Talent Peaks & Partners @Dreamforce
By: Joram Timmerman
Blog series: Talent Peaks prepares for Salesforce Dreamforce San Francisco
We're in for a treat. Today is the kick off of Dreamforce, the world's greatest event on innovative cloud technology Salesforce organizes in the United States. In this blog series, we will tell you all about the interesting news, insights, developments and features we will discover during this four-day-event. But first, we got the chance to get a taste of the wonderful city of San Francisco. We went for some sight seeing, visited the Salesforce Headoffice and met with some interesting people before the event. And of course, our special reporter Frank is leading the way!
Meeting with partners
Dreamforce is all about being inspired and meeting interesting people. Before the official Dreamforce kick off, we were invited for drinks by our partners Penfield Digital and Appsolutely. Our special reporter Frank seized the opportunity to interview some valued partners. He spoke with Floor Knoups, managing partner of Appsolutely, about the value of partnerships. We are collaborating on some great customer cases now. In this business it's all about people. Thanks to our common drive and our shared DNA, we have a good synergy. This allows us to work closely together and make our customers happy.
Next, our bold little Frank got the chance to meet with Jeff Edwards, VP Global Channels and James Stirk, VP EMEA of FinancialForce. FinancialForce is the leading provider of ERP and PSA cloud solutions on the Salesforce Platform. They are planning to expand SI partnerships in Europe with companies like Talent Peaks. Also, they are launching a reseller program. Check out the interviews here:
Jeff: "The partnership with Talent Peaks is critical to FinancialForce, because they bring a lot of satisfied customers to the table. Moreover, the Talent Peaks consultants have deep knowledge of the Salesforce Platform, so they get down to business quickly and immediately start making impact. For Talent Peaks, a partnership with FinancialForce will bring the opportunity to expand the service proposition to become a more strategic technology consulting partner for customers."
A successful FinancialForce consulting partner must be adequately trained and able to transfer this to the end users. Moreover it is critical to have excellent core skills and knowledge of the possibitities of the Salesforce Platform. Finally, to be successful partners, the mutual sales teams should work closely together.
James: "Talent Peaks has been really important to us as we've grown rapidly in Northern Europe and Talent Peaks has been in the heart of everything we've been trying to do. The experience so far has been absolutely fantastic and we're looking forward to having our partnership moving forward."
ADvendio, a powerful app for the Media Services industry
Talent Peaks is a niche Salesforce consulting partner for media companies. Besides helping customers with implementation of Salesforce for marketing, sales, CPQ and service, there are more opportunities to let Salesforce support the core processes of media companies. That’s exactly where the Salesforce AppExchange becomes relevant! One app we got in contact with is ADvendio. We are very excited to get to know them better and be able to add them to our suite of preferred apps.
ADvendio is a powerful advertising management software on Salesforce for publishers & media companies. It increases add revenue by giving publishers and media companies everything they need to efficiently deliver premium advertising sales and more. Advendio supports digital and streaming media, print and out of home. Customers like Sanoma, Bol.com and De Persgroep already use ADvendio.
