Salesforce.com (News - Alert), the enterprise cloud computing company, recently announced that it is all set to launch the newer version of Salesforce Chatter, an enterprise social network. With the new version, companies will be able to access, create and act on customer information within Salesforce – all in the Chatter feed, from any device.
With Salesforce Chatter, users can access his/her files right in thier browser. They can also share the files securely with a simple drag and drop. They can make comments on files, track version control, and subscribe to receive updates about any changes. The users can also monitor the people, groups, and projects in one spot. With real-time feeds, the teams will work together on fast-moving issues such as sales pursuits, customer projects and marketing campaigns.
The users can form groups that help their teams get organized, share information, collaborate on documents, and work more productively to get things done. They can also set up private groups to work privately on sensitive projects with specific colleagues or public groups for information that's relevant to the whole company.

"The new Salesforce Chatter delivers the next generation of social and mobile CRM to customer companies, transforming the way they connect with their customers in entirely new ways.
