Can Salesforce Be Used for Project Management?

“Operations keeps the lights on, strategy provides a light at the end of the tunnel, but project management is the train engine that moves the organization forward.” – Quote by Joy Gumz, Owner of Project Auditors, LLC.

What is Project Management?

A project management app is a software program that allows for the management of multiple tasks and the delivery of various products within an organization. Project management software is applicable to most businesses and organizations; you will find it in the private sector, education sector, public sector, and non-profit organizations.

Since "Customer is king" is the motto for all companies, customer engagement needs project management. Project management aids in good brand communication which is the essence of ensuring happy customers. PM enables a 'feel-good' experience for the customer right from the start to the finish, from the marketing stage to the post-sales support, etc.

An ideal way to achieve all of this is to use a Salesforce instance in your business for project management. By including/integrating Salesforce with your project management tools, you are easing the life of your customer-related departments. Even if people are working from home thanks to the ongoing pandemic situation, everyone is together in the virtual world collaborating, thanks to Salesforce. You have to take customer servicing as a project in itself then only you can enhance your customer's journey with your brand, by giving the customers what they need and when they need it.
