[ZynCast Video Interview] Allied Building Products Is Mastering Salesforce Adoption From the Inbox

25 October 2016 Amy Green Salesforce, CRM Admin, CRM Adoption

According to Salesforce.com “CRM systems are too often conceived and implemented with little or no consideration given to how sales reps will use them, much less how they could be configured to deliver the kind of value that would encourage reps to use them.”

ZynBit sat down to chat with the Manager of Employee Development with Allied Building Products, A Division of Oldcastle. Allied Building Products is a building materials distributor in the residential and commercial building industry with locations nationwide. Today Allied operates over 200 locations, maintains a fleet of over 2,785 vehicles and employs over 3,100 people.

Allied has set achievable goals to be at 80% adoption of Salesforce by the end of 2016! The previous goal before implementing the right CRM tools was 40-60% adoption. So having ZynBit allowed Allied to set the bar high and double their adoption rate!

“The CRM solution was something brand new to Allied. Our users are not used to doing typical CRM activities like logging calls,  documenting info, or creating contacts.We use Gmail and we wanted to make sure we had a seamless integration to Salesforce and Gmail so we didn’t have to do double work.”

– Vinnie DiSalvo, Manager of Employee Development at Allied Building Products
