SOLANA BEACH, CALIF. — The Paladin Group, a world-class collaboration solution and cloud technology consulting firm, announced that the company has won a Lightning Bolt Trailblazer Award for Best Migration Bolt at The Boltys, an award event at Salesforce’s Dreamforce 2018.

The award celebrates the use of Lightning innovation across a variety of industries. By winning the award for Best Migration Bolt, Paladin has been rewarded for their hard work in producing the Jive-to-Salesforce Lightning Bolt. This Lightning Bolt was developed to help Jive customers migrate their internal or external communities to Salesforce while maintaining a familiar look and feel, simplifying the transition on the backend, and ultimately saving time and disruption throughout the migration.

“Paladin is honored to have our hard work recognized by Salesforce,” said Alan Lewis, CEO of Paladin Group. “We developed the Jive-to-Salesforce Lightning Bolt to make the migration between community platforms as simple and painless as possible for our customers, and our devotion to their satisfaction has resulted in an elegant Salesforce solution worthy of note from Salesforce itself.”

In July, Paladin Group celebrated being named a Silver Implementation Partner for Salesforce by meeting necessary requirements, including earning a Partnership Value Score (PVS) of at least 250 points. The Salesforce Partner Program for Consulting Programs gives consulting partners more access to enablement tools, marketing, and technical support. At the same time, it provides Salesforce customers more insight into consulting partner capabilities and expertise, allowing them to find the right consulting firm for their needs in custom Salesforce development, data migrations, or Salesforce implementations.

The Bolty Awards winners were announced at a private, invitation-only event hosted by Salesforce as part of Dreamforce 2018.
