Experience

  • Salesforce CPQ Update

    The client's CPQ instance had not been updated for several releases. Here, we updated and tested the CPQ to make sure the client can use the current version and latest CPQ Features. This Salesforce organization dated back to 2004; as such, they used a lot of Apex code for their subscription business model. This model needed to be tested for compatibility with the new CPQ release or replaced with Salesforce Workflow, Process Builder, or Flows to take advantage of Salesforce's most recent CPQ releases.
