A typical budget of a Salesforce implementation project consists of two important parts — the cost of implementation services
of a Salesforce consulting company
(usually paid once) and the cost of Salesforce licenses
(paid yearly to Salesforce).
As we know, the bread and butter of Salesforce — Sales and Service Cloud licenses have the basic price of $75/month for Professional Edition and $150/month for Enterprise Edition
, paid per seat on an annual basis. A direct approach of multiplying the price by the number of your employees gives a significant amount. That, especially compared directly to other CRMs on the market, makes you think well to select people who will actually be using the system, or even look at the proposals of other CRM vendors.
