Southern Light is the leading provider of fiber optic networks and high-capacity transport solutions in the Southern United States. The company delivers affordable, high-bandwidth services to wireless carriers, government entities, and businesses, keeping locations connected to one another and the world.
Challenge: Southern Light needed to embed a Google map into a Visualforce page that would use specified GPS fields from the viewed record to mark the location on the map. Also required the ability to load a KML overlay to the map from a source outside of Salesforce. Security of the maps was a high priority.
Results: This provided a solution with a major usability improvement in its dynamic nature to pin point fiber optic network locations at the click of a button, dramatically improving the speed of agent workflow using external and internal data sources. It also provided the ability to verify latitude/longitude.
