One example of a customer using a highly specialized solution powered by Fujitsu and Salesforce.com, is Leucan, a not-for-profit Canadian association whose mission is to help cancer-stricken children and their families believe in a brighter future. Leucan has addressed the challenging organizational tasks of tracking financial assistance, medical follow-up and palliative services for young patients and their families. Along with the Salesforce.com-based application, the Fujitsu solution is allowing Leucan's staff to manage details about patients, family members, volunteers and service providers with greater ease and efficiency. Fujitsu and Salesforce.com are also enabling Leucan to manage patient diagnostics and maintain all information, chronicling a patient's condition.
"We're pleased to receive a major player distinction in the IDC MarketScape for Salesforce.com implementation services," said Alex Attal, executive vice president of Business and Application Services at Fujitsu America. "Leucan's transition has made a tremendous difference for its employees and the many patients, families and volunteers who rely on Leucan for efficient, accurate and easy-to-access medical and financial information. We are very proud to work with Leucan on such an important initiative, and with Salesforce.com as a trusted partner, we look forward to supporting Leucan's continued success and commitment to this admirable cause."
Additionally, through Salesforce.com Campaign Manager, Leucan can now coordinate its major fundraising events, from planning to registration, and have a 360-degree view of the group's activities, from the moment someone makes a contribution, to a member receiving the benefit from this donation.

We highly value their dedication to customer satisfaction and feel cherished to partner with such a great team of skilled professionals."
