What do you want to know?

Salesforce for Utilities: Every company in your industry has different needs. Accordingly, our Salesforce Cloud recommendations are general. A combination of Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, Field Service Lightning, Community Cloud, and Marketing Cloud empowers you to create new momentum for your sales force, redefine how you serve your customers, delight your customers with new products and energy solutions, and deliver personalized marketing that leads to increased customer satisfaction and long-term customer loyalty.

As a cloud-based solution, Salesforce already offers numerous native customization options. As a Salesforce Boutique Partner, we know the industry-specific challenges and, with expertise in the energy supply sector, can adapt your Salesforce system to your needs. Using Salesforce or Custom Development, we will further develop the system as you need it. As a MuleSoft partner, we also offer you simple and intelligent integration of numerous systems, devices and applications. All around: Salesforce is as flexible as you are!

Set new standards with an innovative backup strategy and data protection you and your customers can trust: As a cloud-based CRM solution, Salesforce protects the data of your customers and all your stakeholders from the start with encryption and centralized storage locations, as well as numerous backups and backups. Encryption keeps data inaccessible, so you can work with Salesforce with peace of mind. If you want additional encryption of your data streams, we can implement Salesforce Shield for you.

From experience, IT systems are operated by energy suppliers over a long period of time. Many proprietary developments and additional modules are in use, which makes a changeover increasingly difficult. However, this is not a problem: We implement the integration of Salesforce to your ERP system such as SAP or even a self-developed software for you. On the one hand, we use already existing API solutions of our partners. If this is not possible, our in-house development team will develop the interface itself and thus ensure a smooth exchange of data between the systems.

As a digitization partner, we first advise you on which clouds are geeginet for you and the digitization of your respective business processes. We also carry out the implementation and, if desired, support you beyond the go-live of your new system. We accompany you not only on a technical level in the digitization, but also enable an optimal transition to Salesforce thanks to targeted change management and Salesforce training or training with your employees.
