Salesforce has tied its CRM into Quip Productivity Suite. CRM giant Salesforce brought some very new features to its Quip productivity platform this week. One of these features includes a new way to import CRM (customer relationship management) data right into Quip documents and also spreadsheets. The changes will help users collaborate with each other more easily.
- Salesforce said Quip’s new features come in response to the hyper-connected nature of the modern workplace, in which employees are forced to sort through disconnected email threads, to-do lists and applications to gather information they need while the work itself happens somewhere else.
- “According to IDC, knowledge workers spend 61 percent of their workweek answering email, searching for information and communicating internally,” Salesforce said.
- “Additionally, the McKinsey Global Institute estimates companies can raise, through new technologies, the productivity of knowledge workers by up to 25 percent.”
“With Quip checklists users can manage projects inside Quip with tasks that go beyond owners and due dates.”
