When Salesforce bought Quip, a document-based, mobile-first collaboration tool for $750 million last September, it may have seemed like an odd purchase, but Salesforce and Quip have been hard at work enhancing the product. Today at the Dreamforce customer conference in San Francisco, the company announced significant updates to the product designed to make it more of a central way to collaborate in the enterprise.
For starters, Quip users will have the ability to store live data like a calendar, Salesforce customer record, or Kanban project management board. Being live means, if for instance someone changed the source Salesforce record, it would update automatically in the Quip document. Conversely, if the user changed the record in Quip, it would update in Salesforce.
I truly believe salesforce is #1 CRM on market.
