KPI dashboard application, Geckoboard, is today launching a new integration designed to make communicating valuable data locked inside Salesforce reports easy for businesses.
Salesforce is a powerful business tool which revolutionised the way sales teams were organised. However, sharing information inside Salesforce reports with full teams can be expensive and time consuming – involving issuing multiple costly licenses or collating daily email reports that can get lost in a busy inbox. Geckoboard’s Salesforce integration provides an alternative, making it easier for managers to share up-to-the-minute data direct from Salesforce reports with employees.
Recent research found that communicating data is not only important for businesses bottom line, but also employee performance and morale. The majority of UK employees are unsatisfied with the level of information they receive in the workplace, with over four-fifths (81%) stating they want their bosses to share more information with them. And with half (50%) of British staff agreeing that company information has a significant positive impact on their contribution to the performance of the organisation, there is a strong case for greater data transparency in UK workplaces.
Paul Joyce, CEO of Geckoboard, comments: “More often than not, important data is lost in complex programmes, or, even worse, is not shared at all. With a live Salesforce dashboard on the wall, businesses are able to give their team access to essential, up to the minute, easy-to-understand data all the time, without the need for extra costly licenses.
“Not only is a transparent culture proven to increase productivity and morale, but your team will be able to improve focus and ultimately help grow the business by being more data-driven.”
Geckoboard’s new Salesforce integration allows users to build dashboards directly from existing Salesforce reports, see your data in real-time, understand your data at a glance and track progress against goals as well as much more.
The new Geckoboard Salesforce integration is now live. Users relying on the previous integration will still be able to access and edit existing Salesforce widgets for the foreseeable future.
