Accelerators speed up implementation of Salesforce B2B Commerce Cloud projects

“Being able to apply XCentium’s considerable B2B Commerce experience to build the accelerators, and in turn seeing the concrete difference they make to our customers is a very gratifying experience,” shared Thomas Wagner, Vice President of Commerce and Salesforce Practice Director at XCentium.

XCentium, a full-service digital consultancy firm and a leader in the digital eCommerce industry, today announced they have released 20 accelerators for Salesforce B2B Commerce Cloud, which will enhance productivity and speed up implementation of commerce initiatives on this B2B Commerce Cloud platform.

Salesforce B2B Commerce Cloud is a cloud-based business to business commerce solution that is fully integrated with the Salesforce platform. That integration gives B2BCommerce cloud unparallel access to all Salesforce products from Sales and Service Cloud to Einstein AI and Marketing Cloud. As a B2B Commerce solution, this platform stands alone in its breadth and capability. The B2B Commerce Accelerators have been developed based on XCentium’s deep experience delivering commerce solutions on the Salesforce platform. Not only do accelerators provide customers with system implementation efficiencies, in the case of the RMA module and Large Shopping Cart, they provide functionality that does not exist natively in B2B Commerce Cloud.

Realizing the power and of Salesforce accelerators, XCentium is determined to lead the way in the development of these productivity multipliers. Tom Nguyen and Teja Yarlagadda, both architects on the XCentium Salesforce team, have spearheaded this development effort for the past two years.

“Being able to apply XCentium’s considerable B2B Commerce experience to build the accelerators, and in turn seeing the concrete difference they make to our customers is a very gratifying experience,” shared Thomas Wagner, Vice President of Commerce and Salesforce Practice Director at XCentium.

XCentium’s accelerators released today are designed to offer unique functionality and improvements for Salesforce B2B Commerce Cloud implementations, providing ecommerce functionality that help to engage with customers and sell, operate storefronts more efficiently, optimize the buyer’s commerce experience and evolve the seller’s commerce strategy. These Salesforce B2B Commerce Cloud accelerators include:

Engage and Sell:

Quick Order Component
XCentium’s quick order component can handle more rows than the equivalent out-of-the-box component. In addition, this component supports multiple units of measure per line item during quick order.

Order File Upload Component
Allows buyers to upload CSV files and automatically convert the file to a shopping cart, drastically reducing manual entry time.

Extended Order Grid Component
Many ERP systems support publication of “Available To Promise” data. The extended order grid can display these values and support calendar grid based ordering.

Shared Cart Component
Unique to XCentium, the shared cart component allows buyers to fill a cart and a supervisor to approve/execute the SAME cart.

Extended Base Template
A special base template for B2B Commerce Cloud to encompasses best UI/UX practices

Operate more efficiently:

Tax Extension
This extension offers prebuilt integration between B2B Commerce Cloud and Avalara, as well as Vertex.

Payment Processor Module
This accelerator supports Authorize.NET, Paymetric, PayPal, Cybersource and Chargent, saving considerable integration and implementation time.

Shipping Extension
This extension provides a prebuilt integration between B2B Commerce Cloud and the FedEx web service.

Address Verification Component
This component integrates B2B Commerce Cloud address data entry for shipping, billing, registration etc., with the USPS address verification service to assure data cleanliness.

Optimize the commerce experience:

Enhanced Discount Engine
Merchandizers do not have time to individually pick products to group together for discount purposes. This enhanced discount engine allows the merchandizer to describe characteristics of products and the engine will automatically generate the appropriate pool of discounted merchandize. As inventory changes, the discount engine automatically identifies new products that are eligible for either discount or benefit selection.

RMA Component
B2B Commerce Cloud does not ship with an RMA module. XCentium provides this accelerator to create a Service Cloud case for returns authorization, or even to send the data directly into the ERP.

Integration Framework
The integration framework provides pre-built functionality to import CSV files into Salesforce Staging Objects and from there into Salesforce / B2B Commerce Core Objects.

Availability Extension Module
Originally designed to work hand in hand with the Extended Order Grid, this module can be added to any project in order to provide Quantity on Hand + Available to Promise / Available to Ship functionality across multiple warehouses.

Evolve the sellers commerce strategy:

Very Large Cart Component (3000 products)
The very large cart component was designed to overcome the size limitations inherent to the out-of-the-box cart. XCentium’s cart can handle thousands of products.

My Document View
This component extends B2B Commerce Cloud to show Salesforce “My Documents” in the Account / Profile section of the web.

Pricing Engine Extension Module
Pricing extension allows leveraging OOTB, custom rules or calling external services / ERP for pricing logic.

Entitlement Extension Module
This module supports enhanced customer segmentation and personalization code.

Notification Component
For customers who have Salesforce Marketing Cloud, the Notification Component provides connectivity between B2B Commerce and Marketing Cloud.

Locale Switcher Component
The locale switcher lets the buyer change the language for a storefront display with one button click.

Google Map Locator Component
Most frequently used in a B2B2C scenarios, a consumer can type their zip code and the Google Map Locator component will list all applicable retail locations nearby. The retail locations are correlated to Salesforce accounts in the B2B system.
