Why You Need Sales Enablement AND Salesforce
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably well acquainted with sales enablement. This umbrella term is used to cover tools for every stage of the selling process. And companies are using it in every sense of the meaning to sell more effectively. You’ve probably also heard time and again that Salesforce is the leading cloud-based CRM software that enables you to better connect with your customers, partners, and potential customers.
Sales Enablement vs. Salesforce
So while sales enablement provides the tools and resources you need to close more deals, Salesforce is the database that automates processes and procedures to make salespeople more productive.
The truth is, Salesforce and sales enablement go hand in hand. And the key is to leveling up your Salesforce CRM is to use the right combination of sales enablement tools.

Thankfully, there’s an app for that. Actually, lots of apps, in the Salesforce AppExchange. The right combination of tools can help you with everything that sales enablement encompasses – from recruiting to assessing performance, all while leveraging the secure, consistent, and accessible data in Salesforce.
As Salesforce users, your team should be logging into Salesforce daily to manage customer and potential customer relationships. Layer sales enablement on top of that and they can also manage and access the tools they need to please current customers, attract new customers, and drive more business.
