Deloitte Digital Alliance Capitalizes on Shared Vision for Technology Innovation and Introduces Vlocity Industry Cloud Apps to the Canadian Marketplace
SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 11, 2016 – Today, business advisory firm Deloitte and industry cloud apps company Vlocity announced a strategic alliance in the Canadian marketplace—building on Deloitte’s business and technology advisory practice and Vlocity’s modern cloud and mobile software. The alliance allows Deloitte Digital in Canada to offer even more industry-relevant solutions around omni-channel customer engagement, and industry-specific sales and service enablement.
“Vlocity has created industry-specific cloud software that offers compelling value for our clients,” said Kevin Armstrong, Deloitte Canada’s Digital Customer practice leader. “This alliance allows our two firms to bring Vlocity apps built on the industry-leading Salesforce platform to Deloitte clients in a way that transforms customer engagement, sales and service. With Vlocity, we are able to focus more on client transformation, capturing strategic business value and accelerating innovation, and less on custom-coding cloud deployments.”
Deloitte and Vlocity have teamed up on a number of Industry Cloud deployments in Canada, including most recently as part of the City of Toronto's Refugee Resettlement Program. Together, in just four weeks, they developed the Housing Opportunities and Marketplace Exchange portal for WoodGreen Community Services. The portal connects Syrian refugees with housing options and other community services.
“We are delighted to expand our partnership with Deloitte, a leading service provider on many Vlocity customer transformational projects,” said Rip Gerber, Chief Marketing and Alliances Officer, Vlocity. “Deloitte continues to offer Vlocity in their Canadian engagements to help clients capture faster time to market and lower cost of ownership for cloud deployments. We are delighted to be working with one of the most celebrated and award-winning business transformation firms worldwide.”
“Deloitte is one of the most innovative partners in the Salesforce ecosystem,” added Dan Israel, Vice President and General Manager, Vlocity Public Sector. “We are delighted to formalize and expand our already successful alliance in the Canadian marketplace.”
