Embracing AI: Our Journey with Salesforce Einstein

No beating around the bush here: the surge in AI has surely shaken up the town in recent years. While it’s actually been around for a while now, with Salesforce first launching Einstein in 2016, the platform has grown and transformed exponentially since then, integrating more sophisticated features, expanding its capabilities across the Salesforce ecosystem, and making AI accessible to a wider range of CRM users in different roles. This progression reflects the growing importance of AI in business operations and its potential to drive transformative outcomes. 

Now, with the launch of Einstein 1, Salesforce is bringing in advanced GenAI features, with newer capabilities seamlessly blending with existing predictive tools, all supported by a comprehensive, reliable, automated, and open Customer 360 platform.

So, what do we think about it?

Our journey with Einstein, and well, AI in general, began with curiosity and a touch of skepticism, and we’re sure we weren’t alone in that. But as we dove into its capabilities, especially over the past year, our confidence in AI skyrocketed. From predictive analytics to intelligent automation, Einstein has empowered us to make data-driven decisions with more precision, just feeding our curiosity for what else it can help us achieve. In turn, this newfound confidence hasn’t just improved our operations; it’s also enabled us to positively recommend AI features to our clients.

As consultants in the RevOps space, the focus has consistently been on optimizing strategies around processes, people, tools, and data to help teams work smarter (not harder), while ensuring alignment and maximizing the performance of their revenue engine. Salesforce Einstein fits perfectly into this narrative, providing actionable insights and automating routine tasks. This allows our clients to concentrate on what truly matters: building relationships and driving revenue.

Incorporating AI is trending, for sure. But after trying and applying it internally and now making recommendations, we believe it’s not just a trendy move; it’s a strategic one. It aligns with current industry discussions about the future of work and digital transformation. By embracing Einstein, we’re not only keeping pace with these conversations but also leading them, helping our clients navigate the complexities—and their own skepticism—of AI so that they can take a step forward, harnessing its full potential.

Understanding these features is crucial for readers because AI is no longer a futuristic concept—it’s a practical tool that can significantly enhance efficiency, productivity, and decision-making. By integrating Salesforce Einstein into their operations, businesses can stay ahead of the curve, deliver better customer experiences and achieve sustainable growth. We’re constantly learning and applying new insights to deliver the most up-to-date and reliable solutions to our clients.
