Key Discussion Points

TortoiseEcofin is planning a breakaway to launch their own venture with a focus on the private credit business, managing about $600 million in assets.
The client wants to continue using Salesforce and improve its utilization, making it the single source of truth for their business.
The new venture will primarily focus on family offices and RIAs; data related to wirehouses is less relevant.
The team has been tagging clients in their current Salesforce system, but data integrity varies among the sales team members.
The anticipated time frame to have the new solution up and running is around October, but this is subject to change.
The client aims for an automated, streamlined system where data is readily accessible and straightforward to interpret.
They want to improve data structure, cleanliness, and better utilize Salesforce features.
