What does “success” mean to you?

Maybe it's overcoming a certain challenge. It could be helping your team be more productive or improving operations. Success might mean leaping ahead of your competitors or completely transforming your organization.

At Salesforce, we know success looks different for every one of our customers. You're blazing a trail that's unique, but you don't have to blaze it alone.

Salesforce has always been a leader in helping our customers succeed. I know of no other company that's as committed to customer success as Salesforce. In 1999, we pioneered the concept of the Customer Success Manager — in fact, our very first Success Manager was Marc Benioff! He would talk with customers to understand what they needed to be successful. Since then, we've found new ways to help our customers achieve their ambitions.

You can also work alongside our experts. Our advisory services match you with Salesforce Architects and experience design experts. They'll share their knowledge and our unique approach to customer success.

For example, Vodafone wanted to gain a complete view of its global opportunity pipeline while ensuring that their customers had a consistent experience. Vodafone brought on Salesforce Advisory Services as an essential partner to achieve this transformative endeavor.

“We look at our Program Architect as a constant source of advice, design and architectural input, as well as an effective problem solver. Our advisor is the go-to guy for all things Salesforce adds.” --Christian Tchatchouang, Head of SELL Domain Delivery at Vodafone
