Sometimes communication in a team can be difficult, particularly if you’re from different departments or members are often in the field or away from their desks. Chatter solves this issue and allows you all to stay connected whatever the circumstances. Chatter is not just your generic messaging platform however, there are many other features you and your team may find useful.
Salesforce Chatter

Stay Connected

Updates arise at many different instances so it can be difficult to keep up at times. With Chatter you are able to update sales opportunities in real time when you connect records and necessary data to internal systems. You are even able to approve project funds and create support cases in the same way, ensuring you are up to date and minimise errors as they arise. Why not approve expense reports or update orders as they come in, right there on the feed from wherever you find yourself. The mobile app ensures no matter where you are, you can have the same opportunities to stay up to date as those sitting at their desks.

Get Together

Sometimes platforms give you so much but there is still more you wish it could do. If you find yourself feeling this way then you’re in luck! Chatter allows you to integrate custom and third-party apps to ensure you have everything you and your team could need in both social and mobile scenarios. Chatter automatically includes files, people and information which is updated based on interests and activity, meaning you spend less time searching for things and more time doing. Being a Salesforce platform means you are able to share files or resources safely using Files Connect, even on mobile devices.

Salesforce Chatter Collaborate

Get Involved

Sometimes getting people involved in the conversation can be a tricky task. Often people contribute because they have to and not because they want to. To try to counteract this, Chatter features a scoring system to encourage engagement, where you are awarded points dependent on how often you get involved. A rewards system is a proven form of motivation and one that can prove very useful within a professional environment.
