UMASS Amherst IT Revises Data Architecture to Transform Marketing and Reporting

3:15 pm -3:45 pm (Room 302) After a year of using their Salesforce org to manage thousands of prospects coming to various programs, UMass Amherst realized its marketing channels were limited, communications were too general and reporting labor-intensive. Working with a Salesforce CSA, UMass Amherst revised its data architecture, reduced the number of custom objects, leveraged the Opportunities object, and are in the process of adding Ultra Easy to manage applications. The result is a clear view of the marketing funnel, more sophisticated and nimble communications with prospects, useful and functional reports and dashboards so Program Specialists can prioritize their daily work, and more automated tasks which reduce hours spent on manual work, including report building and one-off email sends. Join this presentation to hear UMass Amherst:
    ● Lessons learned from our initial build ● Critical changes to the Org ● Specific gains from the re-architecture ● Examples of improvement ● Benefits from a staffing perspective ● Testimonials from Program Specialists working with Prospects
