University of Florida wins Salesforce Higher Ed Summit Award

The University of Florida was honored as the inaugural winner of the Salesforce Summit Award of Overall Excellence in Operational Efficiency during the Salesforce Higher Ed Summit in Austin, Texas.

The Salesforce Higher Ed Summit Award was presented April 28 and recognizes staff in the UF College of Pharmacy’s Entrepreneurial Programs who built a student-facing web portal with Salesforce, a customer relationship management software product. The portal allows students to enroll in courses more efficiently, while at the same time allowing administrators to predict enrollment numbers and react accordingly. It has reduced staff processing time from 600 hours to 300 hours annually and reduced students’ time registering each semester from two minutes to 30 seconds.
