Sales professionals are in a constant state of searching for prospects, storing contact information, creating action items, communicating across sales teams and closing deals – all within Salesforce.
The Salesforce AppExchange has more than 1,000 sales apps pre-integrated with Salesforce, designed to help you connect better, build stronger teams and close faster. In our new eBook, 18 Must-Have AppExchange Apps for Sales Teams, we looked far and wide to winnow that long list down to the 18 best apps, available from the Salesforce AppExchange, designed to help sales teams improve connections, collaborate quickly, store contact information, create healthy competition, deliver quotes faster and close more deals.
Run Consultants selected the applications in the eBook from the Salesforce AppExchange by comparing applications that were listed in order by number of five-star ratings, or as “Best Rated,” in the AppExchange Sales subcategory. Applications must have had at least 50 five-star ratings at the time of research (September 2014) to qualify.
Apps are listed in the following categories:
- Compensation Management
- Contract Management
- Document Generation
- Email and Calendar Sync
- Quotes and Orders
- Sales Intelligence
- Sales Methodologies
Along with each app, screen grabs from demos and the most helpful review are included. The “Most helpful review” was the most-liked review on the Salesforce AppExchange listing for each application. Reviews were edited only for clarity and length, though full reviews can be seen on the Reviews tab for each application on the Salesforce AppExchange.
No applications listed in the AppExchange subcategories Dashboards & Reports, eCommerce, Forecasting and Territory Management and Partner Management had enough reviews to be included in this report.
