Comments on the News

    --  "Salesforce1 is experiencing unprecedented adoption as companies unlock
        completely new ways to connect with their customers in today's social,
        mobile, cloud and connected world," said Alex Dayon, president,
        Applications and Platform, salesforce.com.
    --  "Design Within Reach is driven by the needs of our customers, and
        Salesforce1 enables us to build more meaningful relationships with
        them," said John McPhee, COO, Design Within Reach. "Design is at the
        center of everything we do, whether it's our products and catalogues or
        the technologies we use to deliver that amazing personalized customer
        experience. Salesforce1 gives us a single modern customer platform to
        run our business, enabling our designers to collaborate on ideas and our
        reps to delight customers from anywhere."
    --  "DocuSign for Salesforce1 creates new opportunities for DocuSign
        customers to extend the value of Salesforce by delivering apps and data
        in a single place where everything is connected in the context of the
        customer," said Keith Krach, chairman and CEO, DocuSign. "As the global
        standard for eSignature, DocuSign for Salesforce1 brings our powerful
        and easy-to-use eSignature solution to more customers globally so they
        can close deals faster in the cloud and in person from the convenience
        of their mobile device."
    --  "Salesforce.com's strategy is for Salesforce1 to fuel 'a golden age in
        enterprise apps' by acting as a platform upon which both enterprise
        customers and independent software vendors (ISVs) can develop and run
        new apps that are fully integrated into the Salesforce user experience.
        This heralds a new platform-as-a-service era for enterprise
        applications...Cloud service platforms will drive an even bigger
        revolution in enterprise IT as we all try to make sense of the
        opportunities created by tens of billions of connected devices,
        thousands of apps, and the customers and citizens that own and use
        them."--Dr. Steve Hodgkinson, Research Director IT, Ovum

New Salesforce1--The Customer Platform for the Internet of Customers
Every day millions of new products, apps and devices are connecting to the Internet. By 2020, there will be more than 50 billion connected things--from smartphones and wearables to jet engines and ultrasound machines. And behind every product, every app and every device there is a customer. Welcome to the Internet of Customers--a revolution where companies will connect every employee, partner, product, app and device to their customer using the power of social, mobile and cloud. Customers have never been so close, and companies must be prepared to sell, service and market to them anytime, anywhere and on any device.

Salesforce1 is the next generation social, mobile and cloud platform for this new connected world--the first customer platform built to transform the world's #1 sales, service and marketing apps for the Internet of Customers. Salesforce1 delivers all the speed, agility and power of Salesforce, re-engineered for the needs of today's connected business. With 10X more APIs and services, companies can also build and customize the next generation of connected apps faster than ever before using the Salesforce1 Customer Platform. By connecting and customizing everything--every app, every device, every customer data source, every experience--companies can sell, service and market to customers in a whole new way.

Demand for Social, Mobile and More Connected Experiences Triggers Rapid Salesforce1 Adoption
With the Salesforce1 Customer Platform, companies love the modern, integrated experience that allows them to unlock new ways to build meaningful relationships with their customers.

    --  The Customer Platform has been completely re-engineered to make every
        previous Salesforce investment that companies have made future-proof, so
        every existing custom app, CRM customization and partner app is now
        available to employees through a modern mobile interface.
    --  And with more than 10 million Visualforce pages and custom actions now
        mobile-enabled, admins are making Salesforce1 even more valuable by
        combining fields, objects and even other services into pages, components
        and apps that run within Salesforce1.
    --  With radically more APIs and services, developers can create, connect
        and deploy next generation mobile apps faster than ever to bridge the
        "app gap," enabling them to focus on growth and innovation instead of
        investing in legacy infrastructure and long, complex development cycles.
        Custom Salesforce1 apps deliver personalized experiences, connect to any
        device and any customer information source, and can be built in a
        fraction of the time compared to legacy platforms.

Employees love how the Salesforce1 Customer Platform puts their entire business into a single user experience, and have flocked to the new Salesforce1 Mobile App in its first month of availability. In November 2013, the Salesforce1 Customer Platform generated a 96 percent month-over-month increase in monthly active users of the Salesforce1 mobile app. The Salesforce1 Customer Platform also drove a 46 percent month-over-month increase in monthly active users of the Salesforce Mobile SDK in November, as companies immediately began leveraging custom apps built on the world's #1 cloud platform.

Partners Harness the Salesforce1 Customer Platform to Transform Disruptive Ideas into Successful Apps
Salesforce1 has also ignited a new generation of enterprise apps from the salesforce.com partner ecosystem. Salesforce1 apps on the Salesforce1 AppExchange have already doubled since the launch of the customer platform, and more than 250 partners have now committed to delivering entirely new Salesforce1 apps, including major partners such as DocuSign, Dropbox, Evernote, Infor and LinkedIn. Leveraging the power of the Salesforce1 Customer Platform, partners can build custom apps, from accounting to contract management to ERP, faster than ever before and bring the most important data into the central feed of Salesforce. And customers benefit from access to the largest ecosystem of social, mobile and connected cloud apps, instantly available on any device, to run their entire business on Salesforce1.

Leading Companies Run Their Business on Salesforce1
Leading companies, such as Design Within Reach, Fisher & Paykel and Valspar run their business on Salesforce1. Companies now have a powerful mobile platform through which they can access and manage their entire business from anywhere, completely personalize their experience and supercharge app development. Companies can also customize Salesforce and partner apps in entirely new ways to meet the specific needs of their company.
