Grace a sales force j'ai optimiser tous mon processus commercial. En effet i me permet a chaque appel de prospection de noter toutes les information importante de la découverte et prévoir une prochaine tache avec une date. Ainsi je n'oublie de rappeler aucun prospect et maximise mon taux de conversion.
CRM très simple d'utilisation j'ai été former par mes collègues en quelques heur et je suis maintenant autonome sur sales force. Aujord'hui je m'en sert quotidiennement il me permet de suivre chaque lead et ne jamais oublier une tache. Mais également de manager les campagne marketing. logiciel très complet qui me permet d'optimiser mes ventes
Je ne lui trouve pas de défaut particulier en effet j'ai des besoins extrêmement simple et donc il est parfait pour moi au quotidien. Le seul petit défaut que je pourrais lui trouver et que certaine fonctions sont difficile a trouver au début mais on s'y habitue très vite

My overall experience using Salesforce has been good. I've used the application for 19 months and I'd say it took at least 3 months to get familiar with the tool. I work for an organisation of +180k and the tool is used widely across the business, which is a testament to its reliability and scalability. For smaller organisations, there is likely to be less complexity involved, as there will be less integration required with other applications - which Salesforce does incredibly well. To summarise, I'd say to prospective adopters of Salesforce, expect to invest some time in training new users of the tool but its remarkable functionality and capabilities far outweigh this ramp-up period.
-Highly customisable with deep and wide integration with my organisations SaaS or natively developed applications.
-Allows you to produce very detailed reports to track my own activity and history. Which can also be used by management to track team progress and activity.
-A customisable dashboard that allows frequently uses tabs to be populated to a "bookmarks bar" which allows for faster navigation.
-Great search feature that allows for search across the entire CRM database.
-Due to its high functionality and range of options it can be overbearing to use at times.
-Requires internet connection which means there is occasional latency and is not accessible at all times.
-Visually, it's not the most appealing tool that I've ever used.
-Steep learning curve for those that have not used it before, but then that goes for most CRM tools.

Massive community support network
High volume of add-ins and extensions
Intuitive natural user interface (lightning)
Some administration/development is quite complicated for newer admins

Mobile app has been inconsistently working for both iPhone and Android for the last year or so.
Some browser based issues & Mac v. PC Java based issues.

I have been using, recommending and adopting salesforce.com for my sales teams for ten years in several different digital technology, media and advertising organizations. I can say unequivocally that the CRM software has evolved from being a supplement and "nice to have" to a must buy and necessary and vital tool for doing business. The key to any business solutions and software product is getting the team to adopt and use it. Training and practice is essential. Its like your golf game, the more you practice the better your score or working out, no pain, no gain.
I like the social media and conversational abilities you can have with sales team; the app is excellent for quick reviews and checking on status of pending, pitches and prospects; the flexibility and customization options based o salesperson, account, deal size, industry vertical. In one organization we adopted it for internal sales data use and tracking and also incorporated product data about our partners, customers, audience metrics and analytics and distribution platform.
Depending on the level of subscription, will also vary with the amount of personalized training you receive. I would also say there needs to be more attention and customization devoted to industry verticals that contain many nuances regarding customer segments and rev streams. This includes the advertising and digital sales industries where there are multiple customer touchpoints and rev streams including agencies, direct to client, programmatic, 3rd party vendors, ad tech partners etc. I also think saleforce.com needs to develop more compatible software and training that integrates salesforce,com into other software linked to finance, accounting etc.
I would recommend that you try several types of CRM software that fit with your company's culture, size, client base and industry. Get involvement from your team - account managers, account execs, sales managers, VP Sales, marketing support- who will all have varying opinions on needs and functionalities to improve business flow, communications, customer x and employee x.
