Salesforce Advisory Services

Known mostly for its CRM platform, Salesforce is in fact one of the big SaaS players with a plethora of cloud solutions that require specialist expertise and continuous management. Organisations are increasingly subscribing to several Salesforce clouds, but often overlook the complexity that it brings. Effectively managing current subscriptions, understanding agreements and entitlements, forecasting future demand and preparing for major Salesforce renewals can be resource intensive and requires specialist knowledge.

SoftwareOne’s Advisory Services help Salesforce customers to fully understand, optimise and govern their Salesforce contracts. We do this by providing a comprehensive analysis of their contracts and looking at potential to reduce their contract costs, identifying potential areas of improvement and providing cost management capabilities, as well as increased ROI by analysing usage to identify inefficiencies.
