Meet KELL’s New Education Team

KELL recently announced that we created a dedicated Education Practice and we couldn’t be more excited. Actually, KELL has been serving the education community for years. We decided to form a dedicated practice to better serve the education community now that Salesforce is delivering more and more solutions through it’s Education Cloud platform.

The most important thing about our education practice, however, isn’t the solutions, it’s the team. At KELL, we insist that our team members have real-world experience in the education and nonprofit markets we serve, in addition to being Salesforce experts. We believe that if you hire a consultant to help your institution with Salesforce, that consultant should understand and speak the language of your industry.
