Esor Consulting Group Joins the Family Adding a new member to the family is always exciting. Those new editions come in all shapes and sizes. From puppies to kittens, cars to kids, people love to share the good news with everyone who will listen. Bitwise Industries is ecstatic to introduce Esor Consulting Group as the newest acquisition to our ever-growing company. Who’s the Guest of Honor? Esor is a minority-owned Salesforce implementation consulting firm that serves educational institutions, nonprofits, and other organizations impacting their communities.

Collectively the team at Esor has worked on over 100 projects. In 2021, Esor Consulting group completed 44 projects and went from supporting consulting partners to becoming one. Esor is a perfect example of how non-traditional tech talent can transform the industry, and their communities, when given the opportunity. The Salesforce Nitty Gritty When it comes to Salesforce, Esor has a proven track record of providing outstanding service using actionable and accessible data to help clients transform their organizations through Salesforce to connect all integrated functions on one platform. Their three-tiered approach relies on assessments, implementation, and support. Esor leverages their expertise to analyze a Salesforce org and compare it with Salesforce best practices in multiple areas.

And finally, Esor continues to support the Salesforce needs of clients as their organizations grow and expand over time. What the Team Has to Say As a company that creates a bridge between humans from underestimated communities and stories of systemic poverty to skills and resources necessary to access opportunities in the tech industry, everything starts with the individual person at Bitwise Industries.

Every project completed with Esor gives someone the real-world experience they need to advance within the field. Tech Forward is a nonprofit organization that exposes marginalized communities to cloud and SaaS (software-as-a-service)-based technologies and careers paths to help participants be more marketable, obtain higher-paying jobs and career opportunities. In that same vein, Bitwise leverages public-private partnerships to provide paid apprenticeships to students to learn tech skills, connect them to meaningful tech opportunities, and build vibrant buildings in underestimated cities to house their work. By upskilling disenfranchised humans, it empowers them to change their own lives—which ignites and transforms the regional economies of the cities in which Bitwise serves. This strategic acquisition marks another milestone to grow Bitwise’s mission-driven business nationally, and strengthens the company’s Salesforce offerings. Bitwise has raised more than $100M in support of this important work; expanded its model to serve five cities (Fresno, Bakersfield, Merced, Oakland, and Toledo); and built a tech apprenticeship engine that will drive national jobs and economic recovery in 2022.
