GreenRope is a web-based platform that combines CRM, contact management, email marketing, calendaring, sales automation and social media management.

Its social media integration connects email marketing and CRM to social media accounts to manage Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Ping.FM accounts from a single navigation dashboard.

Ways the product benefits social media campaigns

GreenRope’s social media integration tool allows integrated tracking of social media accounts and industry trends without leaving the platform. Dashboard information includes Facebook NewsFeed, Facebook Page feeds and Twitter Lists. Users can schedule posts to multiple accounts across multiple social media channels.
