CRM Integration with Personyze
Informing Personyze with your CRM data allows our system to know your site’s visitors better, which always means better segmentation and personalization. The process in Personyze is simple and has multiple options to suit different clients’ needs. The essential thing to understand is that you can use any type of customer data as a variable, whether it’s industry, role in the company, gender, age, location, or any other CRM variable you may have for personalization, in Personyze.
Here are the primary methods for integrating CRM data into Personyze, depending on specific needs:
Sharing Data Locally
To do this, you can either set up a series of containers which you want Personyze to track, by going to:
Account Settings > Site Dynamic Data > Grab User Profile Data
Once you open your site within the simulator to set the data grab, you can select many options for what data you wish to collect:
If you simply wish to select a page element to monitor for data by hand, such as login username field ID, you select “Visually Select On Pages,” and then use your cursor to select the element you wish to monitor.
…or you can set them up one-by-one, as you need them, in campaign targeting. This is when you set Personyze to grab a particular user variable from the site directly from that campaigns targeting interface, under:
New Campaign > Targeting and Personalization > Target > User Profile Data

Using the appropriate Personyze API method, you can integrate your database so that updates to it are automatically uploaded to Personyze, as well. This way, data is constantly being pushed from your CRM to Personyze.
You can also send information back from Personyze to your database, to update it with new information derived from behavioral tracking, or other visitor data which Personyze is tracking.
This means that API integration can be a two-way data exchange, where both services inform each other, to create more accurate knowledge of your customers, across the board.
To integrate using API calls, use the path:
Account Settings > Grab Site Dynamic Data > Manage Users: view, edit, import
Here you will see a list of user profiles which you can manage, and in this case, you’ll be clicking on the option near the top of the page, which says “Use API.” The complete explanation of the API setup process can be found here. We highly recommend you consult with us if you plan to implement API integration.
Upload your user list with CRM information
This connection will also be maintained across sessions, as long as they have the Personyze cookie, and also across devices, as long as Personyze can grab their key ID when they browse from other devices. The key ties all their devices together.
To do this, select the Upload option when you go to add your user feed, in the wizard.
Synchronize Personyze with Your Live Data Feed
This is where you synchronize Personyze to a live feed which is available at some URL or location. This can be a Google Sheets which is updated by another source, or a user RSS feed. Whatever form it might take, when synchronized, Personyze can be set to check and update itself with your feed data every day, every week, or whatever time intervals you set it to adhere to.
To do this, select the URL option when you go to upload your user feed, in the wizard.
