Chatter Messenger: Real-time Communication for the Social Enterprise
Every business is looking to increase productivity and efficiencies by enabling company-wide collaboration. Traditional collaboration technologies have failed to deliver on the promise of a connected enterprise. Instead, email, file management systems, messaging platforms and more have created islands of collaboration – preventing enterprises from reaping the benefits of true collaboration.
Salesforce Chatter eliminates islands of collaboration by enabling employees to work together on sales deals, service cases, marketing campaigns, files, dashboards – any business process – on one, trusted platform. Chatter Messenger will extend the benefits of employee social networks to secure, real-time, in-context communication. Employees will now be able to instantly connect and collaborate with colleagues by leveraging:
- Instant Messaging:
- Individual and Group Chat:
- Chat Roster:
Chatter Screensharing: Share Screens Instantly in Salesforce Chatter
When words aren’t enough, Chatter Screensharing will extend real-time communications by enabling employees to share anything on their screens instantly with their colleagues directly from a chat session.
Leveraging group chat and Chatter Screensharing, employees will also be able to instantly launch meetings and presentations with key teams and groups. With Chatter Screensharing, every conversation and meeting can now take place in Salesforce Chatter, all in the context of a company’s social process.
Salesforce Chatter: The Leading Enterprise Social Network
Salesforce Chatter is at the heart of the employee social network, empowering employees and making business processes social.
