PALO ALTO, Calif., May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BetterWorks™, a leader in enterprise goals for the quantified workplace, today announced platform integrations with the #1 customer relationship management company, Salesforce, and leader in cloud-based finance and HR software, Workday. As the workplace becomes increasingly quantified, the new BetterWorks integrations automatically capture progress towards goals in real-time and put critical data in the context of the most important individual, team and company-wide objectives.
Recently sharing plans for an Apple Watch app, BetterWorks is meeting the demands of the quantified workplace by adding openness, measurement and contextual insights to the manager-employee relationship. Now sales, marketing and customer success teams can connect critical information in the Salesforce platform with their goals in BetterWorks to make progress automatically transparent and quantifiable. Similarly, organizational data from Workday can be pulled into BetterWorks automatically, giving users access to the most relevant HR data with the additional context of goal alignment and achievement within BetterWorks.
"At the heart of the quantified work movement lie three critical success factors: the ability to quantify actions, turn data to actionable insights and create a peer support network," said Kris Duggan, CEO and Co-founder of BetterWorks. "High-growth companies need access to critical data to make smart business decisions, but until now, it hasn't been available in the context of the company's top priorities. By automatically bringing all of a company's data points—including data from Salesforce and Workday—into one place, we're helping business leaders make the most informed decisions and knocking down the silos that typically prevent managers from seeing real progress."
As the demand for goal setting and management across the quantified workplace has surged, BetterWorks nearly doubled in employee size since its launch in late 2014 and recently achieved the Safe Harbor Framework and ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certifications to meet enterprise security requirements. New customers are turning to BetterWorks to provide a cross-functional view of how teams and departments work together to achieve their top objectives.
With plans to release an open API later this year, BetterWorks is rolling out major platform integrations based on the greatest demand from its growing list of customers, including 5Stars, Bluenose Analytics, Edmunds.com, GoPro, Lookout, Paperless Post, Viacom and more.
Salesforce, Salesforce1, AppExchange and others are among the trademarks of salesforce.com, inc.
