    • 10. Life Before Intacct
      • Some processing in Salesforce
        • Opportunity “Summary” with Product line item detail reflected the potential sale
        • Custom fields for Contract Start/End by line item were used to reflect duration of the subscription sale
        • More than 49 price lists were required to reflect combinations of currency and standard discount levels
        • Salesforce mail merge routines were used to print order forms in 4 languages and per legal entity (13 separate forms)
      • Orders, invoices and revenue management processed in other systems
        • AR customers and invoices were manually loaded into QuickBooks
        • Revenue Recognition schedules (majority spread over the 12 month contract period) kept in spreadsheets
      • Resulting Issues:
        • AR customer records in QuickBooks often did not match Salesforce accounts - Potential for error in Invoice information was high
        • Tracking recurring billing arrangements manual and prone to error
        • Revenue Recognition via spreadsheets prone to potential error
        • Sales had no visibility to Order/AR status of customers

      • Ingres needed an integrated solution to the order to cash problem:
      • The IT Strategy for sourcing solutions at Ingres is “On Demand” or “Open Source”
      • Salesforce was a natural choice for a CRM solution
      • We needed a Financials/Distribution application which met our requirements and integrated to Salesforce

      • Ingres is a subscription based software and services company, requiring advanced order-to-cash processes
      • We specifically did not want to go with heavyweight applications from Oracle or SAP

      • We felt that we could help influence the direction of the product
