We have been working on this integration for some time now. Although, this is only the first version of the LinkedIn Company integration with Dryfta platform, we have laid out the basics. In future versions, we would be able to fetch real time news and updates from company pages. However, since this data is coming from a third-party, most of what is possible depends on LinkedIn’s policies related to its data use.
In our first LinkedIn company integration, we have created a tool to manage Organizations listings. Admins can add companies under Organizations tab and later use it to add contacts. Organizations also list the companies and organizations as added by users during registration. Each organization would have basic information including country and HQ location along with the complete list of contacts from that organization.
When a user signs up using LinkedIn, Dryfta fetches user’s data from LinkedIn and also of the company the user works at. The user data includes First name, Last name, Photo, Role and Company name and saves the Company details under the Organizations listings.
We have added real-time company name suggestion for admins in backend and users on the website. So, when user creates or update company name, system would suggest the matching company names from the list of organizations already exist in the platform database. User then selects the company name from the list and updates the profile.
Dryfta platform makes sure no organization listing is duplicated. If somehow it is duplicated, Dryfta provides admins with the ability to merge organizations and their related contacts into single organization.
Organizations listings will also be used to add exhibitors and sponsors when adding organizations in exhibitors and sponsors listings.
