CBR highlights the big announcements and topics from the show.
A tech conference wouldn’t be the same without a few big core technology announcements, and Salesforce didn’t disappoint.
The company unveiled the next generation of its Customer Success Platform.
Firstly the introduction of Quip, from its acquisition of the company with the same name. The company that makes a word process app was acquired by Salesforce at the start of August this year and it has quickly been turned around into a product.
The productivity solution is designed to help teams to collaborate without email. It combines documents, spreadsheets, task lists and team chat to create a “living document.”
Salesforce now allows users to sign-up and log into Quip with their existing Salesforce credentials. The company has also developed a Quip Lightning component to allow teams to access and create Quip documents and spreadsheets straight from Salesforce.
Salesforce Rich Mentions is another feature, this one is designed to let users display Salesforce data and account records as rich mentions in Quip documents.
