Salesforce has launched Einstein 1 Studio, providing admins and developers with the tools to customize and embed AI across every Salesforce app and workflow.

Amongst the customizable tools will be the Einstein Copilot.

Launched in beta last week, Salesforce’s new virtual assistant is embedded directly within the company’s AI CRM applications and promises the user unheralded data integration.

The CRM giant stated that the Einstein 1 Studio has been introduced to help tackle the issue that companies are having with “unlocking the power of AI across their business.”

With Salesforce reporting that GenAI has significantly altered the way that IT professionals implement and use technology, it believes that customers are craving an intuitive, easy-to-navigate interface.

Salesforce’s answer? The Einstein 1 Studio.

The tool enables low-code and no-code customization of the Einstein Copilot, as well as build and modify features – allowing users to seamlessly connect AI models across the workflow and provide tailored customer experiences.

In discussing the potential of the new tool, Clara Shih, CEO of Salesforce AI, commented:

Our new Einstein 1 Studio makes it easy for admins and developers to build and customize Einstein Copilot and embed AI apps in the flow of work within Salesforce, tailored to the specific requirements of their company and industry.

“Einstein 1 Studio’s low-code tools democratize AI app development, unleashing a new wave of innovation that will transform workflows and augment human capabilities across every team and function.”

The Right Tools for the Job

The “new wave of innovation” that Shih mentions will be engineered using the following three tools that are available within the Einstein 1 Studio:

Copilot Builder

Currently available in beta, Copilot Builder is designed to enable users to customize and configure the Einstein Copilot to match their business needs.

Working in tandem with existing tools such as Apex and Flow, customers can deploy GenAI prompts to direct the Copilot to complete tasks across the workflow.

Prompt Builder

As the name suggests, the prompt builder tool gives admins and developers the capability to easily craft custom, reusable prompts without the need of coding.

By simplifying the process, companies will be able to utilize GenAI beyond the traditional conversational interfaces, as prompts can be implemented throughout the business.

Model Builder

The major selling point of the Model Builder is the fact that it provides the Einstein 1 Studio with the ability to connect to various AI models, rather than being stuck with a single LLM – like many of its contemporaries.

Moreover, users can actually build predictive AI models of their own, by leveraging their Data Cloud data.

Like the Einstein Copilot, 1 Studio is also supported by the Einstein Trust Layer, which promises to “help companies benefit from generative AI without compromising security or safety standards.”

A Big Week for Salesforce

While Einstein 1 Studio is today’s big headline, yesterday also saw Salesforce in the spotlight, with the announcement that the CRM firm has onboarded 1,839 new employees in the last quarter.

As the company aims to bolster its workforce with AI experts and boomerang hires, as of January 31, 2024, Salesforce’s employee count stands at 72,682, a significant increase from the previous quarter’s 70,843.

CEO Marc Benioff had previously pledged to onboard 3,300 new employees in September 2023, suggesting the company may continue its hiring spree.

The current expectations are that Salesforce will add another 1,500 team members in the upcoming months, if not more.
