Salesforce has announced the general availability of Unified Conversations for WhatsApp, transforming one-way marketing promotions and service requests into dynamic, two-way conversations from a single WhatsApp number. WhatsApp Integration Brings Service and Marketing Together.

Now, instead of managing separate threads for promotions and support, customers can receive personalized opt-in marketing promotions and individual support all within a single WhatsApp chat. This unified approach allows companies like Agibank to leverage Salesforce data from over 900 hubs within WhatsApp to deliver personalized loan proposals, resolve issues faster, and better support customers in a single conversation.

Why It Matters

Unified Conversations for WhatsApp is powered by Salesforce Data Cloud, allowing companies to consolidate data into Salesforce and create a unified customer profile. This shared profile provides marketers and service agents with the relevant context to deliver trusted experiences in a single chat thread.

Innovation in Action

  • Marketers to segment audiences and create campaigns while service agents see customer interactions to recommend next actions.
  • Healthcare organizations to schedule, confirm, and support procedures within one WhatsApp conversation.
  • Financial institutions to prevent fraud by verifying and assisting with transactions in a single WhatsApp experience.
