Dreamforce, world’s largest vendor technology event, invites attendees to connect with customers, partners and employees in entirely new ways with social and mobile cloud technologies
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., November 18, 2013 – DiscoverOrg, a provider of technology marketing and sales intelligence tools used by top IT vendors, today announced it has launched DiscoverOrg for Salesforce 3.0 on salesforce.com’s AppExchange. The app empowers IT vendors to understand who key IT decision makers are, what they are working on and how to get in touch with them immediately.
DiscoverOrg for Salesforce 3.0 provides a fast, native connection to Salesforce, so customers can instantly transfer any record as a lead or contact into the platform. While the connector transfers data, it simultaneously searches for and eliminates any duplicate records in both leads and contacts. It is also fully configurable for Salesforce administrators and automatically refreshes contact information that is being updated constantly by DiscoverOrg’s 80-plus researchers.
The announcement was made today at salesforce.com’s Dreamforce 2013. DiscoverOrg will be in booth N2212 in the Cloud Expo.
Built on the Salesforce Platform, the world’s leading cloud platform for social and mobile business apps, DiscoverOrg for Salesforce 3.0 is immediately available for test drive and deployment through the AppExchange at www.appexchange.com.
As Salesforce is such a widely used tool for corporate sales teams, our customers who use it demand a connection that allows a seamless flow of fresh, updated and accurate contact data from DiscoverOrg directly inside their Salesforce environment,” said Henry Schuck, co-founder and chief revenue officer for DiscoverOrg. “Over the last two years, we have invested heavily in our DiscoverOrg for Salesforce application as we recognize that Salesforce is where many of our customers are and where we need to be.Sales reps are now even more empowered by the improved functionality to identify key decision makers, book appointments, fill their pipelines and close deals faster.”
“The future of enterprise apps is social, mobile and connected,” said Leyla Seka, vice president, AppExchange and Partner Operations for salesforce.com. “Partners such as DiscoverOrg are leveraging the power of the Salesforce Platform to give companies the tools they need to create deeper connections with customers and accelerate their transformation into customer-driven companies.”
“Having such a tight connection to Salesforce through its native app is one of the key differentiators that drew us to choose DiscoverOrg in the first place,” said Mike Sorgenfrei, director, Business Development for WatchDox. “It provides us with a seamless, efficient and intuitive Salesforce integration, freeing up our sales reps to concentrate on what they do best.”
