Squeeze more value out of your Salesforce® data

Share information in a way that matches the way your business works

The Challenge

Salesforce® is the world's leading customer relationship management (CRM) solution and it is a great place to capture sales activity and to manage your sales funnel. Yet, when it comes to reporting and providing company-wide insight into the sales process, Salesforce® leaves a lot to be desired.
Supporting Content
Out of the box, Salesforce® offers basic, tabular reports and static dashboards. Both are old-fashioned, lack interactivity and don't cut it in the modern world. To get the most from your investment in Salesforce®, you need a more flexible, agile and interactive way to visualize your data, so you can:

See the big picture - Salesforce® reports allow you to see data that spans 2-3 entities at most. So, if you need to report across several entities, merge data from other Force.com applications or pull in data from other systems to get a complete view of your business, you will need to look elsewhere.

View information the way you want - if you need more interactivity so you can implement workflows that fit the way your business users work and think or if you want to present your information in the way that best fits your business processes, you will need to look elsewhere.

Provide additional business insight - if you want to calculate key performance indicators, weighted averages and other custom calculations, or if you want to display color-coded alerts to draw your business users' attention to areas of good or bad performance, you will need to look elsewhere.

Report across leads and contacts - Salesforce® creates a distinction between leads and contacts and if you want to produce a single report that spans the two, you will need to look elsewhere.
