“Internal collaboration and a true partnership with our ACC team made it easy to stand up a CRM System that will further enable growth and mission success in the future”
-Ashlie Strackbein, Vice President, External Affairs
ServiceSource needed a Customer Relationship Management System (CRM) to view and manage their contract and grant opportunity pipeline. They were managing this data in spreadsheets. They knew that by using Salesforce they could have better visibility and collaboration into their pipeline which would lead to greater efficiency to ultimately support more employment for people with disabilities.
Agile Cloud Consulting (ACC) deployed Salesforce’s Sales Cloud to achieve a one-stop view of opportunities and contracts in the pipeline and their status and category – customized to meet ServiceSource’s reporting needs. ACC also configured Salesforce Inbox so all users see a complete view of engagement and Single Sign On and Multi-Factor Authentication for greater staff efficiency and system security.
Technology implementations are most successful when a Customer has an active senior management champion and stakeholders have a voice throughout the project. ServiceSource had a senior management champion who was very involved and collaborative with both the ACC team and internal stakeholders at ServiceSource. She led the user acceptance training while the ACC consultant made live tweaks based on the feedback and consensus heard from the entire team. The end users were encouraged to voice their needs during all discovery sessions.
The outcome: ServiceSource built a solution meeting their end users’ desired process and reporting needs all within budget and timeline.
