Have you nominated your company in the FinancialForce 360 Customer Excellence Awards yet? As part of our 2015 Community Day activities, the awards recognize outstanding FinancialForce customer achievements across all of our products. The 360s serve as an incredible opportunity for customers to not only share their stories of ERP success but to also get promoted as a leader within the Salesforce and FinancialForce.com communities. So what are you waiting for?
One of last year’s participants Michael Richardson, CIO of Milrose Consultants recalled how winning the 2014 “Business Breakthrough of The Year” Award validated the company’s hard work and future business goals:
“Winning this award in 2014 was the culmination of a determined and enthusiastic Business Transformation mission spanning all of Milrose. The objectives of this effort became the mantra of Milrose from the start – right through the moment that we stood on the platform and accepted this award. I recall when we attended our first FinancialForce Customer Day event in SFO, in 2013. I turned to our Controller sitting next to me and whispered “We need to WIN this award next year when our amazing Milrose-WAVE Solution has been developed and launched into Production!” – and we did. VERY gratifying for me and the entire executive team that had so much time, energy and optimism invested in this massive initiative.
The positive PR that Milrose was able to generate amongst our customer base was important.
Internally, the employee morale and improved recognition of the importance and significance of what we’d accomplished was palpable and valued.
The notoriety which this award gave our Finance department within the company was also beneficial. It gave our CFO, Controller and others the opportunity to highlight and share some of the new automation and client-facing improvements.
The tech/software industry gave us a highly credible pat on the back for a job well done, and that felt very good!”
