Cochranville Ag Service enhances user experience

Cochranville Ag needed a way to enable users to access and download complex data from their preferred environment of Salesforce.

Users needed to view data formatted in Excel but still accessible from their preferred environment

Cochranville Ag depends on accurate and accessible data. Their crop rotation information is essential to correct crop management – the wrong information could result in costly errors and even ruin entire crops.

Their non-developer users were struggling with the sheer amount of data collected and spent a lot of time exporting data to Excel and manually adjusting the information to fit their needs. Cochranville Ag wanted to improve the experience for their users and enable them to generate formatted Excel reports directly from the Salesforce interface.

How they made it possible – no code required

Cochranville Ag used FME to query Salesforce based on given parameters, process the crop rotation data, and arrange the data in an informative Excel report. They then published this workspace to FME Flow Hosted and used the FME Flow REST API to connect it to a Salesforce workflow. Now, users can click a button to request an Excel report from Salesforce, and FME processes the job and delivers the report via email.

By running FME workspaces from Salesforce, Cochranville enabled users to stay within their familiar environment, Salesforce, while leveraging the full power of FME for processing large volumes of complex data. Cochranville has also expanded its use of FME to include generating maps, FME Flow apps, and HTML and Javascript reports.

“FME has become a great Enterprise Integration Platform for us.”
