Event Bridge – gaining traction

I recently went to an event where the communication was appalling!

There were baggage checks that were only disclosed when you got the the front of the hour-long queue.

There was no program.

Even after I had left, a quarter of the way through in frustration… I was still receiving emails as if I were there.

This was at a big event, in a prestigious location. It left me feeling as if I were being treated like cattle.

Cattle penned and uncared for

How about, they had linked up their ticketing system to their messaging system? So that based on my attendance they could send me different messages?

It’s not only possible, it is inexpensive and easy!

Our Event Bridge solution does it quickly and easily. We can have you set up in an hour. Your attendance data in Eventbrite will seamlessly come over into your Salesforce account. It’s so easy!

Why not call for a demonstration? or check out our dedicated website on Event Bridge.

Not only will it give you the ability to treat your customers like royalty, it will also help you gain a profile of their attendance over time, it also cleans the data!

Breadwinner delivers Salesforce integration for Netsuite

Back in 2015, I wrote a short article about Breadwinner and how this amazing product was integrating all of our Xero accounts into Salesforce. It seems to have made our lives so easy for so long. All our contacts in our accounting software match up EXACTLY with our Salesforce contacts. In that time it has been great to see Breadwinner continue to develop and add new features. At the time I said that Breadwinner was so good that it was a reason to purchase Salesforce.

If you were a Netsuite user, you had no such luck. You were left out in the cold with not proper 2-way integrations between your accounts/ERP and your Salesforce. Similarly, getting information from your Stripe account into Salesforce was ‘difficult’.

TODAY, I have heard that all that has changed.

Breadwinner is also launching integrations to connect Salesforce to Stripe, and another one to integrate Netsuite with Salesforce.

Breadwinner has brought out an integration for Netsuite. That has to be big news – your CRM and your Accounts/ERP package talking to each other. Using all the power of Salesforce reporting to give a real insight into how your business is doing.

Stripe talking with your Salesforce has to be big news, too! (But I am still more excited by the Netsuite news.)

So, what are you waiting for? I have always found Breadwinner to be super helpful, so why not find out more from the links.

 Salesforce to Stripe, and integrate Netsuite with Salesforce.

Happy Christmas… a time for rest?

Wishing everyone a joyous time of year, whether that is Channukah, Christmas, Diwali, Yule or whatever is special to you and those whom you love.

You have probably taken the time to put your feet up… but will your customers?

Many people will be bored on Christmas and start playing with their iPads, iPhones or the old desktop computer lurking in the corner. In other words, just because you have a holiday doesn’t mean that your customers and potential customers do. So make sure they have something to do!

What better than to have them spending money on your Ecommerce website – even better if they are using gift tokens that a friend or relative has bought for them. They can find out if Apple Pay or Google Pay really works on their new devices.

So, happy festivals, may you have lots of rest and a prosperous new year. (While your website works for you in the background.)

All the best,

Delivering the Fastest in Web Servers

In the world of websites, fast is king.

Why?

If it isn’t fast you:

  1. Lose visitors
  2. Get down-ranked by Google
  3. Are tedious to navigate
  4. Risk losing sales opportunities

So, Cloud Genius is very proud to be able to announce that our top tier of web servers are:

  1. Super fast – they use SSDs instead of old hard disks
  2. Use super-fast networking
  3. Now use the HTTP/2 protocol, which is far faster than the old HTTP protocol
  4. Have the option of using StackPath content delivery networks for global reach. (Great if you have an international market.)

If you want the very best in website hosting, come to us.

Working with the best Charities and Salesforce

Has your synchronisation between Salesforce and Eventbrite been abandoned? 

Occasionally, we have to claim our bragging rights. We do a lot of work with charities – more than 50% of our Salesforce work is with charities, but it is not all directly with Salesforce.

We (safely) unleash data you hold in one system and move it over to another system controlled by you.

What is the benefit?

Well suppose you have lots of events running on Eventbrite and you want to grab that data and put it in your Salesforce org.

In other words, you have lots of people who are interested in you and your products – they have attended your events – and you want to convert them into customers. Their data is TRAPPED in one system (in this case Eventbrite). You need it in Salesforce so that you can put it to work.

There are a number of ways of doing this. Most of them are half-hearted. A year or two after they have been written, they are abandoned. We are able to do reliable, repeatable synchronisations. Our tools are never ‘abandon-ware’.

Our Eventbridge has been continually developed over four years, through API and data requirement changes.

It has allowed our clients to revolutionise their conversions. It could for you.
