About Us

We have clients in both the USA and in far-flung countries (...soon to be Trinidad and Argentina!)

Our esteemed American clients support our international work. They purchase packages of hours for Salesforce projects and support. We spend those fees primarily on airplane tickets to clients and for prospecting trips.

When we contract with an international client, we

  • take a plane to visit them (typically three to four weeks)
  • offer our services in exchange for
    • room and board
    • transport to and from the airport
    • ...and decent internet.

We work with our American clients even when we’re staying with international clients, often far into the evenings.

Our fees are considerably lower than other consultants with similar levels of expertise and experience. We didn’t ask: What’s the going rate? We instead asked: What do we need to bring in so we can travel to our international clients and serve those in American who might not be able to afford the going rate?

“Trish has excellent expertise in Salesforce and third-party apps like Apsona. It is a pleasure to work with her as she combines knowledge, communication skills, and a lovely personality.” — Sadhana Dutt, Apsona.com

Pricing for our services

We sell packages of hours starting at 10-hour packages for one-off support and continuing in 10-hour segments. Our clients purchase a package, and we get to work. We charge $75/hour.

Our true mission is intercultural understanding and exchange, and our vehicle for doing that is Salesforce.

The Salesforce Trailblazer Community has recognized Trish’s work by awarding her the prestigious Most Valuable Partner (MVP) status. This award goes to those nominated by their peers, and chosen by a combination of other Salesforce clients and Salesforce staff members. It means that our work has been recognized as a community contribution.
