The research identifies some of the most capable consultants for implementing the platform.

WASHINGTON, July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Today SourcingLine published the first release of its consultants Leaders Matrix. The Leaders Matrix ranks each firm based on two critical dimensions: (1) focus and (2) ability to deliver. SourcingLine also published a companion directory of consulting firms, which grants prospective buyers a range of specialized filtering tools to help identify service providers that best fit their needs. This release follows the recent publication of SourcingLine’s Microsoft Dynamics CRM and SugarCRM Leaders Matrices.

This particular Leaders Matrix focused on identifying firms with the capacity to improve the sales and marketing process and customize the solution. The top consultants and systems integrators were selected based on over a dozen quantitative and qualitative indicators, including: company experience, breadth of knowledge, client references, Salesforce Certifications, industry recognition, and marketing presence.

Of the over fifty firms that participated in SourcingLine’s research, only fourteen consultants and systems integrators were inaugurated into the Leaders Matrix. The firms included are: Configero, Vertiba, Force by Design, Mansa Systems, Cloud Sherpas, QBurst Technologies, Interlinx Associates, Cloud Forward, C5 Insight, AppShark, Strategic Sales Systems, ForceBrain, The Sailor Group, and Business Marketing Tools.

"The dynamism and versatility inherent to the CRM platform can be as advantageous as it is daunting," asserted Joshua Margolin, Senior Analyst at SourcingLine. "The key to optimal utilization for countless firms is a strong partnership with proficient consultants and systems integrators, and our Leaders Matrix simplifies the process of identifying those partners."

SourcingLine will regularly update its research on consultants and encourages other firms to apply. Publication of upcoming Leaders Matrices will highlight the leading and Microsoft Office 365 and OpenText consultants.
