Salesforce, the Customer Success Platform and world's #1 CRM company, recently announced SalesforceIQ Inbox for Outlook, extending SalesforceIQ to the world's #1 email client, Microsoft Outlook. SalesforceIQ Inbox is an intelligent app for Gmail, and now Outlook, that transforms every Sales Cloud user's inbox into a modern CRM app by bringing SalesforceIQ's groundbreaking Relationship Intelligence technology directly to their email.

Today's sales teams are experiencing information overload. In fact, according to a CSO Insights study, sales reps have to search as many as 15 disconnected data sources to find relevant information on a single customer or prospect. As a result, 89 percent of executives believe sales reps are missing opportunities because they can no longer keep up with the information sprawl. In addition, salespeople still live in their email because customers often prefer it as the contact channel. In fact, the average sales rep spends more than 70 percent of their time answering email every week.1But email isn't designed to manage this information overload or customer relationships. It remains disconnected from business processes and the customer experience.

Salesforce has solved this problem for reps with SalesforceIQ Inbox. It transforms reps' inboxes by connecting their email, Salesforce CRM and customer social data. SalesforceIQ's Relationship Intelligence technology connects the dots and unifies customer data by leveraging data science to automatically capture, analyze and surface information that is relevant for stronger customer relationships.
