With such a large ecosystem, many of its partner companies also take this opportunity to advance their products with solutions for Salesforce.

To help you keep on top of the announcements, CBR has compiled a list.

Remote users on mobile devices will be able to access both 8×8 UC and Salesforce customer data from anywhere.

4. Attend

Salesforce integration is a new feature of the company’s platform; it will enable users to pull Salesforce data to see a snapshot view of event attendee profiles.

Users’ will be able to start Zoom meetings, email meeting information and automatically log the session as an activity.
