Global consulting firm is most awarded Salesforce Partner in 2016; Awards were received for work with Lenovo and Sam’s Club 

San Francisco, October 4, 2016 - PwC today announced it has received three Salesforce Partner Innovation Awards. PwC received the most awards of any Salesforce partner in 2016 in recognition of PwC’s work with Lenovo and Sam’s Club to deliver innovative solutions that create measurable business value enabled by Salesforce technology. This year is the fourth consecutive year PwC has been honored in the awards program. The awards were presented at Dreamforce, one of the world’s largest software events.

“We’re pleased to be recognized with three Salesforce Partner Innovation Awards,” said Cornel Nolte, PwC principal and Global Salesforce Practice Leader. “Our goal is to help companies reimagine their business, and these awards are a testament to our client’s commitment to transform. We are privileged to have the opportunity to work with such outstanding clients and it is through the collaborative efforts of our client engagements teams that we were able to earn three awards this year. We are also extremely excited about our ongoing work with Salesforce, as their platforms are a major contributor to our ability to help clients create value.”

PwC earned the Partner Innovation Award in the Community category for its work with Lenovo. The solution involved the development of a global business partner portal, integrating over 16 discrete systems around the world, and enabling $1.3 million in savings.

In the Retail category, PwC helped Sam’s Club transform its membership experience, successfully implementing a multi-cloud Salesforce solution for all 654 clubs in the U.S. The solution was developed on Salesforce Lighting and delivered a suite of Mobile capabilities to enable the retailer to transform key aspects of membership engagement.

In the Manufacturing category, a homebuilder turned to PwC to transform their global customer relationship management (CRM) platform. Using Salesforce technology, PwC helped its client develop a new customer journey and consolidated marketing, sales and customer service applications into a single platform, accessible through a custom application.

The Salesforce Partner Innovation Awards is an annual awards program honoring Salesforce’s consulting partner community and recognizing the contributions they have made in helping clients innovate and connect with their customers through social, mobile and cloud technologies.
