What is Salesforce Managed Services?
Here at Cirrius Solutions, we value the success of our clients. We ensure this success by taking various action steps, including optimizing workflows, and building effective management systems, all through providing excellent customer service support and beyond. Salesforce Managed Services is one of the key resources we offer to ensure our customers’ ongoing success.
Salesforce Managed Services is a team of Salesforce specialists dedicated to providing and managing a customized set of assistance based on each organization’s specialized needs. Our team here at Cirrius Solutions allows businesses to remain proactive in managing their Salesforce CRM in a cost-effective, flexible way and does not require hiring additional employees. It assists in preventing system issues from occurring and fine-tuning the overall performance of the Salesforce CRM, as well as connecting information from all stakeholders of an organization to one shared set of experts. Most importantly, Salesforce Managed Services allows businesses to focus on the important goods and services they offer while leaving behind-the-scenes work, such as security checks, day-to-day updates, and other administrative tasks, to the Managed Services.

Is Salesforce Managed Services Right for Your Business?
While there are some alternatives to utilizing Salesforce Managed Services, they do not offer the economic, flexibility, and proactivity benefits that Salesforce Managed Services offers from Cirrius Solutions. For example, some organizations opt to employ a full-time Salesforce administrator, leaving all of their Salesforce needs to this one individual. While this strategy can be effective for some businesses, issues may arise when that singular employee is home sick and unavailable for a few days, goes on vacation for a couple of weeks, or even ceases their employment with an organization entirely. Any of these instances could leave an organization without a professional to manage and maintain all of the services offered by Salesforce, as this most often requires specialized Salesforce experts. Other organizations may opt to hire an outside vendor when something goes awry, which is a responsive action instead of a proactive one. This method can take a significant amount of time for a vendor to respond and provide their services, leaving the organization without the necessary resources for an extended period of time. Another common action for businesses is relying on their internal IT personnel to manage all of their Salesforce needs. While this is the most cost-effective option, it is often quite ineffective, as general IT management skills are insufficient in best-managing Salesforce and reaping the highest benefits possible from the resources it offers. Significant risks come with each alternative option to having Salesforce Managed Services, and they can be the difference between a business thriving and a business suffering lethal deficits.
