Dreamforce 2013: Project and Work Management for Saleforce.com

With over 100,000 attendees, Dreamforce 2013 was a great event!  Held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California, EPM Live was one of the App Exchange vendors exhibiting at the Cloud Expo. The show floor was bustling with Salesforce users who were not only interested in expanding their knowledge and skills on the Salesforce platform but how they can expand their Salesforce solution into other areas of the business.  

Dreamforce 2013, better known as #DF13, was definitely a show for the records. By far the largest conference I have ever been to! Dreamforce took over the entire city of San Francisco. Attendees were easily spotted around the city with their Dreamforce backpacks and lively conversations about their experience at the conference. Their enthusiasm about the educational sessions and insightful keynotes from thought-leaders who included Salesforce Founder Marc Benioff, Yahoo! President & CEO Marissa Mayer, and Deepak Chopra, MD, Fonder of The Chopra Foundation, was evident in the Cloud Expo.

The EPM Live booth, decked out for Football season, was always busy in conversation with the Dreamforce audience. Many attendees were curious to learn more about EPM Lives’ ability to extend Project and Work Management with enhanced collaboration features directly into Salesforce. Although we know people were also excited about entering our raffle for a chance to win a $500 Official NFL Gift Basket, including game day tickets!

The EPM Live for Salesforce App brings allows executive and sales personnel to view all of their critical information from within Salesforce.com.  It provides sales teams the ability to collaborate with project teams via the cloud to bring global portfolio and project visibility, work management, and issue management to fruition.  Project teams are able to provide sales, marketing, customer success and executives with the information they need to close new business, increase customer satisfaction and fuel expansion within their pipeline.  In this process, all users are able to remain in their system of preference, working the way that makes them the most productive.
