I live in Montana and am a Salesforce Partner.

Currently, I've been working at a specialty door manufacturing company for almost 10 years. During the last 3 years, I championed to employ Salesforce to help us manage our national sales reps, improve communication, and gain better insight to our sales pipeline.

We initially started out the configuration of our Salesforce instance with the aid of third party consulting services. However, that experience was less then stellar, and I had to redesign our entire implementation. Doing so has given me an understanding of all the aspects of configuring a Salesforce instance, training company workflow processes, and supportive motivation for a better user adoption.

Along the way, I was able to attend a Saleforce Admin training class. There I picked up some configuration work for another company out of New York and got to play the role of a Salesforce consultant.

I would love the opportunity to work with a professional consulting firm.

Please contact me if the position is still open.

Can you please provide me with your contact information?
Regards, Kristine

I sent you a PM.
