Leading LinkedIn automation start-up LIX launches Sales Navigator support
The new feature allows users of LinkedIn’s Sales Navigator to export LinkedIn searches, profile data and email addresses for the first time.
UK LinkedIn automation start-up LIX has this week released its robotic process automation tool for LinkedIn’s Sales Navigator. Until now, Sales Navigator, used by 500 million people across the world, has not been well supported by off-the-shelf integrations or extensions, leaving LinkedIn power-users struggling to automate their activities. The LIX helper allows users to export search results, build lists, automate profile-viewing and extract complete company and personal profiles in seconds.
Commenting on the launch, LIX CEO Adil Karim, says: “We have been seeing increased demand for this integration from our customers who use Sales Navigator as a core part of their business. Our Sales Navigator customers are typically the most engaged LinkedIn users, spending thousands of hours on the platform, and so it’s great that we have been able to finally provide them with the automation support they need.”
LIX is the only in-browser LinkedIn search exporter compatible with multiple browsers, including Microsoft Edge. Since its launch in 2016, it has proved to be an invaluable tool for a wide range of LinkedIn users, including entrepreneurs, salespeople, marketers and recruiters, who want to automate their business processes. LinkedIn has reported record levels of engagement during the coronavirus pandemic, with a 26% rise in sessions as of May 2020.
Robotic process automation can save companies huge amounts of both time and money by completing repetitive tasks automatically. For an individual to extract 10,000 search results from LinkedIn to a spreadsheet for outreach, working a standard 40-hour week, it would take five years. With LIX’s automation software, it takes just a few minutes. Robotic process automation has been estimated to make savings of up to 50% in operational costs, and the global market is projected to hit $46 billion revenue within the next ten years .
