Redesign your Business Practices with Managed Salesforce Services

The MillerKnoll brand portfolio now represents more than a century of design research, with each brand offering a full portfolio of products to suit diverse needs. The Knoll brand’s unique perspective uses modern design inspiration to connect people to their work, their lives, and the world. Knoll was founded in 1938 and is internationally recognized for their manufacturing of workplace and residential furnishings.

Project Impact

Trifecta's Managed Salesforce Services for Knoll have significantly transformed the company's operations, leading to enhanced productivity, improved data quality, and widespread user adoption, ultimately driving streamlined business processes and paving the way for seamless integration following Knoll's acquisition by Herman Miller.
The Challenge

While Knoll had, at times, employed a dedicated Salesforce Administrator to manage their Salesforce instance, they sought a consulting firm who could provide them with the necessary resources to maximize their Salesforce investment.

As an existing Salesforce client, Knoll recognized the immense potential of fully leveraging the Salesforce Platform. In addition to lacking the internal resources and expertise to manage the day-to-day needs of their Salesforce Org, some additional challenges they faced included inefficient business processes and poor data quality across company divisions.

The coordination of discovery, development, and deployment for a single source of truth was necessary to streamline operations.

Our Strategy

Trifecta stepped in to help Knoll optimize its use of Salesforce through a Managed Services contract. Our experts too the time to learn and understand Knoll’s business so we could effectively and efficiently carry out their day-to-day Salesforce Administrative support.

Through our initial Managed Services contract, we identified opportunities for the Knoll team to increase and improve their use and optimized their Salesforce Org to mirror their business processes. Knoll was a Sales Cloud customer, and their instance incorporated several integration points and backend systems. Some of our initiatives included creating new users, designing custom reports and dashboards, adding new fields to capture critical customer data, and building in process automation.

Once Knoll’s Salesforce Platform was aligned with the way they worked, we focused on training and documentation to maximize user adoption. Trifecta’s team provided every Knoll employee with user manuals and training sessions customized to their job function.


Seeing the value of having Trifecta’s team at their disposal, Knoll continued to sign on for subsequent years of Managed Services contracts. Our institutional knowledge of their business has allowed Trifecta to act as an extension of Knoll’s team, swiftly responding to tickets logged in JIRA related to bugs, questions, issues, or process improvements.

Some of the work Trifecta has completed through our Managed Services contract has resulted in larger, strategic projects for Knoll. For example, through the ticketing system, we collaboratively identified inefficiencies within Sales Cloud that could be resolved by converting from Salesforce Classic to Lightning Experience. Trifecta assembled a project team to convert Knoll’s Org so they could take advantage of features such as the components library and app builder to support customization and third-party apps.

Trifecta also worked closely with Knoll’s team to create custom code to enable and optimize a feature called Knoll Pricing Requests (KPRs). KPRs are a complex pricing and approvals process, driven by Knoll’s wide range of product customizations, that uses product selections and configurations to determine who needs to review and approve pricing before it is released to the client.
