Businesses have many choices available to them when looking at tools to manage work, including task and project management. While every organization can be unique in their requirements, we believe there exist a few core tenants that separate tools for managing work and project activities, to tools that can transform they way you manage your business and deliver the insight required to truly drive business performance.
Here are five reasons we believe Salesforce is the best platform to manage your tasks and projects:
1. Improve collaboration and insight between sales, marketing, and services delivery teams.
By having all your projects on Salesforce will ensure complete visibility into upcoming project activity and project delivery in a single application, ensuring the entire organization is aligned on sales and delivery.

Sales people can review project status and details directly on an account before engaging in sales activity that may be impacted by current project delivery.
Taking it one step further, by managing your marketing projects in Salesforce, the entire sales and delivery team can gain insight and be prepared for campaigns that may impact services strategy and deliverables in the coming quarters.
2. Better manage project planning and resource utilization
