May 03, 2016

We are proud to be named a Visionary in the recent 09 March 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce. With 21 vendors evaluated in the report, the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce recognized CloudCraze for our completeness of vision and ability to execute.

The report stated that “visionaries demonstrate the ability to disrupt established commerce markets through the use of new technologies.” CloudCraze was positioned furthest for completeness of vision in the Visionaries quadrant.

The disruptive benefits of CloudCraze

As the only native eCommerce platform on Salesforce, CloudCraze is disrupting the paradigm of siloed on-premise commerce software. We offer companies a unique opportunity to gain a 360-degree view of customers with shared data and processes for both your commerce and CRM technology. Companies looking to drive efficiencies by switching to a SaaS commerce solution or by standardizing on Salesforce find CloudCraze to be a natural fit.

There are several unique benefits that drive many Fortune 500 brands, such as GE, Kellogg’s and Coca-Cola to choose CloudCraze to power their commerce experiences:

  • Customer-Centric Approach: By natively connecting CRM and commerce, companies can understand a complete picture of the customer journey because data and processes are seamlessly connected and stored in Salesforce.
  • Rapid Deployments: Since CloudCraze is a SaaS platform, we can get your commerce up-and-running in weeks. This allows you to grow online revenue quickly and start the ROI payback period faster. By launching commerce quickly, you can prove business value right away and constantly improve customer engagement.
  • Strong B2B Capabilities: While B2C businesses have historically dominated the commerce space, it’s B2B commerce that’s poised to grow the most in the future. CloudCraze is the only SaaS commerce platform for B2B channels that scales globally and decreases time to launch.

For B2B companies, creating a strong commerce presence has become a top priority due to changing business buyer demands and shopping habits. But legacy commerce platforms have not adequately helped companies meet these needs. Our recent 2016 State of Digital Commerce Report found that while one-third of brands spent more than $2 million for their current commerce site, only 44 percent say it took longer than a year to implement.

Companies need the vision of more flexible, customer-centric solutions rather than outdated, legacy commerce systems that take 18 months or more, and cost millions to implement. This is why so many organizations are switching to commerce on Salesforce.
