Salesforce.com has said that it is running a private beta for the Salesforce Files, the new name for the service of Chatterbox file-synching that it unveiled last September at Dreamforce. The Salesforce Files makes it easy for the corporate files which are stored on the third party systems to be effortlessly available to the marketing and sales team so that they can make decisions quickly and seal the deals faster. This is according to Salesforce Chatter executive vice president and General Manager, Nasi Jazayeri, during a press conference that was held at the headquarters of Saleforce.com, in San Francisco.
Saleforce.com is currently making use of APIs from the third party dealers and it is also utilizing CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Service), which is an open standard used for the connection to the properties of the content. During the same conference held at the company’s headquarters, Saleforce Chatter’s senior manager, Anna Rosenman, said that one of the customers’ largest ache points with Chatterbox has been connecting to the corporate files that are in the data stores of the third party outside Saleforce.
Rosenman said that the customer were all the time saving and storing the files in very many places and therefore Saleforce did not want to make another storehouse to for such use. Saleforce.com has the intention of weaving Saleforce Files into their entire core products, and it is also planning to build an entire ecosystem around it at one point. This is according to Jazayeri. For the time being, Saleforce Files involves only the accessing of the corporate files and making them available to the sales and marketing teams of their clients. However, according to Jazayeri, the dealer has the intentions of adding another feature for document editing at some point in future.
Currently, the Saleforce Files includes the technology from the acquisition of EntropySoft, which is a content management dealer that is based in French, by Saleforce in the month of February. Saleforce.com is currently managing a beta version of the service and it is also planning to make the service available to the public in the February of next year.
