Connect, Communicate, and Collaborate with Salesforce Community Cloud

The best companies stand out because of their customer service. You can enhance customer service with Salesforce Community Cloud. It makes it effortless to engage with the people who matter to your organization.

Community Cloud is a social platform for Salesforce that lets your organization connect, communicate, and collaborate with customers, donors, partners, and employees.

What Can Salesforce Community Cloud Do for My Organization?

Just by integrating Community Cloud seamlessly with Salesforce, you’ll transform all of your relationships.

Salesforce Community Cloud is an online portal that provides these benefits:

  • Saves time: Customers and partners can get answers quickly with publicly-posted questions and answers. Think of it as an interactive knowledge base.
  • Provides better customer service: Since the community contains answers to common questions, your customer support team can focus on more complex problems.
  • Engages customers: Your customers and partners can learn from each other by sharing ideas on how to make the most of your product or service.
  • Boosts productivity: Everything that’s shared in the community is easier to track and access than a bunch of emails filed in different places. Someone may have information in an email that no one else can access.
  • Grows sales: You and your partners will be able to share contacts, leads, and data. This prevents channel conflicts, provides partners with access to product experts, and permits you to share customizable dashboards and reports.
  • Allows access from anywhere: Community Cloud works with desktops, tablets, and mobile devices. Users can get the information they need, when they need it.

You have limitless possibilities as you can add these features to your community:

  • Self-registration
  • Reports and dashboards
  • Custom applications
  • Order management
  • Case escalation
  • Chatter collaboration
  • Salesforce Files

Build Engaging Communities with Salesforce Community Cloud

Whether you use community for sales, services, or both, we can customize it any way you want. Here are some things you can do with Community Cloud:

  • Enhance content management: Optimize your community content with tag-based content search, content sharing based on rules, and license requirements.
