Develop enterprise & customer-facing apps

About Salesforce Platform

Salesforce App Cloud lets users build enterprise apps quickly that help connect employees, engage customers, track performance, and integrate everything. App Cloud is a single, unified ecosystem of tools and services including Force, Heroku Enterprise, and Lightning that adds up to the fastest, easiest way to take the lead in the app revolution. Even build Android apps and iOS apps.

Salesforce App Cloud offers an extensive feature set out of the box, which allows lines of business to develop enterprise apps without writing code. Visual tools allow administrators to build applications, create triggers and workflows, and manage the data architecture with a fully drag-and-drop interface. Best of all, applications built with Salesforce App Cloud are built once but run everywhere--on desktops, mobile phones, tablets, and even wearable devices. For custom solutions, Salesforce App Cloud allows developers to write code in any modern language, such as Node.js, PHP, Ruby, or Python (to name a few).

Flexible development platform on the cloud

The Product is very powerful. It provides flexibility to build almost any kind of applications. Business users can build useful apps without taking help from developers. Extensive set of resources are available to build expertise on the platform. Also customers/partners are always available to answer to queries.

Pros

Force.com platform (Lightning) is very powerful development platform on the browser. It can be used to build applications for any industry. The pricing is on per user per month basis.

Many tools like Validation rules, Workflows, process builder are available for business users. These tools allow business users to build apps on the platform with fairly complex logic. For additional functionality, developers are needed. Developers can build more advanced features using Apex, Visualforce and Lightning Communities.

Trailhead and developer account are free resources available to build expertise on the product.

Excellent community of customers/partners is available to support queries.

Cons

Like any complex software there is a steep learning curve. Hiring developers in the US on the platform can be expensive. The license pricing may also be expensive for small businesses.

Best CRM platform available in the market!

Pros

Salesforce presents an incredibly adaptable platform that can be personalized to address the unique requirements of businesses, regardless of their industry or scale.SF delivers an all-inclusive collection of CRM tools and functionalities that encompass a wide range of customer management aspects. These include lead management, opportunity tracking, contact management, analytics, reporting, and much more.

The platform comes with a significant learning curve, which means that users, especially those who are new to CRM systems, may need time and training to fully grasp and utilize its capabilities.

It was average, I found it difficult to get buy in from the team to use it effectively. It just wasn't customized effectively and being honest I think we were mis-sold the product.

Pros

The system is quite intelligent, it has lots of functions and apps, perhaps overly complex for a company our size. We used lightening as part of JobScience. It is a great piece of software for large companies, loads of apps that can be built in.

Cons

It is more geared towards large companies (Enterprise) 300+ users to get the full use from it. In my opinion if you are looking at this product and your company is under 200-300 people is can be very dear for what you get.
