Why Should You Switch to Salesforce Lightning?

posted on June 26th, 2017by Andrew Lawlor

Lightning is Salesforce’s updated user interface—sleeker, more customizable, and improved by years of customer research.

But, you might be thinking, is it that much better than classic Salesforce? Is it really worth upgrading? We can answer a resounding “yes!” to both questions.

From our new page about Salesforce Lightning, here are 2 major reasons why your company or organization should make the transition to Lightning:

Save time and make your employees more productive.
Lightning simplifies common tasks, like creating contacts, and offers new features, such as activity feeds.

For over a decade, Salesforce’s classic interface remained largely unchanged. Salesforce usability experts designed Lightning for a faster, easier user experience.

Stay compatible with new Salesforce features.
Going forward, Salesforce releases will include Lightning-only capabilities. By switching to Lightning, you can seize on the latest research-based innovations from Salesforce.

As certified Salesforce consultant Jenn Dwyer noted in a previous blog post, the advantages of Lightning are more than hype. “Lightning represents the evolution of Salesforce and showcases the platform’s ability to grow and increase efficiency,” Jenn explains.
