Confluence has been a lifesaver for us. We found them a few years ago when we were considering moving away from Salesforce because our custom implementation just wasn't working. Then we met Confluence and realized it was all about the quality of the consultant and we haven't looked back. Confluence understands our business, customers and requirements and recommends solutions based on what we need, then explains them to us so we can own our database. We've continued our relationship since the initial build and have been so happy with their ongoing support, recommendations and enhancements since we've gone live. Great company. – Michelle Warner, Director, Mobile Citizen

We have had a terrific experience working with Confluence. They quickly came to understand our organization and assessed our needs expertly. They helped us choose Salesforce and they have been there with us every step of the way, customizing it, preparing our data for transfer, and making the transfer process as painless as can be imagined. Implementing a new CRM can be a frustrating experience, but Confluence's knowledge and guidance (and patience!) helped us learn and implement Salesforce incredibly smoothly. The whole team at Confluence has been great to work with. – Andi Milens, Vice President, Jewish Council for Public Affairs
