Appendix A
Description of Standard Functionality
RO|ReferenceView to Salesforce.com


The RO’s RO|ReferenceView-to-Salesforce standard integration provides seamless user access from Salesforce.com to RO|ReferenceView Application. The integration also passes key customer and contact information from Salesforce.com records to various workflows of RO|ReferenceView. The integration is designed on the assumption that Salesforce.com is the system of record for Customer and Contact information, and that all data passed from Salesforce.com to RO|ReferenceView is accurate. This integration will require Client to provide a Salesforce.com logon seat for use on an ongoing basis by the RO|ReferenceView Application. RO Innovation will provide a breakdown of all required data objects / fields required by their application.

RO Innovation shall provide non-prod (test) and prod environments for this implementation. The tool shall first be implemented in test for functional & IT validation before any changes move to production. The application must also pass the black box security assessment before any changes are moved into production.

Summary of use models supported through the Standard Salesforce.com-to-RO|ReferenceView integration:

1. Single Sign-on

The integration enables seamless access to RO|ReferenceView from a user’s Salesforce.com user account. Access is enabled from the Salesforce Home, Opportunities, Accounts and Contacts screens.

3. Add a New Reference

  • On the “Add a Reference” screen, the list of active customers (company name) is populated from Salesforce.com into a dropdown list, from which the user selects to create a new customer record in RO|ReferenceView.
