The Fíonta Note – Summer 2018

Summer is flying by!

Fíonta is keeping busy with exciting projects and keeping cool with ice cream…

It’s hard to believe that the year (and summer) is more than half over. Summer heat hasn’t slowed us down though – it’s been a busy month of meaningful Salesforce and web launches, new hires (we have other open positions, too!), and planning for Dreamforce and other upcoming conferences. Don’t worry, we’ve snuck in some time for employee vacations as well! Check out what we’ve been up to below.

What is Pardot?

If you happen to be using both Salesforce and an email tool, then you’re going to be especially excited to learn about Pardot!

Lead users down a path towards a goal and understand their engagement at every step. Measure and report on campaign successes and iterate towards improvement for initiatives that did not deliver as hoped.

What we did on our summer vacation…

Fionta CultureWorking hard and delighting our clients is what drives Fíontans and a key part of our company culture. Enjoying our time outside of work is another, and wow, do our employees do cool things! From traveling through Croatia and Slovenia, Glacier National Park, Estes Park, Banff (newsflash, we love the great outdoors), to pirate camping and learning how to sail in the Pacific, we make the most of our time off.
