Today we are delighted to launch a new product, Connector for Salesforce and JIRA Service Desk (Cloud). This connector focuses on bringing a seamless experience of Salesforce to JIRA Service Desk. Your customer service team has direct access to customer information, right from within JIRA Service Desk. It automatically finds the matching Contacts, Accounts and other vital information of your customers in Salesforce and directly represents them in your JIRA Service Desk request, without hassle. The connector enables your support team to act faster and more efficiently, reduces the friction between your sales team and support team.
Since the mid-1980s, organizations have been implementing shared services to improve service levels, reduce costs, and improve controls. According to Deloitte, 80% of Fortune 500 companies such as Ford, Intel, Whirlpool and Allergan use shared services in their operations. Although shared services is not a new concept, many organizations struggle with realizing its full potential. As the Deloitte Shared Services Handbook describes it, "It often seems that where ever you are in your shared services journey, you still have a way to go. But the journey is always easier if you have sorted out the fundamentals."

One major friction point in organizations is how to update people who missed meetings. Now that BlueJeans is Integrated with Workplace by Facebook, keeping people informed is as easy as broadcasting your BlueJeans meetings directly into Workplace.
On April 18, 2017, at Facebook's F8 Conference, the Workplace team made several announcements that extend the functionality of Workplace to include much more useful functions to improve a company's ability to get more done, make faster decisions, and communicate better. Many of these announcements are long awaited improvements that will make many organizations very happy.
One of the best features of Workplace by Facebook is live streaming video. It is easy to "Go Live" from a smartphone and from a browser on your desktop. It is a great way to communicate updates to a team, do executive "Ask Me Anything" sessions, and interviews with employees while traveling to different offices. We use live streaming quite a bit for communicating at ServiceRocket. There are many ways to improve communications and bring people together using live streaming at work.
