Welcome to Salesforce

Are you new to Salesforce? Not sure exactly what it is or how to use it? Don’t understand what makes Salesforce special? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you’re in the right place. No matter what brought you, we’re glad you’re here.

At Salesforce, our goal is to help you connect with your customers in a whole new way. But what does that mean? The constantly changing world gives us amazing opportunities to understand and redefine relationships with you, our customer, and for you with your customers. We’re blazing a path forward, together.

Salesforce helps you build more meaningful relationships with your customers; to better understand their wants and needs, identify new opportunities to help, and address their problems faster. Whether you are a successful retailer connecting with shoppers around the clock or a B2B company looking to grow as fast as you can, we help make your customers love you.

Salesforce connects industries and companies of all sizes to their customers like never before. Using the latest innovations in mobile, social, and cloud technology we’re watching our customers realize new possibilities, and reach new heights.

But this module isn’t just about what we do. It’s about why we do it.

Over the course of this trail, we’ll dive deeper into our secret sauce and show you how our competitive advantage ties back to what matters most to us: our customers.
