Force.com account setup

Hi all,

I'm new to Salesforce and would like to ask for more information about different salesforce editions and versions. Our team wants to use an organization, with Force.com account to be used as PaaS for custom application development. This means without the standard CRM features, which Salesforce.com provides like Campaigns, Leads, Opportunities, or Cases. But to get access to the “Core” functionality of Accounts and Contacts, Reports, Dashboards, Documents, and Activities and Custom Objects.  I know the Salesforce platform (https://www.salesforce.com/products/platform/lightning/?d=70130000000f27V&internal=true) can be used for this case. I have a free trial to test it out but still, it provides me features for Salesforce standard license, not for Salesforce platform license. Would please tell me which edition and licenses are best to be used when I want to use Force.com as a platform.

Hi Ralitsa,

If you want to use Reports & Dashboard, Automation Tools (Process Builder, Workflow) I would suggest to opt for Enterprise edition. 

Here is the costing of different editions. https://www.salesforce.com/in/editions-pricing/app-cloud/

You can contact me directly, if you need assistance. 

Thanks,
