null

Dublin: X, X April, 2009: Saaspoint, the cloud computing consultancy and integrator, today announced it won the Salesforce.com Foundation Power of Us award. The award is given to saleforce.com’s corporate partners as recognition for their contribution to non-profit organisations.

“Saaspoint was nominated for the award by the Salesforce.com Foundation for their overall commitment to working with non-profit organisations,” commented Tim Knight, TITLE, salesforce.com. “In particular for their collaboration with Volunteer Centre Ireland (VCI) was outstanding”

Saaspoint created a Web-to-X programme for the VCI. Web-to-X creates automated integration between the VCI website and Force.com so that any requests related to volunteering that are sent to the VCI are automatically updated on Force.com. The programme greatly reduces the time spent manually updating data.

“We are delighted to win the Power of Us award,” said Colm Mulcahy, CEO, Saaspoint Ltd. “Saaspoint’s Web-to-X allows businesses to integrate their website with anything on the Force.com platform. In times like these when efficiency is everything it means that the user will not have to spend as much time on administration.”

“Saaspoint made the 1% model part of their corporate cultural, enabling their staff to work with the non-profits organisations that they care about,” continued Tim Knight.

The Salesforce Foundation 1% model requires that partners donate 1% of their equity, product or time to the communities in which they live to increase the effectiveness of non-profit organisations so they can better achieve their goals.
