Salesforce 101 — Lesson #3: Lightning

You may have heard about companies who are switching from Salesforce Classic to Lightning. While it may sound like people are abandoning Salesforce, they’re actually further integrating it. Lightning is the name of Salesforce’s upgraded platform and has the same functionality as Salesforce Classic. But don’t let that trick you into thinking that nothing has changed. Lightning has added new, exclusive features and fine-tuned standard apps to give users the best experience possible. With more capabilities and data functionalities, there’s a good argument for making the switch to Lightning.

So what makes Lightning so special? Well, for one, it places focus on the user. It also takes the best parts of Salesforce Classic and fine-tunes its functions. Lightning is chalked full of new apps and features that improve efficiency and boost productivity. Before you say goodbye to Salesforce Classic, let’s take a look at what exactly Lightning is, what processes it improves, and why you should consider the switch.
