MEDIA RELEASE – 27 July 2017
Today Sqware Peg, Salesforce Consulting Partner in Australia, has announced that it received funding from Salesforce Ventures, as part of the new SI Trailblazer Fund.
Additionally, Sqware Peg has announced it was recognized as a Salesforce Platinum partner in APAC in May. The Platinum tier status recognizes Sqware Peg’s ability to provide Salesforce integration and development services within some of the most complex client technology environments. “Becoming a Salesforce Platinum Partner is an exciting milestone and a testament to the hard work of our talented, growing team” said Reid Meldrum, Managing Director of Sqware Peg.
The funding will go toward Sqware Peg’s continued investment in “practical innovation” for Australian business. Last year, Sqware Peg expanded its services to include a digital marketing and customer experience-focused division. The funding will also assist Sqware Peg to further scale its Salesforce Einstein Analytics practice and continue to align with Salesforce’s innovation in new areas such as artificial intelligence with Salesforce Einstein.
“Investment in our people has been a major part of our success to date and the funds will enable Sqware Peg to invest in developing the talent of the future, to meet the growing demand for Salesforce services locally,” said Meldrum.
