Custom workflow applications and business solutions. Work-Relay is the fastest and least expensive way to build custom workflow applications for


Custom Application Pricing

It’s simple. Give us a call and tell us what you want to accomplish (for help with ideas, see use cases and accelerators).

Is Work-Relay a fit? If Work-Relay is a fit, then there are three different ways to quickly build your custom workflow application.

We or one of our Salesforce partners use the Work-Relay platform to quickly build solutions based on your specifications, and provide all the support you need moving forward.

This is the fastest, lowest risk way to get solutions built on Salesforce for organizations that don’t have the resources or budget to build solutions themselves.

With Work-Relay, expect to pay at least 70% less for a custom application when compared to working with Salesforce developers.

This option is for organizations that have the resources available to learn to use the platform to build any number of solutions at minimal cost.

In order to build workflow applications with Work-Relay, we recommend you use a business analyst (no coding skills required) but a solid understanding of Salesforce. Power users or System Administrators with a basic understanding of databases and workflows are also potential candidates.

We teach your resources to use the Work-Relay platform to build your own solutions. We provide full support for you every step of the way.

This eliminates the cost of hiring expensive Salesforce consultants and developers, and the Work-Relay framework ensures the solutions built are well-designed, flexible, and easy to maintain.

We use the Work-Relay platform to seed solutions, teach you how to evolve them yourself, and have us provide guidance and support to ensure the most optimum result.

This is the perfect option for companies that want a quick start but want to use their own resources to build any number of solutions later.

When we build together, expect to pay at least 40% less for the initial custom Salesforce application when compared to working with Salesforce developers.

After your first build, your cost for subsequent applications and workflows will continue to drop as you build internal capabilities.

Work-Relay is offering a new service for companies that need operational Salesforce applications quickly, but don’t have the time, budget, or resources to get it done.

We use the Work-Relay Rapid Application Design and Deployment (RADD) platform to quickly build solutions based on your specifications, and provide all the support you need moving forward.

This is the fastest, cheapest, lowest risk way to get solutions built on Salesforce.

With Work-Relay, expect to pay at least 70% less for a custom application when compared to working with Salesforce developers, and automatically get visualization dashboards and simple tools to maintain business rules, forms, etc. on your own, if needed.

When is Work-Relay a good fit?

  1. You need an application to make your employees more productive in completing their work.
  2. You need applications that will accelerate the speed at which work moves across your organization.
  3. You need an application to manage highly complex business processes.
  4. You need to migrate from:
    • Legacy BPM systems (IBM Lombardy, Lotus Notes, etc.)
    • Non-Salesforce platforms (Workfront, Smartsheet, Quickbase, K2, Pega, Appian, etc.).
    • Operational spreadsheets.
  5. You need to manage repetitive (process-driven) projects.

Work-Relay is not a good fit if…

  1. You have millions of records that need to be processed.
  2. You need an ecommerce, billing, or accounting application.
  3. You need a consumer facing (as opposed to an internal/operational) user interface.

Case Studies & Use Cases

Complex, Ongoing, Multi-Step Implementation Project(s)

As part of a customer onboarding process, the client needed a standardized method of managing tight handoffs between different groups, globally. In the past, the handoffs had been problematic, with tasks often assigned to groups before predecessor tasks were completed.

Sub-processes, with one process often launching a number of related processes based on the customer’s requirements. Many of the processes have steps that are tied to due dates calculated by date fields in the data model. As these dates change in the source records, they update the due dates in the process, so managers can keep close track of their implementations using a Gantt view and via Progress Dashboards. Extensive use of Work-Relay forms allows data to be captured dynamically and used in many areas of the process, as well as determine bottlenecks and other areas where performance can be improved.

Lotus Notes new product development processes migrated to Salesforce


Quickly migrate mission critical application from Lotus Notes to

Gain visibility into the end-to-end creation of all data attributes that make up the digital representation of a finished item.

Reduce manual effort by seamlessly integrating other systems responsible for artwork creation, nutritional information creation, supply planning, and ERP product data.

Creation of a “mother” workflow for New Product Development that includes all potential process segments with the ability to select a number of derived workflows based on a selection of options. The Work-Relay orchestration engine works with a number of external systems to drive the processes forward, and Work-Relay forms combine data from multiple sources as the UI for process steps assigned to users.

Legacy IBM BPM processes migrated to Salesforce


Processes are primarily service request based and revolve around Vendor management (SKUs, Options, Price Changes, Catalog Maintenance, etc). Most data resides in external DB2 and Siebel systems and needs to be integrated into the business processes managed in Salesforce. Data needs to be manipulated in Salesforce and then written back to the originating systems in real time.

Work-Relay processes replicated the legacy BPM functionality while keeping the user experience contemporary via the Lightning UX. Extensive use of Forms linked to the external databases allowed searching, loading and updating data that upon approval was written back to the source database. Dynamic multi-level approval processes include internal resources as well as Vendors, and provide the ability to track approvals, rejections, rework loops, and to track all comments related to those approvals.
