Company Testimonial:

Project Purpose: Migrate New York State agency rebate management to Salesforce

Role: Project Management

Background: This is an excerpt of a letter received by our customer from a national company (one of hundreds) who uses the government agency's incentive rebate portal for each individual residential and commercial solar rebate application (thousands of interactions annually).

"We cannot express enough appreciation for the work that has been put into revolutionizing their application process.The new Salesforce portal is a pioneering effort not only across rebate programs, but utilities as well.

The transition to Salesforce has improved our workflows and overall customer experience in the Northeast. Discussing process and system improvements during the initial launch was smooth and resulted in changes that have dramatically improved our efficiency, ultimately moving our customers more quickly towards the benefits of Solar Service.

With the recent change from to Salesforce, this process has become one of, if not the most, efficient rebate program of the 11 that we participates in nationally:

● Rebate application administration time moved from 14 minutes to 4 minutes.

● Invoice administration timelines improved from 12 minutes to 2 minutes.

We look forward to continuing our success in 2017. Our effort to run the planet on the sun would be much more difficult without your partnership and we are honored to be one of your many happy collaborators."
