About Gary and Robochimp technology
Gary is the founder of Robochimp Technology, a team of expert Salesforce developers, admins and consultants based in Orange County and San Diego. Their specialty lies in their quality work and reasonable prices as compared to the large consultancies. Prior to starting Robochimp, he served as CTO for an insurance agency where they decided to go with Salesforce due to its ability to customize a CRM at a reduced cost. That’s when he fell in love with Salesforce due to it being more like a toolbox than a CRM which handles user permissions, security, updates etc without having to lean on developers.
How customizable is Salesforce in having buyer and seller engagement
Salesforce enables powerful customization that can benefit home buyers and sellers. It allows for customers to have portals that they can log into to check the status of their process, such as a home purchase or insurance policy. To get the most out of Salesforce, it is important to focus on what objectives you are trying to accomplish.
How can Salesforce help real estate teams
Salesforce is a powerful solution for improving the buyer and seller experience in the real estate space, as it can unify different systems into one source of truth. Its API layer enables the integration of all these disparate systems, which helps facilitate automation processes that make tasks more efficient. The technology layer under Salesforce also helps set up automated responses and meeting requests with clients for better communication.
What is the difference of using salesforce and other CRMs
Salesforce provides users with the ability to collect and customize data over time. Clients can use this data to track referral business and revenue in real-time. The platform is highly customizable, allowing users to tailor their day-to-day workflows.
What makes a successful Salesforce implementation
Planning is the key part of a successful implementation in a CRM system. He mentioned. To ensure user adoption, it's important to involve stakeholders, departments and users in the process of improving their CRM experience. It's beneficial to limit what views each role has access to so that they are not caught up in data that's not relevant to their day-to-day workflows.
Quality data is essential for making decisions and automating processes, which makes life easier for users.
How to avoid common Salesforce pitfalls
The "pitfalls to look out for" when implementing a highly customizable system include not planning well, poor user adoption, and over complexity. To have good results and quick ROI, there needs to be someone on the team willing to think through these things and break them down into smaller parts. User adoption can be driven by making changes based on feedback and building the system in a way that is easier for users.
