Allows users to convert an Excel spreadsheet into an application on Force.com
Model Metrics, has rolled out cloud converter for Force.com on the salesforce.com AppExchange, which enables Salesforce CRM and Force.com users to convert an Excel spreadsheet into an application on Force.com.
With Cloud Converter, users can automate and simplify the process of migrating spreadsheets to Force.com. It also automatically creates custom objects and fields, including field types and list of values for certain field types, the company said.
Reportedly, Cloud Converter can be installed as a new application in a user’s salesforce.com environment. It works with CRM and non CRM applications alike, automatically reading metadata and configuring new objects and fields on Force.com.
In addition, it also facilitates the migration of applications such as Lotus Notes, Microsoft Access, Oracle or SQL Server to Force.com.
Kendall Collins, chief marketing officer of salesforce.com, said: The power of Cloud Converter lies in its ability to help users unlock their data in Excel spreadsheets and not only share it across their organisation, but also integrate it with Salesforce CRM or other applications built on the Force.com platform.
