When it comes to CRM Customer Engagement, as per Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for the CRM Customer Engagement Center, Salesforce is the in the “Leaders” section. Gartner estimates that 20% of Salesforce’s new revenue came from Service Cloud in 2016 and it expects to exceed $2 billion in 2017. Reference: Gartner.

Service always tries to bring new features, innovations to market and the goal is always to increase customer satisfaction. In order to serve the customer better, Salesforce introduces a new feature called – Service Cloud Lightning Snap-In. Service Cloud Lightning Snap-ins are a fundamentally new way to deliver a service experience for today’s connected customers.
