Get ready to Embrace the $10 billion Sales record
Salesforce is a company that has a very good rate of growth in the recent days. The crazy trajectory of the company has left many analysts astonished. It has become a habit for the company to beat and overcome the projected sales rates. This is a routine for the past few years. Even the stock price of the company has got a very good value. It has recorded very high values in the market that cannot be reached very easily by the competitors.
Marc Benioff, who is the Salesforce CEO, had recently talked about the status of being the fastest growing company ever in the market, and this fact cannot be denied by anyone after seeing its recent performance analysis. He also promised sales of $10 billion in a much faster rate when compared to their other competitors in the market.
It is clear that that Salesforce market share is overtaking SAP and Oracle, who are considered to be the CRM software giants in the market. This is happening in a very short period of two years.
It is said that around 18 % of the shares in this market is owned by the Salesforce that is said to be double the value of the market share the company had five years back. In fact, it is said to be a milestone for the company.
With the rise of this company, the share value of the reputed CRM companies like Oracle and SAP is at a continuous decline. The customer relationship management is not a child’s play one has to be very aware of even the minute needs of the customer and satisfy it at the right time. For this purpose, the Salesforce CRM software will be very handy. This is a statement shared with me by an Salesforce trainer who handles Salesforce training classes in Chennai.
