Salesforce Sales Cloud
Question: What are Salesforce Sales Cloud’s Most Valuable Features?
“You can have non-sales and marketing personnel using Chatter without driving up licensing cost. The bulk edit page is nice for creating multiple users at once with the most basic information.”
“Chatter, Mobile Platform along with Mobile Push, Salesforce synchronization for MS Outlook, simple & smart analytic dashboard.”
Question: Where do you see Room for Improvement in Salesforce Sales Cloud?
The integration piece is missing. Salesforce has an integration capability, but the moment we say integration, it’s categorized into the following types:
– Synchronous and Asynchronous integration
– Hybrid integration: direct and middleware based
– Cloud-to-Cloud integration such as Salesforce.com to RightNow
…The increasing shift toward hybrid architectures, moreover, means that integration solutions must be able to seamlessly connect Salesforce.com with other SaaS applications and on-premises legacy systems.”
“Need to make complex CRM processes as Out of Box features, Address interface challenges between Salesforce and On-premise enterprise Software, Lot of dependency on affiliate software such as Service Max & Marketo.”
Oracle Sales Cloud
Question: What are Oracle Sales Cloud’s Most Valuable Features?
- “Analytics & Forecasting
- Offline Mobile Capability
- Customer Data Management
- Social Collaboration
- Sales Dashboards
- Outlook Integration
- Application Composer”
Question: Where do you see Room for Improvement in Oracle Sales Cloud?
“The data import process has grown a little since earlier releases. In the past, when data import would fail, it would rarely provide any indication of where the problem exists. In the recent releases (8 and above), this process has improved but not much. Over time, I believe this process will continue to mature.
Multiple BU Setup feature is missing, and Leads and Opportunities Forms should be versatile as per the various Sales Processes.”
Microsoft Dynamics CRM
Question: What are Microsoft Dynamics CRM’s Most Valuable Features?
“MS Dynamics CRM 2015 release has many exciting features.
Following are a couple of my favorite features in this update.
- Mobile Sales
There are many other exciting features in MS Dynamics CRM 2015 version, promising outstanding customer experiences.”
Question: Where do you see Room for Improvement in Microsoft Dynamics CRM?
Enhancing mobile usage of the CRM to other vertical would be good. I believe the MS Dynamics CRM app is a great experience to the sales people. With the mobile app, we can nurture with leads, opportunities, and accounts. Although I was looking to get reports, view of all the dashboards and other modules (Settings and Service).
