The Alpha Index approach

We have the vision to help you plan and implement your full Salesforce solution. And the tenacity to make your crm a ‘useful tool’ rather than an ‘annoying chore’ .

The Alpha Index approach is a robust plan to guarantee success.

  • First we sit down with you to assess what you want achieve from a CRM, what ‘success’ would look like to you. We identify metrics that would measure that ‘success’ before planning the installation.
  • Then we make sure we understand the peculiarities of your business, configure Salesforce and Alpha Publisher, and migrate your data.
  • When that is completed, we provide training, support, and ongoing coaching to ensure that you achieve the targets you set out, because let’s face it, buying a CRM is like joining a gym.

“We help publishers transform their business through Salesforce CRM”

Alpha Publisher Invoicing

Publishers often make series bookings, but invoice by issue. Unfortunately this means that many of the standard invoicing products that produce one invoice for each ‘opportunity’ simply do not work for publishers. Alpha Publishing invoicing does work for publishers, and can integrate automatically with Xero accounting and Financial Force.

Does Salesforce work for publishers? Where is the RoI?

Salesforce is probably the most expensive CRM system on the market, but it’s also the most successful.

Salesforce saves Sage from inevitable decline?

Sage, long time giant of accounting software, was stuck in its 20th century architecture.

Can Salesforce CRM increase your sales 10%? 20%? 30%?

A CRM is not going to increase your sales any more than a cement mixer will build a house – but don’t try to build your business without one!
