"A great platform to import, manage and save customer data."
"Salesforce's strongest feature is reporting especially. It's also a lot more usable than other platforms I've worked with. It has a great user experience, with the ability to filter and access information in real-time."
"It has been reported that the technology is very hard to learn, and the service is expensive."

"If you have resellers or distributors, you just need to figure out a way to set up the system in the backend. Since every company is different, it takes a little bit of time to figure that out."
"UI needs to be more intuitive and user friendly."
"There needs to be more documentation."
