Salesforce Data Without Maps is a Scary Thought

We’ve all heard the old adage time is money, and for sale reps, road warriors, service providers,  marketing teams, and so many others, this couldn’t be more true. Although we’ve all had those days when we think “if only there were more hours in the day” or “where did the day go”, time is not a renewable resource and we have to work with the time we have and make it the most productive we can.

Dead-end-roadUsing Salesforce is a good jump start to organizing your business and laying a foundation for a productive workforce. It stores all of your accounts, contacts and lead data, and lets face it, your business without Salesforce is a scary thought.
