The Benefits of SalesForce Commerce Cloud
Streamlined Mobile Optimization
More and more customers are choosing to shop on their mobile devices. In fact, according to Business Insider Intelligence, mobile commerce will reach $284 billion, or 45% of the total U.S. e-commerce market by 2020.
It is vital, then, that retailers have a mobile-optimized shopping experience. With SalesForce Commerce Cloud, retailers have access to design templates that are optimized for mobile, ensuring the shopping experience is just as seamless on a mobile device as it is on a desktop.
Inventory Tracking and Order Management
With traditional brick-and-mortar retail, inventory tracking and order management can be a headache. But with SalesForce Commerce Cloud, these are streamlined processes. Retailers can track inventory through real-time updates, and customers can view inventory levels at any time. Order management is just as straightforward, with retailers able to manage orders and fulfillment across channels, including in-store, online, and mobile.
One of the benefits of shopping in-store is having a sales associate on hand to offer personalized recommendations. With SalesForce Commerce Cloud, retailers can replicate this experience online through personalized recommendations. These recommendations are based on a customer’s browsing history and previous purchases, ensuring that the shopping experience is tailored to their preferences.
Integration with Social Media
Social media is a powerful marketing tool, and SalesForce Commerce Cloud integrates seamlessly with several social media platforms. Retailers can use these channels to promote sales, engage with customers, and build brand loyalty.
