The JAXUSA Partnership Industry Leader award is presented to a company each quarter that has shown outstanding growth and community involvement. The award winner is selected by the JAXUSA senior leadership team and is based on criteria including continued growth in the region, innovative work and a commitment to the community it serves.

Coastal Cloud employs a “hub and spoke” model to best serve its customers.

Other team members ("spokes") can be found near Coastal Cloud’s clients, providing a local presence from Boston to D.C., Denver and as far away as Hawaii. 

Coastal Cloud is a Salesforce Gold Level Consulting Partner, achieving a 9.82 Customer Satisfaction score, the highest of any Salesforce partner in the southeast.
