Salesforce Implementation Partners: Choose The Right Partner for Your Business

There are hundreds of Salesforce implementation partners out there. If you’re a Salesforce client looking for some outside expertise to help you get the most from your Salesforce investment, the choice can seem overwhelming. What partner will be right for your business? Will they understand your industry/niche? How do you know if they have the experience/expertise to do what they promise? Are they really worth the money? Add in the opportunity costs that come with a bad implementation, and it’s understandable why choosing the right partner is such a high-stakes decision.

The Benefits of Salesforce Implementation Partners

A well-implemented instance of Salesforce is more than just another solution to add to your tech stack. When done right, the Salesforce CRM platform offers profound benefits for your business, including:

  • More efficient processes across all departments, including sales, marketing, service, accounting, and more.
  • The ability to see a true, comprehensive picture of your business where departments are seamlessly connected, providing a complete set of information for informed decision-making.
  • An enhanced understanding and connection with your customers, leading to a more positive customer experience.
  • More sophisticated sales and marketing capabilities, enabling you to reach and convert a greater number of prospects into customers than ever before.

Choosing a good Salesforce implementation partner ensures that you are able to fully realize these benefits and get maximum ROI from Salesforce. The best Salesforce partners, however, take the time to understand your business, and do more than act as order takers who implement your technical requests.

The best Salesforce partners come alongside you, get to know your business, and work with you to reach short term goals as well as progress towards your long-term vision for your business. A partner with high levels of business acumen, technical expertise, and relevant experience can help you:

  • Identify the areas in need of professionalization within your business, and implement the right solutions so you can operate more efficiently and cohesively throughout.
  • Understand the opportunities for growth within your business and industry, and equip you with the technical platform and processes needed to capitalize on them.
  • Plan for the future and build a strong, scalable foundation for growth.

Not all Salesforce partners are created equal. An average partner may give you a functional Salesforce instance. At worst, a bad partner may lead to a failed implementation, costing you time, wasting you money, and setting your business back. But a great partner has the potential to provide an amplifying effect to your business, helping you use the power of the Salesforce platform to do more than you thought possible, and setting you up for future resilience and success.

How to Choose a Salesforce Implementation Partner

Choosing the right Salesforce implementation partner is crucial to the success of your CRM strategy. As you are evaluating potential partners, be sure to consider the following criteria:

  • Personnel and certifications: Verify that the partner has a qualified team with Salesforce certifications and relevant experience.
  • Experience with Salesforce products: Ensure they have a solid track record with relevant Salesforce products and solutions.
  • Positive reviews on AppExchange: Look for partners with good ratings and positive feedback on Salesforce AppExchange.
  • Relevant client experience: Choose a partner with experience in working with your type of business (e.g. if you have an HVAC business, ideally the partner has experience working with field service businesses in general, or even HVAC companies specifically).
  • Industry-specific knowledge: Prioritize partners with experience in your specific industry (e.g. an online health platform should choose a partner with experience working with technology businesses in the healthcare industry).
  • Alignment with business goals: Choose a partner that desires to understand and align with your long-term business objectives, and that acts as a strategic partner to help you meet those goals.
  • Communication and collaboration: Evaluate their communication style and willingness to collaborate closely with your team.
