8 reasons to switch to Lightning Experience

Salesforce Lightning is a seriously intelligent customer relationship management (CRM) application with a point of view that helps you sell smarter, sell faster, and sell the way you want, from anywhere. But that’s not all.

Here are 8 additional reasons to make the move to Lightning:

1. The latest innovation
By switching on Lightning, you will have access the latest in CRM innovation. You will also get each and every Lightning improvement Salesforce make, thanks to three automatic upgrades a year.

2. New selling features
Lightning offers more than 55 new Sales Cloud pages and well over 150 new features. That’s too many to list individually here! Each one is designed to make reps more productive and drive business forward.

3. Lightning Voice
Speaking of new features, Lightning Voice for Salesforce is a game-changer for salespeople. It connects them to customers and prospects faster than ever by enabling voice calls directly within Sales Cloud. This means wherever you are using Salesforce, including on your mobile device, you can make and receive calls in context, while taking notes and logging these calls at the same time. You can even choose a number that’s local to your territory.

4. Steelbrick Quote-to-Cash
Built 100% on Lightning, Steelbrick CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote) makes Sales Cloud the first lead to cash sales platform in the industry. Now reps can easily do complicated quoting, get discount approval, generate branded proposals and contracts, and even collect signatures, without ever leaving their CRM.

5. Lightning for Outlook
Salesforce and Microsoft have formed a strategic partnership which brings the world’s #1 CRM and the world’s leading productivity suite together. Now you can access Lightning from your Outlook, without jumping between programmes. The 100% cloud-based Lightning Sync also keeps your contacts and calendar up-to-date across Salesforce and your Office 365 and Microsoft Exchange accounts.

6. Lightning is mobile first
In fact, the Salesforce1 Mobile App is built on top of the Lightning Platform. Any and every customisation that happens there is immediately accessible on any mobile device via Salesforce1.

7. Lightning Builder
You don’t need to be a hard core developer to build apps. With Lightning Builder anyone can drag and drop Lightning Components to build mobile and desktop apps, and customise pages in Lightning Experience.

8. AppExchange Apps
There are now more than 157 Lightning ready third-party apps available in our AppExchange, all pre-vetted and pre-integrated to work in Salesforce. Lightning ready apps are designed to deliver the most consistent user experience as you move your organisation to Lightning.
