They can prospect for new companies right from the Accounts page, and access company and industry insights from an account or opportunity.

Data.com is available in Salesforce Classic and Lightning Experience.

Customization

What new point-and-click powers have we unleashed this time? Let us count the ways! Lightning page admins can edit not only record pages but the Home page, too.
