The Salesforce AppExchange

We’ve selected 5 applications that address specific pain points within the financial services industry to help you kickstart your journey in simplifying efforts and maximizing output.
1. Provide your team with more accurate data
Cloudingo: Think about the current state of your data right now; what is the biggest issue you’re running into? For many Salesforce users, it’s duplicates. Cloudingo is recognized for its superior ability to comb through data and find duplicate records. This application helps to eliminate data cobwebs by not only bulk merging duplicate entries but also by validating mailing addresses, cleaning lists before records reach SFDC, match import records with existing Salesforce records, and much, much more.
