Cloud Notions is a team of CRM consultants who deliver cutting-edge products and services via Salesforce.com. Salesforce is the number one CRM solution, used by 130,000 companies world-wide, and based entirely in the cloud with no software to install.
When we first started working with the Salesforce platform several years ago, it immediately surpassed many other technology platforms that we’d previously worked with. Businesses were convinced of the notion that they could become more flexible, win more deals, and stop working in spreadsheet files. These ideals became core tenets of our consulting practice.
Our main goal is to help grow businesses by using the right technologies for the job. Our team includes technologists who have deep knowledge of many of the CRM technologies used today. But more importantly, we focus on 100% success … we don’t win unless our client partners win.
About Our Founder
Jim Gordon is the CEO and Founder at Cloud Notions. He has held numerous positions during his 20+ year career in the technology industry, including business analyst, developer, project manager, system architect, and director of software product management.
See below for Jim's leadership approach, better known as the Cloud Notions Ethos.
Ethos - Driving Principles
In one of the most-watched TED talks of all time, Simon Sinek implored business leaders to “Start with Why.” In order for an organization to succeed, the team members must align for common purposes and culture. We call this the Cloud Notions Ethos:
Let’s be frank: when you work with other consultants, you may not be assigned the “best of the best” team members. Unless you are a Fortune 100 company, you may be assigned a consultant who is learning on the job. Large consulting companies have tons of “worker bees” who have zero or one certification credential.
This isn’t the case with Cloud Notions. We average 5+ certifications per team member, and the CEO is directly involved with every project.
Please see below for a brief snapshot of our credentials. This list is growing daily, and Salesforce certifications are not easy to come by. They require an intensive study, a proctored test, and regular maintenance reviews.
We undergo these certifications so clients have confidence they are being advised by the best of the best.
