News : Salesforce Unveils Lightning Customer Community
San Francisco, CA, USA, June 23, 2016 -- Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), a Customer Success Platform and CRM company, announced Lightning Customer Community—establishing a new benchmark for web and mobile customer community experiences.

Salesforce first introduced Community Cloud in 2013, allowing companies to extend their brand experience through vibrant communities of customers.

And today, Salesforce continues to raise the bar with Lightning Customer Community, the most advanced and intelligent community platform available. The re-imagined Lightning Customer Community includes many new features.
"In today's connected world, customers expect every experience to be fast, personal and seamless," said Mike Micucci, GM and SVP, Salesforce Community Cloud. "The new Lightning Customer Community is connected directly into the Salesforce Customer Success Platform, providing companies with the intelligence needed to exceed expectations and build deeper relationships with their customers."
Lightning Customer Community is generally available today with the purchase of any Community Cloud license.
Partner-built Lightning Components from CloudCraze and OSF Global Services are generally available today.
