Why work with SOLJIT for Salesforce in Manufacturing?
By far, the best reason to work with SOLJIT is that we want your business to be successful now and in the long term.
We are a Salesforce partner
SOLJIT has been doing Salesforce projects since 2011. We are a Silver Consulting Partner of Salesforce. We’ve helped many manufacturing companies reach their goals of improved efficiency, lower operational costs, faster sales cycles, better partner relationships, and better customer experience.
Our Salesforce experts are certified
Our team boasts Salesforce certified business analysts and developers, to ensure that you get the most out of your solution, from project kick-off, to implementation, to handoff.
Our team includes senior manufacturing executives
It helps if you’ve been there, done that. A Cloud implementation partner can be highly motivated and well-intentioned, but if they have never worked in the manufacturing space, understanding your business can be a difficult task. Our team includes senior level executives coming from the manufacturing industry, who have worked both in fortune 500 manufacturers and smaller scale manufacturers, experiencing high growth, that are looking to scale.
We understand manufacturing sales cycles
We understand that the sales cycles can differ wildly between manufacturers. Some may be using a transactional e-commerce business model, some go through a large network of distributors, and others have a lengthier process that bundles products along with installation and/or commissioning services. We’ll take the time to really understand your business model, and implement the solution best adapted to your ideal sales process.
We understand manufacturing operations
Unlike software and services companies, the operations of manufacturing companies have more critical dependencies in the physical world. This includes supply chain, shipping, and, in certain instances, field services. When implementing a Cloud platform to optimize the processes of one or several of your organization’s departments, we take into account the full picture, so you can get the most out of the processes and synergies critical to your operations.
