Software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider Salesforce.com looks poised for greater heights.
Recent financial results from Salesforce.com exceeded Wall Street expectations, posting a 43 percent jump in third-quarter revenue to reach US$276 million, for the period ending Oct. 31. Meanwhile, its net income rose to US$10.1 million from US$6.5 million in the previous year.
The online customer relationship management (CRM) software developer said it continued to grow its customer base amid the economic downturn.
In November, Salesforce.com extended its cloud-computing service with a new option that allows its clients to build external Web site more easily.
Founded in 1999, Salesforce.com is headquartered in San Francisco, California, with regional headquarters in Dublin (covering Europe, Middle East, and Africa), Singapore (covering the Asia-Pacific region) and Tokyo, for the Japanese market.
