About Salesforce Service Cloud

Service Cloud from Salesforce is a cloud-based customer service management solution that is designed to initiate customer service activities from anywhere. Built on the Salesforce1 Platform, Service Cloud works to centralize and optimize the agent efforts, allowing them to handle customers' requests and manage cases. Service Cloud was developed to offer support mobility to agents, allowing them to receive service requests and provide support from anywhere. From the Service Cloud Console, agents can manage all active cases. With the Communities tool, customers can help themselves and others with self-service capabilities. Additional Service Cloud capabilities include a Knowledge module, where both agents and customers alike can search for the answers they need. Chatter is an agent collaboration tool that allows for issue escalations, and Social Service integrates the increasingly critical social media channels directly into the customer service experience. The Service Cloud reporting module gives front line managers the ability to see critical business metrics from real-time dashboards that are also accessible on phones or tablets.

Efficient call center

Pros

We reduce costs and increase efficiency with Service Cloud with powerful automations.

Cons

A bit expensive. There are cheaper options on the market, but still worth all its value.

Timeless Timesaving

Generally very positive. It's expansive and customisable so with some planning and time you can get it to do just about anything.

Pros

To be able to create your own fields, tables, and custom code calculations is a wonderful boon. It means your wish list can actually be catered for, and better you can keep adding or taking away as your systems develop and refine over time.

Cons

It can get quite complex to integrate multiple third-party systems, but when it's done, and there is support, you have a fully integrated system that provides ALL the information you need on a client account and project at your fingertips.

Great Veterinary Management Software

This system, being cloud based, allows me the flexibility to change schedules and appointments, as well as examine patient charts while being away from the office. I love this about the Salesforce Service Cloud.

Pros

This software is very easy to set up and utilize. It is more intuitive and simpler to use than most of the other management software systems I have been exposed to in my 3 decades of professional work. It is also cloud based so it makes it easy to check my schedule or re-evaluate patient's charts even when I am away from the office.

Cons

My least favorite part is the financial management aspect of the program. While it is not horrible, it has a few issues that can be hard to figure out. However, once you figure out the little issues, they are very easy to deal with in the future.
