Case Study

Education and Employers

Working Together for Young People.

At a Glance

Salesforce was the perfect fit for EET – a platform that could solve their organisational challenges and work effectively with multiple different stakeholders. Salesforce provides a seamless user experience with beautiful design and real-time reporting.

Products Implemented:

Salesforce Sales Cloud | Salesforce Community Cloud

The Challenge

EET needed to ensure they had an adaptive online, cloud-based system that supported their latest volunteering programmes to be successful. They needed the platform to provide excellent user experience & design and to provide schools & volunteers with quick and easy access to the tools they needed to connect. EET also wanted to ensure that as a small charity, they could be as efficient as possible in supporting their users to make the most of the system, whilst providing detailed monitoring and reporting on the impact to key stakeholders. They are a small team and need to always look for ways to work smarter. Salesforce has been the perfect solution to that.

Education and Employers (EET)

Education and Employers (EET) provide young people with the inspiration, motivation, knowledge, skills and opportunities they need to help them achieve their potential, by ensuring every school and college has an effective partnership with employers.

 

Alongside pioneering research, they support a number of volunteering programmes which utilise innovative technology based on Salesforce, to match schools and colleges with relevant volunteers, quickly and efficiently. EET are always developing new programmes to improve young people’s learning and experiences.

 

Over the next few years they will be significantly expanding their Primary Futures programme, broadening the horizons of children and enabling thousands of schools to improve their governance by connecting them to prospective governors, proven to help them achieve higher academic performance.

This year we embarked on a huge implementation and upgrade to Salesforce Communities, including Lightning components and are extremely impressed. Simplus worked with us as a team, understanding what we were trying to do and innovating alongside us to bring about the right solution. A lot of what we did pushed the boundaries of the classic Salesforce platform and functionality. Simplus were adaptive and good value for money. We’re a small charity leveraging technology to make a big difference for young people through our volunteering programmes and are really pleased with the results

The Outcome

online community

EET’s implementation has been anything but standard and therefore required us to think differently, understand their user’s needs and put these first, whilst appreciating the implications for overall use. The resulting system has given EET the functionality they have wanted but not been able to access, for a long time. This will ultimately support thousands of young people across the UK. The fact that EET (through Knowledge) can now ensure the right guidance and resources are provided to different user groups is a game-changer, as is their ability to utilise Cases and the improved communication functionality.
