Why Salesforce Managed Services is an Admin’s Best Friend

By Janel Bromberek 06.18.20

Do you have a work BFF that you rely on day in and day out? A trusted friend that you can go to for advice and guidance? Think of Salesforce Managed Services as just that! 

Your new Salesforce BFF will get you to take a step back and ask yourself the hard-hitting questions like, “Do I have all the skills I need to successfully implement Salesforce initiatives for the short and long-term?”

If you haven’t, take a moment to think about that vision. Do you have the resources and knowledge base on your internal Salesforce Admin team to accomplish the entire roadmap? Can you think of a specialized resource or two that you would only need to utilize for a short time?

It’s likely, and completely normal, to have gaps in skills. Especially if you’re an admin team of one.

What you need, when you need it

Consistently looking at the Salesforce roadmap to determine what resources you need and when you need them should always be top of mind for a Salesforce Admin. It’s a task that is daunting and overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be! Leveraging a managed services team like Navigator from Silverline, can help well… manage your more daunting tasks.

As part of Navigator, Silverline’s goal is to act as a trusted advisor and strategic partner to ensure you not only see a quick ROI from your Salesforce Org, but ensure that you can trust the data and dashboards within your Salesforce instance. 

Managed Services is a Salesforce Admin’s BFF because it’s like budgeting for a single team member to be onboarded but reaping the rewards of an entire highly skilled team that can be flexible in the resources available. Need a Marketing Automation Specialist for 10 hours of work? No problem! Resources can easily be rolled on and off your team on an as-needed basis.

That’s what friends are for

Just like an IRL BFF, a Managed Services team is there to help you with whatever you need, whenever you need it. And a Managed Services team has one goal — to help you do and be better.

Better Together

There is strength in numbers! Come to your executive team with a plan to take the budget slated to hire one in-house specialist and turn it into a team of Salesforce experts that can not only provide technical support but also strategic planning. Why choose the knowledge of one over many?

Always Learning

You don’t know what you don’t know! Partnering with a team of Salesforce experts allows you to learn and be thoughtful about changes, backlog, and initiatives that arise as you maintain a Salesforce instance. 

Peace of Mind

The Managed Services team at Silverline can show value to all of your internal stakeholders.

  • The IT department can get the most out of their budget by augmenting your existing Salesforce talent and minimizing the need for expensive, specialized skills in-house.
  • The executive and leadership teams will see value as they will be able to plan ahead and use the Salesforce platform to accomplish key initiatives. Ensuring your executive and leadership teams have access to strategists and change management specialists will be a game-changer for the business. 
  • The sales and operations teams will see effective growth as the Navigator team recommends best practices and assistance in itemizing and prioritizing requirements. Leveraging additional Salesforce functionality and planning for Salesforce governance will provide a solid and inclusive partnership that will result in visible ROI.
