Client Overview

Our client is a leading provider of laboratory supplies and equipment to educational, medical, industrial, and government research facilities. They specialize in consumable laboratory products and offer a wide variety of laboratory equipment, western blotters, PCR/qPCR, and cell culture products. The client relied on BigCommerce as their E-commerce platform and Salesforce as their CRM system, operating without integration between the two systems.

Business Problem

The client encountered several challenges by using Salesforce and BigCommerce separately, without integration:

1.

Manual Data Entry: Without integration, the client had to manually enter data between BigCommerce and Salesforce, resulting in duplicated efforts, wasted time, and increased risk of errors and inconsistencies.

2.

Disjointed Customer View: Customer data was scattered across BigCommerce and Salesforce, making it difficult to obtain a comprehensive view of customers. This disjointed view hindered effective customer relationship management and personalized communication.

3.

Inventory Management Challenges: Manual updates of inventory levels in both BigCommerce and Salesforce led to discrepancies and potential overselling or underselling of products. Lack of real-time inventory visibility caused operational inefficiencies and customer dissatisfaction.

4.

Inconsistent Pricing and Discounts: Without syncing quote and cart data, pricing and discount information may not be accurately reflected between BigCommerce and Salesforce, leading to inconsistencies in the final pricing presented to customers.

5.

Lost or Incomplete Quotes: The absence of quote synchronization between BigCommerce and Salesforce resulted in lost or incomplete quotes. Sales representatives had to manually recreate quotes in Salesforce, leading to time-consuming data entry and a lack of visibility into the entire quote history.

6.

Order Tracking and Fulfillment Challenges: Manual transfer of order information from BigCommerce to Salesforce caused delays, potential errors, and a lack of visibility in the fulfillment process. This affected order accuracy, customer satisfaction, and overall operational efficiency.

7.

Ineffective Sales and Marketing Alignment: The disjointed nature of BigCommerce and Salesforce hindered accurate tracking of marketing campaign effectiveness and sales attribution, limiting the client's ability to optimize their strategies based on comprehensive data insights.

8.

Lack of Automation: The absence of integration prevented the client from automating essential tasks and workflows, leading to increased manual effort, reduced efficiency, and missed opportunities for timely customer engagement.
