SAN FRANCISCO—August 15, 2016—Salesforce [NYSE: CRM], the Customer Success Platform and world's #1 CRM company, today announced Salesforce Inbox Calendar, the intelligent calendar designed for salespeople. Building on the popularity of Salesforce Inbox, the intelligent email app that transforms every Sales Cloud user's inbox into a modern CRM app, Salesforce is extending intelligence to the calendar. Salesforce Inbox Calendar surfaces relevant Salesforce records on every appointment, equipping reps with the context required to get the most out of every meeting.
In today's hyper-connected sales environment, reps are forced to search through an array of disconnected applications—ranging from CRM to social media and email to calendar—to gather all the information they need to progress a deal. In fact, according to a CSO Insights study, sales reps have to search as many as 15 data sources to find relevant information on a single customer or prospect. As a result, reps are spending up to 70 percent of their time on tasks other than selling.
By extending the power of Salesforce Inbox with calendar, Salesforce is giving reps everything they need in one place to close more deals faster. Salesforce Inbox Calendar intelligently maps relevant Salesforce data to every meeting invite and seamlessly integrates with Salesforce1, allowing reps to update existing records and review past communication right from their mobile calendar.
