Never been a better time for Cloud Computing Core tenets of cloud computing: multi-tenant, pay-as-you-go, elastic - Cloud computing offers the right answer for today’s economy: no capital expense, modest operating expense, scales with your business
- Building apps on Force.com is 5 times faster than traditional software platforms, like Java and .NET. Here’s why; - First, it runs on the cloud, so you don’t need to buy and assemble a data center, servers or software stack. - Second, it’s one integrated platform, with everything you need, built-in. - Third, we’ve made the development model so easy, just about anyone can build apps on it, not just professional programmers.
If you’ve got sales people who spend a fair amount of time in the field on sales calls, managing accounts or visiting partners, then you may want to consider adding Salesforce Mobile licenses to your account. What’s great about Salesforce Mobile is that it empowers your field employees and salespeople to be more effective and productive in the field. All that’s required is a Salesforce account and a mobile device like a BlackBerry or an iPhone. Salesforce Mobile helps your field reps better service their accounts by giving them instant access to customer information without having to pull out and boot up a laptop. And it might be something as simple as looking up a map to the prospect’s office or calling to let to say they’re running a few minutes late. Or, maybe they need to check for any red flags with the account, such as a lost shipment or maybe a late payment. Another great benefit is accurate and timely data. With Mobile, sales people can log important details from a meeting immediately afterward. Often, this can be done in the elevator on the way down from the meeting while the information is still fresh in the salesperson’s mind. This saves the sales person from having to update their accounts at the end of the day. They can use the time between appointments to make these updates. This makes sales managers happy because they can get a fresh snapshot of accounts and pipeline opportunities. Don’t forget, with Mobile your reps can receive and follow up on leads that come through your website in real time. That means faster response times and the chance to ‘strike while the iron’s hot’. With Mobile, you’re actually giving your sales people access to Salesforce when and where they need it most – in the field.
