Salesforce, [NYSE: CRM], a global leader in customer relationship management software, today announced that more than 15 international, federal, state and local agencies, including the State of New Hampshire and the City of Chicago, are using the Salesforce Platform and Work.com for Vaccines to help schedule vaccination appointments and manage their COVID-19 vaccine programs including vaccine inventory management and administration, notifications, outcome monitoring, and more.
“We have started to embark on an unprecedented endeavor, to inject the vaccine twice in every single American. This is going to require systems with a level of trust, agility and speed,” said Dr. Geeta Nayyar, Executive Medical Director with Salesforce. “We are blessed to have the most trusted, agile and fastest to implement platform in the market, and we’re excited to play our role in this important cause. Private public partnerships will be more important than ever.”
Now that safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines are becoming available globally, public sector agencies and healthcare organizations are beginning to face the challenge of getting these vaccines to citizens. To do this, they need to manage the supply, delivery and logistics of vaccine distribution, schedule vaccination appointments and ensure they have effective ways to communicate with the public, such as education and outreach campaigns and reminders for people to come in and get their second dose.
“Salesforce’s responsiveness as a company, fast time to value, low-code no-code solutions and ecosystem of implementation partners have been an important part of our COVID-19 response and recovery efforts,” said Denis Goulet, Commissioner and Chief Information Officer, New Hampshire Department of Information Technology. ”We have high expectations for this partnership to continue in support of our vaccination distribution efforts.”
