Traction on Demand and FinancialForce.com sign multi-year partnership agreement just in time for Dreamforce 2015
BURNABY, BC – September 15th, 2015 – Traction on Demand announced Tuesday that they’ve entered into a multi-year technology partnership with FinancialForce.com, the #1 cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform in the Salesforce.com ecosystem. By signing the agreement, Traction will officially be adding the first ERP solution to their ‘Perfect Stack’ – a select group of best-of-breed technologies that they implement, integrate and recommend for customers. The Perfect Stack also represents the applications and technologies that Traction uses to support their own professional services operations.
Greg Malpass, Traction’s Founder & CEO is excited to expand the Perfect Stack with a rapidly growing and respected platform. “Traction takes partnerships seriously. We pride ourselves not only on selecting best-of-breed technologies but best-of-breed organizations to partner with. Being a professional services firm that has experienced incredible growth over the last few years, we stepped back and carefully considered our options. Build or buy. The decision to partner with FinancialForce.com and implement their PSA offering ourselves, is a strong testament to the impact we believe it will have on our business and our customer’s.”
“We are thrilled to officially announce a partnership with Traction on Demand and are looking forward to working closely with them moving forward,” said Jeremy Roche, CEO of FinancialForce.com. “Given Traction’s position as a leading Salesforce systems integrator, this relationship provides our companies with an incredible opportunity to open up new revenue streams and expand our presence within the Salesforce customer base in both Canada and the US.”
The first initiative to stem from the partnership will be for Traction to implement the technology internally. “The best way to understand and appreciate a technology is to use it yourself.” Says Traction VP of Alliances, Chris Peacock, “Traction’s approach to partnerships and technology adoption is to first understand how the application functions and then the learn how to bend and extend it to work in ways that no one else has considered,” Peacock adds.
“We look forward to not only being a FinancialForce.com customer, but a contributing member of the ecosystem and providing expert services and product extensions on the platform,” says Malpass.
