Our Salesforce consultants will help transform an awesome idea in mind, into a Salesforce app, define your business model as well as your application value proposition and empower your users while removing the IT bottleneck.

AppExchange App Planning

Our Salesforce certified app developers help ISVs right from selecting the app - whether to choose a Force.com native app or a hybrid app - to planning the complete AppExchange app development cycle. Besides that, our Salesforce AppExchange app planning services involve competitive business analysis, business requirements collection, app architecture blueprint and prototype building, and go-to-market strategy creation.

On top of that, we can optimize your Salesforce app with Lightning Web Components instead of Aura Components to make it more lightweight and deliver exceptional performance.

AppExchange App Testing

Our Salesforce quality assurance engineers will assist you with testing your solution by bringing together the development code, packaging it, and pushing it to the test Orgs. They will cover your code with tests, identify bugs, and validate your app for usability, stress load, acceptance, and functionality to deliver high-quality and efficient Salesforce apps. Also, our QA testers will suggest best practices for running app testing after each release.

AppExchange Security Review Assistance

Prior to getting an application published on AppExchange, it should be verified by Salesforce Security Team and pass their strict security review. Our Salesforce consultants will perform an external review and internal audit, and supervise you during the security review procedure.

App Package Review & Optimization

As your AppExchange partner, our team will ensure your product is optimized and makes the best use of recent or upcoming Salesforce features. We will help with architecture, and UX concerns for existing apps to ensure scalability and usability, introducing new Salesforce release technology where appropriate to ensure customer success and satisfaction, testing & release management optimization, and guidance.

AppExchange App Management

If you already have a Salesforce app listed or are going to get it listed on AppExchange, we'll help you manage your AppExchange apps enhancing them with more features and routinely bringing in the new releases. Our AppExchange App Management Services involve Salesforce app launch and support, AppExchange listing marketing and support, user training, and creating transparent app management documentation. We'll assist our clients in creating their AppExchange Listing, and setting up demo orgs that make use of trial technology (eg. LMA, TMO, TestDrive) to set them up for turning leads into closed deals.

Product & Marketing Support

Our developers and consultants will provide technical support once the product is released as well as ongoing app support and maintenance, assistance with installation and configuration into key accounts, ongoing assistance with documentation based on customer feedback and establishing a product feedback loop to optimize product installation. Also, we'll help you get the data you need to properly Go To Market and educate you on how to leverage the different ISV tools such as the Partner Business Org (PBO), and AppExchange Analytics, provide technical marketing inputs as needed that the ISV partner can then make customer-facing, and define, prioritize, or execute go-to-market strategies.

Salesforce app security assessment

Salesforce Org and App Security Assessment

Without software security, there is no trust. That’s why our highest priority is your application security as the main factor to gain your customers’ trust. Salesforce has already set high-security standards so you don’t have to create these settings from scratch. All you need is to configure them correctly to pass the Salesforce security review.

Our AppExchange app development team can assess how protected is your Salesforce solution against malicious attacks and data leakage both inside and outside your organization. We’ll conduct a rigorous review of your org’s health, adjust security measurements to align with CRUD (Create/Read/Update/Delete) and FLS (Field Level Security) principles, enable data encryption, create custom baselines to enhance the security of your clients’ sensitive financial or health data.

If you choose to develop your AppExchange app with us, we’ll create safe testing and production environment to ensure the 360-degree defense of your solution.

AppExchange App Update & Deployment Strategy

Salesforce has three major software releases a year (Winter, Spring, Summer) with new features and performance improvements that are well documented (usually, it is a 500-600 pages document). Our team rigorously examines all documentation to ensure the uninterrupted work of AppExchange apps we build and support.

Before each Salesforce release, we recommend validating your app adjusting it to meet the changes of Salesforce functionality and User Interface. Salesforce offers you multiple ways to introduce new features, improvements, and fix bugs in your AppExchange apps. Each option has its pros and cons: it might be fully automated or require certain actions from your users.

We will help you select the optimal release strategy for your app. If needed, our AppExchange developers will oversee all updates of your product.

Salesforce Managed or Unmanaged Packages?

If you are looking to create an AppExchange app with the ability to manage user-based licenses, protect your code, and upgrade it in the future, then a Salesforce managed package is your choice. Using Salesforce managed packages, you protect your intellectual property rights for the Apex code, and only your AppExchange developers can view and edit it.

Our team will help you create managed packages in Salesforce, pass security review, plan upgrade strategies, and more. We can also build Salesforce unmanaged packages for you. But note that you cannot sell them and manage licensing.

Unmanaged packages are used to distribute open-source projects and let anyone access and edit the code. You will not have any control over installed unmanaged packages, and they could not be upgraded.

Clients Say

Roel Waals
Founder and Head of Product, M |ployee

We needed immediate help with developing a major functionality for our core Salesforce solution. It was necessary to deliver a well-tested solution in the short term. Ascendix developed a custom application within Salesforce managed package using Apex, Flows, and metadata configuration. Despite the urgency and multiple challenges, the team was able to understand the current solution and adjust it in time and within the planned budget. As a project supervisor, I was very satisfied by communication with the team, they were replying rapidly, stand-ups, and other meetings were well-structured and effective.

Zachary F. Weiss
Managing Partner, SAB Capital

We hired Ascendix to help us design a proprietary CRM system built on top of Salesforce. We interviewed many Salesforce/CRM developers and decided to work with Ascendix based on their track record and specific experience working with commercial real estate platforms. They have a fantastic turnkey product for commercial real estate companies, but given our unique needs, we decided to engage them to design a proprietary system that incorporated some of their signature systems such as their mapping app. Everything the team did was impressive. From top-notch communication to product development.
