Updated · Mar 31, 2011
Cloud solution provider, Appirio, has announced a series of CloudWorks-powered Jive apps that will integrate critical business information from Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) CRM with the collaboration capabilities of Jive Social Business Software for collaborative sales and customer service.
In a recent news release Appirio said that the first of these apps improves sales productivity by enabling collaborative selling, where sales teams can work together with employees from across the entire company to more easily close sales opportunities.
“Appirio’s collaborative sales app is currently available to Jive 5 beta customers and will be available to the broader Jive community in the Jive Apps Market once Jive 5 is generally available.
“‘Jive 5 and the Jive Apps Market are designed to bring unprecedented innovation and value to the Social Business Software user through the introduction of consumer and business applications for the enterprise,’ said Chris Morace, SVP of business development at Jive Software. ‘Our customers want to use Jive to collaborate using information from all of their business applications. That is why we’re excited that Appirio’s series of Jive Apps will bring Salesforce and Jive’s Social Business Software together for the first time.'”
