Why Revenue Grid is a better alternative to Einstein Activity Capture

With Revenue Grid, your data is stored properly in Salesforce so you know exactly where it is today, tomorrow, and forever.

Reasons to choose Revenue Grid over
Einstein Activity Capture

Own your data

Einstein Activity Capture stores sales activity data on third-party databases. Revenue Grid never stores the data it syncs and only sends it directly to your Salesforce.

Plus, with custom deployments like on-premise and private cloud, your data and your clients’ data never needs to leave your organization.

Control your data

Einstein Activity Capture captures all of your activity with no possibility to choose what is stored and what isn’t.

With Revenue Grid, data can be synced based on allowlists, denylists, and custom rules, and sensitive personal data never ends up on Salesforce.

Stay secure

Need serious data security? With Revenue Grid, you’ve got it.

Unlike Einstein Activity Capture, Revenue Grid offers full encryption for all data passed to Salesforce. Microsoft Graph Security API is also supported for companies that need full protection of specific data.

Get a long-term solution

Salesforce data-sync offerings have changed repeatedly in the past decade with little transitional support. More sunsets and replacements in the future are more than just a possibility.

Revenue Grid has been providing email and calendar data sync with Salesforce to some of the world’s largest organizations since 2006. Same software; constantly improving functionality.
