The following use cases will give you an idea of how Salesforce 360 Data Manager could be useful for your business. Let’s dive into a few Data Manager use cases using the example business of a telephone service provider.

Sales and Marketing

At the core of any successful marketing strategy is the ability to provide solutions to a customer’s problem. However, if your sales and marketing teams don’t have any prior knowledge of the customer, including data about events and interactions, your strategy will lack focus. With Data Manager providing a universal customer profile, your sales and marketing teams will know how to better pitch solutions and products. 

For example, a customer that has previously called support for issues relating to their smartphone’s function might be due for a device upgrade. This will both solve their problem and get them a deal on an upgraded phone. If the sales team has access to the customer’s full profile, including previous support calls related to this issue, they can make targeted recommendations that will benefit the customer. A universal profile means stronger leveraging power. 

Customer Support and Service

The Customer 360 Data Manager can track, record, and exchange data and events across multiple systems and channels. This function is an innovation that will help customers support, and service teams deliver more effective solutions. To solve a problem, it’s essential to have a full picture of the issue. 

When it comes to things like technical support or advanced features of your product, customers might not have the background knowledge to best describe the issue. As a result, customer support technicians must guess at the problem and troubleshoot it from the dark. This doesn’t have to be the case. 

For example, a universal customer profile that can be shared across teams can show that the customer recently upgraded their phone and may be experiencing issues related to the transition from an older device to a new device. Using the information provided in the customer profile, a support team can improve its services’ speed, efficiency, and effectiveness.

Personalization

Personalization is not just a key element of a successful customer relationship strategy, it’s also an effective way to improve customer experience across your entire company. Whether a customer calls in for support, to make a purchase, or make an inquiry, Their customer profile record the data for your business. All that’s left is determining how you will use the data to better serve your customers. 

With Salesforce Customer 360 Data Manager, you can create a seamless customer experience by delivering personalized engagement based on data pulled from the customer’s profile. This can even be as small as thanking long-term customers for their continued loyalty to your company when they reach out with requests.
