Should You Migrate to Salesforce Lightning?

However, the migration from Classic to Lightning requires businesses to have a well-thought-out strategy and expertise  for a smoother transition. This is where Salesforce Lightning Consultants can help as they are qualified to design, build, and customize the Salesforce Lightning CRM platform.
