From Data to Actionable Insights
ESI of Tennessee is a solution provider in the steam, power, and energy industry. They originally approached Ad Victoriam Solutions (AdVic) to help them implement a Salesforce Sales Cloud solution. Not long after that successful implementation, ESI came back to AdVic because they desired specific enhancements for their org.
The Sales Cloud Enhancements Challenge
ESI wanted enhanced KPI’s, as well as executive-level dashboards created in their Sales Cloud platform. They also needed to gain insight into gross margins, and have the ability to review estimated and actual project hours.
Resolution Road Map
Following a thorough discovery of the enhancements ESI required, AdVic’s Salesforce consultants created a technical road map and implemented customizations that delivered actionable data.
First, a custom Quarterly Revenue object was built. It contained roll-up summary fields, formulas, and custom fields for calculating project hours and margins. Then, connecting the Quarterly Revenue object with Opportunities provided executives with a 360-degree view to determining project viability and ROI. This connection enables them to efficiently manage the business, effectively allocate teams, and increase profits.
Secondly, validation rules were developed to execute at project initiation. This ensured that data entered falls within ranges maintaining KPI integrity so business decisions are based on sound data. Custom Opportunity rollup fields were created along with Submission Stage validation rules to ensure needed data was populated prior to stage advancement.
And lastly, executive-level custom Reports and Dashboards were developed. These provided key data insights, including project hours, opportunity viability, projected, and actual revenue and more for effective budget management.
