Spotlighted at Dreamforce '19: Cloudinary's Integration With Salesforce Commerce Page Designer

Salesforce Dreamforce 2019 With Cloudinary

We are excited to be at Dreamforce 2019 (booth #1912) in San Francisco this week meeting with partners, customers, and industry colleagues on the power of digital experiences and dynamic media management.

We’re looking forward to demoing our new integrations with Salesforce Commerce Cloud , discussing the ways in which Salesforce customers can use Cloudinary with Heroku and sharing the benefits of leveraging Cloudinary with Salesforce Community Cloud and Salesforce Marketing Cloud.

In the eCommerce sector today, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who’s not in some way connected with the creation, management, and delivery of rich media. After all, successful eCommerce sites must consistently deliver on three key areas: fast page loads, optimal user experience, and high conversion rates. Critical to their success is media, with which a brand can set itself apart, engage with customers, and sell products. For those working with rich-media content, this is an exciting time–with artificial intelligence, machine learning, and smart data analytics enabling marketing and IT professionals to create and deliver better visual-rich, multichannel customer experiences faster than ever before.

Thousands of successful retailers and eCommerce brands relying on Cloudinary to manage, transform, and deliver images, videos, and other rich-media that enhance the end-user experience and boost revenue. With Cloudinary’s AI capabilities, marketers and designers can also easily automate common but often technical and time-consuming tasks, such as resizing images and videos, adding overlays, and adapting rich media to mobile devices to perfect the look and ensure brand consistency.

So, if you’re at Dreamforce this week, besides attending all the great keynotes, sessions, and parties, do stop by our booth between to say hi and stay for a demo.

Here’s what’s new and in the works for the Cloudinary-Salesforce partnership:

  • Over the summer we announced that our award-winning solution for video management had been certified by Salesforce and fully integrated with Salesforce Commerce Page Designer, enabling merchandisers and marketers to efficiently and dynamically create, manage, and deliver visual-rich eCommerce campaigns in real time. Additionally, integration of Page Designer with our image-management and Digital Asset Management (DAM) solutions are in progress and will be available soon.
  • Early next year, Commerce Page Designer users will be able to embed Cloudinary’s Media Library to more efficiently manage images and videos. Specifically, they’ll be able to select images and videos directly from the Cloudinary Media Library from within Salesforce Commerce Cloudinary.
  • We are updating both Cloudinary’s Salesforce Commerce Cloud Cartridge and Commerce Page Designer Cartridge for a faster and simpler process for editing and organizing images and videos. Stay tuned.
