You Need to Know More about Customer 360 by Salesforce
By Swatil Binte Mahmud, Lava Protocols
I shouldn’t tell you that technology is ever-changing and evolving. You know that already. Look at the computer you are using, the phone in your pocket with everything you need at the tip of your fingertips, or that smartwatch telling you that you need to get up because you have been sitting for too long. Okay, perhaps, only my smartwatch is saying that because I cannot walk and write blogs. But you already know all of this; whether you like it or not, technology is everywhere. This is because it simply makes our lives easier. We survived the pandemic because of technology and how quickly the world adapted to it. Honestly, I am happy to work from home and save time by not sitting in traffic. But there is more to it. And if you are a business owner, you know how world-class technology by Salesforce can make your life smoother.
Let’s talk about Salesforce Customer 360 today because we know that customers are the heart of any business. Customer 360 gives you and your employees a single view of your customers. You can be in any part of the world and your customer in another; you would still have a 360-degree view of your customer as if they are sitting next to you and talking.
Listen up, Sales, Marketing, and Services Teams!
Your sales, marketing, and services teams interact more with your customers than any other employee in your company. They take your products to your customers, sell them, talk to customers, and ensure they come back for more. This is why you need Salesforce Customer 360 for all three teams to get customer data from every step of their journey captured in one accessible place. This shared view enables these three core teams to deliver quality and personalized experiences and create trusted relationships with customers.
Sales Cloud by Salesforce allows your Sales team to control your sales pipeline, from prospecting to sale. This also allows you to automate tedious tasks to enable your sales team to concentrate more on selling. Customer 360 is also an accessible platform that allows your teams to achieve success from anywhere in the world.
With Marketing Cloud by Salesforce, you can give your customers the services they want and deserve. You can also receive live campaign data to monitor which marketing assets customers engage with most. This will allow you to optimize your campaign and keep and discard things from the campaign accordingly. The marketing cloud will save you time and money and make your marketing campaigns more effective.
Service Cloud by Salesforce is fast and efficient. When a customer calls your customer service about an issue, your team won’t have to waste time figuring out details about the customer and their purchasing history. With Service Cloud, your service agent can look up any information about the customer within seconds. This means they will also respond to your customer quickly!
