SALESFORCECOM INC Presence in Customer Journey Analytics Software
Salesforce is a conventional customer journey analytics provider across the globe. The company has expanded its footprint in the Americas, Europe, and APAC via its physical offices, sales offices, R&D centers, and partner ecosystems. Salesforce is said to be investing a significant amount of its revenue on R&D, and is said to have increased its R&D expenditure between 2015 and 2017. It is believed that the company has invested approximately 14.4% of its total revenue in the R&D activities in 2017. Similarly, it has expanded its R&D activities by opening a new unit to conduct a research on natural language processing, deep learning, and computer vision to strengthen its product capabilities. Further, Salesforce focuses on strengthening its expertise in specific domains by partnering with significant industry players. For instance, in September 2015, Salesforce entered into a partnership with Microsoft to integrate its Customer Success Platform with Microsoft’s Office productivity apps and services. The partnership enabled Salesforce to use Skype for Business to provide the best customer experience. In addition, as a part of the organic strategy, in March 2017, Salesforce launched the Spring ’17, Einstein AI platform, to provide better customer experiences across all verticals, including sales, marketing, service, and commerce. The company uses Einstein Journey Insights to analyze the various data points and help marketers optimize their customer journeys based on the customers’ purchase history.
