Salesforce CRM recently announced that it entered into an agreement with the audio company, Bose, to provide a complete product and software suite solution — Salesforce Customer 360. This will enable Bose to deliver personalized and tailored experiences to its customer base.
Salesforce's Customer 360 is an integrated customer relationship management ("CRM") product that provides market-leading solutions for sales, marketing, commerce, service, and IT departments with shared, easy-to-understand data under a single platform. It offers a single view of customers to the teams so that they can create connected, personalized customer experiences, thus building stronger relationships.
Per the latest contract, the Massachusetts-based audio product company will implement Salesforce's Marketing Cloud, Service Cloud, Commerce Cloud solutions along with MuleSoft and Einstein technology solutions. This, in turn, will not only deepen Bose's customers’ loyalty and satisfaction with its wide range of products but also accelerate its digital transformation process.

Last year’s acquisition of Slack is likely to be a huge win as it would enhance the company’s enterprise team collaboration software capabilities. With the integration of Slack’s software into its cloud-based office suites, the company intends to improve collaboration between sales and customer support teams. During fourth-quarter fiscal 2022 results, Salesforce’s Slack business boosted revenues with a contribution of $308 million.
In the past few years, the company invested in several start-ups, acquired businesses and entered into partnership agreements to bolster its product portfolio and enhance its global footprint.
Recently, in March, Salesforce entered into a global partnership with Sprout Social to make it easy for its customers to manage their full social media presence — engagement, publishing & scheduling, analytics, listening, and advocacy and platform integrations — through Sprout’s industry-leading social suite.
Prior to that, in February, Salesforce’s MuleSoft partnered with Holiday Inn Club Vacations Incorporated to create a single vacation booking system that delivers unified digital experiences for the national vacation ownership company's members.

2022 has undoubtedly been a rough one for investors. Even accounting for the recent gains, all the major indexes are still down for the year and the backdrop of economic uncertainty still hovers menacingly.

On Wednesday, Vox published a bombshell interview with former crypto exchange FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, where the 30-year-old crypto trader all but revealed he had, in fact, co-mingled customer funds with those of his hedge fund, Alameda Research. This would be a problem on its own, as it violated FTX’s terms-of-service as well as likely falls afoul of wires or securities laws.

The Federal Reserve will downshift in December to deliver a 50-basis-point interest rate hike, but economists polled by Reuters say a longer period of U.S. central bank tightening and a higher policy rate peak are the greatest risks to the current outlook. U.S. consumer price inflation unexpectedly fell below 8% last month, bolstering already well-established market expectations the Fed would go for smaller rate hikes going forward after four consecutive 75-basis-point increases. But the latest Reuters poll shows forecasts for inflation in the coming year and into next are slightly higher than thought one month ago, suggesting it is not time yet to consider an imminent pause in the Fed's tightening campaign.
