Nuance Communications today announced the new Dragon for Salesforce app for iPhone and iPad that lets Salesforce users speak updates into their Salesforce CRM and Salesforce Chatter accounts. Available for free on the Apple App Store in the United States, Dragon for Salesforce harnesses the power of the Dragon Dictation app.
Dragon for Salesforce is a combination of Salesforce apps and Nuance’s cloud-based voice recognition with Salesforce, using the Salesforce API. Now mobile users can leverage the power of Dragon to dictate text and send it directly to their call log, with call log fields auto-populated on login to their Salesforce account for contacts and leads or post to Chatter. People can also speak to dictate text messages, email, or any other text to iPhone clipboard.
"Our mobile apps give today's mobile workforce an easier way to remain productive and connected. Providing our customers with the added power of Dragon to allow them to speak updates while on the road is incredibly compelling, and just makes sense. It's exciting to see the rapid innovation coming from our partners building on our trusted mobile platform," said Clarence So, senior vice president of strategy at salesforce.com.
"The integration of Salesforce with Dragon is incredibly exciting for the mobile workforce, with the ability to speak updates directly into Salesforce and Chatter," said Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager of Nuance Mobile. "Consumers around the world have embraced Dragon Dictation, and we're thrilled that its success is driving intense interest in the enterprise market for customized, voice-enable apps."
