A Unique Organization
ComplianceQuest has developed an Enterprise Quality Management System that is built on modern cloud architecture and addresses present-day and emerging quality and compliance business challenges. The organization made a decision to use Salesforce Cloud to leverage everything the Salesforce Business platform provides today and in the future, as well as tapping into the Salesforce ecosystem, such as third-party AppExhange solutions easily integrated since they are also built on Salesforce. Salesforce itself is also becoming a more standard platform within many companies and hence IT is looking at other Salesforce apps available to extend the value of their investment and reduce overall IT footprint. This modern cloud experience means a reduction in management of modular licenses and versions and simplifies IT issues surrounding software management. Using the cloud, customers will always have the most updated version of the software platform. Additionally, since the business application platform is continued to be innovated and managed by Salesforce, this allows ComplianceQuest to drive more innovation into its own solutions. Because of the ease of development, ComplianceQuest can quickly create fully working prototypes, new features or customer specific capabilities to address new market or customer requirements and turn them into final production solutions.
Tackling Patchy Roads
The initial challenge faced by ComplianceQuest was the adaption of modern cloud technology especially those built on a cloud business platform like Salesforce. However, the Salesforce approach for a 100% modern cloud infrastructure and all its business platform benefits made it easy for ComplianceQuest to focus solely on its own solution innovation to create a platform with the breadth and depth of functionality manufacturing companies need today. Adding to all these, recent years has seen rapid advancement in connectivity, mobility, analytics, scalability, and big data – what the industry fondly calls as the Industrial revolution or Industry 4.0. This digital transformation in manufacturing helped quality leaders with solutions like quality management at an enterprise-level to improve both revenue and bottom line efficiency. Companies like ComplianceQuest that made the initial decision to adopt modern cloud architecture platform, such as Salesforce, can take advantage of the latest and future technology advancements such as Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Smart Connectivity, and Collaboration throughout the entire product value chain.
Lastly, as a growing company in a modern cloud world, gaining visibility and creating customer value is necessary to aid the company’s growth. By leveraging the Salesforce ecosystem, ComplianceQuest has built relationships with other critical application vendors, such as ERP, channel and system integrator partners to create a global network delivering comprehensive capabilities and a differentiated value in the market.
