As your Retail/E-commerce business grows, your technology landscape needs to adapt as well. Imagine using the same old legacy system which was in place when you were a few hundred employees lesser or churning less revenue. People administering it need to scale up as well. It could be a difficult ask for the existing team to scale up and become pros in new technology like Salesforce Commerce Cloud.
Salesforce has been a constantly improving tool, trying to address all its users’ pain points. Say you are E-commerce or Retail business using multiple Salesforce products, it would leave you in a fix, wondering which move you should make next to maximize your investment’s value. Though Salesforce Commerce Cloud is an easy to use End-to-End management product for E-commerce/Retail, you would still need a Commerce Cloud specialist to exploit its features and customize it to suit your business needs.
You may think your problems are unique and only your in-house team has extensive experience to bear. With the amount of Salesforce Commerce Cloud Implementationthat we have done, it’s highly likely that we’ve dealt with the same issues before. Tapping into that know-how is extremely valuable.
Here are some reasons you want to hire a consulting firm like Zivoke rather than building an in-house team.
A whole new world of Salesforce Geeks
You have an in-house team of Salesforce Engineers with a mix of expertise in CRM, Commerce Cloud and other products. You only tap the skills of these resources, however, if you hire a Salesforce consulting firm like Zivoke, you’re inheriting hundreds of skills set across a large team of Commerce Cloud Certified experts, system admins, developers, business analysts, architects and program managers who’ve seen successful mega-scale projects.
Losing Talent to Competition
Imagine having coached your in-house consultants on your business process, Technical Landscape & Salesforce org for months to finally let him go to your competitor. All the time and effort you spent is now lost to your competition with Jazzy offices and free lunch. The Salesforce ecosystem is very competitive. If a new and better opportunity arises, a consultant will quickly jump ship for more competitive pay. This never happens with Zivoke. Enhanced user adoption ensures that you will never see knowledge failure again. The knowledge of your environment and process is spread across the wide talent pool and its associated managers.
Outside consultants often have inside information on future releases of Salesforce, which can impact solution architecture.
Technology Transformation is key. Understanding the depth of what the product has to offer and translating it to suit your business needs brings about better ROI. However, there is this second aspect - Operational Transformation; which is purely ongoing. From getting to know the vision of the company and how IT aligns with it, creating better workflows, automating processes, and reducing time on mundane tasks to introducing tools to make life easier for operations and creating faster approval processes. These differ from business to business. Transforming your organization is a journey, not a destination!
