Leading Quote-To-Cash Salesforce partner integrating Prodly migration software

Prodly, Inc. and Simplus have teamed up to simplify the implementation of Salesforce CPQ and other complex Salesforce® platform-based applications.

Simplus, a rapidly growing Platinum-level Salesforce integration partner based in Sandy, Utah, has become the first organization to join the new Prodly partner program. The agreement calls for Simplus, one of the largest Salesforce CPQ implementation firms, to integrate Prodly’s relational data migration application, Moover, into its implementation and post-implementation client handoff process.

David Belove, CEO of Prodly, said he is excited and proud to kick off the new Prodly Partner Program with Simplus.

“We look forward to working with the entire Simplus team,” Belove said. “By using Moover to implement Salesforce CPQ and Billing, Simplus will demonstrate the value of Prodly Moover to hundreds of sophisticated Salesforce customers over the next year.”

Simplus’ decision to integrate Prodly Moover into their delivery process demonstrates the importance of efficient and reliable relational data migration for implementing and maintaining complex native Salesforce applications such as Salesforce CPQ and Billing, Field Service Lightning and others.

Lance Evanson, EVP of Business Development, said this partnership will help Simplus deliver a more complete and quality service to its clients.

“Prodly Moover will enable us to reduce implementation cycles and use our valuable developer resources more efficiently,” Evanson said. “Equipping our clients with Moover will help ensure they can successfully maintain their new applications after the handoff.”

Painless migration of CPQ reference data

For Simplus, Prodly’s sophisticated yet easy-to-use Moover data migration software will significantly reduce the time it takes to migrate Salesforce CPQ and billing data and save hundreds of hours in project time.

Simplus implementation teams will be able to easily and reliably migrate client product catalogs with hundreds or even thousands of products, price rules and price rule entries. Moover replaces the time-consuming and tedious manual migration process involved in using a standard data loader and spreadsheets.

Unlike the data loader-based migration process, Moover data sets can be saved and reused over and over again, which will speed up Simplus’ implementations. It will provide a way to refine the best practices associated with relational data migration developed over time by the Simplus Salesforce CPQ and billing implementation teams.

Simplus also plans to use and has helped validate Prodly’s new Moover Salesforce CPQ data set templates. Gilles Muys, vice president of customer solutions at Simplus who sits on the Prodly technical advisory panel, was instrumental in advancing Moover’s features set and CPQ template review process. This suite of 16 templates has been preconfigured to migrate Salesforce CPQ data, eliminating hours of work to configure Moover data sets for this popular application.

Building a scalable, reliable and repeatable process

Prodly improves the scalability, reliability and repeatability of the development and maintenance process for complex reference data such as CPQ product catalogs.

Moover is designed to support SIs and Salesforce customers with large development teams using its new centrally controlled deployment architecture. This feature supports data migration for multiple clients and multiple projects from a single instance of Moover.
