Salesforce Debuts Accelerator Program to Help Partners Rapidly Scale

Salesforce recently launched a new accelerator program, called Vector, designed to help companies in the partner ecosystem dramatically scale their go-to-market motion with Salesforce.  

Why it matters: Over 60% of Salesforce customers rely on Salesforce consulting partners to help them realize the ROI on their Salesforce technology purchase. The Vector program provides critical advice and coaching to help partners rethink their business and how they go to market with Salesforce. The program includes support in areas such as white space identification, sales and account alignment, interdependencies in the selling process, and industry/cloud specialization, in a highly accelerated and concentrated timeframe.

Since its inception, Vector has been focused on speed to value. Elevating the GTM collaboration (via co-selling) enables account alignment and leading with customer success, which ultimately increases our win probability.
