Presentations and Sessions

Driving Transformation: Building Reusable No-Code Solutions in Salesforce

Westin St. Francis, Saskatoon Stage (Grand Ballroom)   |   Wednesday, November 20 from 10:30 AM - 10:50 AM

This year two stories of Salesforce success made possible with Arkus expertise will be featured in sessions. Sit down, put your feet up, take a break from all the walking, and get inspired. In the first session, we will learn about the power of clicks over code to drive innovation with Beth Hale from Youth Entrepreneurs, Inc. and James Bujold from Arkus. 

YE partnered with Arkus to implement Salesforce and drive transformation leveraging no-code configurable Salesforce automation tools and third-party applications including FormAssembly and Conga. Learn how this upgraded experience drives business efficiency, improves customer service, and sets the stage for scalable growth that furthers the Youth Entrepreneurs’ mission. Follow Youth Entrepreneurs on Twitter at @YouthEntre to learn more about their awesome work.

The Power of a Partner: Creating Sustainability from the Roots Up

Moscone South, Campground, Theater 4   |   Thursday, November 21 from 4:30 PM - 4:50 PM

In this 20-minute theater session with FormAssembly, we’ll learn how Eden Reforestation is sowing seeds to generate change and restore our lost forests with the help of Arkus, Salesforce, and FormAssembly.  

Eden made the move this past year to a customized Salesforce org that has revolutionized their workflow. Their new set-up with FormAssembly integration saves hours each week they used to spend on manual and menial work, hours they are now able to spend out on the ground, saving forests and biospheres instead of spreadsheet files at a desk. 

What exactly did they do and how can you too? Find out what the power of partnership plus the smart tech of FormAssembly combined with slick data modeling now makes possible for this team of arborary stewards and the planet we all call home. Learn more about Eden before or after this session by following them @eden_reforest. Click here to find details on this session in the Agenda Builder.
