Overall Satisfaction with Salesforce.com

Salesforce was used as an information platform to import and export information and data from multiple POS systems and import them into a financial software program. Salesforce was also used as POS for clients and to keep track of our inventory.
  • Great system for reporting.
  • The ability to track entries and audit information is great.
  • The automated email of the daily company dashboard was very helpful.
  • Salesforce has a lot of extras available, but I recommend having someone very familiar with Salesforce implement and audit that it's working properly
  • Software updates can be a bit troublesome
  • We had several issues with inventory accuracy
  • There were a few glitches with the POS, causing lost or duplicate orders
Salesforce was much more affordable than Oracle.
I highly recommend Salesforce as a CRM or platform, but it's not the best for inventory tracking.
