As one of the most recognized names and largest privately held companies in the paint industry, Kelly-Moore Paints needed to give their sales organization one view of all customer records by integrating Salesforce with their ERP and POS systems— and they needed to do it quickly.
According to Grant Gouldon, Senior Applications Manager for Kelly-Moore Paints, “We want to focus our energy and resources on the quality of our paint and the quality of the interactions with our customers—not necessarily on IT infrastructure.”
Kelly-Moore deployed Dell Boomi AtomSphere integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) as their integration solution. The company also engaged with Dell Boomi training and services as a catalyst to even more rapid implementation.
“With Dell Boomi we are saving time and money, and enabling our users and making them efficient—we are accomplishing our mission,” says Julius Mercado, Retail Applications Analyst, Kelly-Moore Paints.
Gouldon echoed the productivity aspects of AtomSphere. “Dell Boomi allowed us to maximize the productivity of our IT team to quickly provide our sales reps with a tool that boosts their effectiveness and gives them a 360-degree view of their customers,” he said. “The power and flexibility of Dell Boomi enables us to keep a lid on the ongoing cost of ownership as our needs evolve.”
Later, after its Salesforce integration was completed, the company needed to implement EDI to streamline logistics operations with a third-party logistics (3PL) partner.
“Dell Boomi is our tool of choice any time we need to implement integrations between applications,” said Gouldon.
