Alternative and ServiceMax will host a joint webinar August 19 with shared customer Westmor discussing Salesforce Native Applications
July 30, 2015 – Aliso Viejo, CA: Alternative Technology Solutions, the leading CRM and ERP solution and service provider that brings the best of the cloud to manufacturers, today announced that it is hosting a live webinar event on Wednesday, August 19 in partnership with ServiceMax.
“One of the great things about the Salesforce Independent Solution Vendor market is that there are so many partners that provide cloud point solutions that address specific business challenges,” said Vivian Keena, Alternative CEO. “We’re looking forward to a webinar in partnership with ServiceMax and our shared customer, Westmor, to show just how much versatility and functionality can be added to the core Salesforce CRM platform with the addition of best-of-breed applications.”
The live webinar event will focus on the success Westmor has experienced with Salesforce and how it has used Alternative’s iQ Configure, Price, Quote application and ServiceMax’s field service solution to derive additional value and usability from the Salesforce platform.
“Salesforce is an incredibly powerful tool and it’s made a huge difference in the effectiveness of our team,” said Beth Koehl at Westmor. “Bringing in iQ to handle our complex, configured quoting and ServiceMax to help us manage our field service activities has helped the team to better adopt Salesforce and, in turn, for the company to see better results from our customers.”
iQ Configure, Price, Quote is a native Salesforce application built to handle the advanced quoting needs of manufacturers and distributors. Seamless on Salesforce, it streamlines the quoting process while handling complex and configured items; price breaks; kits, BOMs, and routings on the fly; instant collaboration and reviews through Chatter; and many more details that meet the specific needs of manufacturers and distributors.
