Company leverages the Force.com platform to integrate with back-end SAP system, creating a central
point of access for key business data
- Salesforce.com [NYSE:
CRM], the enterprise cloud computing company, today announced that Fujitsu Network Communications,
a leading supplier of IT and wireline/wireless networking solutions, has improved its sales
operations with Salesforce CRM. Fujitsu is using Salesforce CRM for tracking customer accounts,
order management and sales forecasting. The company also leveraged the Force.com platform to
integrate Salesforce CRM with its back-end SAP system, providing access to key business data. As a
result, Salesforce CRM helps increase the efficiency and productivity of the sales team, and gives
management the insight needed to make more strategic business decisions.
Fujitsu Network Communications is one of the 51,800 companies of all sizes, industries and
geographies that comprised the salesforce.com customer base as of October 31, 2008. Revenue and
subscribers will be recognized as the service is delivered.
"Over the years, we've tried a number of CRM applications. Our sales teams always complained
they were cumbersome to use and not really helpful," said Jeff Meier, vice president of information
technology at Fujitsu Network Communications Inc. "Since implementing Salesforce CRM, we've been
pleased with the adoption rates and positive comments - everyone from field sales to upper
management is happy about how it helps them do their jobs better."
The company turned to Salesforce CRM for its rich feature set and the ease with which a
solution can be integrated and customized. It took just a few months to get Salesforce CRM
deployed, integrated and customized to Fujitsu's exact specifications.
"Salesforce CRM has proven to be so successful that we're looking to roll it out to other
Fujitsu companies," added Meier. "Our executives are excited about using Salesforce CRM to pull all
of our various business data into a single application, so we have a complete, 360-degree view of
global operations. We have big plans for Salesforce CRM."
