number. If any of the above objects are found, an activity is created against that object. If no object is found, a new lead is created.
