Your Salesforce Lightning Experience Rollout is the opportunity to make your business the best ever
Lightning becomes default with the Salesforce Winter ‘20 release. This is the time to make step change in the way you use Salesforce and make it deliver far more to your business. Whether you use Salesforce for CRM, sales, service, marketing or as a platform or product, the ten months from now until Oct 2019 count: this is the time to tackle the areas of Salesforce you’ve been avoiding. It’s all good. But you need to start now.
Does the following sound like a familiar story?
You’ve been paying your Salesforce licence fees for a while. Over the years you’ve introduced a fair amount of complexity to your Salesforce setup in order to get the system to deliver what you need for your organisation. You may have worked with a partner if your requirements were particularly bespoke – possibly even involving some custom code.
Over time, although your system is pretty fit for purpose (and you really do know your way around it) you’ve become increasingly aware that some elements of your setup could be improved. Some of the functionality you rely on in Salesforce will have been superseded by better, more efficient alternatives with more recent platform releases. Indeed, you might have changed your business focus and/ or processes and not brought Salesforce along with you.
The problem is, when is it a good time to tackle these issues? Re-educating your users on new functionality is time consuming, and of course there is a cost of bringing in outside expertise.
Salesforce Lightning Experience: It’s good news
There is now a compelling event for you to address these issues and it’s coming in October 2019 in the form of the Salesforce Winter ‘20 Salesforce release: From this point on, all Salesforce orgs will default to Salesforce Lightning.*
Ok, so you can switch back to Classic, manually. However, we would urge you not to miss this opportunity to use this critical update to leverage the buy-in you need in your organisation to make the Salesforce platform the best business system you can have.
