Over the last five years, Salesforce.com has become very complex to successfully implement and manage.
However, the basic CRM (Customer Relationship Management) System is still very easy to just turn on with their standard configuration and start working. It's quick, not too painful and many companies just do that.
Unfortunately, the standard process, forms and reports very often don't match what the company sales team really needs to be productive... and over time, sales people stop using parts of the system, the customer database gets very dirty with lots of duplicates and bad customer data, and sales managers go back to using spreadsheets to prepare their forecasts, usually over the weekends.
Salesforce is continuously improving and new features and functions get added every quarter. If your team don't learn the current features, it's hard to learn the new ones. So... you need to provide continuous education to your existing people to improve productivity and sales results.
Top Salesforce Administrators and Sales Professionals are in very high demand, they’re hard to find and very hard to keep. Providing continuous training is one of the top priorities of these people.
