Introducing Salesforce1: The Customer Platform to Connect with Customers in a Whole New Way
The world is becoming completely connected. Every day millions of new products, apps and devices are connecting to the Internet.

And behind every product, every app and every device there is a customer. Customers have never been so close, yet companies still struggle to connect with them.
Welcome to the Internet of Customers—where every company can connect every app, employee, partner, product and device with their customer using the power of social, mobile and cloud. Introducing the new Salesforce1 Customer Platform, the customer platform for the Internet of Customers.
