SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, CodeScience releases its fourth annual State of AppExchange Partners Report, an annual survey and analysis providing the only independent look at the Salesforce AppExchange with insights from companies building their businesses there. This year’s report includes six areas of focus: Product & Company, Growth, Technology & Platform, Salesforce as a Channel, Diversity & Inclusion, and Investment (powered by Crunchbase). Diversity & Inclusion is a new addition to the report and will be included in future reports.

Ultimately, Salesforce AppExchange Partners are not just adapting to the COVID economy, they are thriving. Nearly half, 46%, expect to surpass their original 2020 revenue goals.

Three common characteristics underpinning the success of these companies are:

  1. The repackaging of existing technology into new solutions that solve the challenges customers are facing.
  2. The solutions are positioned as business continuity, rather than digital transformation.
  3. The companies are all investing heavily in R&D, Sales, and Marketing.

As well, Salesforce remains a strong growth channel: 65% of survey respondents with four or more years on the AppExchange state that participation in the Salesforce ISV program increased their revenue.

Finally, investment and M&A activity within the AppExchange ecosystem remained strong: As of December, AppExchange companies had received over $4B in investment.
