What Does Salesforce Do?

Jan. 19, 2023 · 6 minutes

Many businesses come to us frustrated because they are unable to easily answer questions such as "what do you do with your customer data?" and "how can you use that data to grow your business and your relationships?". Marketing does not share data with sales. Marketing is unaware of which customers have open service tickets. Regarding marketing campaigns, business lacks transparency.

Customers' expectations are at an all-time high, and the economy is difficult, so you must be as efficient and effective as possible. Customer relationship management (CRM) software from Salesforce eliminates technological silos between departments.

Customer 360 describes Salesforce's entire portfolio of products and services. It's how you can unite all of your teams — marketing, sales, commerce, service, and IT — with a single shared view of every customer, so that your employees have all the pertinent data they need to create exceptional customer experiences and cultivate relationships.

Real-time customer data from tech support chats, recent purchases, website behavior, and other sources flows throughout your organization. Your sales team is well-versed in the products it offers. Your service team assists customers more quickly. Or even better, customers are empowered to resolve their own issues using automated self-service tools. The ability to automate and consolidate millions of data points in real time generates a unique customer experience. Customers' needs are met and their confidence in you grows.

Customer 360 reduces expenses by enabling your entire organization to utilize a single, dependable platform; it boosts productivity with built-in automation and intelligence; and it promotes efficient growth by empowering your employees to exceed customer expectations.

Looking for the best part? Customer 360 is applicable to every industry, business size, and growth stage. And it's flexible, so you can tailor the apps and tools you need to meet your business's current needs and scale as your business grows or its needs change.

How does Salesforce work?

A further feature of our CRM platform is that it resides in the cloud. This means that regardless of their physical location, all of your teams are connected on a single platform. Our platform is built on Hyperforce, our next-generation infrastructure, which enables Salesforce applications to scale quickly and allows you to choose where in the world your Salesforce applications run.

On top of Hyperforce is our most recent innovation, the Genie Customer Data Cloud, which enables you to maximize all of your data.

Every business must be a customer business.

This implies that it is essential to consider not only what you offer customers, but also when, where, why, and how you reach them.
