We build innovative, native apps for Salesforce


We seek out the best people in each area of expertise, who are passionate about creating simple customer experiences and delivering incredible service. We’re a globally distributed team across four countries, who help each other out with all needs. Building the technology stack we’ve created requires unique skill sets, teamwork, courage to try what’s never been done before, opinionated ideas, and open minds.

Striving for Perfection

Here at Blackthorn, we are always improving the product line. Our team constantly iterates in order to provide the most simple experience for each of our apps to make our customers’ work easy and seamless. That’s why our clients’ feedback is one of the most important things in our development process.

The Company

Blackthorn builds Salesforce-native apps that make processing payments and managing events efficiently and ridiculously easy for businesses of all shapes and sizes. Our solutions were created from problems solved in our own business environment, and we’re constantly innovating based on our customers' needs.

With Blackthorn, customers can use the Salesforce platform to run their businesses their way, giving users full control of business processes through automation, configuration, and customization. Our unique apps fill crucial gaps and allow Salesforce users to customize their org to their unique needs with simple, click-based processes (no code needed).

Free yourself and your company from repetitive tasks, tall app stacks and complicated data silos, and harness the true power of the CRM you already have.

We Believe: 

Software shouldn’t require an expert to run it

Your organization is unique, and you need easy-to-use solutions that keep you focused on your customers instead of processes. Our native apps use Salesforce logic and automation, making it easy to customize them to your unique processes without developer help or complex coding.

Meaningful relationships make meaningful work

When surrounded by great people, we become the best version of ourselves and we provide the best work for our customers and partners. Each member of our team inspires growth, learning, and understanding of each other, our customers and the industries we serve.

You should own your data, not the other way around

We all know the power of data, but it’s most powerful when we have a holistic view. Our apps focus on bringing the right data together, making it easy for businesses to quickly adapt and grow.

"If we can build something that’s remarkably easier to use, while delivering far more value to customers, that’s a great thing. We’ll love it, customers will love it, and we’ll all benefit.”
