Haroon and Saba Ahmad Co-founders Infoglen

Infoglen – Salesforce Implementations That Guarantee Success

Know your customer! Understanding your customer and their needs is paramount to any company’s success. To achieve that, effective customer relationship management (CRM) is key. Businesses need this visibility into customer behavior to track, retain, and grow their customer base. Recognizing the importance of CRM, Haroon and Saba Ahmad founded Infoglen in 2015 with a mission to provide delightful turn-key CRM services to customers of all sizes. Today Infoglen’s customers consist of small, medium, and large businesses spanning multiple industries including high tech, fintech, staffing & payroll, telecom, enterprise software, non-profits, and healthcare.

The Journey

Before founding Infoglen, Haroon and Saba worked in Salesforce technology in large multinationals, including Google. Seeing the great potential of the Salesforce technology, they realised that they could leverage their expanding experience on a host of other business needs in a more effective manner as an independent Salesforce Technology Provider. This was the seed for the founding of Infoglen, and after some initial risk assessment, they decided to take the plunge. Infoglen’s success has been built off on strong word-of-mouth referrals from their initial customers. At Infoglen, Saba and Haroon have instilled a culture of doing-what-it-takes to enable their customers. As customers came onboard and liked Infoglen’s  salesforce solutions which provided immediate and long term business value, timely delivery and value for money, the recommendations and new projects through customer referrals started coming in regularly. It’s no surprise that a customer relationship management services company would take customer relationships seriously!

The Products and Services

Infoglen is based in the heart of Silicon Valley and has a zeal and a mission to deliver a broad range of high quality CRM solutions and services to their customers. They build solutions that transform their customer’s experience and foster innovation in their organizations.

Custom Solutions for Business Process Automation:

Salesforce is built at API level which means that they can go beyond CRM and leverage the Force.com™ platform to build custom solutions to automate their client’s unique business needs. It can also be the platform that brings together all aspects of their business under one roof for a customer-360 view.

How is Infoglen Different from  other Partners

What really makes the difference between us and them is our commitment to our client as a partner and not simply a service provider.

Through this dynamic change in the approach to their business, Infoglen invests not just their time and effort to complete a project, but they also assume the responsibility for the success of their partner’s goals. Therein lies what might be termed as Infoglen’s secret to success. That commitment is rewarded daily in the company with successful implementations, repeat customer projects, and great referrals to new business.

Infoglen believes in working closely with their customers, and developing an intimate working relationship. This is precisely why the company believes in understanding their customer’s pain points to be able to give them a solution that meets all their needs. Infoglen’s standards of success stem from their values of dedication and commitment towards the success of the customers, employees, and partners.

One should always practice what they preach, and both Haroon and Saba strongly believe in that philosophy. They say that their clients have shown much more confidence in them when they recommend solutions to them in areas of their niche expertise. To ensure that their team keeps building expertise in niche Salesforce areas, they have set up Centers of Excellence (CoE), where they focus and help their team to get trained and certified through Infoglen University. These CoEs are usually in hot and upcoming areas which are of interest to a lot of their current customers and prospects.

Current CoE’s are in areas of CPQ (Configure Price and Quote),  FSL (Field Service Lightning), LWC ( Lightning Web Component Development). Infoglen’s motto is “Customer First“, which is  aligned with the overall business strategy of treating their customers as their “partners”.

Haroon Ahmad says “We have deliberately chosen to own the outcome of our efforts and we take it upon ourselves to advise our partners of potential shortfalls, probable issues, and remedies that are openly discussed long before they occur and thereby relieve the relationship of conflict or any stress. The question we ask ourselves every day is ‘What is the present or upcoming need of our client that we must be able to fulfill?’.”

The Growth Quotient-

Since its foundation, Infoglen has seen significant growth, both in revenue and in the size of the company. The company’s revenue growth rate has shown a steady above average growth over and above the CRM Services industry rate.

In terms of team size, from just the two people team in 2015, they are now eighty plus people, with more than 145 certifications. Haroon and Saba started Infoglen in a small room in their home, but today Infoglen is aSalesforce Silver partner with headquarters in San Jose, and operations in Vancouver, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Gurugram with a team of 80+ dedicated people (including solution architects, developers, and QA engineers) that brings together an effective blend of engineering talent and business experience to deliver cost effective and impactful solutions. They work with start-ups as well Fortune 100 companies and large enterprises.

What really makes the difference between us and them is our commitment to our client as a partner and not simply a service provider.

When it comes to hiring people, Infoglen makes prospective candidates go through a rigorous interview process to make sure that they hire  the best in the field, who are ideologically aligned to their “Customer First” motto and believe in “Customer Partnership” approach, That is what makes their team unique.

We have established a customer centric approach and make sure we align our goals to the goals of our customers so that our success is always measured by the success of our client.”

Haroon and Saba’s Take on the Competition-

“The rat-race is a sad reality today, a product of our own greed and ambition.”

The best thing a person can do is not to get caught up in the rat-race, remember that life is a journey and not the destination. Infoglen encourages people to identify their passions and areas that they love to work on, so that the journey itself becomes enjoyable for everyone and we are not just running towards material goals.  Your performance will be better when you  are working for the joy of doing what you love and taking time to stop and smell the roses.

As a team, they try to keep themselves focused and prevent tripping over the shiny obstacles that far too many people stumble over. They say “The world is too fast paced today, and while we are purveyors of technology, we need to  maintain a balance of human values that tend to deter against losing sight of what is really – meaningful, not just for ourselves but also for our clients and partners as well.

Infoglen is not just a talented technology team,  but they become very much a part of the clients creative journey, in achieving strategic business goals through high quality technology solution.
