Project Description

The IT Architect Case Study

The ability to move ITA out of spreadsheets and provide real-time mobile accessibility has been a huge benefit to ITA. Specifically, in the areas of client response time and productivity.

The IT Architect (ITA) was experiencing growing pains due to using legacy processes that simply didn’t scale, running its business through Google Suite (Gmail, Google Sheets, Google Docs, etc.). Also, because they are a national organization, they had a non-centralized staff working all over the US.
ITA needed a way to not only centralize their sales operations process but needed an easier way to manage their sales pipeline. ITA needed a solution that could address the following needs:

  • Centralize Account and Contact data
  • Centralize Opportunity data and automate their sales process.
  • Create real-time notifications on stalled deals or new deals.
  • Mobile accessibility
  • Integration with Google Suite
  • Sales reports and dashboards

Overall, ITA needed a single solution that could integrate and optimize the organization’s sales process into a 1-stop shop. Also, for its existing Google Suite solution to integrate with Salesforce….and they needed to do it on a budget of less than $7k.

In response to these challenges, ITA partnered with SMBHD to create a Salesforce Sales Cloud implementation that was both inexpensive and impactful from a ROI perspective.

Leveraging Salesforce’s highly scalable Sales Cloud, SMBHD implemented a low cost solution that addressed all of ITA’s primary needs including the centralization of all of their core sales data (contacts, accounts, opportunities, leads), integration with Google Suite, mobile access, and customized sales reports and dashboards.

“Fantastic! Really appreciate the hard work; the project was very clean and efficient!”
