“Having extensive experience as a Salesforce.com integration partner, I know firsthand the technical pitfalls companies face trying to implement multiple Salesforce products which often includes an extensive configuration to connect three different databases when it should be just one database. It is a huge effort when trying to connect Salesforce.com Sales Cloud with the Marketing Cloud and Pardot lead tracking,” said Buchanan, adding, “Instead of Salesforce.com’s frustrating technological deficiencies due to incompatible cloud platforms, databases, application languages, different user interfaces, subpar support and premium price tag, our customer-first approach is to provide a seamless X2CRM system with white glove service and support that works harder for companies.”
