Salesforce Commerce Cloud is a powerful, world-leading e-commerce solution. The platform can be customised for any industry – whether B2B or B2C.
You focus on selling the products. Salesforce (software as a service) takes care of the technology within the cloud. As part of Salesforce, the solution can easily be integrated into other products of the company.
Its features let you optimise your online shop and increase sales. Two different versions help you reach these goals:
- Salesforce B2B Commerce: specifically created to meet the needs that arise in a business context
- Salesforce B2C Commerce: specifically tailored to the requirements of end customers
Personalised Recommendations and Higher Conversion Rates
Thanks to Salesforce's »Einstein« AI, you can provide your customers with personalised recommendations based on purchasing behaviour and interests. AI can lead to more time spent on your website and higher sales figures.
The solution boasts a high degree of usability for back-end users. Pre-built features according to the low-code approach help employees make simple configurational changes to the storefront themselves. Sandboxes and modern scratch orgs assist with development, testing and training. With the help of the Storefront Reference Architecture, online shops can be created quickly.
360-Degree View of Interactions
With Salesforce Commerce Cloud, you collect all your key customer and marketing data in one place. This means you always have an overview of your customers' interactions with your brand, which helps you create personalised campaigns more easily.
Support Omnichannel Sales
In addition to integrating your products with various digital channels such as apps and social media, you can also offer them in brick-and-mortar stores and through other sales channels.
Thanks to platform-as-a-service technology, the infrastructure of your system is in the cloud. Software updates, migration to the next higher version as well as maintenance of servers take place automatically and regularly.
Shop Everywhere: Mobile-Ready for B2B and B2C
Offer your customers an excellent shopping experience, regardless of the device. The e-commerce platform is optimised for mobile devices. This ensures an outstanding experience – whether for your business or as a consumer.
