We get this question a lot. So here we go:
Worksource VS. Salesforce.com
Salesforce is a multifunctional and highly customizable CRM platform designed to support complex business processes and drive the productivity of sales, customer service, and marketing teams. It’s a tool to manage contacts, leads and the sales pipeline. However, it’s not a ‘plug and play’ system. Implementation can take well over a year and cost tens of thousands of dollars on top of the user licensing fees. It also requires hiring an Implementation Partner to help customize, launch and support the system. It’s a great tool, but it’s very different from what Worksource is designed to do.
Worksource is a simple repository, similar to Box or Dropbox, but so much easier to manage and navigate because Worksource was designed specifically for sales enablement and office integration. It connects Sales, Marketing and Training by housing all current and compliant materials and makes them readily available for field base employees to access and share via their cell phone, tablet or desktop. It’s a single source of truth.
Worksource and Salesforce are not mutually exclusive. SF is an amazing tool to use as a contact management and pipeline management tool and as an integration for marketing campaigns for lead nurturing. It’s really not a repository for your sales and marketing tools. And even if it pro ports to offer that, it’s not plug and play.
Worksource is plug and play. Literally within a week you will be up and running without tens of thousands of dollars being spent to set it up and get it to work. We shine as a way to manage and distribute resources and improve workflow for your sales and marketing team.
