After my last post, I got a note from Kevin Roberts, our VP Business Development in the US:
“Yes, the ‘Tour de Force’ salesforce.com roadshow commenced last week with events in Atlanta and Chicago and we were there. At both events, there was a packed audience (standing room only!) at the keynote presentations by Marc Benioff and Polly Sumner of salesforce.com, where CODA’s Jeremy Roche discussed the benefits of the Force.com platform for professional developers and ISVs. Salesforce.com’s Adam Gross conducted a live demonstration of a pre-release version of CODA2go on stage on our behalf, where he walked through the order-to-cash process showing all the neat features we’ve been building into the software.
CODA also had a stand in the ‘Developer Zone’ where attendees could see close up a pre-release version of CODA2go in action and chat with Jeremy, Steve Pugh and myself. Huge interest and genuine excitement from analysts, potential partners, existing salesforce.com customers and companies large and small.
We’re expecting an even larger turnout this week in New York (Wednesday 16th) before we visit Boston on April 22nd.”
