Leverage Real-time Customer Data to Deliver New Mobile Experiences
Salesforce Platform delivers the only enterprise cloud platform that combines industry-leading tools and frameworks with real-time customer data to deliver rich, engaging mobile experiences. Before, a medical device sales rep would travel with the latest paper-based product catalog and devices to show how products work. Today, they have an interactive tablet app that can be personalized based on each patient's condition and procedure. Previously, field technicians would arrive at a job site to diagnose a problem. Now, they can monitor equipment in real-time from anywhere, and preventatively flag any issues immediately. And companies used to resort to impersonal "spray and pray" marketing techniques. But today, they can instantly deliver product offers to customers as they are walking toward their storefronts, using geolocation and customer preference data. With Salesforce Platform Mobile Services, enterprise developers can couple the native functionality of any mobile device with customized customer data to build enterprise apps that are as productive and engaging as consumer apps.
