All core GreatVines application functionality and data management, other than reporting and analytics, is developed on and powered by the Salesforce Lightning Platform. The GreatVines Mobile application (version 1) was built upon the Salesforce Mobile SDK, and has been recognized as a leading partner app for innovation. GreatVines has been a featured partner on the AppExchange Retail category since 2009, as well as a participant in the annual Dreamforce conference in San Francisco.
Salesforce is a cloud computing pioneer offering a market-leading “Software-as-a-Service”, first introduced in 1999, and a market-leading “Platform-as-a-Service” unveiled in 2007. The vendor’s flagship platform offering has been and remains Force.com, a cloud-native, high-productivity, shared-everything cloud platform service. The Salesforce Lightning Platform joins Force.com, Heroku and a collection of other platform-related capabilities. Force.com is built around a proprietary, high-scale, cloud-native relational DBMS. This is the same DBMS that underlies Salesforce applications.
By leveraging the technological strengths of Salesforce, and other platforms such as GoodData and Amazon AWS, our team is able to focus on solving sales execution and beverage distribution challenges for our customers, as opposed to worrying about servers, storage, security and authentication. GreatVines customers benefit from the same updates and improvements as all Salesforce platform customers, which means faster innovation, more reliable services and a user experience that is always ahead of the curve.
