Salesforce and CVS Health Enter into Strategic Relationship
San Francisco, CA, USA, Aug. 10, 2020 - Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), a global provider in CRM, announced a strategic relationship with CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) that will allow customers to use each company's COVID-19 return to work and campus solutions together, as they transition employees and students back to worksite and campus locations. The offering will enable customers to use Salesforce Work.com workplace management capabilities, including wellness monitoring and manual contact tracing solutions, informed by CVS Health's Return Ready, a COVID-19 testing solution, to support comprehensive reopening strategies for customers and their stakeholders.
Both companies launched separate solutions to help organizations strengthen their response to COVID-19. Salesforce created Work.com, a suite of applications and advisory resources, to help businesses reopen their workplaces while prioritizing the health of their stakeholders. CVS Health launched Return Ready, providing organizations with the flexibility of choosing from multiple COVID-19 testing options—from testing with licensed professionals onsite at the workplace to testing at one of the more than 1,800 CVS Pharmacy COVID-19 drive-thru testing locations.
"While COVID-19 testing is an important tool to responsibly reopen worksite and campus locations, a comprehensive strategy requires wellness monitoring and contact tracing to help prevent an onsite outbreak and spread of the virus," said Troyen Brennan, M.D., M.P.H., Chief Medical Officer of CVS Health. "While there are a lot of COVID-19 tools hitting the market, the Work.com capabilities use the latest science and technology, and we believe together, with our Return Ready testing solution and clinical protocols, we can help our customers activate a comprehensive plan to return and maintain critical populations onsite."
Complementary Services Enable Integrated Process
"Testing and manual contact tracing are key factors for organizations to reopen their shared locations and other shared spaces safely," said Dr. Ashwini Zenooz, Chief Medical Officer at Salesforce. "Together, Salesforce and CVS Health are able to help organizations access solutions and services to help decrease the risks that individuals face as they transition back to their worksite and campus locations."
