Version 1 of SMS was created initially as a private app for and at the behest of TranUnion. At that time the capabilities of the Salesforce AppExchange were rudimentary. But over time the platform afforded us with significant capabilities and a strong ecosystem of developers, which in turn enabled us to build the sophisticated capabilities we desired as a part of SMS. The result in Q4 of 2015 was SMS Version 2. We added predictive metrics, a sophisticated knowledge library capability for sale people, and skill development systems. (Note though that we were far from finished!)
As a result, in October of 2015 CIOReview awarded us as a Top 20 Most Promising Salesforce Solution Provider 2015.

Version 2 beta testing commenced in 2016 with Newforma, who reaped significant rewards from their use of SMS. This testing was extended so that we could add additional key functions to SMS. As mentioned above, those functions included:
- The integration of Conga Composer to provide sales people with the ability to easily generate beautiful, professional emails to better define, manage, and control opportunities while differentiating themselves from the competition,
- The integration of GoJS, which enabled sales people to generate professional Impact Trees™, which are buyer-facing deliverables to help them win complex B2B buying committee sales, and
- Added Advanced Multi-Currency support, which is necessary for clients whose opportunities may be in any number of currencies.
As a result, we were pleased to have been chosen as a finalist for CIO Applications prestigious Top 25 Salesforce Solution Providers 2017.
In 2017 we were nominated for The Future Now Awards, which celebrates the world’s most innovative companies using Salesforce.
