Vets2CloudTM was founded in October, 2014 as a collaborative of veteran owned Salesforce consulting and services partners and Salesforce qualified veterans committed to delivering quality, cost effective, life-cycle Salesforce solutions for our clients.
An equally vital purpose of Vets2CloudTM is to provide workplace experience that will supplement veterans' training to qualify them to be Salesforce professionals. To date, Vets2CloudTM has helped more than 100 veterans launch their careers as Salesforce professionals.
Our Dual Purpose
Succeeding Together: Case Study
“The Veterans2work team was a great partner. They approached the project with a determination to succeed and the commit-ment to ensure all deliver-ables were met. What impressed me the most was their accountability, responsiveness, team approach and ability to learn quickly.”
— Natalie Kerrigan, Director of Customer Data and Digital Engagement, Whole Foods Market
Whole Foods was considering Salesforce's Service Cloud as the platform to support its stores and customers worldwide and sought to prototype before full roll out. The company's management was familiar with our Cloud Computing Career Launch Program for returning veterans and asked us to submit a proposal that would accomplish the project objective while affording student veterans the opportunity to gain valuable workplace experience.
Approach. We engaged a senior Salesforce architect to serve as overall project supervisor, ensuring the overall integrity of the project, from start to finish and providing learning through his own 'heavy lifting" examples. One of our student veterans was selected to be project manager. Working closely with the project supervisor, he coordinated student tasks and presided over daily scrums to review progress and update the project plan. Also working closely with the project supervisor was an account supervisor, whose job it was to ensure client satisfaction through oversight and quality assurance
"I am so honored and proud to have been a part of this experience with you all. This has been an amazing team from the beginning to the strong finish."
— Jason Ellis, Senior Salesforce Architect and US Army veteran
