                                                Project Manager leads your team through a Configuration Workshop that focuses on user needs
                                                to be addressed by the system. Using a Business Process Guide, which integrates knowledge

                                                a predicable and logical manner. Founded on industry best practices, this process defines the
                                                scope of the project and provides clarity for the implementation team, reducing any unexpected
                                                surprises. When it comes to system roll out, a Pivotal CRM System Engineer will work with you to
                                                plan the architecture, install the system, and optimize performance.

                                                transfer takes place during all phases of the implementation. With your business users—sales,
