Scale-up ROI on Salesforce spending.

Business Metrics to Blueprint

We begin by identifying measurable business objectives to ensure all stakeholders agree on short-term and long-term goals, as well as methods to quantify and qualify success – the business metrics. Once the metrics that drive the business are understood, we conduct stakeholder interviews to model the current and future state as it meets the needs of changing business. Stakeholder interviews define specific user journeys for customers, employees, managers, and partners. In many cases, we build prototypes to enrich stakeholder conversations and facilitate decision making.

At Bolt Today, we have adopted, leveraged, and mastered the industry-standard Business Process Model and Notation 2.0 (BPMN 2.0). BMPN 2.0 is a next-generation BPM technique that tackles the organizational complexities and provides the ability to keep these processes as living documents and provides a common vocabulary to all business groups. This lays the foundation to build the business blueprint that will drive the transformation.

Architectural & Integration Design

At Bolt Today, we believe that a well-architected & designed application can serve as a system of engagements for all things customers. As a Salesforce optimization consultant, our approach starts with understanding the current enterprise IT landscape. The documented business processes and customer journeys are mapped to this IT landscape, and decisions are made about which system will own which part of customer data. We then focus on integration architecture that will enable the customer 360 views into Salesforce. The final step is to decide on governance - the business groups that will own & manage different parts of the customer data.

This architectural blueprint (aka design specifications) ensures that the data flow will satisfy the business success metric. Identifying tools and technologies based on your enterprise IT footprint completes the Salesforce implementation architecture aligned to your business strategy.

ROI-Based Transformation Plan

CFOs in every organization and across the industries are questioning the high $ spend on Salesforce. The business value it brings to the table is not clearly defined. Our transformation planning maps to business success metrics and quantifies the productivity and operational gains it will generate. We have adopted and further modified the design-thinking methodology to achieve this. In addition to the four key questions (What Is, What If, What Wows and What Works), we have also analyzed human aspects of doing, thinking, and feeling.

The result is a set of initiatives that the organization can effectively implement in incremental, ROI-driven phases.

Data is strength. Strategize it and empower your business.

Data Strategy

We know that data is the key to success in this digital age, and organizations are struggling to redefine their business strategies around data. For years, the battle—or at least, the discussion—has centered on two approaches: “tearing down silos” and “creating a data-driven culture". Most organizations have struggled on both fronts. But the solution is not to tear down, or radically reinvent, the organizational structure of our data. Information tends to reside in the location and format relevant to its primary use. That won’t, and shouldn’t, change.

With this core understanding, we will define your data strategy including data migration, data de-duplication, data governance; leading to high quality of your customer data. Salesforce has evolved from just being a sales tool and has become the de-facto enterprise application for all things customer. Our Salesforce optimization services can leverage this evolution and implement the right tools and techniques; using External Objects, Files Connect, Salesforce Connect, or Custom API Integration to maintain data harmony.

Reporting and Dashboards

A “data-driven” culture is one in which data is used to inform every decision, in which every action is a strategic choice using the best available insights. You can’t use data to drive every action until you give every decision maker hands-on access to data and the tools to act on it. This is where our experience and expertise in Salesforce Reporting and Dashboards can significantly help you. We as a Salesforce optimization consultant will help you to work with the users and define the right dashboards for them. We have pre-defined templates across various roles in Marketing, Sales, Service, and Finance.

Adoption & Training

Adoption is the key tenant of any successful project. Like quality, the adoption must be baked in right from the beginning. Our design-thinking methodology lays the foundation for adoption and we ensure that users are heard, their pain points are addressed, and they feel empowered during the transformation projects. As a Salesforce optimization partner, we work with users at every stage, fine-tune priorities and identify champions from every business group which will further ensure adoption stays high.

Smartphones have raised the bar when it comes to user training. The conventional approach of classroom training no more works. Intuitive UX and short how-to videos is an effective way. Implementing In-App guidance is becoming critical with each younger generation. Our approach is to develop these video leveraging the champions, keeping the costs low and user engagement high.
