Salesforce.com, the enterprise cloud computing company announced the arrival of Jigsaw for Salesforce CRM, an entirely new crowd-sourced business data service exclusive to Salesforce CRM customers. Built leveraging native salesforce.com technologies, Jigsaw provides a seamless integration, a new user interface, robust analytics and delivers real-time updates to contact and company information within Salesforce CRM through Salesforce Chatter.
As a result, sales reps and marketers instantly know when business contact data degrades or becomes bad – anytime, anywhere. Updates can even be received on mobile devices like the Apple iPad and iPhone via the web browser.
Until Jigsaw, the market did not have a business data service that supported the pace of change across sales and marketing operations or delivered updates as data changed. The issue is so critical to success that companies spend more than $3 billion a year on data sourcing services. Since Jigsaw is delivered entirely in the cloud, customers are liberated from legacy data sources that require expensive and complex data management, including storage, backups, security, updates, and integration.
Jigsaw is the world’s largest crowd-sourced database with more than 22 million business contacts and 4 million company profiles that are continually updated and added to by a global, Wikipedia-style community of more than 1.4 million individuals. Since the data is crowd sourced, users realize greater accuracy, which is available to end users in real-time and pre-integrated to other cloud apps.
Jigsaw for Salesforce CRM is now generally available and starts at $29 per user per month.
