Many eCommerce solutions are available on the market, but few can compete with the one-to-one experiences delivered by Salesforce Commerce Cloud (SFCC).
Formerly named Demandware, Salesforce Commerce Cloud delivers a unified eCommerce experience that inspires a tailored purchasing experience for every consumer across all commerce channels, including web, mobile, social, storefront, and more.
If you’re like many of our eCommerce clients, you may be searching for more control over your online brand, a more customized customer experience, or you’ve outgrown your present platform.
Choosing the right platform for your eCommerce brand is vital to your business’ scalability and future success.
Let’s take a deeper dive into how Salesforce Commerce Cloud can help you reach your goals.
What is a Salesforce Commerce Cloud?
Salesforce Commerce Cloud is a scalable cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) eCommerce solution. It helps your business manage its customer relationships and enables you to engage with your customers across all channels, including in-store, mobile, and online.
By providing eCommerce as a SaaS solution, Salesforce Commerce Cloud frees your business from the rigors of managing a technological roadmap – or figuring out how to remain ahead of the curve when it comes to best practice eCommerce capabilities.
The best thing about Salesforce Commerce Cloud is that it’s constantly evolving and improving its features to keep up with the fast pace of change within the eCommerce sector, ensuring that you’re always using best-in-class feature sets.
Why Should You Use a Salesforce Commerce Cloud?
Salesforce Commerce Cloud may be the right choice for your business if you’re looking for best-in-class B2C functionality on a single platform.
The main benefit of working with Commerce Cloud is that it allows your business to do what it does best: trade in the platform as hard as possible without focusing on some of the associated challenges of non-SaaS eCommerce platforms, such as scalability stability or managing a technical team.
Many consumer brands and B2C merchants have already made the switch and happily benefited from its comprehensive feature-set.
Commerce Cloud powers some of the world’s most well-known brands, such as:
- Ethan Allen
- Under Armour
