Comments on the News

  • "Awesome customer service is the new competitive advantage," said Leyla Seka, GM and SVP, Salesforce Desk.com, salesforce.com. "With Desk.com, fast-growing companies now have the right solution to position themselves for growth—addressing their needs now and in the future."

Customer Service is the Competitive Advantage
