From our experience, we have identified five common errors that can affect the success of the implementation.
Error #1: Lack of Planning
A successful Salesforce implementation requires solid planning. Many companies make the mistake of underestimating the importance of planning and end up with a disorganized and chaotic implementation. To avoid this error, make sure to have a solid plan before starting the implementation.
Error #2: Weak Training
Another common error is not providing sufficient training to Salesforce users. It’s important for users to understand how to use the platform and how it can help them in their daily work. To avoid this error, make sure to provide sufficient training and support to Salesforce users. There are many resources provided by Salesforce and Skyblux that are highly beneficial in ensuring the success of an implementation.
Error #3: Excessive Customization
While Salesforce is highly customizable, many companies make the mistake of over-customizing it. Excessive customization can complicate the use of the platform and make it difficult for the organization to adopt new processes. To avoid this error, make sure to balance customization with simplicity and usability, adopting the best practices already incorporated in Salesforce processes.
Error #4: Lack of Integration
Another common error is not integrating Salesforce with other business tools. The lack of integration can limit the effectiveness of Salesforce and its ability to provide a complete view of business operations. To avoid this error, make sure to integrate Salesforce with other business tools.
Error #5: Not Considering the Organizational Cultural Change
Finally, many companies underestimate the importance of cultural change in Salesforce implementation. Implementing Salesforce involves not only technological change but also a change in organizational culture. To avoid this error, make sure to involve employees in the implementation process, communicate the implemented changes well in advance, and provide continuous support during the transition.If you’re planning to implement Salesforce in your company, make sure to avoid these common errors.
