10 Things We are Thankful for Salesforce in 2016

November 25, 2016

Thanksgiving is the time for tasty food, joyful celebrations and being grateful for everything we have. So in the spirit of gratitude, here are the Top 10 Things We Are Thankful For.

#1 Our Clients

It might sound corny, but the biggest THANKS we can extend is to you, our clients. You trust us and you inspire us, and for that, we are truly grateful. Thank you for choosing and staying with us.

#2 The Salesforce Health and Retail Cloud

Specially tailored for the health and retail industries, these clouds allow us to help our clients make the most out of Salesforce. We no longer have to recreate the wheel and can now help our clients save time and money with a tailored solution.

#3 Salesforce Wave Analytics

Not so long ago, we integrated Wave Analytics into the ecosystem of a consulting company. Now it allows them to gather all company data from Salesforce, data warehouses, ERPs and log files into one single cloud. Having the most up-to-date information gives the client a comprehensive view of overall business performance which leads to improved customer service. This product is finally available on the European market, which is more than pleasing for this growing sector.

#4 Streaming API

With Streaming API, we can work faster than ever before. This is a win-win for both our clients and us. Streaming API works as a radar detecting events and pushing notifications to the app in real time. This feature is especially convenient if your business data is stored on external systems.

#5 Lightning and Lightning Bolt

We have been waiting for beautiful modern design for more than 16 years! And finally, we got it! Hurray! Lightning is designed to improve sales and make better business decisions. Lightning Bolt is a new framework that encompasses the expertise of the Salesforce ecosystem, the business logic of Salesforce CRM and the power of Lightning components.

#6 The AppExchange

Without this directory of new applications, our life (and the lives of our clients) would be much more difficult and challenging. The AppExchange is loaded with amazing apps that can help any organization be more productive. We can’t but express gratitude for all provided opportunities to enrich AppExchange with the go-to solutions developed for our clients.

#7 Salesforce Acquisitions

New acquisitions like Demandware, Quip, and Krux enhances the overall capabilities and technologies of Salesforce. For example, Quip provides an easy and quick emailing platform, project transparency and centralized performance. Every time Salesforce acquires a new technology, it’s good news for all users.

#8 Dreamforce and Salesforce World Tours

Continuous development is what leads Salesforce to success. Each year it gets better, bigger and more innovative. All the new features and releases prove one thing: Salesforce is still the leading CRM and probably will be for quite some time.
We are thankful that Dreamforce and Salesforce World Tours are not only opportunities to stay up to date with Salesforce, but also the chance to meet and share knowledge with clients and partners.

#9 Einstein AI

Einstein can sort your emails, help write responses, and even identify which clients may be at risk of leaving you for the competition. When it comes to customer retention, Einstein is the smartest tool you can use.

#10 The Salesforce Philanthropy Model

Salesforce teaches us to be grateful and care about the needs of our environment and community. This example inspires us to make the world a better place.
