Pardot Users: Urgent CRM Update for 2017 - BrainSell Technologies - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog
Pardot Users: CRM Integrations are in Danger
Back in summer of 2016, Brainsell warned that SalesForce.com announced no new software developments for CRM integration with Pardot. This marketing automation software released an update, naming their exclusive partnership with SalesForce.com.
So, what does this mean for current Pardot Users?
Pardot, renamed Marketing Cloud, will cease to support the following CRM Systems:
- Microsoft CRM
When is this change happening?
The integration between Pardot/Marketing Cloud will no longer function with as of June 2017. This is known as the “End of Life Date”.
What happens after the “End of Life” date?
Any CRM integrated functionality will no longer work, including single sign-on. As a result, list and activity views in your CRM, including all field syncing between your CRM and Pardot/Marketing Cloud will be affected.
What can you do?
- Manually import data to your CRM, periodically
- This includes importing prospects and opportunities manually.
- This is a timely process with a high potential for human error.
- Manually import data to your CRM, regularly for automated syncing.
- Again, relying on a manual process to import mass amounts of marketing data.
- Potential errors could cause marketing disconnect.

FROM THE ARCHIVES: SUMMER 2016
On June 14th, SalesForce.com announced that it had no development plans to ensure that SugarCRM’s integration with Pardot would continue to function properly.
The SugarCRM connector is deprecated and is not available for Pardot accounts that allow multiple prospects with the same email address. Accounts that don’t allow multiple prospects with the same email address integrate only with Sugar versions 5.4.X – 7.1.X. New development will not be made to integrate with newer or future versions of Sugar.
The statement was released on Pardot’s website along with directions on how to find out if your account allows this functionality: click here.
This news will come as a shock to Pardot/SugarCRM users, who have most likely just been upgraded to the new Sugar version 7.7.
