Are You a Salesforce Omni-channel Company And Don’t Know It

Beyond the Buzz: Demystifying Omni-Channel Commerce in Diverse Industries with Salesforce Expertise

Omni-channel has been one of the buzziest of buzzwords over the last decade. Powerful mobile devices paved the way for the age of ecommerce and the marketing hype for omni-channel commerce quickly followed. Unsurprisingly, this caused omni-channel to become synonymous with retail and holiday shopping. However, many Salesforce customers that sell B2C, B2B, and B2B2C products across various industries have become omni-channel organizations. In fact, you are likely one and may not even know it.
Let us make the case, starting with the definition Shopify uses to describe omni-channel:

“It’s about communicating in ways that are aligned with why they use a given channel and showing awareness of their individual stage in the customer lifecycle. Customers can purchase wherever they are—rather than treating channels as independent silos, omni-channel accounts for the spillover between channels and offer customer experiences within and between channels.”

Salesforce Omni-channel for Inventory, Orders, and ERP

As companies layer on more customer touchpoints and channels, managing inventory and the customer experience has become MUCH more complex. Even on a platform as powerful as Salesforce. Long gone are the days of large inventory stocks sitting in a warehouse that gets picked, packed, and shipped directly to the end customer based on linear, predictable demand. As more Salesforce customers extend SKUs, price books, services, and supply chains, more companies get involved in the value chain of manufacturing, marketing, selling, and fulfilling products. This dramatically increases the complexity of tracking sales orders, real-time inventory, customer service inquiries, and returns. Plus, you now also need insights into which partners/vendors are delivering the highest levels of service you need to delight customers.

Omni-channel Organizations:

  • Sell B2C, B2B, and B2B2C products
  • Interact with customers via multiple channels (i.e. mobile, website, email, social media, phone, brick-and-mortar, etc.)
  • Work in any industry that manages inventory
  • Utilize partners in the value chain to manufacture, fulfill, or manage returns
