Salesforce makes Fronde platinum partner

13 Mar 15

Fronde, the Australasian technology company, has officially achieved platinum partner status with Salesforce after seven years of partnership.

Fronde is a cloud integrator with more than 350 staff across Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

Salesforce reported Fronde had been made a platinum partner along with 30 others worldwide with the announcement with their new partner programme.

Platinum partners were assessed across a number of criteria including sales, depth of capability and client success.

Dean Evitt, Fronde Salesforce practice director, says that a lot of effort has gone into achieving the platinum partner milestone.

“We are really pleased to have our expertise and experience in the platform recognised and to share this success with our clients.

“Our Salesforce team has delivered more than 100 implementations over the past seven years and maintained a consistently high level of customer satisfaction throughout.

“Fronde is a leading implementation partner in Australia and New Zealand, and has a team of more than 40, including 30 certified consultants (23 with multiple certifications) and the only consultant in New Zealand, outside of Salesforce, to have qualified as a Salesforce technical architect,” says Evitt.

The Platinum Partner Programme provides access to a greater range of Salesforce resources, and Fronde says it will help them improve customer service and business growth.

Stephen Chan, Fronde technical architect, says that Fronde’s technical skill set and expertise in Salesforce enable it to come up with new solutions, and the platinum partner status is 'a big endorsement'.
