Salesforce Excel Connector: Step-by-Step Guide

Salesforce Excel Connector Design

For many organizations, Salesforce is the single source of truth on data for customers, prospects, pipelines, revenue, and more. Over the years, it has empowered organizations to think strategically and make data-driven decisions to drive business growth.

Yet as the volume of data that Salesforce users need to update grows, the need for fast and flexible data management does, too.

Enter Microsoft Excel.

Excel is a powerful and sophisticated data management tool that has been developed over more than four decades. Manipulating records in a spreadsheet is far more efficient than in a CRM.

Getting data from spreadsheets into CRMs isn’t straightforward, however. As well, managing CRM data in offline spreadsheets introduces a great deal of risk to data security and hygiene.

Enter Valorx Fusion.

Fusion is a powerful Salesforce-Excel Connector. It enables you to easily manage live CRM data from your spreadsheets (and make bulk edits) without needing exports or imports.

Fusion’s seamless Salesforce Excel connection is a time-saver, and improves data hygiene for the entire organization. You can bulk edit live Salesforce data without any local storage of sensitive client data.

What is a Salesforce Excel Connector?

At its core, a Salesforce Excel Connector bridges Salesforce and Microsoft Excel. After an initial setup, you can transfer and manage your CRM data between the two platforms for the purpose of editing it.

The real magic, however, happens when such connectors let you work with your live CRM data directly from existing spreadsheets. This eliminates the need to export data from Salesforce and import it back after edits. That’s exactly what you get with Valorx Fusion.

Why Salesforce users need a Salesforce Excel Connector

Managing your CRM data in Salesforce and Excel is far from ideal. Navigating between these two platforms introduces risks to data security and hygiene, among other problems.

Here are some of the common challenges for CRM users:

  • Manual handling of data leads to human error: The constant need to import and export your Salesforce data continually increases the risk of data degradation, loss of data, and a lack of visibility for leadership.

  • Time-consuming processes: Repeatedly exporting data from Salesforce to Excel, editing, and then importing is a major drain on productivity.

  • Lack of real-time updates: Outdated data leads to poor decision-making for the organization.

  • Security concerns: Constantly moving your data out of Salesforce is a major security risk. You also risk becoming uncompliant with clients' data handling practices.
