Many factors can limit the growth of organizations: strategy, culture, talent, offer portfolio, go-to-market channels. Make sure that the enterprise tools you are using are not one of them.
Salesforce products (i.e.: Clouds) have long been recognized as premium CRM solutions for high performance companies. Some of the main reasons behind their vast popularity is customer centricity, powerful features, flexibility, and scalability.
This cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) platform transcends being a mere sales, customer service, and marketing tool. Successful companies use Salesforce as their core enterprise software, including a wide-variety of CRM tools and extensive integration capabilities to other critical systems, such as accounting software and ERPs.
According to Salesforce, more than 150,000 businesses worldwide rely on their scalable cloud-based platform. So, how can Salesforce influence your business growth?
If you run a company that utilizes Salesforce solutions, you are constantly seeking ways to leverage this powerful tool. A thorough examination of this CRM platform reveals features that enable you to build and strengthen customer relationships, enhance interdepartmental collaboration, and deliver exceptional customer experiences.

Successful businesses focus on delivering smooth and intuitive customer experiences.
The simplest way you can make your business competitive enough to survive or maintain great margins is by optimizing your business processes to be able to deliver for your customers at scale.
But it isn’t as easy as it sounds. Customer behavior is constantly changing because of technological innovations and cultural shifts. If 360-degree customer experiences and customer service aren’t integrated into your business processes, scaling to the next level will be impossible.
Many companies gather data about their interactions with customers, but they have no underlying algorithm to utilize and process that data to reveal deep customer insights.
Salesforce, as a “super CRM”, not only allows for robust integration and analytics insights into your company’s data across all formats, but also facilitates your organization’s ability to leverage it for business growth.
For example, the sales department is one of the biggest benefactors of Salesforce.
Sales have evolved far beyond making a large volume of cold calls to prospects. Today, despite industry-specific similarities, you’ll be hard-pressed to find two companies with exactly the same sales process. Accordingly, the level of personalization and customization of sales practices is equal if not greater than what you’d expect from other business functions like customer service, marketing, product development, etc.
Smart organizations leverage Salesforce to create a well-structured sales process that considers every customer touchpoint.
Salesforce takes businesses to the next level by placing the customer at their fingertips and making it easy for an organization to direct its focus on building a mutually beneficial relationship with the customer – which is the main purpose of Salesforce.
Your business needs a system and Salesforce happens to be a popular choice for many companies who want to link functional areas like sales, customer service, marketing, and overall business management – creating the 360-degree customer view.
Here’s how Salesforce products can help you improve your business processes…
Many companies focus on using Salesforce solutions to acquire and close new leads. Great! But if you don’t find ways to connect with them and retain them, it’ll cost you a lot of money in the long run.
Aside from helping you fill up your lead pipeline, various Salesforce products make it possible to retain your customers and increase their Customer Lifetime Value.
Here’s how Salesforce supports customer retention:
Adopting the right technology is crucial to your success. Aside from helping you strengthen your customers’ relationship with your brand, here’s how Salesforce solutions make your business move forward:
Salesforce is a market leader when it comes to enterprise SaaS technology and solutions. It gives you a complete ecosystem to support every aspect of your business – from sales, marketing, and customer service – to get a unified 360 view of each customer.
There are even Salesforce solutions for specific industries like manufacturing, high-tech, SaaS, health, finance, transport, nonprofits, and more.
The biggest roadblocks companies face is the inability to unify productivity across departments that use different systems.
A Cloud-based platform like Salesforce allows departments – from sales and customer service to marketing – to work together to leverage their common data to track and improve performance based on big data analytics.
This strongly reinforces economies of scale, reduces costs, breaks silos between departments, and gives high-growth companies an edge in competing with other businesses in their field.
When companies leverage Salesforce to its highest potential, streamlining the user experience and delivering personalized customer service becomes relatively easy.
With customizable reports that enable you to track simple and advanced KPIs, you can gather information about trends with leads, customers, employees and partners, and analyze them in real-time to make smart decisions and stay ahead of the game.

It enables financial institutions and businesses to create and manage the entire lifecycle of their customers, contracts, delivery of services, and regulatory compliance, from one powerful and customizable cloud platform.
Manage customer journeys from marketing, to sales, and customer service, while tracking and reporting on the KPIs of your teams. Design and deploy new digital experiences for customers and partners to meet their changing expectations, and to foster loyalty and retention.
It also helps to craft a comprehensive profile, or 360-degree view, for every client, based on information like loans, service or policy subscriptions, and past communications and interactions with your staff and company as a whole. Because of this, agents don’t waste time asking for information over and over again – which helps to iron out wrinkles in the customer experience.

Salesforce can be a powerful tool in your arsenal for donor management and fundraising campaigns, including integrating all your donations in one platform to have a clear view of the results of all initiatives.
Many nonprofits have reached a stage where trying to gather a hodge-podge of donor and campaign data spread over different software, Excel, paper notes and other media is no longer viable.
The Nonprofit Cloud / Nonprofit Success Pack helps you collect, organize and manage your data, activities, donors, campaigns, volunteers, partners and constituencies, all from one platform. With your house in order, it then becomes much easier to report on financial and people outcomes, and deliver on your mission more effectively.
As an example, a common use of Salesforce with nonprofits is donor management. With their entire donation and activity history in one place, your teams can reward returning donors, donors who’ve been contributing for many years with special touchpoints and messaging just for them. Similarly, donors who’ve come and gone can be automatically added to campaigns emphasizing re-engagement with different types of messaging and activities.
Salesforce can be personalized for any type of nonprofit organization. Tell us what your mission is, how you work with your constituents, partners, and donors, and we’ll customize your new CRM to take your organization to the next level.
