“Every company has gone digital overnight because of the pandemic,” said Adam Blitzer, EVP & GM, Digital. “With Digital 360, we’re delivering the full power of Salesforce for digital leaders — enabling them to move with the speed, agility and scale they need to operate at Black Friday levels every single day.”
Digital 360 includes:
Salesforce Marketing Cloud is #1 in Marketing Applications. With Marketing Cloud, marketers know more about their customers with powerful data management and analytics, can personalize every engagement with Einstein, Salesforce’s AI platform and create real-time marketing campaigns across email, mobile, social, digital advertising and more. The new Customer 360 Audiences, Salesforce’s customer data platform, enables marketers to capture, unify, segment and activate all their customer data. It provides marketers with a single source of truth of the customer and makes that data available for creating personalized experiences across marketing, commerce, service, sales and more.
Salesforce Commerce Cloud empowers companies to create seamless commerce experiences for buyers across all digital channels — mobile, social, web and store. Today, we are announcing the new Commerce Cloud Payments, enabling brands to embed payments into their sites with clicks. Powered by Stripe, a preferred provider, companies can launch commerce sites with an out-of-the-box payment solution. With Commerce Cloud Payments, brands are able to get to market faster and boost conversion rates with elegant checkout experiences that support credit cards, mobile wallets such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, and non-card methods such as SEPA, iDEAL and Bancontact, all with integrated fraud protection.
Salesforce Experience Cloud, formerly known as Community Cloud, is a digital experience platform that enables companies to quickly build connected CRM-powered digital experiences for their customers, partners and employees. Combining world-class features like Salesforce CMS and Experience Builder with a suite of pre-packaged apps, companies can easily create and deliver personalized websites, portals, mobile apps to any channel or device — with clicks, or code.
