WATERTOWN, Mass., Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- CollabFactory, a RedMetal Inc., company and provider of easy to use, highly flexible SharePoint based solutions, today announced a partnership with GMA Consulting, a London based IT consultancy specializing in collaboration, cloud and CRM solutions. GMA Consulting will be the exclusive reseller and implementation partner for CollabFactory in the financial services sector in the U.K.
CollabFactory is committed to helping clients enable their collaboration and sharing of vital information in today's business environment. "We are pleased that GMA Consulting has become our first partner serving the European and United Kingdom markets. In GMA we have found a firm that, like us, is focused on the SharePoint and Salesforce platforms. GMA has a solid track record of delivering quality solutions into the financial services sector, a market which is very important for us", said Paul Chae, Vice President of Product Marketing at RedMetal Inc.
sfconnector is a cost-effective, easy-to-configure application that enables timely and accurate information sharing of both customer and sales information by automating one way or bi-directional data synchronization between SharePoint and salesforce.com. Without compromising the integrity of either database, it gives individuals and teams the information they need to be more collaborative and productive.
According to Ben Grey, a Director at GMA Consulting, "Many of our financial services customers use both SharePoint and salesforce.com and would like to transfer data and documents between them. The two platforms do not integrate natively so until now any interaction between SharePoint and the SFDC required custom-written actions via salesforce.com's API which are time consuming and expensive."
"Once customers start using sfconnector, they will see more ways to make connections between SharePoint and salesforce.com — and other information sources as well to benefit teams such as: marketing, customer service, client service teams, project development teams, help desks, and call center agents. We are delighted to be working with CollabFactory, and we believe that sfconnector will provide our clients with a flexible and effective yet inexpensive solution to help them integrate SharePoint and salesforce.com." continued Grey.
