Salesforce Releases Jigsaw 2

Salesforce today announced plans to release Jigsaw 2 next month. The solution will instantly bring business contact data from the Jigsaw Data Cloud to all Salesforce customers.

When the product is available, Jigsaw data will be seamlessly integrated into Salesforce CRM, allowing Salesforce customers to boost sales and marketing effectiveness with real-time access to 26 million business contacts and more than 4 million company profiles. Complete contact data including phone and email information is available for an additional $99 per user per month. In addition, the Jigsaw community adds 36,000 new contacts and updates an additional 12,000 existing contacts daily—improving lead quality through real-time clean data.

The Jigsaw Data Cloud will be the only cloud service that offers accurate data updated in real-time that is tightly integrated with CRM, giving a unique advantage to sales and marketing professionals using Salesforce CRM.  

With this new release, Salesforce customers can acquire Jigsaw user licenses then simply have system administrators "turn Jigsaw on," allowing them to immediately start accessing complete contact details for over 26 million accurate business contacts. Jigsaw's social community data model naturally supports salesforce.com's Cloud 2 vision for social, mobile and open technologies by allowing individuals to collaborate on business contact information, access Jigsaw data through mobile applications and build on Jigsaw through its open API. Jigsaw 2 accelerates CRM adoption by having quality lead data and accurate contacts that further enhances the value of Salesforce to sales and marketing professionals.

"Jigsaw 2 gives Salesforce customers something no other CRM solution can match: seamless and instant access to the industry's most accurate business contact data," said Brett Queener, executive vice president of Chatter and emerging products at Salesforce.com. "Jigsaw combines a massive community of users with the cloud, transforming the data industry by bridging crowd-sourced data into the social enterprise."

"Data is critical to the success of any CRM deployment, so having real-time access to Jigsaw to update records is very powerful," said Michael Rogan, business intelligence manager at Lenovo. "Our marketing thrives on Jigsaw data with sales reps penetrating accounts three times faster with access to the right contacts."

Jigsaw 2 will be available in June. Salesforce customers will be able to access complete company profiles and basic contact data at no additional charge. Complete contact data, including phone and email information, is available for an additional $99 per user per month.
