In this post today, we’d be taking a look at Salesforce, one of the fastest growing companies in the United States. This is another cloud-based software company that has been making waves for sometime now.
Some of the major competitors in the cloud market include big players such as:
- Amazon Web Services (AWS)
- Microsoft Azure
- Google Cloud Platform
- Alibaba Cloud
Nevertheless, it is still growing stronger by the day. On the 1st of November, 2020, it was reported that the company had bought Slack, a workplace chat app for about $27.7 billion in a mega deal.
When it comes to CRM, which means Customer Relationship Management, the company’s software can go head to head with that of HubSpot’s. You just need to find the right software that will help you manage past, incoming and potential clients for your business or the organization you work for (if that’s your position).
The company was founded in California, USA in the month of February, 1999. It was founded by both Marc Benioff and Parker Harris although Benioff is the current CEO of the company.
What the US tech company primarily does is, providing Customer Relationship Management (CRM) service. Also, it sells a complementary suite of enterprise applications focused on:
- Customer Service
- Marketing Automation
- Application Development.
The company’s products are divided into several categories which include:
- Commerce Cloud
- Sales Cloud, Service Cloud
- Data Cloud (including Jigsaw)
- Marketing Cloud
- Community Cloud (including Chatter)
- Analytics Cloud
- App Cloud
There are three big companies that intend to buy the company and her over 90,000 customer base. They are Oracle, SAP and Adobe.
