PLEASANTON, CA: Steelwedge, cloud Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) and demand management solutions, announces the launch of Sales Pipeline Bridge on Salesforce1 AppExchange, enabling businesses to associate with customers, partners and employees in a novel method.
Steelwedge Sales Pipeline Bridge methodically gains sales opportunities in users’ Salesforce1 Sales Cloud and smartly categorizes, transforms collected data into a view meaningful for the finance, product management, operations and executive management. With this solution, companies can arrange sales pipeline-based and demand history-based forecasts, making it possible to quickly identify and respond to changing market conditions and improve revenue predictability. Sales pipeline information provides a very useful perception of demand from the account executive and also enables companies to incorporate the latest “socially-enhanced” sales pipeline information from Salesforce directly into the demand plan.
“Sales Pipeline Bridge delivers an entirely new way for companies to incorporate sales funnel information into their demand plans,” says Glen Margolis, Steelwedge CEO. “Enabling the capture of social signals from the Salesforce1 Platform, Sales Pipeline Bridge offers users the ability to convey insightful information on things like sales cycle status and confidence levels to inform demand planning. By consolidating opportunities, incorporating product details, and integrating them into the demand planning process, companies can create accurate plans.”
“Companies are looking to transform the way they connect with customers, partners and employees to thrive in today’s connected world,” says Ron Huddleston, Senior Vice President, global AppExchange and partner program, salesforce.com. “By leveraging the power of the Salesforce1 Customer Platform, Steelwedge provides customers with the proven social, mobile and connected cloud technologies to accelerate business success.”
The solution is rooted in Salesforce1 Customer Platform, the new social, mobile and cloud customer platform and is available on AppExchange.
