Focus on E-commerce
In the past few years, E-commerce has become a key sales channel for companies in all industries. This trend was accelerated by the Covid-19 lockdowns. The sales platforms help companies increase sales volume and reduce costs. A key aspect of developing a B2B or B2C commerce platform is the customer experience it provides. Businesses have realized that people buy from people and that excellent customer experience is extremely important for building customer loyalty. Implementing platforms like Salesforce increases profitability.
“Salesforce has been leading the E-commerce solutions business for many years and is the Number 1 software, acknowledged by Gartner, Forbes, IDC, etc. in the same way as it is recognized as a leader in Marketing, Sales, and Service. E-commerce was the only missing part of our Salesforce portfolio, and it was important to add this to our offering”, says Vuchkov.
“We believe that with our extensive Salesforce Commerce Cloud experience with global brands from Asia, Europe, and the Americas, we can contribute to the digitalization of B2B and B2C sales for companies and be a leader in the region in offering such solutions”, explains Georgi Zapryanov, Managing Partner at C4 Nexus.
The first step of the company’s journey starts with a specialized e-commerce webinar „The New e-Commerce Trendsetters“ (B2B, Headless, Marketplace), in Bulgaria and Romania, which will be held on November 15 (Tuesday) at 3 pm CET. Registration is open, and the event is free of charge: https://event.next-consult.com/ the-new-e-commerce-trendsetters
The decision to combine forces between Next Consult and C4 Nexus came naturally. Both Emil and Georgi recognize their new partner as a leader in their domain, and in providing Salesforce’s solutions. They also highlight the good bond they have between the two teams.
“This partnership should allow us to become an indisputable leader in digital transformation, not only in our region but in CEE in the mid-term”, Emil Vuchkov highlights. Next Consult is a well-established and successful Salesforce consulting partner and reseller. The digital and business transformation consultancy has an extensive background in implementing management practices and optimizing business processes, designing, and implementing different business software solutions such as ERP, CRM, BI, RPA, etc.
For over a decade, the team behind C4 Nexus has specialized in building and managing Salesforce Commerce Cloud-based solutions and has fueled the growth of 3 of the top 5 most successful Salesforce Commerce Cloud clients of all time.
