19 Sep Dreamforce 2016
Dreamforce 2016 is just over 2 weeks away! There’s so much to learn and do this year with some of the best and brightest in the tech industry. Have you mapped out your itinerary? If you have, you may have noticed that Salesforce Quote-to-Cash (CPQ and Billing) are a big focus this year!
If you have any Quote-to-Cash questions, talk to one of our CPQ or Billing geniuses. You can find us at Booth #1745 or in the Sales Lodge.

Introduction to Lightning Experience
8-8:40 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5

Are you overwhelmed by the idea of switching to Lightning Experience? No need. We’ll teach you how to determine if your Salesforce org is ready to change and how to take the process in stride. You’ll learn how to prep for the transformation. You’ll discover how to locate and use, in the new interface, the features already familiar to you from Classic. And we’ll teach you how to leverage functionality unique to Lightning Experience. You’ll leave with the tools you need to make an informed decision about switching to the new UI and the features that come with it.
- Ksenia Choate, Salesforce Consultant at Simplus
Answering Your Quote-to-Cash Questions
If all the talk about Quote-to-Cash leaves you a little confused, visit us at Booth #1745 or in the Sales Lodge. We’ll have Quote-to-Cash certified geniuses available to answer your questions directly. By the time you’re done speaking with us, you may start feeling like a Quote-to-Cash genius too!
Making a Difference Together (#SimplusGives)
This year, rather than giving out the convention swag (who really needs another cheap pen or stressball?), we’re putting that money to good use. Come visit our booth and help us give back. Booth visitors will have an opportunity to choose from three different causes, from feeding a child to providing a gallon of water to a third-world country. You pick the cause, Simplus will donate.
Let’s do something that matters. Visit us at Booth 1745 to help. #SimplusGives.
We LOVE Dreamforce and we love getting to know other people!
