How to integrate SAS Flex with MailChimp
MailChimp is an email marketing software that offers options for designing, sending and saving templates of your emails, as well as creating newsletters for sharing on social networks. With MailChimp, you can create a list of contacts and easily communicate with your customers using email templates. If your business uses this software, integrating your account with the MailChimp app in the portal will automatically push data from your calls into your contacts list. This eliminates the need for you to do double the work, converting messages into new MailChimp entries.
