Instructor Biography

Archana Rajendran, Salesforce Technical Architect

Hi Achievers!

Welcome to the World of Salesforce - World's #1 On-Demand CRM!!!

My name is Archana Rajendran and I am a Salesforce Certified Professional. I have over 10 years of IT experience exclusively in the field of CRM. I started my career working in Siebel CRM and then in Salesforce CRM. There are two main reasons that drives me to do these trainings - one, my passion towards teaching and two, undoubtedly salesforce.

My interest towards teaching has taken many forms like doing corporate trainings, inhouse trainings, working as an external faculty etc. Apart from these, I do free coaching classes for school students on various topics about computers and technology.

I always cherish my journey working in Salesforce CRM because I truly acknowledge and admire its potential and the flexibility it offers when compared to other CRMs. SFDC gets upgraded thrice a year which means there is no endpoint for Salesforce- you got to be upgraded to keep you on track.I have designed and developed the courses with the latest version of Salesforce and I keep upgrading it on a regular basis so you are not any old skool.

My courses in Salesforce demands absolutely no prior knowledge about CRM so is well suited for beginners to start from scratch. This is not just a training course but a workout course packed with assignments and work exercises from real-time scenarios. Every topic discussed is related to actual real-time requirements and challenges. Apart from getting lifetime access to the videos and the assignments and the materials, you can always reach out to me via UDEMY for any questions - I will be glad to respond. At the end of the training, you are sure to excel in Salesforce and crack certification exams and interviews easily. Many of my students have achieved it. For whatsoever reason, if you are not satisfied with the course, I will happily refund the entire amount- no questions asked!

Happy Learning!!!!
