When people speak different languages, clarity of information can suffer. The same is true with workflows. Here’s one example that may be familiar: your sales team uses Salesforce to manage customer relationships, while your tech team uses Jira to deliver the products and services your customers need. Unfortunately, the gap between Salesforce and Jira forces teams to constantly switch context. Manually-entered input leads to errors and added complexity. Poor visibility across platforms creates inaccurate case status and frustrated customers.
Effective cross-functional workflows require access to real-time information. That’s why we created Connector for Salesforce & Jira—to give your teams a shared perspective of customer workflows.
ServiceRocket’s Connector seamlessly maps Salesforce records to Jira issues, generating a single source of truth on the status of tasks—comprehensive, real-time information—across platforms. And with its easy implementation, users are often up and running in an hour.
Built to adapt to your business processes, Connector streamlines and integrates Salesforce and Jira cross-functional workflows, enabling everyone to collaborate on a common and tracked goal, with visibility into account interactions and changes in status as soon as they happen. With Connector for Salesforce & Jira, unreliable and redundant data is eliminated. Valuable time is saved by not having to juggle two separate systems for everyday customer management tasks. Your sales team can capture CRM data and close business without delays, while your tech team manages projects, tasks, bugs and issues that come from Salesforce to Jira without error or complexity. Greater transparency means that customer needs are met and exceeded.
“ We see many Connector for Salesforce & Jira customers who are able to utilize the tool in about an hour. By integrating Salesforce and Jira, teams immediately see benefits like no more context switching, improved data quality, reduced friction and better cross-team collaboration."

Two-way record creation and association ensures issues are kept up-to-date, consolidated and easily accessible. The right data is always available across both Salesforce and Jira platforms via:
License consolidation helps reduce costs by optimizing the total number of user licenses you need to work within Salesforce and Jira.
