WeDid: Salesforce Partner Community to Manage Resellers

Posted in

Challenges

The resellers of the business organisation are currently using the following model to track the inventory and price of the products.

Business organisation <- sends/retrieves inventory spreadsheet -> Reseller 1
Business organisation <- sends/retrieves inventory spreadsheet -> Reseller 2
Business organisation <- sends/retrieves inventory spreadsheet -> Reseller 3

This model is manual and it is difficult to keep track of multiple version of a spreadsheet for multiple resellers.

 

Solutions:

Design a new data model in Salesforce to keep track of:

  • Purchase Order (and keep track of status)
  • Inventory (Alert reseller and principal when stock volume is low)
  • Stock usage

Once the data model is finalised and the correct permission scheme is set, enable the Partner Community function to allow Resellers to login to view/modify their own records.
