Leading Partner Relationship Management Vendor Answers Customer Demand with Sophisticated and Flexible Salesforce.com Collaboration Tool
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., — RelayWare, a global provider of cloud-based partner relationship management (PRM) software, today announced RelayWare Salesforce.com Integration Connector, a flexible, off-the-shelf interface that enables actionable communication between Salesforce’s customer relationship management (CRM) software and RelayWare’s market-leading PRM solution. Although fundamentally different, PRM and CRM are strategically complimentary and RelayWare customers can now leverage each system’s synergetic capabilities to achieve a cohesive sales platform. With the new connector, vendors benefit from enhanced sales productivity stemming from clean, consistent and high quality sales data across the enterprise. Tying in a dedicated PRM system, customers receive closed loop sales and marketing collaboration from the vendor through the partner to the end customer which directly affects, and grows, the bottom line.
Salesforce is the industry’s leading CRM solution and manages the relationship between the direct sales force and its customers; similarly, RelayWare PRM is utilized by the indirect sales force to manage all channel-related opportunities. RelayWare’s Salesforce.com Connector unites these different yet equally important systems to ensure consistent communication across an organization’s sales force. By removing the firewall between PRM and CRM systems, the Connector eradicates time consuming, error-riddled manual entry processes and ensures that all sales leads are automatically directed to the correct business unit providing both groups the ability to drive sales with consistent, actionable data.
"Today’s announcement formalizes what we’ve already been executing with our customers," said Mike Morgan, chief executive officer of RelayWare. "Because Salesforce.com has such a large footprint, our team has been working in the field to join these two imperative business tools for awhile now. The customers who participated in our beta test program saw incremental profits from partner-led leads and renewals dwarf the investment made in RelayWare within a month of deployment; delivering a substantial ROI."
Sophisticated and flexible enough to connect to both standard and customized Salesforce applications, the Salesforce.com Connector operates in tandem with all RelayWare’s products. Designed to address the complexity of an indirect sales model based on a company’s business priorities, timescales and budget, RelayWare is available in three solutions: RelayWare Connect, an out-of-the-box solution that incorporates PRM best practices for partner programs at an early evolutionary stage; RelayWare PRM, a sophisticated enterprise solution designed to optimize every phase of a partner program; RelayWare Partner Lifecycle Management (PLM), a system with enhanced functionality to address the most complex and sophisticated global partner programs.
