Propel Customer Newsletter

Thanks for being a Propel customer, and welcome to our first customer newsletter! This newsletter is designed to inform you of our company news, latest product features, product tips, and upcoming Propel events and webinars.

The past year has been a busy and exciting year for everyone at Propel. A few of the highlights include; winning the Salesforce Partner Innovation Award for Manufacturing with one of our customers - AMS, we held the first ever Manufacturing Cloud Summit in Chicago, and spoke in many Dreamforce sessions. Next year we hope we can share more success stories and nominate your company as a candidate for the Dreamforce ‘17 Innovation Awards.

To improve communications with you and to improve our commit to your success, I’d like to introduce you to your customer success manager, Rachel Young. Rachel is conducting a brief survey to collect feedback to understand your experience with Propel. Thanks in advance for helping us continue to improve the Propel application and better serve you. Please use this link to provide your survey inputs. 

On behalf of everyone here at Propel, and from me, happy holidays.

Best regards - Ray Hein, CEO and Founder, Propel



New Features

We are excited to announce new features in Propel to help you easily manage material costs and product launches.

You can now enter the cost for each manufacturer part and roll up the cost for the entire BOM.

  • Edit costs directly on the flattened BOM view or on the manufacturer part
  • Select up to two preferred manufacturer parts on each item
  • Allocate percentages to the preferred manufacturer parts

Launch products on time and on budget with Propel Product Launch

Keep track of product launch costs, schedule, and risks.

  • Track project tasks, milestones, and deliverables

  • Collaborate on product changes and requirements with team members

  • Use Propel board to see which tasks are currently open, in progress, and closed by project team members
