7Summits Recognized as Product Challenger in Implementation Services for Core Salesforce Clouds by ISG

7Summits Named a Product Challenger by ISG7Summits, the leading provider of experience-centered digital solutions, today announced it has been recognized as a Product Challenger in Salesforce support by Information Services Group (ISG), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.   

According to the ISG Provider Lens™ 2020 Salesforce Ecosystem Partners Report for the U.S., 7Summits is among the top providers in implementation services for core clouds. 

“Salesforce ecosystem service providers offer a crucial service for companies that don’t have the in-house knowledge or capacity to implement or operate the applications on their own,” said Jan Erik Aase, director and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research. “Salesforce offers almost continuous updates, and service providers help companies keep up with the frequent changes and product enhancements.”

“Being named a Product Challenger in the Salesforce ecosystem represents both where we are and where we’re headed as an organization,” said 7Summits Founder and CEO Paul Stillmank. “7Summits’ purpose is to unleash people’s potential to create, compete and innovate in entirely new ways, and one of our six core values is to Solve for X!’” These core elements not only define us; they represent what we provide to our clients. This Product Challenger recognition sends the point home by celebrating our multi-Cloud expertise which puts us at the cutting edge of the industry, leveraging online, community-led experiences to digitally transform any business process or application to deliver substantial business value.”

The ISG report highlights 7Summits strengths in three primary areas. First, the company has a unique approach to using Community Cloud, which includes “designing solutions by aggregating functionalities of multiple clouds and data sources and by using Community Cloud as the system of engagement.” 

The report also recognizes 7Summits for its expertise across a variety of industries. The report cites specific examples of how their solutions impact users at healthcare and manufacturing companies, while also mentioning 7Summits’ experience in high tech/software, financial services and higher education. 

The final strength that the report features is 7Summits’ growing library of pre-built Salesforce applications that help clients implement high-quality digital experiences quickly. Specifically, it nods to the accelerator packs that “consist of numerous ready-to-use, user-experience-focused components.” The ability to support many different use cases and easily meet individual business needs make the accelerator library a notable contributor to 7Summits’ status as a Product Challenger.

“Our goal is to continue to have the largest library of Accelerators in the Salesforce ecosystem, and we’re constantly adding more,” said Senior Vice President of Product Development John Price. “Our drag-and-drop components lets clients truly leverage Salesforce as a clicks-not-code platform for critical business applications.”
