PwC and Salesforce
As organisations increasingly seek to respond to the challenges of operating in the digital age, PwC provides independent advice and extensive capability to help our clients deal with the impact of digital disruption on traditional ways of doing business. Our distinctive insight is that organisations don’t need a digital strategy, but a business strategy for the digital age, as digital impacts every aspect of the organisation.
The real imperative for our clients now is to become ‘digitally fit’, in order to survive and thrive in the modern digital economy. For PwC, this means that we must offer our clients a range of digital platforms so that they can respond to the digital threat and opportunity: we help our clients understand its impact on their markets and customers; define their strategy; evolve their existing capabilities; create new opportunities; accelerate delivery; and build digital trust in their brand.
One such digital platform that PwC is now investing in is Salesforce.com covering its Marketing Cloud, Sales Cloud and Service Cloud offerings. As one of a few global platinum partners of Salesforce.com, PwC is well placed to offer its clients full business transformation services for the digital age and specifically needs to offer Salesforce.com implementation services.
To develop our digital capability at PwC, we are looking for people who enjoy the excitement of shaping new ideas and working as part of multi-disciplinary teams on complex challenges, where each project is likely to be different to the last. We are looking for candidates with the passion and commitment, intellect and experience that can enable our clients’ success in the intensely competitive economic environment of the digital age.
