Thursday, January 10, 2019

Salesforce will be joined at NRF 2019 by retail customers and partners showcasing how they're transforming shopping and connecting commerce everywhere

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), the global leader in CRM, is empowering major retailers to transform shopping across every touchpoint and connect commerce everywhere.

For retailers to compete effectively and win the hearts, minds and wallets of modern consumers, they need a single view of customers across commerce, marketing and customer service. Salesforce provides retailers with a unified platform designed to drive integrated, intelligent and innovative shopping experiences wherever consumers interact with a brand--including mobile, web, social and store.

"The world of retail has become democratized," said Rob Garf, VP of Retail Strategy and Insights at Salesforce.

Salesforce allows retailers to be where their consumers are."

        communication a personal feel, and Service Cloud empowers Brunello
        Cucinelli employees to deliver the luxury service experiences expected
