Overall Satisfaction with Salesforce Service Cloud

Salesforce is essentially the backbone of our organization -- all projects, assignments, and cases are how we keep things documented and centralized for everyone to access. This keeps our agency all on the same page in terms of progress, reporting, email marketing, and every other marketing effort we run through SF.
  • Easy-to-use, Intuitive UX/UI - I can't speak to the overall setup, but it only takes a few minutes to understand Salesforce as a user.
  • Social Media-like features - by @ing someone, I can easily loop multiple people in on projects in more of a laid-back tone/atmosphere.
  • Notifications sent via email - I never miss a comment or assignment because of this.
  • Difficulty setting up - While I can't speak to this specifically, it seems to be difficult to add to everything this platform has to offer.
  • By keeping everyone on track, the ROI in terms of time saved is second to none.
While I wasn't responsible for the choice, Salesforce seems to offer a lot more flexibility, have more integrations, etc. compared to the last product I used that was similar to this platform (Basecamp).
While this platform may require someone who has prior knowledge with it to set everything up correctly, this is essential for any company that needs everyone on the same page. This is a great platform to have.
