"Prior to working with Ken all of our client information was scattered and not well organized. We needed to track meals served, backpacks and client services all in one place. Ken spent a lot of time up front interviewing staff to be sure he designed Salesforce to be exactly like we wanted it. Then after we were 100% satisfied he came and trained the staff on how to use the system and continues to make himself available for questions. Ken has been a joy to work with; he is a smart, polite, conscientious, hardworking man who knows exactly what needs to be done to fulfill his client’s needs. I would highly recommend hiring Ken to anyone looking to use Salesforce!"kathy tonnessen , Executive Director, Manna Soup Kitchen
"I can’t recommend anyone more highly than Ken Tallman; it has been such a pleasure working with him. Everything he does, he does with passion. He cares about the organizations beneficial work, and has an in-depth knowledge of how to tailor Salesforce to their specific needs. When Ken is involved, things are done correctly and timely. I wish there were more consultants like Ken."
Suzette Baker, Business & Admissions Director, The Liberty School
“Ken worked with us to learn about our database needs then worked diligently to clean up existing system and data issues, then customized our system far beyond what we thought was possible. This has made our daily work with landowners incredibly efficient. I've never had database development be so thorough and straight forward! LPOSC now efficiently and effectively tracks over 4,000 contacts, as well as nearly 200 conservation easements and associated details.”
“Ken’s unique style and authentic approach to Salesforce has been distinctively beneficial to We Don’t Waste as we transitioned from a previous data base to a single platform incorporating food recovery and distribution along with all our financial data allowing us total integration and the ability to facilitate effective communication with food donors, food recipients and financial supporters. He basically put Salesforce on steroids for the organization. When you are tracking over 25 million servings of food annually, accuracy is imperative. He has become a trusted partner to our staff throughout the process – willing to ask the tough questions and able to help us find the right solutions. I am truly impressed with his professionalism and his work ethic in creating a comprehensive data base to support the growth of We Don’t Waste.”
Arlan Preblud, Executive Director, We Don't Waste
"Ken worked with us at all stages of the project to ensure the new system would best meet our needs.

Ken built us a customized system that is intuitive, user-friendly and responsive to our growing needs. From start to finish of this project, we have been thrilled with the professionalism, integrity, and quality of his work. I would definitely recommend Ken to others!"

"It has been a delight working with Ken. With his straightforward guidance, we were able to smoothly transition to Salesforce for all our database needs, including integration of our donor, member and volunteer databases. He cut down our costs significantly, while also providing us with an ultra-efficient and expedient approach to meeting all of our goals, including streamlined data migration and tracking, integration to 3rd party payment solutions and systems training. I am impressed, and continue to be impressed, with his work ethic and seemingly inexhaustible energy and dedication."
Kathleen O'Connor , Board President, Powerhouse Science Center
“I cannot speak highly enough of our experience with Ken as our Salesforce development partner. Ken truly cares about our organization’s mission to help those in need and has taken the time to learn how we utilize our database to manage our overall goals. Step Denver uses the Salesforce database to manage its client data, its fundraising efforts, its vehicle donation social enterprise program and its board engagement functions. Ken familiarized himself with our system to understand each of these areas to best understand how we require the system to perform with specificity to optimize these distinct functions. He tackled the challenge in the most positive, solution oriented manner possible, with an attitude we had not experience with other development providers. We continue to be impressed by Ken’s willingness to put our needs as the primary objective in his work to make our platform efficient, effective and user friendly. We not only consider Ken a partner, we consider him a friend – to our staff, the organization, and ultimately, to our clients.”
Paul Scudo, executive Director, Step Denver
“Working with Ken has been an amazing process every step of the way! He spent so much time learning the ins and outs of our organization so that he could perfectly tailor Salesforce to fit our exact needs. Once it was completed, he took the time to train our whole staff on exactly how to use each piece and he is always available to solve any problem or answer any question we might have. He has proven to be a fantastic resource for our organization.”
