How is Salesforce Excellence different than your typical Managed Services engagement?
Historically, consulting firms have treated their Managed Services clients as a training ground for inexperienced consultants. This is because they structure those engagements in a way where the consultant only does what the client asks, and typically, clients will only ask for fairly standard configuration updates.
The purpose of Salesforce Excellence is so much more than simply running and maintaining your Salesforce environment. Our goal is to guide you in your Salesforce journey so you can get the most out of the platform. With Salesforce Excellence, we offer strategic initiatives such as Architecture Review and Roadmap Planning so that we can help you prepare your business for the future.
To Kelley Austin, success means helping our clients find the best solutions possible so that you take full advantage of the Salesforce platform.
Where Salesforce Excellence Fits Your Company
There is an obvious fit if your company doesn’t employ a Salesforce expert, but even if you have a Salesforce Admin on staff and/or you purchase Premier Success from Salesforce directly, the Kelley Austin Salesforce Excellence Program still benefits you greatly.
Salesforce Administrator on Staff
Your internal Salesforce Admin is only one person. That means their time, availability and skillset is limited.
We work with many companies that have an Admin in-house and bring value by focusing on the tasks they either don’t have the time or expertise to handle.
This also protects your company if your admin were to ever take a new role so all of the knowledge about your Salesforce org doesn’t walk out the door with them.
Salesforce Premier Success
Premier Success can be great for your team to get help with one-off questions or participate in the training accelerators offered.
You can use Premier Success strategically so that you are reserving your Salesforce Excellence hours for more strategic tasks that require intimate knowledge of your business.
As we work with you, there’s a decent chance that formal projects will arise with specific deliverables and timelines. With Salesforce Excellence, we can run these engagements in parallel and you’ll have consistency with your project team.
Typically, you would need a project team to spend a lot of time learning your business, but since we’ve been doing that as part of our Salesforce Excellence program, we'll ensure the project team can hit the ground running. At the end of the project, the Salesforce Excellence team will take the baton on training and adoption.
Our team will work directly with the people on your staff in as much capacity as necessary to understand the full picture and how Salesforce can be effective.
Our team will make sure each department know hows to get the most out of the system.
