Salesforce.com, an online software as a service (SaaS) company distributing business software, is best known for its Customer Relationship Management (CRM) products. The company, which has its services translated into 16 different languages and currently has 72,500 customers and over 2.1 million subscribers, found itself well positioned in the face of the recent global economic downturn. The company saw its profits nearly double in Q3 2009 and leveraged its gains to become a major player in the SaaS market as the sector experienced a wave of consolidation.

As companies have increasingly turned to Salesforce.com, they have found a number of successful methods for integrating with the company's Force.com platform as well as leveraging other Salesforce.com products like Chatter and Visual Process Manager.
