In fact, a number of animals do so — in many cases, they are aided by an array of specialized adaptations that allow them to leverage the environment to their advantage. For example, the thorny dragon lizard literally absorbs water through its skin, and the fennec fox has oversized ears that it uses as natural “radiators.”

That’s our philosophy,” said CloudCraze EVP Andrew Witherspoon. “What is the purpose of CRM and marketing? It’s to reach out, find and engage prospects, and to move them through a buying cycle.
