Customer Case Study: Goodwill
Goodwill of San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin Counties has served the San Francisco Bay area for nearly one hundred years helping people and families in need secure jobs and build or rebuild their lives. As the third Goodwill organization established in the United States, the organization helps motivated individuals overcome barriers to employment such as long- term welfare dependence, physical or mental disabilities, homelessness, incarceration or limited use of English.
Goodwill Industries of San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin Counties, must manage their IT infrastructure on a tight budget while rigorously maintaining data integrity and auditability. When the organization contacted Sesame Software they urgently needed to address data integration and reporting challenges in order to assure timely and accurate reports were delivered to the state of California for business critical reimbursement funding:
The San Francisco Goodwill IT team selected Sesame Software’s Relational Junction for Salesforce and Relational Junction ETL Manager because they are cost-effective, short-time-to-implement yet feature-rich data protection and integration solutions.
