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
