DemandResults Launches New Force.com Application to Enhance CRM Data Completion

LOS ANGELES - May 21, 2009 - DemandResults, a leader in evidence-based marketing products and services, released Percent Complete for the Salesforce AppExchange today. PercentComplete allows users and administrators to see how complete information is for accounts, opportunities, contacts, cases or any other standard object.

Percent_complete4"The world's best CRM is only as good as the quality of data that goes into it," said DemandResults CEO Howard Brown, a two-time Salesforce Appy Award nominee. "The product is a response to frustration from Salesforce users that they weren't allowed to submit data records unless they had data for all required fields. It was all or nothing. Percent Complete allows records that are still in progress, and gives CRM supervisors the dashboards and tools to make sure that data entered or modified by their staff is as complete as possible."

Natively built in Force.com, the application enhances Salesforce's native workflow process by calculating completion percentage figures in real-time, as data records are updated. After the easy single-click install, administrators can use Salesforce's native validation rule features to easily assign percentage weight to specific data points. This insight helps administrators focus their efforts on upgrading data integrity where it is most needed. The app also works seamlessly with Salesforce's native dashboards, reports, workflow and other standard features.

Scenario

A Salesforce user creating a new Account, Case, Partner Profile or Contact record is greeted with the Percent Complete messaging system at the top of the data screen. The administrator can choose which messages the Percent Complete application displays by designating which fields they are working on. As the user completes the contact data fields, Percent Complete updates the completion percentage in real-time as it tracks the contact user's progress. After completing as many fields as possible, the user submits the data record. Users and Administrators can see their average completion of all designated areas of their organization's account by checking the Percent Complete dashboards at any time.
