And you certainly can’t access the data from anywhere, anytime, nor can your manager or executives see your progress on deals in flight, at least not without calling you for a status update.

Simply put, Salesforce is one place for you to do stuff. And because it’s stored on our secure cloud, you can access your data anytime, anywhere, whether you’re on desktop or mobile.
