CloudCraze Named to Chicago Inno’s 50 on Fire

Dec 15, 2016

Recognized as a leader in innovation for its rapid growth, industry accolades and top-tier client roster

CloudCraze, an enterprise B2B commerce solution built natively on Salesforce, is a winner of Chicago Inno’s 50 on Fire in the B2B category for its growth and innovation in 2016. The SaaS solution fuels agile, flexible and adaptable customer experiences for some of the world’s most iconic brands, including Coca-Cola, Avid, AB InBev, Barry-Callebaut, Ecolab, GE, L’Oreal, and Kellogg’s.
The award recognizes individuals and organizations across Chicago’s business landscape for their commitment to innovation. As the fastest growing SaaS commerce company in Chicago, CloudCraze was selected from 150 finalists as one of 11 B2B winners. The B2B category had more nominees than any other category this year.

Led by an executive team that previously founded and sold Chicago-based Acquity Group to Accenture for $316 million in 2013, CloudCraze is shaking up the B2B industry as the only commerce platform built natively on Salesforce. With CloudCraze, B2B organizations are able to launch their commerce platform in a matter of weeks, compared to the 18 months or more that legacy, on-premise platforms typically take to implement.

CloudCraze has experienced significant growth and recognition in 2016, increasing its employee count, expanding offices and opening an EMEA headquarters in London. It was one of eight firms recognized in The Forrester Wave™: B2B Commerce Suites, Q2 2015, and was featured as a Visionary in the March 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce. Additionally, CloudCraze recently won the Salesforce Partner Innovation Award for its work with Adidas — the only winner for Salesforce Community Cloud.

“2016 has been a year of innovation for CloudCraze, filled with tech advances, major client wins, and internal growth,” said Chris Dalton, CEO of CloudCraze. “We are proud to play a role in advancing Chicago’s booming tech ecosystem. We’ve made significant investments to enhance our platform and create dynamic B2B experiences for our customers around the world. We are honored to be among this list of amazing businesses in Chicago.”
