Geopointe is Getting to the Future First with Salesforce1
Dreamforce 2013 had the requisite ‘forward looking statements’ (hashtag Safe Harbour) from Salesforce.com, but for the first time, in a long time, one of those ‘forward looking statements’ was already part of the here and now. We’re talking, of course, about Salesforce1, the completely reimagined version of Salesforce.com’s mobile app. Most people in the Salesforce world have heard of Saleforce1 by now. We have had our share of customers asking if Geopointe is available on Salesforce1.
Well with our December 2013 Release, we are proud to say that at least part of Geopointe is available on Salesforce1. Salesforce.com is obviously making this top priority as their mobile strategy, and as an ISV, we are officially making it our mobile strategy as well. Several of our team members had the opportunity to talk with Product managers as well as attend special Salesforce1 events, that enabled us to see and understand just how much time and effort has been invested in this product, and how committed to this direction the company is, from the top down.
With the December release of Geopointe, we have introduced the ability to check in to Salesforce records via Salesforce1. This is accomplished very simply with a custom Publisher Action that can be deployed to users as easy as modifying a page layout. As we go forward adopting Salesforce1 as our mobile platform, we wanted to take something simple that is at the heart of geolocation and mobile to get started, and to prove out the platform from a dev standpoint. So we chose check-ins.
We are very pleased with how our first release on Salesforce1 has turned out, and looking forward to bringing even more Geopointe functionality to Salesforce1 with each subsequent release. Check out our Salesforce1 page on our support site to see how easy it is to set up Geopointe Check-Ins for Salesforce1.
This definitely feels like the right decision, and we are excited to get to the future along with Salesforce.com.
