Salesforce Customer 360 is a way to unite all your teams—marketing, sales, commerce,
service, and IT—on one integrated platform with a single view of your customer, helping you
grow relationships with your customers and your employees.
Your teams can access the information they need to do their best work. This increases
collaboration and alignment among everyone, which leads to more connected, personalized
experiences for your customers and helps you build stronger relationships with them. It also
results in more satisfied employees, who are freed up from repetitive tasks so they can focus on doing their best, and most rewarding, work.
By keeping your team connected on a single, scalable platform, you’ll be able to make real
improvements in every phase of your customer’s journey. Marketing becomes more personal
with the ability to listen to customers and engage with them across multiple channels with
Following up on sales leads becomes faster and easier with tools that
help you manage information, automate processes, and gain insights from real-time analytics.
Ecommerce becomes more effective as you unify data, personalize interactions, and grow
revenue across every channel. Customer service becomes more rewarding as agents gain the
ability to know each customer and resolve issues faster.
Here are some of the most common ways a Customer 360 approach in the Communications industry help our clients achieve their goals:
“Bringing teams together, across locations and departments by connecting
everyone to a shared workspace filled with helpful tools.
Using data to create more relevant marketing messages and delivering them to consumers when they’re most likely to buy.
Automating repetitive customer service agent tasks, freeing them up to help customers when
one-on-one contact is required.”
From what we have seen working with companies large and small across multiple industries, is the common misconception that Customer 360 is only for large companies. While certainly powerful enough to handle the challenges of a major enterprise, Customer 360 is also extremely flexible.
Few would argue about the importance of effective CRM in today’s marketplace. Some
companies see it as a challenge, as they struggle to keep up with customer expectations. But
those companies using Customer 360 are discovering new opportunities in CRM, forming
stronger relationships with their customers than ever before and fostering enduring loyalty.
