Traction on Demand Receives Salesforce Partner Innovation Award for Higher Education Work with Georgetown University

Today, we’re humbled and excited to share that Traction on Demand has been awarded the Salesforce Partner Innovation Award for Higher Education for our work with Georgetown University.

Chosen from over 700 submissions and reviewed independently by the International Data Corporation (IDC), the annual awards recognize Salesforce Partner innovation and excellence, showcasing the year's most transformative solutions within the Salesforce ecosystem.

Partnership, collaboration, and innovation

In recognition of our implementation with Georgetown University, the award is the cherry on top of a huge year for our Education team who were also awarded Education Partner of the Year last month.

“As the first partner to implement for education, we’re honoured that our Georgetown University project has been recognized as one of the most innovative Higher Education projects of 2020,” said Dylan Petter, Education Practice Lead at Traction on Demand.

“This wouldn’t have been possible without the ongoing partnership and collaboration with the Georgetown University team, who are consistently looking for innovative ways to transform the campus experience.”

“A huge congratulations to our team and partners at Georgetown who worked tirelessly, in a short timeframe, to ensure this implementation was a success.”

Helping Georgetown University open safely and efficiently

The project, which required a rapid go-live timeline of only four weeks, aimed to provide Georgetown University with a fully integrated solution for COVID-19 tracking, reporting and visitor management. By seamlessly integrating solutions including’s Command Center and contact tracing, a healthcare partner’s attestation app and testing data, Traction Thrive for PPE inventory tracking, and Traction Guest for visitor management, Georgetown University was able to safely meet its reopening targets.

“In such a tumultuous year for education institutions, this implementation has enabled Georgetown University to safeguard the well-being of its community of students, staff, and constituents while supporting an efficient campus reopening,” said Dylan.

With, Georgetown University now has access to industry-leading tools and real-time data-driven health insights to make important decisions around supporting students, staff, and faculty with safe access to campus, and helping prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“It’s inspiring to see Partner Innovation Award winners such as Traction on Demand drive success for customers,” said Tyler Prince, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Alliances & Channels, Salesforce. “Now more than ever, companies need to accelerate their digital transformations—and trusted partners can elevate success for customers across industries.”
