Top 5 reasons to use a Salesforce Partner
If your business has decided to invest in Salesforce, it can be tempting to save money by implementing the system yourself. But this is a false assumption. In reality, self-implementation is likely to cost you more, both now and in the long term. This is the simple answer to the question, “What are the reasons to use a Salesforce Partner?”
“Of course you would say that,” you’re probably thinking, “because you’re a Salesforce Partner.” Yes, but a look at our clients — from FTSE 100 enterprises to local SMEs — shows that a good Salesforce Partner has real value.
To give a deeper understanding, we’ve listed the top five reasons to use a Salesforce Partner below.
1. Get the exact features you need
Salesforce is a massively flexible CRM. First you have a choice of Salesforce products, covering everything from sales to marketing and field operations to app development. Then within each product you have a range of configuration options. And on top of that you might have custom development and integration to consider.
To make the right decisions at each step, you need detailed knowledge of what Salesforce is capable of. And that’s exactly what a Salesforce Partner provides — knowledge and experience of how Salesforce can empower different business scenarios.
To get the best result, you need a partner with a strong Salesforce consultancy and CRM development background.
2. Get it done right the first time
There’s nothing as demoralising as spending time, effort, and money on a software project only for it to fail and need costly alterations. Your staff are looking forward to a shiny new CRM that makes them more efficient. By getting their hopes up and then releasing a sub-standard solution, you risk losing their trust.
But with the right Salesforce implementation partner you can rest easy in the knowledge that your CRM will take off perfectly from day one.
3. Get all your data connected
Today’s customers expect interactions to be personalised, seamless, and secure. Creating that experience means integrating data and applications across your entire company. The other upsides of integration are reducing manual errors and gaining a single version of truth to guide financial decisions.
By choosing an experienced Salesforce integration partner, you can turn Salesforce into the centrepiece of your fully integrated enterprise.
4. Get your staff using it properly
Salesforce is designed to automate business processes — but you still need people who know how to use it. That’s why staff training is such a critical part of any Salesforce implementation.
As a leading IT training company both in London and online, we run Salesforce classes for end-users, admins, and more.
5. Get the latest updates
Salesforce is constantly evolving. Three free updates a year give you the latest technological advances before many competitors. But these updates require an expert eye if you want to gain maximum benefit.
