Get Smart Answers for Your Customers with AI 

Struggling to keep your chatbot conversations flowing? This feature update is the solution. Just integrate the Answer Questions with Knowledge copilot action into your bot. That way when a customer throws your bot a curveball question outside its programmed responses, the Einstein Copilot action steps in like a genius, delivering AI-generated answers.  

To find the perfect response, the copilot first taps into your knowledge articles. And when it does, the Einstein Copilot platform uses its AI to craft a clear and informative response. The bot, ever the smooth operator, delivers the AI-generated response directly to your customer, reducing the need for human intervention and leaving customers happy and informed. 

Stop Downtime in Its Tracks Using Proactive Asset Tools 

Equipment downtime is the enemy of productivity. But what if you could predict and prevent equipment failures before they happen? Try updated Proactive Asset Service in Salesforce Field Service, your secret weapon for maximising uptime and keeping your operations running smoothly. It leverages the combined strength of Data Cloud and CRM Analytics to unlock valuable insights from your asset data and track equipment age, usage patterns, and past maintenance history. 

But it doesn’t stop there! By updating these data in the Asset Health Score dashboard, get a clearer picture of your equipment’s condition – good, fair, or critical. And, what’s more? Timely notifications alert you when an asset needs attention, allowing you to address potential issues before they escalate and keep your business running at peak performance. 

Marketing Cloud 

Prioritise Campaigns with Waterfall Segments (Generally Available) 

The updated Waterfall Segments are now generally available! This powerful feature lets you create a structured and prioritised list of offers, ensuring each customer receives the most relevant promotion for them. 

Forget bombarding customers with multiple options. Waterfall Segments guarantee each person receives only one, targeted promotion. You can craft a tiered list of segments, with the most valuable offers reaching the right audience first. It offers the flexibility of rearranging segments within your waterfall to adjust priorities as needed. Enjoy a streamlined user experience for building and managing your waterfall segments, while leveraging even more precise targeting capabilities. 

Boost Your Marketing Automation with Flow Builder Enhancements 

Marketing automation just got easier with the latest Flow Builder updates for Marketing Cloud Growth that enable: 

  • Effortless Consent Collection: Automatically create consent records when someone submits a signup form. No extra steps needed! 
  • Smarter User Management: Remove users from flows based on specific exit conditions, keeping your data clean. 
  • Duplicate Reduction: Prevent messy data by checking for duplicate records before creating new ones.

This means you can save time by automating common tasks, improve data quality for better results, and personalise your marketing efforts for higher engagement.
