"A very flexible solution."
"It's an easy platform for salespeople to quickly and efficiently be able to track an opportunity."
"The solution provides a preferred method of backing up data."
"I just like the simplicity of it."
"We have a lot of strategic accounts and large accounts that are tied with all the growth and acquisitions across North America, being able to tag parent-child accounts in an easier fashion would be better. This is the biggest pain point is associating parent to child and being able to align and manage it better. Overall a better parent-child relationship between accounts would be a benefit."
"Salesforce needs to be re-platformed, or re-architected, making it lighter."
"Its documentation and price should be better."
"There's a learning curve. It was a bit hard to understand the logical way of working with it, just at the beginning."
"What could be improved in the Salesforce Platform is the price. The platform is too expensive. The implementation time for the platform is also longer than expected, so that's another area for improvement."
"Better flexibility in editing emails created from templates would be great, and being able to add hyperlinks in emails for scheduling meetings would allow us to automate more."
"In Salesforce, every customer is unique and it's not possible to bundle them together effectively if they are from the same company or move companies, et cetera."
"The reporting needs improvement and the dashboard could have more components added."
"When you're developing database-type applications, there is no way to see the actual database tables. They call them forms, and I don't like that. Zoho should also provide better user guides."
