CloudBees has been an excellent Salesforce.com customer for years, but was using external systems like Excel and Google spreadsheets to manage the forecasts of their global sales teams. As an extremely fast growing company, CloudBees wanted to streamline this process and bring forecasting onto the Salesforce.com platform.
App Solve worked with CloudBees to understand their current process, and their end-state goals when it came to forecasting. App Solve actioned the plan and configured Collaborative Forecasting for CloudBees within Salesforce so that all global sales forecasting could be completed within the platform.
CloudBees sales reps can now rapidly and easily change their opportunities through forecast stages and manage their pipeline. Sales leadership can get an instantaneous snapshot of their direct reports, their team’s forecast and make quick manager judgments using forecast overrides. CloudBees is now poised to increase their growth as they’ve taken an entire process out of manual upkeep and tied it to their Salesforce.com platform to increase efficiency and productivity.
