A Good Reason to Have Your Head in the Clouds!November 2016 / Share
Have you heard the terms CRM, SaaS, or the Cloud? Ever wonder what they could mean for you and your business? Companies of all flavors and sizes are turning to cloud based technology to help them connect to customers in new ways and efficiently run their business.
We at Vectra Bank Colorado asked ourselves these questions and landed on Salesforce.com as a solution to manage client relationships and streamline processes. Salesforce has equipped our teams with a powerful tool to help us acquire, analyze and enhance our client and prospect relationships.
Great, so what is Salesforce.com?
Salesforce.com is one of the world's leaders in Customer Relationship Management (CRM). Their cloud-based software provides an enormous amount of functionality and flexibility. They provide Software as a Service (SaaS) in one single platform for Sales, Service, Marketing, Community, Analytics, Internet of Things (IoT) and Commerce.
Gone are the days of purchasing and installing software. Software as a service (SaaS) allows you to access an application like Salesforce via the Internet. No more hardware and servers to maintain, just log in and go!
Can you control things like your TV, lamps, thermostat, and coffee maker with your phone or computer? The Internet of Things (IoT) is the concept of connecting any device to the Internet. Salesforce is helping companies harness this data to connect to customers in new ways.
