Everyday millions of people around the world use Outlook and Salesforce to help run their businesses. In Office 2013, we introduced Apps for Office to let our partners add capabilities to Office to extend it and integrate it with the services our users use every day to help them be even more productive in Office.
Today, as part of our ongoing strategic partnership with Salesforce, the new Salesforce App for Outlook was announced to give users a great new way to work with Salesforce right from within Outlook. This lets users view Salesforce contacts, leads, accounts and opportunities in the context of an email from a customer. Salesforce for Outlook works with Outlook 2013, Office 365, Outlook for Mac and the Outlook Web App (OWA).
