What is Salesforce Lightning Platform?

Salesforce Platform is designed for building and deploying scalable cloud applications with managed hardware provisioning and app stacks. It provides out-of-the-box tools and services to automate business processes, integrate with external apps, and provide responsive layouts and more.

With the Salesforce Platform and Heroku users can deploy, run, and manage apps written in open languages like Ruby, Java, PHP and more. Deploy code via git and Salesforce Platform automatically builds and runs the application so developers can focus on delivering engaging apps for their own users. In addition, Heroku Enterprise provides collaboration functionality, additional control features, and enterprise grade support.

With Lightning on the Salesforce Platform, developers can also quickly deliver innovative apps with an interactive UX by using reusable building blocks including maps, calendars, buttons, and number entry forms. And, with the Salesforce Lightning Design System, every developer has a how-to guide and code for building beautiful apps.

The Salesforce AppExchange is a proven ecosystem of apps, with millions of installs and thousands of customer reviews to help Salesforce users find the best match for their business. Whether developers are looking for applications to accelerate internal implementations or looking to grow their business by selling apps or components to other customers, the AppExchange can assist with that.

  • In order to win the business, we need to have real-time communication with our clients regarding proposals and Salesforce is making it possible.
  • It's a great tool that is also integrated with different systems that our clients are using.
  • As we are able to monitor our sales revenue in real-time, we would be able to know what we need to improve to make sure that we meet our monthly quota.

  • This has been a huge time waster for our team.
  • Load times are at least 3 times as long as they used to be.
  • Our workflows can not be as efficient as they used to be so we spend more time doing manual tasks.
  • More things have to be pushed through our ops team instead of being able to do them ourselves, which creates significant roadblocks.

  • ROI - It allows us to handle billing and see if the client is being charged the correct amount so our books stay balanced.
  • Communication - It allows for all of our workers to see the notes of previous representatives so that no one is in the dark when re-engaging.
  • A negative would be that it is difficult to merge marketing initiatives, so unless someone uploads the Excel sheet of leads into the system (which is easier said than done) there could be duplications of effort.

  • Since using opportunities, we've managed to track our retention rate and increase it.
  • Tracking leads has had a big impact on ROI - we can learn where our clients come from, what avenues are working (i.e. are conferences worth all the money spent, etc.).
  • Our production team manages their entire pipeline through Salesforce. They couldn't do their job with SF.
