Appirio SalesWorks Gets Social, Brings Salesforce Chatter Into Google Apps

Now With Salesforce Chatter, SalesWorks Helps Sales Professionals to Collaborate and Close More Business

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - December 7, 2010) - Dreamforce 2010 - Appirio SalesWorks now provides access to Salesforce Chatter feeds on contacts, accounts, and opportunities directly within Google Apps for the Enterprise. By presenting Chatter feeds to sales professionals within their email and calendar at the exact time they need it, SalesWorks can help a sales team build better relationships, have more informed conversations, and most importantly, close more business. 

SalesWorks enables users to view Chatter and other Salesforce information they have access to by using the trusted security and sharing models built into the Force.com platform. This granular sharing and security model allows customers to specify who has access to what information, and is what makes Chatter a great choice for enterprise collaboration.

With SalesWorks, customers can dramatically increase collaboration across the organization. In addition to providing access to Chatter feeds inside an email message and calendar appointment, Chatter feeds can also to be viewed as a sidebar in Gmail or Google Start Page, giving sales professionals even more ways to comment and participate in Chatter conversations.

SalesWorks is currently optimized for Salesforce users who are using Google Apps, but can be extended to other enterprise cloud applications. Appirio SalesWorks, announced in September, is now available with Chatter and exemplifies the rapid innovation possible with cloud technologies like Force.com and Google Apps. 

Quotes:
"Salesforce Chatter is an incredibly powerful sales tool, and now that it can be presented and used alongside Google Apps, users can access all the information they need at the moment they need it. We ourselves saw a huge jump in Chatter participation when we deployed SalesWorks internally. The number and frequency of people chattering inside our company increased dramatically leading to more and better sales activity."
-- Jim McLoughlin, SVP of Sales, Appirio

"The next generation of enterprise cloud computing is social, mobile and real-time. Technologies such as SalesWorks exemplify how these trends are taking root throughout the enterprise."
-- Kendall Collins, Chief Marketing Officer, salesforce.com
