CyanGate, a McLean, Virginia-based media technology company, has announced its newest application, S-Drive.
Company officials say it will be usable by CRM vendor Salesforce.com’s (News - Alert) professional and enterprise edition customers to "store and share their files without any storage limits.”
S-Drive uses Amazon’s storage cloud for file management while providing an interface within Salesforce.com platform. Bulent Dogan, senior solution architect at CyanGate, says companies using the Salesforce.com CRM platform will be able to store and share their sales and marketing collateral, product documentation, customer documents and even any type of media files via S-Drive.
"Companies can allow their customers to upload and download case files, product updates and documentation directly from Salesforce.com’s customer portal without file size and storage limitations," he said.
Salesforce.com has released a new Adobe Flex Builder recently to go with its Internet application initiative. S-Drive is being marketed by company officials as "a showcase for these type of applications that will enhance the CRM experience for companies," and allow applications to be built on the Salesforce.com platform.
Since the launch of S-Drive's newest edition on AppExchange, customer feedback supports that this application is easy to use and is an improvement to Salesforce.com’s document management. To get started companies need to sign up for a single company account from AppExchange.
This reporter hasn't heard of CyanGate before, but wishes them well -- they have a remote office in Turkey and this reporter lived in Istanbul and thoroughly enjoyed it. Kolay gelsin, arkadashlarim.
