Good for Salesforce1 Delivers Higher Sales Productivity for Regulated Industries through Integration of Salesforce CRM and Container Platforms
Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced the Good for Salesforce1 Mobile App, a new app that brings together the world’s #1 CRM platform with the industry’s most widely deployed secure mobility platform and container solution. This unique offering enables IT departments to accelerate Salesforce1 Mobile App deployments company-wide within highly regulated industries like financial services.
Sales leaders are looking to speed sales cycles, improve customer satisfaction and drive competitive advantage through mobile access to enterprise apps. Customer data is highly proprietary and in many cases protected in regulated industries. Native device-level security and mobile device management (MDM) solutions alone are not enough to prevent data leakage via consumer apps, data sharing features and personal clouds, like Dropbox. Good invented the secure container technology that protects data stored on the device, in transit, and even in use within multi-app workflows.
“Leveraging Good for Salesforce1, we enable our sales organization to use the Salesforce1 Mobile App on mobile devices in a way they haven’t been able to before,” said Scott Herring, assistant vice president of market research and CRM at Security Benefit. “The Good for Enterprise integration within Good for Salesforce1 means we can allow our users to email directly from within Salesforce, greatly accelerating communication and collaboration. With single sign-on, we’re improving the end user experience by eliminating the need to be continually entering and re-entering passwords. Most importantly, as a highly-regulated organization, we are assured that all of our CRM data is being secured and protected by Good’s technology.”
“Good for Salesforce1 will help M&G accelerate its mobile CRM strategy and protect its existing investment in Salesforce,” said Stephen Brown, CRM manager at M&G Investments. “It will also act as a vital enabler to many future mobile-based CRM initiatives without the need for a dedicated developer.”
Over half of the FORTUNE 100 rely on Good for secure mobile apps and containers, including the market-leading Good for Enterprise® (GFE) secure email and collaboration app. With Good for Salesforce1, emails may be sent to Salesforce CRM contacts with the GFE secure email app, mitigating risk of data loss from a native email client on the mobile device. Similarly, web links may only be opened in the Good Access™ secure browser.
Customers have built over 1000 mobile apps on the Good platform. This enables Good for Salesforce1 customers to leverage their own custom apps or other Good-secured independent software vendor (ISV) apps available in the Good Marketplace, including partners like DocuSign and Box.
“Good has many customers in regulated industries,” said Matt Sturges, vice president of Good Dynamics ecosystem at Good Technology. “This partnership allows customers to leverage their existing investments in Good and Salesforce, eliminating the need for additional tools, accelerating mobile transformation.”
"Salesforce1 helps you run your business from your phone," said Clarence So, EVP mobile, Salesforce.com. “With partners like Good Technology, joint customers can transform how they sell, service and market with the Good for Salesforce1 Mobile App.”
