Time for some Q&A to help familiarize you with managed services? What’s in it for me?

Q: What is Salesforce Managed Service?

A: Salesforce done for you! Often a third-party company such as Cloud Next Level, endorsed by Salesforce to ensure the use of the platform to its full capabilities for your business.

Q: What are some other benefits of Salesforce Managed Service?

Answers:
Cost-Efficiency – No need to maintain an in-house Salesforce team. Skip the attrition, skip the constant training to stay up to date, cut MANY of the person-hours involved in building and running a first-class Salesforce system. Why pay premium salaries for 1 or 2 individuals when you can undercut the cost and have an entire Salesforce-specific team at your fingertips?
Peace of Mind – Rest easy knowing a professional team of Salesforce experts will handle the day-to-day operations crucial to a business’s success. Having instant access to the years of knowledge gained by working in the Salesforce ecosystem is invaluable. We are here when you need us most to optimize your Salesforce and availability to meet all your unique business needs.
Proactive vs. Reactive – Your CRM should never be an aspect of the business that only receives attention when a problem arises. The reactive approach with Salesforce will be impossible to scale and will create potential bottlenecks with more complex issues.  The proactive approach comes automatically with a managed service provider. Managed service providers dedicate their careers to innovating and staying on the cutting edge of what Salesforce offers. Implementing new techniques, updates, and finding/fixing issues before they affect the company is part of the service price.
ROI – You’ve made the call to invest in Salesforce to help drive the success of your business, and what a great call that was! Salesforce managed services offer a shortcut, an optimization plug-in for your initial investment if you will. A great managed service provider will be able to optimize your custom Salesforce application efficiently and effectively, drastically cutting down the time of seeing returns using the world’s #1 CRM.
