The advent of process automation in the enterprise landscape has made managing large volumes of information easier and more accurate. In the age of data-driven decision-making, automation has helped organizations to deliver personalized services to keep customers satisfied and involved in every interaction. Knowing the importance of automation for businesses in the long run, Conga ventured out on a mission to create document automation for the Sales force platform.
The company’s flagship product, Conga Composer, has paved the way for Conga to rapidly transform organizations with fast, flexible and accurate utilization of Sales force data. Ken Cavallon, Vice President, Conga points out, “Conga was born on the Salesforce App Exchange from the very beginning. ”Being an integral part of the Sales force ecosystem since 2006, Conga is able to automate the document generation processes, ensure easy production of enterprise-grade documents, presentations and reports while leveraging all the data within Salesforce. In the initial days, when the market for Salesforce was completely naïve, Conga created the best tools for customers to optimize the Salesforce experience. Today, with the popularity of Salesforce reaching new heights, Conga's vision of becoming a trendsetter in the industry has only become stronger.
The Conga Platform - Simplifying Data, Documents, Contracts and Reporting
Owing to its innovative and proven efficiency, Composer is now the #1 paid-for app on the Salesforce App Exchange. Ken emphasizes, “Composer is unique because it is the easiest to deploy and easiest to use by both Salesforce administrators, as well as their end-users.” As Conga has grown, the Conga plat form has evolved to automate the full sales execution continuum from Lead-to-Cash, offering a unique competitive advantage to businesses from pre to post sale. For Salesforce users who want to optimize their CRM investment and accelerate their sales cycle, Conga solutions remove non-revenue generating activities by automating documents, workflows and reporting and simplifying data management.
With the recent acquisition of ActionGrid, Conga’s suite of products has expanded into robust data management making it easier for users to enter and manage data. With the right set of data at their disposal, organizations have real-time visibility into their business.“Data management was a natural addition to the Conga platform,” explains Ken. “Entering and updating data in Salesforce takes an inordinate amount of time away from sales teams, and ultimately if the data is good, so is the document.”
Conga’s platform, which also includes contract management and reporting solutions, have allowed customers to dynamically manage document content in an efficient, effective, and profitable manner. Ken says, “Our core competency lies in being 100 percent focused on Salesforce solutions.” Ten years and more than 600 5-star reviews later, Conga has built its reputation on the Salesforce App Exchange as much for its highly skilled group of Sales Cloud professionals as for its products.
Combining its highly skilled team and its breath of experience as a Salesforce expert, Conga is perfectly positioned to harness Salesforce’s multilingual, multi currency, multi text platform capabilities delivered to customers around the globe.
