Overview

With the innovation of the Customer Success Platform, Salesforce transforms the way departments, agencies, and their community of contractors meet the unique demands of today’s constituent and more effectively deliver on their mission. Salesforce's FedRAMP-authorized Government Cloud - the world’s #1 enterprise cloud, built for government – gives stakeholders the tools they need to connect data, process, and people while also reducing the risk, cost, and complexity of traditional IT. The Salesforce Government Cloud enables organizations to digitally transform the business of government rapidly and revolutionize the citizen experience, from waiting in lines - to online, while meeting the regulatory and compliance needs of the U.S. Government.

Carahsoft and Salesforce have teamed together to provide Salesforce products and services to the government for over 10 years. As Salesforce's Master Value Added Reseller and Aggregator in the US Public Sector, Carahsoft supports an extensive ecosystem of vendor and consulting partners committed to helping government agencies transform their IT infrastructure to better support and deliver on the mission by using a secure, cloud-based platform. Carahsoft identifies opportunities within the US Public Sector and promotes those opportunities during all phases of the sales and implementation cycles.

  • Case Management

    The Salesforce Case Management solution allows you to view all case data and related interactions in a searchable, secure platform. It supports the full case management lifecycle by integrating critical data from multiple systems into a single location.

  • Contact Center

    With the Salesforce Contact Center solution, provide support anytime and anywhere, whether via phone, live chat, or social and mobile channels. Bring together all of your support channels, so agents can deliver service seamlessly.

  • Outreach and Engagement

    Reach your constituents with Salesforce Outreach and Engagement, the world’s #1 marketing platform. Use data from any source to build smarter email journeys— from basic marketing campaigns to sophisticated one-to-one messages. Drive valuable engagement at the right moment, just the way your audience prefers.

  • Relationship Management

    Salesforce CRM, a Relationship Management solution, provides Intelligent profile settings and creates a 360-degree view of every contact and interaction, helping staff deliver relevant communications and premium service in a timely manner. Relationship Management helps departments and agencies discover, track, and nurture relationships relating to mission critical activities for employees, customers, and partners.

  • Self-Service and Communities

  • App Development

    The Salesforce Platform for Government enables your organization to build, integrate, and deploy any type of app, for any need using clicks not code. You can create personal productivity apps — email, calendar, and spreadsheets — or full-blown enterprise apps for policy and program, project management, citizen service, budget and finance, and much more.

  • Advanced Analytics

    Salesforce's Advanced Analytics solution allows your organization to quickly query and explore data across CRM, ERP, Excel, as well as on social and mobile applications to get exactly the information you need without being stuck in a prebuilt report. With the visibility that predictive analytics provides and a 38% reduction in analysis time, agents have the ability to make decisions on what might happen, take action immediately, and provide recommendations on how to improve outcomes.

Federal Solutions

Legacy case management systems and processes prohibit Federal government agencies from providing great service. This failure to deliver great service, both internally and externally, can negatively impact mission critical agency functions.

Salesforce’s secure, flexible, enterprise platform supports the full case lifecycle by bringing together all relevant information into one connected experience.

FedRAMP

State and Local Solutions

Salesforce Engagement Center Solution integrates the call center, websites, and mobile apps over a single, social-ready platform. Users can log service needs, such as note new graffiti, request department review, or engage a third-party team partnering on the mission, from a desktop or on the go—similar to how people check into a location on Facebook.
