Dubai’s Global Village is a massive entertainment and shopping complex visited by tourists from across the globe. Running such a large business with multi-national entrepreneurs poses unique challenges that other businesses do not have. These range from entrepreneurs’ visa applications to tracking employee attendance properly.
Global Village knew that Salesforce can help solve many of the problems they’re facing as a business. So they sought out Cloudworks’ help to pave the way for proper Salesforce implementation to address their needs.
Global Village Dubai, is the leading seasonal cultural extravaganza in the region that offers visitors an amazing array of festivals, shopping & entertainment.
Global Village is considered as the world’s largest tourism, entertainment, shopping, and leisure hub. It is located in Dubailand, Dubai, and has a total land area of 17.2 million square feet. Over 5 million tourists come to Global Village each year.

Cloudworks had to make sure that every single new implementation was not impacting the existing org and working with the existing customization.
Cloudworks came up with the following solutions to address Global Village’s requirements:
Came up with a biometric system linked to Salesforce so that their users will track attendance matters readily online.
Global Village Solutions implemented Salesforce gradually into their organization. Salesforce simplified important online tasks such as biometrics, fingerprint scanning, and online visa processing. Global Village Solutions is pleased because not only did they get valuable software expertise from Cloudworks, they also got worthy and compassionate human beings.
