Last week at Constellation Connect Enterprise we awarded our SuperNova awards for the most successful transformations we have seen in the last 12 months. The winner in the "Future of Work" category was Asha Aravindakshan of non profit Ashoka (see more here). 

We had the chance to speak with Asha at CCE - so take a look:
In case you didn't have a chance to watch - here are the key takeaways:
  • Ashoka is a non profit working globally with 400+ employees in 47 countries, except the US every country has 10 or less employees.
  • Ashoka went from a spreadsheet based solution to using FinancialForce HCM.
  • In a DIY approach Aravindakshan, together with the Salesforce system administrator and a FinancialForce consultant, with an effort of less than 6 hours per week, took Ashoka live in 10 weeks. 
  • Aravindakshan used the yearly performance review cycle to drive adoption to the system, reaching over 97% of the employee base in the first month.
  • Training was handled in less than one hour - as users were familiar with the user interface using Salesforce already.
