As a new quarter begins it is important to ensure that you are getting the most out of yourself, your team, and your Salesforce org! 

Optimizing productivity is essential in creating the best results for your company. While Salesforce in itself is a great platform for the productive worker, combining Salesforce with applications found on the AppExchange can improve your org tenfold.

After researching and reviewing a multitude of Salesforce AppExchange applications specifically designed to increase productivity, we have found that on the merits of features, functionality, and customer reviews, these are five of the best Salesforce productivity apps that every business should have.                          

Table of Contents

  1. RingLead Field Trip - Data Management and Organization
  2. S-Docs - Document Generation and E-Signature
  3. anyGoal - Performance and Productivity Tracking
  4. Calendar Anything - Project Management and Organization
  5. Cirrus Insight - Email Integration and Management

1. RingLead Field Trip

We all know that in order to have a productive business you need to have an organized one. With the amount of data that you can input into Salesforce, it can often become confusing to read and manage. That is where Field Trip comes into play! 

Field Trip will help you analyze the fields of any object in your Salesforce org, allowing you to see what percentage of your records (or a subset) have that specific field populated. Clustered or unused fields create havoc within your Salesforce org; with the help of Field Trip you will be able to achieve that cluster-free page layout we all dream of.

Top Features 

  • Run reports on the overall health of your Salesforce data to see which fields can be removed and/or improved
  • Receive a RingLead Data Quality Score that is composed of the fill rate and weight of your object's fields
  • Analyze the fields of any and all objects within your Salesforce Org

Price: Free 

What Users Think: 

Easy, intuitive app - a very useful tool for both simple and complex data cleanup projects.”
- Alecia S., Data & Business Systems Analyst at Marketron Broadcast Solutions
