Salesforce has announced its steadfast support for UK companies as they attempt to recover from the pandemic.
The CRM behemoth reiterated its dedication to the UK, emphasizing the part it expects to play in fostering the expansion and success of businesses of all sizes.
At the company’s World Tour London event, Salesforce UK CEO Zahra Bahrololoumi stated, “The UK is a critical growth market for Salesforce and we have established a diversified and dynamic client and partner ecosystem.” “I have a lot of hope for UK business’s future and the continuous innovation and expansion we will witness.”
The technology provided by the company, according to Bahrololoumi, might be crucial in helping businesses of all kinds navigate the upheaval of the upcoming few years. He pledged the “full strength of Salesforce” to UK companies.
She said that during the past two years, “British businesses have experienced extraordinary headwinds, from the pandemic and war to global supply chain challenges.”
“Due to the adverse macro climate, efficiency has replaced growth as the primary objective in the boardroom. The automation and efficiencies that cloud computing can provide are a clear solution, and in the UK right now, digital transformation is at the top of the CEO agenda.
In addition to highlighting the success of Salesforce clients in the UK like Currys, Revolut, and gohenry, Bahrololoumi also sought to highlight the impact the company has on the larger UK landscape, noting that the “Salesforce economy” is expected to generate $1.6 trillion in total revenues and 9.3 million jobs worldwide by 2026 (including 271,000 in the UK&I).
The organization is also working to close the digital skills gap, which is one of the most urgent issues facing the sector as a whole.
Bahrololoumi also said Salesforce was giving a $500,000 grant to Ada, the National College for Digital Skills, and a further $400,000 grant to the Leadership Through Sport & Business foundation, noting that there are now 16 million of its “Trailblazers” in more than a hundred countries.
She said, “We have a heart for helping our communities there and a tireless drive on becoming a trusted partner for British businesses.” We will continue to be dedicated to providing our full assistance in this crucial area because technology are a key component for both.
