Our community knows that AppExchange is all about doing more with Salesforce. Whether you’re looking for a solution with no code, low code, or lots of code, AppExchange is the most trusted enterprise cloud marketplace to accelerate your digital transformation journey.
And one of the most powerful Salesforce platforms for marketers is Pardot, a B2B marketing automation solution that helps companies build and nurture relationships with prospects and customers. So we’re excited to announce that a Pardot collection is now available on AppExchange, featuring a growing selection of Salesforce Pardot apps from some of our most trusted partners.
For Prasanna Vijayakumar, Pardot’s senior director of product management, the beauty of AppExchange is its flexibility and scalability.
“In conversations with our customers, they talk about the sheer number of systems they touch every day. Salesforce research shows that the average enterprise has 900 different applications. And the martech space isn’t getting any smaller. Building native integrations for every solution just isn’t possible,” Prasanna explained. “So we want to make sure that we have the right set of hooks for our customers and partners to come in and design what they need to improve their workflows, get access to better data, and help them achieve their goals.”
This new Pardot collection on AppExchange brings apps together in a central location and improves their discoverability. “We’re excited to see how the improved visibility extends their impact,” Prasanna said.
The Pardot collection launches with essential solutions for everything from data privacy to account-based marketing (ABM). Take a look at the starting lineup and learn more about the value they bring.

Looking to the future
AppExchange presents great opportunities for Pardot customers to get creative about issues they want to solve. And when it comes to what’s possible, the sky’s the limit.
“If you’re a Pardot customer, look to your existing partners in the ecosystem and have a conversation about what it would take to integrate them more directly into Pardot and Salesforce,” Prasanna said. “If you’re a technology partner, take this opportunity to plug yourself into the ecosystem. If you’re a development organization, talk to customers to explore new custom solutions, especially those with fewer technical resources on staff. Opportunity is everywhere.”
The Pardot collection will grow over time with new apps and integrations. The first expansion is slated to coincide with Dreamforce 2021 — be sure to check back once Dreamforce is in full swing.
