No matter how big or small your organization is, it’s extremely important to maintain your brand value and remain competitive. The best way maintain or improve your reputation is to keep your customers satisfied and happy. A robust customer relationship management software like Salesforce is the perfect go-to solution that can help you in providing services that exceed the expectations of your customers. As a leading cloud-based and most powerful CRM software, Salesforce not just manages your customer relationship but can also provide end-to-end support for all your business requirements.
Salesforce offers its customers an innovative software-as-a-service solution that allows it to be accessible from anywhere. The highly flexible Salesforce CRM is completely customizable and can be tailored as per the business needs of an organization. However, Salesforce implementation can be overwhelming and requires proper planning, commitment, dedication and sponsorship from the executive team. While you might think of implementing Salesforce CRM on your own, you must defer from doing so unless your company has the necessary expertise and resources to manage a complex implementation. In fact, handling implementations internally without expertise can result in a faulty implementation and it isn’t a risk worth taking.
You must thus consider seeking professional help from an experienced Salesforce Partner who follows a structured implementation approach that helps in hastening the implementation process. Implementations that are performed with a well-thought-out and structured framework, are more likely to succeed resulting in faster return-on-investment (ROI). One such experienced and reliable partner is Girikon that delivers the best-in-class solutions to its customers by leveraging the Application Implementation Method (AIM) in addition to Project Management methodology.
The overall Implementation strategy followed by the company has been divided into the following five phases:
Pre-planning and Scoping: The scope and other aspects of the project are defined at a granular level by the team members during this phase. Apart from this, metrics to measure the project progress, and the reporting process is also set up by the team members. Basic project milestones and implementation schedules are created during this phase while the company indulges in business process identification, allocating a cross-functional team who can review the current process, identifying pain points, and everything that is required to back the process in the new environment.
Design Phase: During this stage, the company’s strategy is to use a mix of design documents and prototype demo to develop the core part of the new system. This complete set-up paves way for a methodology that helps in fulfilling the business requirement, establishing design specifications, and assembling them in the system.
Development: Consultants at Girikon design business-specific solutions keeping the operational aspects in mind. The solution provided would envisage the work done to fill the gaps that were identified and would also examine the process changes or the developments that need to be done. Basis the inputs received development is accomplished within the defined technical environment. During this phase system infrastructure is set up and data transformation needs are constructed.
Production: The aforementioned stages are to assure that the system is ready to be shifted into production. So, once the final design and assembling of the components are approved, it is then subjected to unit testing and cross-enterprise testing. During this stage, tuning of the production environment and data conversion is accomplished.
In a nutshell, it can be inferred that a successful CRM implementation requires a structured implementation approach that can help reduce user stress while generating greater return-on-investment. So, if you too are embarking on your Salesforce implementation journey, make sure you get in touch with one of the best Salesforce Partners like Girikon.

What is Salesforce APIs?
Salesforce provides programmatic access to the organization’s information using simple, powerful, and secure application programming interfaces [API’s].
An API allows different components to interact. Most automation makes heavy use of these lists of commands to connect and integrate. Salesforce can also call API’s to retrieve data from other systems or services.
We have got a series of APIs and at present Salesforce support 10 API’s and each of them has its different use case. Though, they all have a similar purpose i.e. of accessing data from Force.com or Database.com, yet there are some key differences too which are worth explaining. First, it’s important to note that all these APIs operate identically across Force.com and Database.com.
SOAP API: This API is useful to integrate Salesforce organization data with other application using SOAP.
REST API: This is useful to access objects in your Salesforce organization using REST.
Bulk API: It is based on REST principles and is optimized for loading or deleting large sets of data.
Metadata API: Helps to retrieve, deploy, create, update, or delete customizations for the org. It is used to migrate changes from a sandbox or testing org to the production environment.
Tooling API: It is used to build custom development tools or apps for Salesforce Platform applications.
Streaming API: It is useful for applications that require general notification of data changes in an organization.
Apex REST API: This API is useful to build your own REST API in APEX.
Apex SOAP API: This API is useful to create custom SOAP web service. This API exposes Apex Classes as SOAP web service.
Chatter REST API: These APIs are used for Chatter feeds, users, groups, and followers, Chatter REST API provides programmatic access to files, recommendations, topics, notifications, Data.com purchasing, and more.
com API: It provides 100% complete, high quality data, updated in real-time in the cloud, and with comprehensive coverage worldwide.
REST API Callouts
REST callouts are based on HTTP. Callout request is associated with an HTTP method and an endpoint. And, this HTTP method indicates what type of action is desired.
GET request (GET is an HTTP method) is the simplest request. As, GET request is similar to navigating to an address in the browser. At the time, when you visit a web page, the browser performs a GET request behind the scenes.
Salesforce Integration from one org to another using REST API Callouts
For implementing this integration from Source org to Target org, we need to perform some activities in Target Org and Source Org.
Step 1: We need to perform below activities in Target org.
Create a Connected App.
Connected App: For an external application that needs to authenticate with Salesforce, we need to create a connected app so as to inform Salesforce about the new authentication entry point. Connected app uses standard OAuth 2.0 protocol to authenticate.
Create Rest Web Serviceto fetch data based on the requirement of SOURCE org and send it back to SOURCE org.
Step 2: And, for the Source org below pointers needs to be followed.
Create an apex controller.
Create a Visualforce page.
Create a remote site setting for the URL of Target Org.
In this way, you will be able to get the list of Accounts of Target org into Source org.
Benefits of Salesforce Integration using REST API Callouts
Salesforce Rest API is easy to work with, has simple integration, as well as simple HTTP requests.
It has shown remarkable success in the enterprise customer level and cannot be countered.
It is a perfect technology choice that can be used with mobile applications and Web 2.0 projects.
Rest API has lightweight requests and responsive framework.
The API pushes and pulls the information between Salesforce and the desired destination. Data entry is time-consuming and repetitive. If the reps are spending valuable time in data typing instead of helping the customers, anything we can do to give them that time back is helpful.
Now, we understand how Salesforce API Integration works, as well as how it is relatively easy to set up if we know what we are doing. Salesforce APIs can work alongside most of the other apps we use on a regular basis. They can bring several different benefits, the biggest of them, giving time back to the sales reps so they can serve their customers.
