Digital innovation provider Solnet announces partnership with Salesforce

16 May 17

New Zealand digital innovation provider Solnet announced today that it is now a Salesforce Consulting Partner.

Solnet managing director Mark Botherway said the new partnership reflects both the company’s growth and its ongoing commitment to aligning Solnet’s services to technology domains that resonate with its clients.

“We are seeing more and more organisations thinking strategically about what components they need in place to maximise their return on digital transformation,” says Botherway.

“This is especially true when it comes to connecting up customer data.”

 “Solnet’s expertise lies in developing connected applications that leverage information from Salesforce, often combined with other data sources and/or systems to deliver additional value and differentiation.”

“This is not always straightforward and requires enterprise-class skills; an area in which Solnet has a strong track record,” says Botherway.

Botherway says the company’s recent success with a large enterprise project involving a Salesforce-connected-application proves the value of suitably skilled partners like Solnet.

“We engaged with a major player in the agribusiness sector to extend their Salesforce implementation,” he says.

“At an enterprise level, it made real sense for them to get their customer data into one place and then wrap extended functionality around it.”

“Solnet was able to assist with technical strategy and leadership to ensure that full value was realised from the project,” says Botherway.

According to Botherway, the Salesforce partnership is a continuation of its strategy to ensure Solnet’s tools, technologies, techniques and talent, are aligned to deliver world-class outcomes to its Kiwi clients, helping them to remain relevant, competitive and successful in a digital world.

“We are being quite deliberate in our thinking around digital platforms; actively exploring partnerships and technologies that we believe can offer significant value to the market.”

“This includes investigating how both business and government clients can utilise the likes of AI, Bots and other maturing technologies,” says Botherway.
