Sales Cloud is the most popular Salesforce® QuickStart implementation we offer – and for very good reason. Moving from spreadsheets to Salesforce makes a huge difference – like a new industrial revolution. By standardizing your sales pipeline you can dramatically improve your sales performance and close more deals faster. Let’s take a closer look at why so many start their digital transformation with a Salesforce Sales Cloud QuickStart.
The benefits of a Sales Cloud QuickStart
For the last 15 years, Sales Cloud has been recognized as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant and is known as the best in customer relationship management (CRM) – a title it very much deserves. It’s superb for boosting sales, providing visibility into deals and making it easy to manage and track their performance.
Sales Cloud empowers organizations with a single source of truth, providing a 360-degree view into customer interactions, helping sales teams unite around their customers and strengthen relationships with prospects. Equipped with transformative automation tools, sales managers no longer need to worry about manual, repetitive tasks and can focus on what’s truly important: their sales goals.
Empower your sales reps
With Sales Cloud, every sales team can benefit from powerful lead management capabilities. They guarantee clear data organization and seamless automation of everyday tasks, so sales teams can focus on converting leads into customers with key metrics close at hand.
What’s more, Sales Cloud makes it easier for teams to keep up with the customer’s journey. Now they can improve conversion rates, accelerate sales cycles and save hundreds of hours.
Achieve your sales goals
Real-time access to prospect data is possible with pipeline forecasting, which also provides customized forecasts and sales insights. This helps to adjust strategy on the go and focus on the most promising deals. With these capabilities, along with a range of other productivity-optimizing features, insights and integrations, boosting sales has never been easier.
Moving from spreadsheets and disparate databases to Sales Cloud will be a driving force for your sales team. The quicker you switch into a modern solution, the faster you’ll see groundbreaking changes, and with a VRP QuickStart you can get your Sales Cloud implementation completed in just four weeks.
Let me share some examples of how our customers have benefited from our tried-and-tested Salesforce QuickStart practice in Krakow, Poland.
How one UK recycling company moved from spreadsheets to the cloud
A UK-based recycling company reached out to us, looking for better visibility and easier management of sales and opportunities. Using spreadsheets was no longer sufficient. They particularly struggled with tracking accounts with multiple addresses, as well as keeping track of invoice due dates. After reviewing their main challenges, we streamlined opportunity management with process automations and implemented solutions that simplify invoice date tracking.
To bring further transparency, we configured reports focused not only on opportunities but also on products, along with a new price book and tools for discounts for selected customers. Their sales managers were delighted with a custom tool that sends notifications automatically after 2 weeks of inactivity on an opportunity.
This move made the work of the sales team easier and more productive. Opportunity management is now simplified and automated, and the client’s sales team can save time and focus on prioritizing the most important deals. In the end, we received excellent feedback from the customer, to our great satisfaction.
How one Swedish manufacturing client resolved increasing demands from sales teams in no time
Rapid growth had brought this Swedish client new challenges. Their existing system involved Excel spreadsheets, emails and information scattered among their sales reps, and it was causing bottlenecks and preventing their ability to scale. They wanted to move to a streamlined solution on the cloud that would enable automation and better collaboration.
We implemented a new Sales Cloud solution to simplify and unify their sales processes and on-site visits. The combination of easy data entry, standardized processes, automations and reports have accelerated their sales process.
Now the client can continue to grow and has gained key insights to further optimize performance. They were so impressed with the success of this implementation that we have already initiated the next phase of their Salesforce implementation.
What to expect during a QuickStart Journey?
We’ve optimized and perfected our QuickStart process over countless implementations. As you’ve seen in these use cases, we’re able to deliver best-practice solutions within short timelines, realizing value faster.
Whether you prefer us to work with you fully remotely or a hybrid approach with some of our team on-site, we will always start with a discovery session to be able to understand your business and provide a solution tailored specifically to your needs.
We conduct show-and-tell sessions to update you on the project’s progress and discuss any necessary adjustments, including possible apps available on the Salesforce AppExchange. You won’t have to worry about training your team – we handle user adoption and provide tutorials and documentation to make the transition to the new platform as smooth as possible.
What are your options?
Starting with Salesforce is easier than you think if you have the right partner on your side. You don’t need to spend a lot of money on a Global Systems Integrator (GSI), invest in a costly in-house team or risk future issues with an inexperienced freelancer. Choosing a Salesforce QuickStart expert such as VRP will guarantee a swift, cost-effective and secure solution that can grow with your business.
As an award-winning Salesforce Consulting Partner, we guarantee quality and security. With our customer-obsessed approach, we make sure to understand the key business drivers and deliver the best option using best practices.
Jumpstart your Sales Cloud with a QuickStart
While a Salesforce QuickStart is the best way for small and medium-sized companies to get straight to the benefits of Salesforce without a big commitment of time and resources, the support of an experienced partner can make all the difference.
