Dreamforce 2015 is here! What we are looking forward to most

Dreamforce 2015 is a few short days away. 2015 will be Revolution Group’s eighth year in attendance, and we couldn’t be more excited to collaborate, innovate, inspire and imagine with some of the best thought leaders in the industry.

 

Ultimate Building Blocks

This year, Revolution Group Admin Jessika Botruff will be participating in a panel discussion called Salesforce Admin Survival Guide: Avoiding Platform Nightmares. As an active member in the FinancialForce Community, Jessika was asked to share Tips and Tricks for implementing different applications within a Salesforce org. Participants will learn how to avoid application nightmares by embracing a single-cloud ecosystem, connecting front office to the back, and discover which customer-centric applications may be right for their organization.

Recently, Jessika led the implementation of FinancialForce within the Revolution Group org. Utilizing a Steering Committee comprised of several members from different departments within Revolution Group, Jessika was able to identify which processes could be optimized within Salesforce and which third party applications they could utilize from the AppExchange.

 

Customer Excellence Awards

Along with participating in the panel discussion, we are also pleased to announce Jessika is a finalist for the Community Champion 360 Customer Excellence Award presented by FinancialForce. As an engaged participant within the FinancialForce Community, Jessika has established herself as a key thought-leader; and as such, was nominated by fellow users and employees of the FinancialForce team.

The FinancialForce team looks to honor those who have been instrumental in driving forward the Community and in helping other Community members to strive for excellence with FinancialForce applications. Winners will be presented with their award Monday, September 14 during the FinancialForce Community Day.
