A leading figure in the contemporary art world, a gallery whose reputation spans continents, sought to streamline sales and nurture client relationships with Salesforce. Yet, the path to CRM implementation proved fraught with unforeseen challenges. To ensure a successful launch, the gallery turned to AbsoluteLabs for expertise in Salesforce, integration solutions, and strategic CIO advisory services.

The Challenge Deep Dive: Initial enthusiasm for the new CRM platform waned in the face of mounting implementation delays and escalating costs.  The project timeline extended, and technical complexities emerged, revealing integration hurdles and process misalignment. Internally, the question arose: "Will this platform ever deliver its promised value?"

Why AbsoluteLabs? The gallery recognised that overcoming these obstacles required more than technical adjustments. They needed a strategic partner with a nuanced understanding of the global art market, its unique demands, and the role of IT in driving business success.  AbsoluteLabs offered a proven track record in Salesforce solutions, integration expertise, and a commitment to providing CIO-level advisory guidance.
