Salesforce Strengths

In 2017, Salesforce put a great deal of emphasis on its Einstein Platform Services for creation of AI-powered CRM applications that make extensive use of customer data already stored in Salesforce systems.

Einstein combines advanced analytics, machine-learning recommendation engines, intuitive reporting and Vision and Sentiment APIs to drive better insights and actionable campaigns all within a compressed timeframe using clicks or code.

The move furthers Salesforce’s promise of delivering customer-centric applications that are easy to deploy and scale, capable of reaching millions of users.

As it approaches the next milestone of becoming a $10-billion Cloud vendor, Salesforce is counting on innovations like Einstein to help sustain its momentum in the CRM applications market for commercial clients, while extending its reach into adjacent areas like government, healthcare and asset-intensive verticals like agriculture, mining, oil and gas where account and transaction data may be more dispersed than ever.

For example, U.S.

Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency has recently announced use of Salesforce Service Cloud to develop an outreach program designed to benefit farmers and ranchers.

When it comes to all manners of customer engagement from selling to marketing and from service provisioning to channel building, it’s hard to find any product segment not being offered by Salesforce or its partners, which have been utilizing the Salesforce Platform to deliver an increased number of apps and services to their customers in target verticals.

For a company that has helped make online software delivery a reality, Salesforce is beginning to reshape the way customers are being served in different industries.
