Today at World Tour Washington, D.C., Salesforce launched CRM Analytics, new tools that surface AI-powered, actionable insights directly in the flow of work. These technologies help sales leaders, service leaders, and employees across any industry — including financial services, manufacturing, consumer goods, and communications — put data at the center of every customer relationship and ultimately, deliver more personalized experiences.
Recent studies reveal that data-driven experiences are critical to customer relationships and business success:
- Most customers (78%) are more likely to repurchase from companies that personalize experiences (McKinsey).
- When companies use data-driven practices, they can see +15% growth (McKinsey).
“Every Customer 360 digital transformation is a data transformation,” said Susan Emerson, Senior Vice President, Global Product Go-to-Market, Salesforce. “That’s why we built CRM Analytics — a complete, scalable, data, machine learning, and analytics platform native to Salesforce. It enables Salesforce CRM customers across every industry to inject visual and predictive insights and recommendations on the next best action deeply into the flow of work.”
CRM-native innovations infuse predictive and prescriptive insights to any CRM user or industry
Salesforce’s CRM Analytics, formerly known as Tableau CRM, helps turn customer-facing teams across industries into trusted advisors by allowing them to act and collaborate on transparent, AI-powered predictions. CRM-native innovations announced today include:
- CRM Analytics App for Slack puts data at the center of every conversation by integrating directly into their flow of work. The app also makes analytics more visible, collaborative, and actionable.
