A HubSpot telephony integration improves internal productivity and saves time that you previously spent on manual tasks. Sounds pretty good, right? In this blog post, we dig deeper into the rationale behind integrating your telephony system with HubSpot and the benefits that come with it.
HubSpot and its impact on marketing and sales
HubSpot is the world-leading CRM system for inbound marketing and sales. One of the company’s founders, Brian Halligan, was actually the one who coined the term “inbound marketing” in 2005.
HubSpot offers a great way for companies to unify marketing, sales, CMS, and customer service, with over 135,000 customers in more than 120 countries.
The main reason behind HubSpot’s success is that they changed the way marketing was done by showing how inbound marketing was a new way forward, reducing the need for cold calls.
In short, inbound marketing means attracting customers to you as they look for answers to their problems, allowing you to create long-lasting relationships with your customers. HubSpot works well for most companies, especially those in niche industries with target groups that are hard to reach by more traditional marketing approaches.
Limitations in HubSpot
Besides HubSpot’s CRM features, they offer the possibility to call through VoIP within HubSpot in their VoIP software. You can automatically make calls and log them directly on contact records within the HubSpot CRM. However, since HubSpot is not a dedicated telephony platform, these features come with limitations.
If you’re looking for a more advanced and powerful telephony solution, we recommend that instead of using your CRM’s native tools, you use a solution specifically dedicated to telephony. But don’t worry, we’re not suggesting maintaining two separate systems – you should integrate! Let a world-leading CRM platform meet a telephony system that lives up to its reputation!
4 benefits of HubSpot telephony integrations
If you’re intrigued by the idea of integrating HubSpot and your telephony solution, let’s go over four essential benefits.
1. Do everything in one platform
Reducing the number of business communication tools and picking solutions that are easy to integrate with each other comes with benefits like improved efficiency for your employees and usually an overall appreciation for not having to use as many tools.
Another significant advantage is that instead of using several tools in their respective platforms, you use a single platform. So instead of switching between HubSpot and your telephony solution, you can manage internal and external communication in the same place.
2. All customer information – available at all times
Having access to customer info during calls is helpful for agents, as they don’t have to switch between several applications during an interaction and can stay dedicated to the actual conversation. Less distraction – more satisfaction!
Your primary concern should be to bring value to your customers. By integrating, you can create a more personalised and efficient interaction.

3. Reduce manual data-entry requirements
Reducing manual work is a common time-saver in these days of automation. With a telephony integration with HubSpot, you can remove a lot of that mundane data entry needed to keep data consistent. Since information is automatically gathered from your system, you save time and agents spend less time chasing information.
4. Powerful telephony supporting your CRM
The fourth benefit of integrating HubSpot with your telephony solution is the power a great telephony system brings to HubSpot. By using a dedicated telephony provider, you get a more professional experience than using a tool on a platform with several purposes.
