The Investable Memphis website allows users to explore the profiles of local companies that are supported by the organization. The website was powered by a database that cost the organization thousands of dollars a year, and the database was only used to provide content for the website. The organization wanted to use their new Salesforce CRM to supply website content thereby eliminating a costly secondary database and storing all business information in one centralized location.
Epicenter Memphis worked with Agile Cloud to move the business database content into Salesforce. The information from the external database was migrated to the accounts object in Salesforce, and Agile aligned the content to standard and custom fields in Salesforce. Users at Epicenter Memphis can now select which business accounts are displayed on the website with a simple preference in Salesforce. To display account data on the site, custom development was required. Agile Cloud programmed the website, developed the search features, and designed the layout for the business profile pages.
Epicenter Memphis was able to expand their use of Salesforce by adding this account data to the new system. This allowed the organization to discontinue use of the external database and save money. The staff can now focus on one system to house critical information about businesses. The centralized information also enables Epicenter Memphis staff to engage with business partners and easily enter data about new entrepreneurs and their businesses. The staff can easily indicate which data should be displayed on the Investable Memphis website.
