"Tick-Tock, time goes by, so slowly..."

Author: Steeve Seidel - Nexell Senior Consultant.I write this article with two friends in mind. The first one always needs estimations. The second one never wants to give any. The best part is that I am in the middle and I need to find a way to satisfy both. As you can probably guess, the subject of this text is estimations, and it may be controversial. The one way Why are estimations needed, and why are they also not (really) helpful? Let us try to answer this excellent question. When a customer would ask me, "How long do you need to create an automation that will copy the value from field A to field B every time the value changes?”, I would think about it for 2 minutes and then say, "Ok, creating a workflow rule, creating an action, testing in Production, this is easy. Probably less than 30 minutes." So,...

"A different approach to customer relationship"

Author: Steeve Seidel, Salesforce Consultant at Nexell GmbH Veni, Vidi, Vici These wise words were said by an emperor (Caesar) to explain how he won/conquered. What do they mean and why are they relevant? We do not want to conquer a project, but we do want to do our best on the project. We not only want a happy customer but we also want to win the project WITH the customer. As a consultant, I will never be able to vici (win or bring a project to its best completion) without having been by a customer (veni) or having understood the customer (vidi). "Veni" - part 1 First, to understand a person, you need to know him/her. How can you do this? Is a phone call enough? Honestly, I love working from home, but nothing - really nothing, including your beloved webcam - can replace a handshake and a coffee (or...

Swiss QR-Bill and payment slip, with salesforce and Formtitan - our client ZVB did it

Author: Julianne Teber, Salesforce Consultant at Nexell GmbH The time is here & the time is right. It’s perfect timing! Zugerland Verkehrsbetriebe (ZVB) who is already using Salesforce’s Service Cloud for Case Management, wanted to enhance their system with one more App called “Incidents”. They are one of the first companies and especially the first FormTitan client using the new Swiss QR-Bill which went live at the end of June. All based on salesforce.com and FormTitan of course. First invoicing round was done July 1st, 2020. What is the App “Incidents” for? Why is it connected to QR-Billing?  As ZVB is a public transportation company, they send out their personnel to check if passengers are using public transportation means in the canton of Zug legally - which basically means, did they buy a ticket and the right ticket? As you know, there are people who get caught when they did not purchase...
