Last week TMC’s (News - Alert) Juliana Kenny wrote that Salesforce.com and Wiel Brien, a real estate company, revealed the success of Wiel Brien’s Home Affordable Again program through the usage of Salesforce’s Cloud 2 technologies.
Using the Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, Salesforce Chatter, and multiple custom applications built on the Force.com platform, Wiel Brien has been able to increase the ability of the real estate company to run its business in the cloud and enabling it to manage every step of its property lifecycle.
As an organization founded in 2008 to invest in homes that were gravely affected by the housing crisis in the U.S., Wiel Brien buys foreclosed single family homes to renovate and lease through the Home Affordable Again program. The program is essentially a lease purchase option that enables home-financing for those who would typically not receive loans in today’s difficult housing market.
