Largest convergence of cloud computing leaders at Dreamforce 2010
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 7 /CNW/ - Tier1CRM today announced Needham & Company has deployed the latest version of Tier1ACE for Capital Markets. With Tier1ACE, Needham research analysts, traders and equities sales professionals now have a 360-degree view of their institutional buy-side clients and specialized workflows designed to accelerate the intra-day activities between teams. Needham has the tools to profile its clients in stocks, sectors and investment styles and uses this intelligence to generate trading ideas and perform targeted marketing of companies and analysts.
The Tier1ACE product suite includes a specialized event calendar for planning and executing analyst and company events and road shows. Built using Force.com, the enterprise cloud computing platform, Tier1ACE for Capital Markets is immediately available for test drive and deployment on AppExchange 2 at http://www.salesforce.com/appexchange/. The announcement was made today at Dreamforce 2010, the cloud computing event of the year.
"Needham & Company is a nationally recognized investment bank and we are proud to have them as our client," said Mark Notten, CEO, Tier1CRM. "Legacy on-premise and proprietary CRM solutions for capital markets cannot match the speed of deployment, ease of use and pace of innovation enabled by our product suite and the Force.com platform, and we are pleased that Needham & Company has joined our list of sell-side clients."
"If you're seeking to build an application that efficiently automates many of the functions of a capital markets professional, then take a look here first," said Chris Ricciuti, CIO, Needham & Company. "We've rolled out the Tier1ACE app with much fanfare, without the need to build from scratch. Its intuitively designed UI makes it easy for the user to navigate, and it has nice touches such as the ability to quickly search interests and view interaction details on mouse-over. It has been well received by our users."
"Tier1CRM has been a great partner with financial services knowledge," said Kendall Collins, chief marketing officer, salesforce.com. "Capital Markets users have real-time needs, and we are very pleased that Tier1CRM is able to meet the specialized requirements of the financial services market by leveraging the power of the Force.com platform."
