Data to SFDC The data is supported by IT and will have a refresh schedule. Include sources and functionability in small steps Still working out some bugs Duplicate data to BizView (two way data transfer – improves reporting) 2011 starting to integrate SFDC with ATR.
New Sources Salesforce.com now includes a list of all BGA aircraft globally searchable by Tail or Serial Number (etc.) Data now shown on a tail/serial number level are: Aircraft configurations From Jetnet From the EMEAI Channel Partner Forecast process From the RMU Mapper Services MSP Contract Information Happ Contract Information GDC subscriber information RMU Mapper Platforms Sales Regions Go to the “documents” tab to view additional SFDC training material. (Link)
Static Platform Data vs. Tail Level Data Both have configuration (flight deck etc.) data, so be aware of the difference
“Aircrafts (Customer Fleet)” refers to the aircraft by serial number/tail.
Aircraft by Tail Examples: Engine Services Configuration Opportunities More information on what data is under the tail level go to the SFDC FAQ here. (Question 11) Where possible all opportunities should be tied to a tail in SFDC!
Aircraft by Tail HAPP/MSP Each aircraft now has its MSP/HAPP contracts attached. 40+ Sources incorporated in SFDC
Easily seen at aircraft level:
Data uploaded directly from card readers Customize any card reader to upload a business card directly to contacts/opportunities in SFDC Every field customizable. We use this for trade shows, but can also be used for surveys, emails etc. from almost any scanner. 40+ Sources incorporated in SFDC
Loading SFDC data into Google Maps Create a report Export Upload to Google Maps Map: Accounts Aircraft ASM Regions (based on real data) Easily identify data issues in SFDC e.g.: easily see an aircraft under the wrong ASM or country.
Console Description: The Console allows you to see a list, an item from that list and its related data all on one screen. Example: A list of all aircraft (top) One aircraft tail number including owner, MSP/HAPP, avionics, engine, opportunities, installed RMU’s (bottom left) All related data such as contacts, possible RMU’s, other aircraft in owner’s fleet etc. (bottom right) Same goes for regions, aircraft platforms, RMU’s etc.
Console Choose what to view (Regions, RMU’s, Aircraft, Accounts, etc.) You see the master list SFDC has, the detail of one chosen item from the list and the related data of that item all at the same time. More detailed overview of how to get into the console and its uses is in the SFDC training documents here. Go to the “documents” tab to view additional SFDC training material. (Link)
Aircraft by Tail HAPP/MSP Happ and MSP are also visible with the SFDC Console. Go to the “documents” tab to view additional SFDC training material. (Link)
AC Platform See all RMU’s available for the AC
Sales Regions See all AC and Operators etc. in a region/country/state
Sales Regions See all AC and Operators etc. in a region/country/state
Easy Updates and Communications via Chatter Similar idea of Facebook and Twitter
Easy Updates and Communications via Chatter Add notes to any Opportunity, user, account etc. The owner of that account etc. gets an email with a direct link. Communicate directly through SFDC and share data in SFDC easier. Follow other’s updates similar to facebook/twitter. IE 7 or above required. Track whatever you want and add notes
Channel Partner Forecasts/Proposals Proposals are now generated from SFDC opportunities and better configuration data is gathered from this process. See the whole step by step process here. The Proposal is generated directly from the opportunity (all data does not need to be re-entered)
RMU Mapper Viewing possible aftermarket opportunities by Platform
RMU Mapper Retrofits, Modifications, Upgrades mapped to available aircraft platforms. View everything that can go on a platform or view all platforms a product can go on. Console View Platform View
Salesforce and ExactTarget Tracking emails using data from SFDC
ExactTarget and Salesforce.com Use a report directly from salesforce.com to send out a mass email in ExactTarget Automatically updates salesforce.com as replies are received. Cuts steps for organizing and tracking campaigns
Easy Account Management/Assignement Easily Assign a whole Region, Country/ies, State or Airport (in case state is split) in a few clicks. This will assign everything under it to the chosen ASM: Accounts, Aircraft, Airports etc. (not opportunities)
Additional Owners of the Aircraft You can now associate more than one company with an aircraft (like with JetNet.) Includes MSP Contract owners, etc. Now a “many-to-many” relationship.
Adding installed RMU’s clicking on “New Installed Aircraft RMU” will now bring up the RMU mapper. E.g. if you are looking at at a G550 (shown) it will bring up all records of RMU’s available for the G550
Opportunities now tied to aircraft Wherever possible an opportunity should be tied to an aircraft. This is important for reporting and keeping track of aircraft configurations over time. Before you close an opportunity update the aircraft’s configuration. All data should be related to aircraft to have a better overview!
Maintenance Data Predicting when an aircraft will be in the hangar
Maintenance Data to SFDC Overall Goals: Show “Next Event” date, then event 2, 3, 4, & 5 on each aircraft. Show whether Events are A, B, C or D check Show available RMU’s (from RMU mapper ) if not “installed” available for next specific type of check. ASM can hit a button to Auto create opportunity (for the a/c serial number, RMU, date etc)
Maintenance Data to SFDC Shows what RMU’s are available during which maintenance events and when the maintenance events will be. Currently under development (to show the data in a better way)
3rd Party Plugins Over 800 Applications from 450 Software vendors. (as of 2008) Connect to project management Outlook External web pages Excel Surveys Etc, etc, etc… Over 800 Applications tie into Salesforce.com
