Migrating From Salesforce.com to Oracle CRM On Demand


Published on

This presentation provides an overview of the CRM On Demand implementation I worked on at KBACE Technologies.

Oracle CRM On Demand is a comprehensive solution for sales, marketing, and service initiatives that can be implemented quickly and comes with pre-built analytics and integration to the Oracle E-Business Suite.

By leveraging the Software-as-a-Service platform, we were able to get up and running on CRM On Demand in 4 weeks.
