B2B eCommerce solution to support Salesforce’s developing role in the global commerce economy
CHICAGO, Nov. 19, 2015— CloudCraze™, an enterprise eCommerce platform provider built natively on the Salesforce Platform, will play a role in contributing to the Salesforce ecosystem, which is projected to provide one million jobs and add $272 billion to local economies by the end of 2018, by being a leader in its developing eCommerce offerings.
The Salesforce ecosystem, which consists of the company’s partners and customers, currently produces 2.8 times the revenue of Salesforce itself, with expectations to grow 3.7 times as large as Salesforce. As Salesforce’s only enterprise-class eCommerce partner, CloudCraze has made significant contributions to this economic impact and changed the way Salesforce users engage in commerce. The platform’s unique architecture native on Salesforce enables companies to implement scalable eCommerce capabilities through their CRM four times faster and at one-fifth the cost of traditional, ERP-based systems.
CloudCraze is making major investments in its eCommerce offerings, which will expand the Salesforce ecosystem significantly. By deploying eCommerce on Salesforce, B2B companies can centralize their CRM and eCommerce solution in one collaborative platform.
“Salesforce has created its own industry—a community and ecosystem that helps partner businesses capitalize on one another’s strengths and grow synonymously,” said Chris Dalton, CEO of CloudCraze. “We are proud to be part of such an important movement of cloud innovation and contribute to business growth and employment in local economies in Chicago and across the world.”
Since August, CloudCraze increased its headcount by 30 percent at its Chicago headquarters as a part of this eCommerce industry growth. The company will expand its product development, sales and marketing teams in the coming months.
“This will be a major year of growth for CloudCraze,” Dalton furthers. “We’ve added several industry veterans to our executive team in 2015 and are excited to use that momentum to continue to grow and expand the Salesforce ecosystem.”
CloudCraze delivers enterprise-class cross-channel eCommerce on Salesforce that is four times faster and one-fifth the cost of traditional eCommerce applications. CloudCraze is built natively on the Salesforce Platform so clients can deploy mobile storefronts quickly, generate online revenue in weeks, and easily scale for growth. In a single Salesforce instance, CloudCraze shares data and processes across eCommerce and CRM and it’s all easily managed through the point-and-click Salesforce interface. CloudCraze is working with clients like Coca-Cola, Barry Callebaut, Avid and Zimmer Dental.
