Digitcom will be launching Salesforce in the next month, first for our sales department, and then service, followed by our accounting department. We have approximately 50 users. The first concern is doing a data clean-up of our current Tigerpaw SQL database and preparing the SQL data for importation into Salesforce. We're looking for a consultant to assist and guide us along the entire process including importing SQL data and correctly mapping that into Salesforce, and then, and more especially, in assisting with best practices of what and how to successfully launch Salesforce Lightning Sales, and Service Cloud. The expectation is that you have extensive experience in implementing Salesforce, and are able to travel to Toronto for the launch. We'll pay for travel and expenses to Toronto of course during your stay. I suspect there will be two trips to Toronto, one for the launch of sales, the other for service, and both trips will include doing training of our end users.
Our company is currently using a product from Tigerpaw Software: http://www.tigerpawsoftware.com/ We will be moving from Tigerpaw to Salesforce. We have approximately 28,000 accounts that need to be migrated, each account has on average 5 contacts, and some accounts have hundreds of data sets. I suspect there are at least 2 million records that need to be moved across. Not everything will happen at once, it will be done in stages.
This project will start soon, so the expectation is that you will be able to begin in the next week, and work for at least 20 to 30 hours / week for the next few weeks, and I suspect this project will take at least 4 months. It isn't necessarily full time, but, there's a lot of work to do. We're looking for someone with extensive experience in Salesforce who can guide the process along properly, understand use case, database importation and clean-up, training, best practices, service and sales.
I'm not expecting a full quote here. I'm looking for a qualified Salesforce developer and consultant that has the certifications, skill, and time to devote to this project. If you do, please reply with your skills, hourly rate, and availability.
