Most commerce solutions are tied to back-office process and ERP systems. Integration with modern platforms can be difficult, expensive and may not be very user-friendly. Leveraging both 7Summits community solutions and CloudCraze commerce technology, businesses can deliver an outstanding buying experience on Salesforce, the global leader in CRM. In doing so, businesses are able to increase online revenue while staying connected to customers. The platform is fully scalable, making it an excellent solution for companies positioned for growth.

“At 7Summits we are very selective about the partnerships we enter into. Formally partnering with CloudCraze was natural and easy not just because it’s a commerce solution native to Salesforce, but also because of the strong cultural similarities between our organizations,” said David Blue, Senior Vice President, 7Summits. “Our clients rely on us to develop strategies that solve tough business challenges within their organization and we believe delivering an outstanding user experience for their partners and customers sits at the center of that. CloudCraze shares that same mindset.”
