It doesn’t seem that long ago, but this month marks the 10th anniversary of Salesforce’s AppExchange. We would like to take this time to reflect on how the AppExchange has not only revolutionized our business, but has completely changed the way consumers evaluate which tools would be most suitable to their business.
The AppExchange, if you didn’t already know, is the world’s #1 cloud computing marketplace for business applications built on the Salesforce.com platform. Salesforce end users now have the ability to search, review, evaluate, compare, download and install software applications they need to help streamline and manage their entire business processes all on one platform. Consumers also have the capability of accessing these applications from their mobile device.
The time and money a company can save by downloading an application rather than spending their own resources developing what they need is game changing. There are many different application categories on the AppExchange designed for all departments in a business such as IT, HR, Marketing, Sales, and Finance to name a few.
The AppExchange gives third party developers the freedom to build, develop, customize and market their own business applications to millions of people across the globe. With over 2,700 applications, the main advantage of being built on Salesforce is the integration capabilities along with customizing these applications to fit your unique business processes.
“Jobscience recognizes the value in taking an application to the marketplace while giving customers the ability to compare, test drive, and read reviews all in one place. The AppExchange allows us to do just that.”
