Jordan Novet at VentureBeat, a Silicon based publisher that covers disruptive technologies, recently covered FirstRain in an article about how AppExchange partners like FirstRain are continuously providing value to salesforce.com customers, as they augment and innovative on the salesforce.com platform.
Writing about the need for analytics for sales users and some of the newer features that salesforce.com have implemented like Data.com’s Social Key, Novet writes:
“Those all sound like valuable features. But they haven’t stopped a company called FirstRain from drawing on a wide swath of online sources to provide the latest insights on a Salesforce user’s customers. Earlier this year FirstRain made it easier for Salesforce users to build applications that take advantage of the analytics technology, and in October there was word of “an expanded partnership” between the companies that more deeply embeds FirstRain information into Salesforce.
Take that as additional proof that Salesforce knows it’s wise to pull in data from the outside world and clean it up for clear presentation to sales and marketing people.”
Our customers validate this everyday and our continued success as a Salesforce Partner demonstrates that indeed Salesforce knows the value partners like FirstRain can bring to their customers.
Note: FirstRain has been a salesforce.com AppExchange partner since 2010 and FirstRain Customer Insights is available through the AppExchange.
