Are you looking for someone to turn your business ideas into an AppExchange app? It’s time you hire Salesforce AppExchange partner.
For business visionaries, it is necessary to understand that the Salesforce AppExchange app development process is not a piece of cake. One has to be aware of all the options available for the app development process, which include hiring an individual, and second is hiring a Salesforce AppExchange partner.
Going autonomous for AppExchange app development will cost you a lot, and it also gives no guarantee that your app gets past the Salesforce security review process. Whereas, if you hire certified Salesforce developers for app development, there are certain things that you need to keep in mind because not every team is a qualified team.
To list your app in the Salesforce AppExchange marketplace, you want certified Salesforce Consultant AppExchange professionals who have proven working experience.
Types of Salesforce AppExchange Partners and Their Benefits
Majorly there are three kinds of AppExchange partners – first is Independent Software Vendors, a.k.a ISVs, second is consulting and integration partners, and third is cloud resellers.
Let’s understand them!
Independent Software Vendor (ISVs)
An ISV is a company or individual that develops, markets and sells software applications that are built on the Salesforce platform. These applications are known as “AppExchange Apps” and are made available to Salesforce customers through the Salesforce AppExchange marketplace.
ISVs play a crucial role in extending the functionality of the Salesforce platform and providing innovative solutions to address specific business needs. They develop a wide range of apps, including industry-specific solutions, productivity tools, marketing automation software, customer service applications, and more.
Salesforce has an app exchange trailblazer score, in which it scores ISVs in four different categories that go like this –
- Base Tier – 0 to 249
- Ridge Tire – 500 to 749
- Crest Tire – 500 to 749
- Summit Tire – 750 – 1000
Salesforce evaluate this tire every quarter and accordingly assign a new tier to ISVs
