TRACTION
“They clearly demonstrated expertise in the manufacturing industry as we overcame common CRM
manufacturing hurdles with their pre-built solution in the first meeting. Like many manufacturing
organizations experiencing growing pains, our legacy systems had become a hindrance to growth. This
solution modernized sales processes by streamlining and organizing the multiple teams in the inquire-to-
order process and reducing pricing errors. Now we’re working on the next phase.” - Elliot Bender, VP

 Non-existing quoting and custom discounting approval
process
 Custom pricing for each customer (>3000 pricebooks)
 Significant pricing errors and time & money to resolve
Project 2: Pricing Management
 Tiered Pricebooks is new process, no way to manage
changes and finding products is difficult
 Pricelist generation process is manual, slow and never in
time for pricing changes annually
 No mobile access to product and prices
Project 3: Customer Service
 No real-time access to required information to service
customers (where is my product, backlog, credit info,
allocations, etc.)
 No consolidated knowledge on servicing clients –
difficult onboard/standardize customer experience
Project 1: Quoting
 Tiered pricebook structure (<300)
 Integration for Products and Pricebooks from ERP
 SF Quotes, process tailored to construction and Account
Specific Pricing
 Approval Process for discounting and special pricing
Project 2: Pricing Management
 Integrated Pricing Tier Approvals
 Conga Merge for beautiful yet complex pricelists for various
situations
 Custom SF1 Mobile App for Account Pricing Lookups
Project 3: Customer Service

customer allocations and inventory checks
 Enhanced batch integration to provide more details on
Orders
 Service Console with custom components to tie it all together
 Decreased
pricing errors
by 3 to 5%

Stage II
Most sales

not been adopted
across the
organization
Stage III
Sales processes
have been
thoroughly adopted
by the sales team.
Formalized aspects
of the sales
process have been

implemented.
Stage IV
Sales management
relies primarily on
quantitative internal
data to manage the
sales team.
Development and
publication of
leading indicators
of sales success.
Stage V
Sales management
can sufficiently
predict sales
performance and
understand
causality. Sales
metrics of success
are captured and

Typical
Challenges
Facing
Manufacturers
• Legacy Technologies
• Legacy systems designed in the 90’s are the backbone of these
customers
• Painful and risky to replace
• Multiple, unconnected quoting and fulfillment systems (ERP’s)
• Global & More Nimble Competition
• Digital disruption and the intro of new nimble competitors
unconstrained by legacy costs and assets
• Differentiating product and maintaining brand loyalty
• Digital Disruption & Evolving Customer Expectations
• Daily consumer experiences are setting the customer expectations
• Enforcement of Compliance
• Government regulations and socially conscious buyers driving
compliance around energy, environment & safety
Process /
System
Specific
Challenges
• Missing Mobile & Connected Data
• Missing 360 degree customer and product views
• Inability to Plan & Measure
• Margins are impacted by volumes and accurate volume forecasting
and cost estimating
• Weak key account management – not evaluating white space to plan
• Complex and Inefficient Pricing & Quoting
• Complicated pricing models and contractual agreements
• Complex and changing CPQ needs to compete (legacy can’t handle)
• Customer Service Using Obsolete Systems
• Using disconnected environments for all they do
• Huge time lost just finding the right info
• Minimal Channel Visibility & Engagement
• Slow and manual lead sharing/deal registration
• No pipe/forecast visibility or collaboration
• Under-utilized and unsuccessful channel programs
Summary
• Fast and Easy to Sell
• Experienced Manufacturing Expertise – Existing Manufacturing
Customer Base
• App level value – but SF benefits from entire license revenue
• Packaged offering means reusable collateral, pricing and timelines
• Win-Win
• Win for SF: easier and faster to sell – blow your numbers away
• Win for Traction: Expand in core industry space
• Source Revenue Strategy
• Penetrate existing manufacturing customers
• Social selling Business Development
• Manufacturing CRM Website
• Manufacturing Blog Series
• Co-Marketing - Industry focused events – TractionForce 2016
• What is ForgeCRM:
• Combination of:
• Integration services to unlock backend ERP data
• A package of functionality that replaces manual processes and
mashes up Sales & Service data for high value context sensitive
actionable data in SFDC
• We open up Salesforce as an option to manufacturers by plugging the
holes it (and all CRM’s) have in their out of box processes
• What ForgeCRM is NOT:
• Cloud Based ERP (Root Stock, Kenandy, etc.)
• Only an integration to push data – whether ERP specific or not
(Mulesoft, Informatica, Inforce, etc.)
