MVP Trish Perkins just spent 6 weeks in South Africa working with a local organization that "believes in life after homelessness." She built a reservation system for the homeless shelter beds, so that those who want to come in out of the cold can reserve beds for the night. She used Salesforce and a Salesforce Customer Plus Community to accomplish this and will demonstrate the system at the meeting as a Use Case for Salesforce Customer Communities. Also at the meeting will be Sadna Dutt and M.A. Sridhar of Apsona, an app that is installed in Salesforce for a very reasonable price (quite often FREE) for ease with data import and export, as well as a very robust reporting engine. Apsona can also be used for inline editing and revealing data quality gaps. The app has been widely embraced in the nonprofit community for its versatility and user-friendliness. Sridhar will demonstrate some of the capabilities of Apsona.
Sridhar is the Architect and CEO of Apsona and has been building web apps since the mid-nineties. In the early part of his career, he was a Professor at a University on the East Coast. In the late nineties, he switched careers to industry, and has worked with both startups and large companies in various capacities. He has been active in the Salesforce eco-system since 2007, and with Apsona since 2008.
