Verndale, a leading mid market web technology and consultancy firm, has earned the official Force.com developer certification through Salesforce.com. The Force.com developer certification confirms Verndale’s deep expertise in creating custom Force.com applications as well as customizing existing Salesforce apps.
The Force.com developer certification program focuses on customizing multiuser software-as-a-service (SaaS), modifying user interfaces, creating advanced workflows and validations, automating business processes, managing data, third party system integration and more.
“The Force.com developer certification is a big step toward ensuring that our clients are getting the very best when it comes to integrating Salesforce.com CRM solutions with their web assets,” said Matt Pisapia, COO of Verndale. “Salesforce CRM is a robust, highly scalable solution that can be easily customized to best support our clients growing business requirements,” said Pisapia.
Salesforce is not a traditional CRM software since it is web-based, which allows employees to access it from anywhere they can get an internet connection. Information on leads, customer records, reporting, and an expanding set of tools is all housed in a web browser. Salesforce also hosts the CRM platform, which relieves stress on internal servers and reduces hosting costs.
The web-based nature of the Salesforce platform is valued by Verndale, who has been integrating CRM and other Back-Office solutions with browser-based functionality for over a decade. Verndale plans to leverage its recent certification to grow its Salesforce integration department. The certification makes Verndale part of an exclusive community of Salesforce.com credentialed professionals, which many businesses interested in Salesforce integration are directed to by Salesforce representatives.
