Oh really? How about Windows ME, Internet Explorer, ITunes, OpenDoc, Joost, Windows Vista, Ping, Screen, Google Plus.
There are plenty of software that was valued at millions that sucked donkey balls and died. People jump on bandwagons. Salesforce is the newest “you need this for your business or you will die” software. People say “oh wow look at Uber using SALESFORCE it must be good!!”
Nope. It’s just another cult. Not even a particularly good cult. At least BeOS had a solid operating system.
I don’t do bussiness sales nor is it my job to produce leads and or follow up on them…yet because of this shitty software apparently everyone is now supposed to do it. I know it’s not directly salesforce’s issue, but to me the software or whoever programmed it…sucks.
Anyone with an IQ above 70 knows that this is absolutely not true. None of it. OP is mad because the big whigs got to go to a salesforce conference and he didn’t get to go. Childish, ignorant, pathetic and just plain WRONG. But, again, there are a fair amount of knowledgable OGers that are going to click this thread and chuckle at how stupid you are.
The difference between Salesforce and other CRMs or even using an excel sheet is that
SalesForce is scaleable (that’s why they have investors)
They have created an easy to use product with a user friendley UI.
They have dedicated folks to make sure their product is online and running 99.9999% of the time
They allow users to connect with other APIs like Tableau to make wicked dashboards.
Yes, someone can do everything that SalesForce does but that what be a waste of the entrepreneurs time. They should be focused on brining in new clients, finishing jobs etc. Not creating their own CRM.
Every product out there can connect to an API! What the fuck.
That’s like saying “hey this car has a universal gas tank that connects to any gas pump!”
Are you shitting me seriously? Every buttfuck CRM can connect to Facebook, Twitter, tableau, Twilio…
What the fuck is this claim even?
What’s next? This phone can call anyone in the world?
If you don’t have an api that can connect ShittySoftware 2.0 to Tableau or Twitter some dude in Pakistan can write you one in 20 seconds for 5 dollars on Fivver. Some of those guys will work for a sandwich.
