There is no doubt that change is crucial for the growth and innovation of every organization. In business, just like in life, change may hold many risks. Panaya was established with the vision of helping organizations manage changes to business applications, such as CRM and ERP, rapidly and without compromising on quality while ensuring that these business applications will not become a bottleneck for the business.
ForeSight is Panaya’s solution for Salesforce. The Salesforce platform serves as the data hub of the organization, and generally, it has a touchpoint with every part of the business. A single change in Salesforce can potentially impact the revenues, sales performance, and the organization’s service level. Panaya strives to provide intelligent solutions to make its clients efficient and risk-free.
Accelerating Growth of Organizations
Panaya’s Change Intelligence solution enables Salesforce professionals to see the full impact of any planned change they intend to make before going live. It points out exactly what may break, what should be fixed, cleaned, or removed, and how to manage testing based on risk.
The tricky part of implementing changes is that a single localized update can have unexpected effects over time – due to multiple fixes, legacy processes, and workarounds. This challenge makes it difficult to plan the next steps in upgrades, migrations, or, more broadly, digital transformations.
Panaya ForeSight Vision is to enable ‘organizations’ hypergrowth while dealing with the new world by creating an accelerated, safe, and smart Salesforce experience. The goal is to help the company’s customers with their day-to-day Salesforce challenges, and technology impacts customers’ ROI and change management.
Panaya provides actionable insights to help create an agile yet safe Salesforce experience, ensuring that the entire change journey is optimized both in terms of faster deliveries and by eliminating costly risks to:
- Improve the efficiency of any Salesforce team, which translates to better ROI for the organization
- Substantially reduce development costs
- Resolve issues fast and early so that it is cost-effective and simple to fix
- Allocate the saved time for innovation to push the business forward
- Build a solid and sustainable Testing strategy. Record your processes
- Keep changes under control to meet compliance standards
Avi Rosenfeld, the General Manager for Panaya ForeSight shares, “As part of our philosophy, we stay close and attentive to the needs of our customers. As a company that helps make change a positive experience, we know that we also need to constantly develop and innovate to meet the dynamic needs of the market. For example, we see many customers facing challenges with their Salesforce CPQ system, so we are now expanding our solution to support CPQ.”

Avi notes, “We also work very closely with Salesforce to make sure we understand their roadmap and vision and develop solutions to help Salesforce users with every challenge they may face. Be it with Salesforce CPQ, Vlocity or MuleSoft, what is common is that their deployments are complex. It includes configurations as data packs along with metadata, driven by complex relationships between objects.

This year we are extending our offering in 3 main fields: supporting Impact Analysis for more Salesforce applications / Clouds, such as CPQ (Salesforce Revenues), turning any insight into an actionable one to provide more visibility and dashboards to managers and users, and expanding our Test management solution to support the new needs of Salesforce testing.”
Panaya’s solutions “Foresee the future” and expend the predictive analytics boundaries to turn them into a prescriptive one: it’s not enough just to show an important piece of information. This is the key to achieving faster and safer results: start with forecasting every aspect of change, handling changes, and fixing problems quickly once they occur. The team explains, “We know from customers that by being able to fix issues at very early stages, they could save substantial costs for the business. We give the Salesforce team the confidence they need to innovate without being afraid of failure. ‘It’s the ForeSight AI power. Add to it state-of-the-art collaboration, and there you have it.
