Macromedia is one of the 13,900 companies of all sizes, industries and geographies that comprised the salesforce.com customer base as of January 31, 2005.

Macromedia software helps millions of business users, developers and designers to create and deliver effective, compelling and memorable experiences on the Internet, fixed media, and on wireless and digital devices. The delivery of this functionality requires an effective CRM solution to manage leads, increase visibility to opportunities in the pipeline and understand the impact of marketing campaigns and programs.

"As we continue to build our enterprise sales model focused on such growth products as Macromedia Breeze and Macromedia Flex, a primary requirement is clearly the ability to effectively manage leads, track opportunities and share account information," said Don Hunt, senior vice president of worldwide sales, Macromedia. "In considering CRM solutions from several vendors, we wanted a system with an intuitive interface and one that provides at-a-glance views into deals. Salesforce.com met these needs and exceeded our expectations."

In addition, by utilizing sforce, salesforce.com's client/service integration platform, Macromedia was able to integrate salesforce.com with a system of custom Web applications built on Macromedia software such as Macromedia Flash, Flex and Macromedia ColdFusion. Information captured in these applications supporting on line seminars, trial downloads, and requests for information and white papers, automatically flows from Macromedia.com into salesforce.com as a lead. Automated lead assignment and workflow processes drive leads through qualification and sales stages that match each phase of the Macromedia sales cycle.

Besides ease of use, improved visibility, and integration, Salesforce.com's globalization capabilities were a key selling point for Macromedia. Macromedia has implemented Salesforce.com in its North America, EMEA, Latin America and APAC regions. Future plans and projects will focus on enhanced partner enablement, lead management, and bringing additional functional areas such as mobile and devices and pre-sales teams live on salesforce.com
