Sales cadences are lead management workflows that allow you to optimize connections with prospects. Sales cadences provide you the ability to create a structured lead management process and ensure that sales representatives engage in the right channel at the right time.
Sales operations users can set up sales cadences using a flow editor. The Sales perations publish the cadence flows that guide sales representatives through customer touchpoints. Sales representatives can select and apply one of the available sales cadences created by the Sales operations and apply to a particular lead.
