    23. 23. Go Live April 2 nd - Don’t try this at home…. It’s amazing how a bottle of Veuve Clicquot can make you forget that the SFDC implementation gave you shingles from stress
    24. 24. Moment of Truth…User feedback 1. Ease of use, very intuitive. 2. Account focus vs. the location – somewhat forces collaboration. 3. Ultimate integration to SAP and Outlook --------- This is the best overall sales tool i've seen at CA in the 6 years i've been here. --------- Better than Excel spreadsheets. Better than data entry in multiple places. Just better. I believe both the ADs / AMs and their managers are going to be very happy. Thank you! --------- It was a pleasure to work with Celia and her team. The solution is great and I look forward to using it!    
