7 Reasons Why Salesforce should be the Core of your Business

Salesforce CRM is an American cloud-based software company that provides a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application and the ability to build or buy other applications to connect on the Salesforce platform.

Salesforce gives you the ability to easily extend your CRM with apps that business and IT can create together. Whether you build apps from the Salesforce Lightning App Builder or Purchase Apps from Salesforce’s AppExchange, Salesforce gives you the ability to create a platform that will meet your business needs.
