Continuing in the theme of reimagining the products and platform with Lightning in mind, last month, Salesforce announced the new “Lightning Editions” to the world. The new packages include more features for each edition, and with these upgrades come price increases. The base price under the new Lightning model will be $75/user/month for Professional Edition, $150 for Enterprise, and $300 for Unlimited. Existing Salesforce customers will keep their pricing through the course of their contracts, but get all upgrades. So what does it mean for you?
If you’re already happy with your current Salesforce edition, you’re going to be thrilled with the upgrades. Professional orgs are finally getting Workflow, custom Profiles, and more, and the Enterprise and Unlimited editions are getting some nifty new features, including Partial Sandboxes. If you’ve been considering upgrading, your needs may be met with the new features, so take a close look at them and talk to your Account Executive for more details. If you do decide you want to upgrade, or if you’re new to Salesforce, now’s the time to jump! You still have a little time to lock in Classic prices for Lightning Edition features!
