We Bring Multiple Entities into a Unified 360-Degree Engagement


One of the factors that distinguishes Sierra-Cedar’s Salesforce Practice from our competitors’ is our depth of experience across three critical areas: the Salesforce platform, higher education business processes, and integrations. Another major distinction is our experience in architecting and implementing Salesforce for enterprise-wide solutions. We apply our knowledge of Salesforce, higher education, and integration technologies to bring multiple entities into a unified 360-degree engagement with prospective, current, and former students, administrators, faculty, and other constituencies.
