Marc Benioff is speaking in San Francisco today in a travelling event called Cloudforce. He’ll be talking about his company’s new image: all about social.To that end, the company completed a pretty impressive feat. It already stitched its newly acquired social human resources tool, Rypple, into the Salesforce.com site. This includes integration with Chatter, Salesforce’s answer to Yammer. 

Rypple is a tool that makes the employee review process “social” and continual. It links employees to corporate projects and objectives. Think project management software meets SharePoint delivered as a service.

The company announced the acquisition in December and the deal closed six weeks ago, Salesforce’s John Wookey told Business Insider.

Salesforce will charge $5 per user, per month.
