Ingres Standardizes on Salesforce CRM
Integrated Salesforce with Intacct financial system

Ingres, the open source database company, is using Salesforce CRM. Apparently, it's been using it for the last couple of months.

It integrated Salesforce CRM with the Intacct financial management system from the AppExchange. It says it gives its sales, marketing and finance staff across five continents access to a single source of information. Ingres said Salesforce partner Demand Solutions Group helped with the deployment and customization.

Ingres used Intacct to integrate its financials with Salesforce. It says the Intacct SaaS solution shares data with Salesforce CRM so finance has visibility into the sales pipeline, contract status and other critical information, and sales can view account status and accounts receivables details.

Ingres also tapped into AppExchange to deploy Vtrenz for additional marketing automation capabilities and Xactly for sales compensation.

It said when it needed a custom opportunity form for the business development team to feed information into Salesforce CRM it simply built one using the platform.

CIO Doug Harr says Ingres doesn't have to worry as much about its infrastructure.
