What We Can Achieve Together
Use Salesforce AI for Sales and Service Automation
AI can bring prescriptive insights and recommendations to revenue engineering, sales execution, services delivery, resource utilization, revenue leakage, price optimization and many more revenue and service programs.

Salesforce Einstein and Professional Services Automation (PSA) software combine to improve services delivery, project outcomes, customer engagement, financial margins and revenue growth.
Use AI to Convert Data into Your Most Valuable Asset
AI converts data from an unused byproduct to an information asset and routes that information to the right person at the right time. It also detects patterns so that information reporting shifts from historical to predictive.
AI in Professional Services
What makes AI in the services industry unique is its focus on improving client acquisitions, customer relationships and services delivery. For example, AI for professional services harvests sales data to facilitate insights selling and increase sales win rates.
It allocates customer data into account segments to improve marketing campaign conversions and deliver more personalized, relevant and contextual customer experiences.
And it leverages project and services data to improve project estimating and solutioning, guide consistent and repeatable project execution, increase resource utilization, and deliver real-time visibility to project performance and profitability.
A Better Way
When implementing AI for professional services it's important to recognize that technology takes a back seat to the services use cases and financial outcomes. The smart approach is to define the high value use cases that deliver quick-wins and enough payback to fund the AI journey.
A 3 Step Approach to Maximize AI for Services Companies
The Johnny Grow Artificial Intelligence Framework integrates prescriptive use cases, measurable business outcomes and AI technology. It's a three-step sequence to demonstrate how AI drives the most important performance results. Below is a summary.
Start with the Use Cases that Deliver the Biggest Financial Results
Succeeding with AI is less about the technology and more about the bottom-line results. That's why we start with prioritized business outcomes and then assemble the use cases, data, and technology to achieve them.
As an example, several outcomes and use cases are shown below.
Prep Your Data
Data integrity is a prerequisite to AI success.
Customer data can be the company's most valuable asset. However, it decays at about 2 percent per month so without a data maintenance program that asset can quickly become a liability.
A data quality program ensures account, contact, resource and service data is accurate and complete, secured and available to those who need it, and in compliance with company policy.
And because data becomes compromised at different times, continuous data quality measurement is needed. To aid data quality programs we generally use a data quality dashboard.
The data dashboard surfaces data quality variances in near real-time so they can be remedied before they spread to multiple systems.
Recognize a 10% increase in data quality will outperform a 100% improvement to an AI algorithm
Service companies have lots of data. But most do not effectively use it.
To do better, once you have accurate and complete data, you need to assemble a data transformation process to convert raw data into insights and actions that improve service programs. A sample data transformation solution architecture is shown below.
Data only becomes an asset when it is converted from a raw material to a finished product of information or insight. Only then will the data provide answers to powerful questions such as how to increase resource utilization, fix revenue leakage or improve services delivery.
Apply Artificial Intelligence Software
Now it's time to apply artificial intelligence software.
This step is greatly facilitated by leveraging CRM platforms that include integrated tools such as Salesforce Einstein. These cloud-based platforms remove technical barriers and put AI design into the hands of business analysts and project managers.
CRM with AI benefits include efficiency-based cost savings and improved staff productivity, but the more strategic benefits include using data to identify customer behaviors and align company actions to increase customer engagement, grow customer relationships and improve services delivery and project outcomes.

How To Get Started
Proof of Concept
If you have an Artificial Intelligence use case or business scenario in mind, we can bring it to life with a Proof of Concept (POC).
POCs are normally quick exercises that deliver working solutions that verify success measures and can be expanded upon. POCs shift AI from a concept to hands-on reality.
