Danville, CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2017
Lingk Inc. today announced LingkSync for Instructure’s Canvas learning management system (LMS) and Salesforce. This new partnership empowers institutions and businesses to connect with their students, customers, partners and employees in entirely new ways. Lingk is the provider of the wizard-based LingkSync integration apps. The LingkSync for Canvas and Salesforce app enables academic data from the Instructure Canvas LMS to be combined seamlessly with Salesforce customer relationship management (CRM) data to enhance and expand student lifecycle use of Salesforce and Canvas.
Built on the Lingk Platform, LingkSync for Canvas and Salesforce is currently available for early release at http://www.lingk.io/lingksync-for-canvas/.
For learning relationship management (LRM) and analytics use cases in Salesforce (like Sales Cloud or Wave Analytics) or Canvas/Canvas Data, combining CRM data with LMS data enables new administrator and student experiences across the Student Lifecycle.
LingkSync™ for Canvas® and Salesforce Key Features
Canvas and Salesforce Admins
System Administrators using the LingkSync app can easily synchronize Canvas and Salesforce.org data to power new analytics, dashboards, reports, notifications and automated workflows supporting user requests for more student lifecycle data. The LingkSync app provides a first-of-a-kind wizard-based and self-service configuration experience for System Administrators to quickly gain access to an expansive amount of Student Lifecycle data without the need for costly, time-consuming and complex integration projects or the need to hire a System Integrator. For maximum flexibility and efficiency, the LingkSync app provides default auto mapping and easy orchestration to both standard Salesforce and HEDA (Higher Education Data Architecture) data objects. Data syncing can be run manually or automatically at scheduled intervals for increased freshness.
Canvas and Salesforce End Users
End Users will have immediate access to an extensive amount of LMS and CRM data fields to allow users to build new and enhanced views, dashboards and reports to gain powerful data insights. With access to more Student Lifecycle data users can create new use cases that help to automate and transform their work.
