Conan O'Brien says "Bring It Together."

Account aggregation market

The account aggregation market is continuing to expand as the rise of online banking advances. Other factors in the growth of this market include increasing demand for account aggregators for financial services such as lenders or portfolio management services.

  • Use this angle: Focus on how Salesforce can help account aggregation companies manage the rapid growth of customer data, maintain ease of use for users, and provide clear communication with clients.

Investment banking

The global investment banking market is expected to reach $231.12 billion by 2026 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.4%. Reasons for industry growth include an increasing amount of mergers and acquisitions as investment banking companies continue to focus on expanding their product offerings.

Point of sale (POS) solutions

The POS industry took a hit during the pandemic, but the rise of contactless payments is giving this industry a boost with strong growth predicted through 2032. Specifically, the industry is expected to grow at a steady CAGR of 7.8%, totaling at least $180 billion by 2032. The continued expansion of digital transformation is driving the industry.

  • Use this angle: Focus on how Salesforce can help POS businesses increase visibility, improve compliance/reduce operational risk, and optimize customer engagement.



Adapt. React. Readapt.

Adapt to survive

When you’re working in sales, it can be easy to get stuck in a process, even if it’s no longer working as well as it used to. It’s critical that we learn to adapt, and to help the clients we serve do the same. Check out the Harvard Business Review for 4 priorities that will help organizations evolve.
