TEMPE, Ariz., Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DUFL, the premier travel service that stores, launders, presses, packs and delivers road trip wardrobes across the U.S. and to international business hubs, will be a featured up-and-comer in "Startup Valley," the showcase for next-generation innovators at the Dreamforce conference hosted by Salesforce, on October 5th. In addition, Joseph Herdt, DUFL's head of global customer support, will serve as an expert panelist at the Dreamforce breakout session entitled, "Everyone Owns the Customers: Knocking Down Walls between Sales and Service," on October 4th.
Salesforce created the "Startup Trail" as a venue at the popular event that allows Dreamforce attendees to get inspired by the next generation of innovators. It features a "Dreampitch" startup pitch competition with legendary investors Mark Cuban and Chris Sacca as well as will.i.am. The Startup Trail also includes "Innovation Sessions" with journalist-moderated panel discussions that showcase startups on an open stage. Startup Valley is the heart of the Startup Trail and features eight notable startups each day, including DUFL, which will demonstrate its unique business travel service app. The Startup Trail is located in the Developer Forest in Moscone West, 1st Floor and DUFL will participate Wednesday, October 5th.
In the breakout session, Herdt and three other panelists will answer questions from the audience and the Salesforce moderator, sharing insights on how they use Salesforce to bridge the gap between their sales and service teams and improve customer relationships. Herdt will discuss DUFL's experience with sharing information and customer analytics to enable sales and support personnel to collaborate more effectively and gain a holistic view of the customer so they can customize support and sales activities accordingly.
"Every customer organization is unique, and the sales and service teams typically each have information that can help a company provide a better overall experience, but data silos get in the way," Herdt observes. "Dreamforce attracts a diverse, forward-thinking group of business professionals, and I'm looking forward to discussing how we've overcome these obstacles at DUFL to deliver highly responsive service and generate offers that resonate across our market segments."
Dreamforce attracts approximately 150,000 Salesforce customers, ranging from small startups to Fortune 500 companies that use the leading customer relationship management solution. This year's event, which is sold out, will take place October 4-7 in San Francisco at a number of downtown venues. The Startup Trail will showcase startups throughout the event, promoting the Salesforce for Startups program. Herdt's panel is scheduled from 3:30 to 4:10 p.m. at the Marriott Marquis in the Yerba Buena Salon 13-15.
