Yesterday, Salesforce.com officially announced that it won four customer relationship management (CRM) Market Awards from CRM magazine. This is the second year in a row that Salesforce, the enterprise cloud computing company, won these awards.
The CRM Market Awards were presented at the CRM Evolution 2010 Conference in New York. The recognized companies are chosen “through an extensive three-month process and propietary rating formula that involves industry analysts, financial and corporate information, product and functionality assessments, and scores reflecting customer satisfaction.”
Salesforce.com won awards in three CRM suite categories, including the Enterprise Suite CRM, Midmarket Suite CRM and Small-Business Suite CRM Awards. The sweep of all of the CRM Suite categories is impressive and record-breaking as it is the first time that any company has won in all three CRM categories for two consecutive years. Salesforce also won the Sales Force Automation Market Award for the fourth year in a row.
