What is an account in Salesforce?
In Salesforce, an account is a company that you are, or were, doing business with. Salesforce account types allow you to store data, not only about your customers and partners, but also about competitors, investors, resellers, and all other parties you may interact with in your work process.
Salesforce account object allows you to store the following data points:
- Company name
- Size (the number of employees)
- Company billing and shipping address
- Phone number
- Account Owner
Each Salesforce account record is also supported by information from other tabs (contacts, opportunities, cases, activities, etc.) so you can not only take a quick view from the top, but easily drill down into the details. Collectively, all these data sets give you a complete view of your customer, or any other account type you’ve created, in Salesforce.
If you deal with large companies, you’ll likely need to organize data about their numerous divisions, business units, and subsidiaries in a hierarchical way. Using a parent account in Salesforce, you can identify the company with the most influence or control and link it together with its multiple “child” offices.
This way, you can better understand your overall relationship with the whole business group, gain a wider perspective on the relationships within the unit, and use collective monitoring to find new sales opportunities.
