“I Hate Salesforce” Series Pt. 3

Aug 04 · 5 min read

How can we change your mindset, and why should you give Salesforce another try?

There are several reasons why people end up choosing to stay with Salesforce rather than giving another CRM a try. One of these reasons is because Salesforce is the top CRM on the market. Salesforce has a high retention rate, high sales numbers, and has the best customer satisfaction from users who are properly implementing their CRMs. “If you want a CRM company that isn’t going to fold in 3 years, that’s going to offer good support and have tons of partners that can help you, Salesforce is unmatched.”

The reality is, this platform has the most comprehensive, deepest capabilities to enable your sales, service, and business operations to handle a large volume and velocity of information seamlessly at scale. Look at Salesforce’s competitors, like Microsoft, Oracle, Zoho, and others – you’ll find quickly a massive set of gaps in these applications and platforms that drive up your development and maintenance costs, just to get to parity with Salesforce. These kinds of investments are not necessary on a platform that already has it all.

In fact, many of us developers flipped from these competitor platforms to Salesforce, precisely because we can do so much more on Salesforce than we can on any other platform. For you, this translates to immediate, realizable business value and ROI. Salesforce is just simply light years ahead of the rest.

Further, it is not likely you’ll ever need to use all of Salesforce’s capabilities, but they are there should you have a need. You may not know that Salesforce usually and often does have fantastic solutions for a given business use case or problem. In fact, many solutions – it’s often a choice of what makes the most sense for a given scenario.

Oftentimes, people just don’t know what’s available and how to use it. Working with a partner will get you to this quicker, much cheaper than fumbling around on your own. You may find at times it’s hard to work with Salesforce. Maybe the sales process is unclear – what are you buying exactly? Maybe support is not solving your problem easily – what is the problem? How do you solve it exactly?

Our solution? Talk to a Salesforce partner. Sales and service from Salesforce are scoped around specific objectives, whereas we, as a Salesforce partner, are here to help you much more comprehensively. It’s our business.
