Cloud-based B2B commerce platform recognized for its completeness of vision and ability to execute

CloudCraze, an enterprise digital commerce solution built natively on Salesforce, has once again been named a Visionary in the 24 April 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce.

“We believe it’s an honor to be named a Visionary by Gartner for the second year in a row. For us, this recognition demonstrates that we are a disruptive force in the digital commerce market and are providing significant value for our customers through fast implementation and robust B2B functionalities,” said Chris Dalton, CEO of CloudCraze. “We feel this reaffirms that our Salesforce-native cloud-based approach to digital commerce is exactly what B2B organizations need to be successful in the shift towards digital.”

CloudCraze delivers robust B2B commerce built natively on Salesforce, the world’s #1 CRM and most-trusted cloud platform. It enables native capabilities for incorporating Salesforce Sales Cloud and Service Cloud functionality into the digital commerce platform, providing a single view of the customer by sharing data and businesses processes across CRM and commerce systems. Centralized data empowers sales representatives with a clearer picture of customer needs and purchasing habits to cross-sell, upsell and personalize offerings more effectively.

CloudCraze provides strong B2B capabilities and faster site launches. Simplified implementation through an agile approach enables faster time-to-market, resulting in an earlier payback period for B2B organizations. Additionally, CloudCraze’s depth of B2B functionality address the complex nature of the B2B commerce industry. The platform’s B2B-specific capabilities include contract pricing for multiple contracts at once, order and pricing override functionality based on a person’s role, and account-based viewing settings.

The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce analyzed 21 vendors on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. Vendors are assessed on market presence and company viability, product functionality and product agility. The vendors with the highest aggregated evaluation scores in the inclusion criteria are included in the report and placed on a market spectrum of leaders, challengers, visionaries and niche players.

“Over the past year, we’ve continued to expand our ability to deliver a customer-centric digital commerce solution as a Salesforce Platinum ISV Partner and through strategic partnerships with leaders in digital innovation, including Adobe and Deloitte Digital,” Dalton furthered. “Our commitment to regular product enhancements, including our recent Spring ’17 release, will ensure we’re continuing to provide the fastest, most flexible B2B commerce platform on the market.”
