Migration to Salesforce
Apt Systems’ experts met with the stakeholders to examine their existing approach and practices in order to better understand what is important for them and what makes them unique. Based on the results of the process, business and data analysis the team designed and proposed a Salesforce solution and how the integration could be implemented.
Once the proposed solution was approved, we began with the design and implementation of custom functionalities, following best practices and highest security standards. We utilized a PHP middleware application for the integration between Salesforce, JIRA, Confluence, Redmine and GSuite. We recommended the PHP app because it allows a centralized flow of information between the systems and serves as a bible for the current and any future implementations. The team also created user-friendly reports improving the reporting functionality of the previous CRM. Leveraging our Salesforce expertise we were also able to migrate the legacy CRM reporting database to Salesforce so that users can enjoy a seamless transition. We developed a custom solution using Data Loader on the back end in order to mix and match data properly before it is inserted into Salesforce. Using custom components we have extended the functionality of the out of the box Opportunity object, making the user journey during the deal information entry smoother.
The digital transformation and optimization required a lot of changes and if they were introduced all at once, the company would have suffered a slowdown and the stakeholders would now be able to obtain end-user feedback and adjust the implementation accordingly. Thus, the most logical approach was to adopt the agile methodology, which would ensure that we have a smooth product-delivery process without release delays.
