Salesforce is not binding with a standard ALS, but it has developed a master subscription contract. As a result, the service provider is vaguely committed to “making economically appropriate efforts to provide online services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.” In addition, the provider indicates that it has had a proven 99.9% reliability of operating time record for years and has made available a community-based real-time information page on system performance and security to display hosted operating hours and service interruptions for the previous month. 2. Create an authorization process to implement a standard support process to keep your agents on track and organization by running the same workflows with after-sales service requests. An ALS is a service level contract – the agreement between the service provider and the customer, that the service will be available for an agreed period during the month. But does Salesforce have ALS? Since CIOS wants to know what they can expect from their service providers, everyone is interested in obtaining a Service Level Agreement (SLA) as a guarantee of continuous service. While the gold standard is five nine or 99.999 per cent availability, few service providers will be able to offer it. Nevertheless, it seems that customers have nothing against the value of 99.9%, which means that the downtime is only 0.1%. This looks awesome until you do the math. A 99.999% tube is 5 minutes 26 seconds, 99.9% operating time means 8 hours 46 minutes of downtime per year, while a service level of 99% operating time means that the average annual downtime will be 87 hours 40 minutes. That`s why, before signing an ALS, it is necessary to fully understand the fact that your business can be left down with the service for many hours – all in the terms of the agreement.

Salesforce is used for data centralization and is generally considered a single source of truth for marketing, sales and customer service, where they relate to campaign responses, leads, accounts, contacts, sales opportunities, offers, financial statements, analytics and more. Therefore, if the system is down, it has a direct effect on these departments. Considering that Salesforce is directly related to business processes, the lack of availability of its tools means that the workflow stops, resulting in delays in customer communication and a temporary collapse in activity. The result is increased spending, customer dissatisfaction, poor reputation, lost productivity and the inability to meet regulatory requirements.
