If you have a company that is sales driven and that has plenty of requirements as far as sales information, quotations, and invoicing. Your company has to have a lot of sales movement and sales requirements for a CRM solution to work and to work well. The company has to have a certain size of sales and clients since Salesforce is a costly solution that has to make sense as far as purchasing and expenses go. Also, it works great for any company that has a traditional (funnel) sales process, since it makes it easier to use this model to drive the options down the funnel and generate real sales and real money

Read full review Pros Customer Relationship Management is made so much easier by using Salesforce. I love the ability to move between customer contacts easily and to chatter with my other teammates. It’s so beneficial to have more industry data and to store it in Salesforce. From comparing my customers, I can make better recommendations as to what practices will be most beneficial and productive for them to use. I love the integrations that I can use with Salesforce. It will document the communication I’ve had between customer contacts. It also documents tasks for me to complete regarding their implementations. I find it so easy to navigate to find good data. In Salesforce I can also see the files and contractual agreements customers signed, and I love that it’s easy to find in their profiles. It’s helpful because sometimes my coworkers do not add the files to the google drive folders we use for storing customer facility data, so this is a great backup resource.

Read full review Usability
It's super awkward if you aren't familiar with it. I have several years' experience in both my organization's salesforce as well as others and there are still things that trip me up. I think Salesforce can get to a point where it's TOO bloated with all this information, all these integrations, what-have-you, that it can be difficult to find what you need in a timely manner or it creates a hiccup in workflows that you then have to work around. On the other hand, once these issues are identified, there is the possibility to manipulate Salesforce into creating automated workarounds. So, at least it allows for that. I think it's an issue of having so many options for bolt-ons that you start to lose perspective and functionality. You tend to lose focus on usability for users.

I'm not sure - we have hired a person/team that are Salesforce Admin so when I have a question or need support I go in-house. But, I know Salesforce has incredible L+D and trainings available for free to help users develop in their skillsets.

Salesforce CMS beats the competition due to UI, user friendliness, support, and ease of use as well as deployment. The entire system and process is simple to understand, has many different places for you to store key information, and is easily implemented at your company. You're getting a trusted brand with reliable customer service. I could not think of using any other program.

Read full review Return on Investment Since we are already a Salesforce shop, ROI is amazing since the CMS is already built into the platform. It frees up costs and resources that were spent on other CMS solutions. There will be some costs involved when converting content away from things like Sharepoint, but the end rewards of platform consolidation will outweigh those costs. Since it is already integrated into your Salesforce platform, support costs will go down and therefore have a positive ROI impact in that area.

In other words, it helps in increasing my efficiency, which brings monetary benefits to me. Read full review ScreenShots TemplateToaster Screenshots
