Lynne Taylor, CPA RSI Relo, talks about the benefits of integrating apps on the Salesforce platform.
The Salesforce Platform development environment is the fastest and easiest way to develop applications on the market today. Business users can easily and quickly create their own enterprise quality applications in a fraction of the time. Not only is it faster, but you instantly inherit all of the other attributes of the Salesforce Platform including reporting tools, mobile support, security, audit trails, data backups, 24x7 accessibility and more.
Nearly every company has custom applications to accommodate industry nuances or unique operational needs. Too often, these applications are built in spreadsheets which can lead to manual data entry processes along with data integrity and security issues. Consider building those apps right alongside your FinancialForce apps on Force.com. Easily create your own apps in the cloud where you data is safe and secure, but also accessible from anywhere on any device.
When you build custom apps on Force.com, they can be seen instantly on mobile devices and can use Chatter, salesforce.com’s social collaboration application. Your app data also becomes more accessible by using the reporting and dashboarding tools built into the platform.
