New York and Paris – March 4, 2019 – Capgemini today announced the launch of the new Salesforce Fullforce, a unified commerce solution for grocery.[1]

a solution designed to help grocers capture loyalty in the rapidly expanding online grocery market by improving the ordering experience. Developed by Lyons Consulting Group (LYONSCG), part of Capgemini, the Unified Commerce Solution for Grocery integrates e-commerce with marketing and customer service systems to help grocers personalize offers and deliver groceries faster.

Capgemini research shows that the level of online ordering will increase rapidly. 38 percent of U.S. customers already shop online from retailers (at least once or more times a week), and that’s expected to grow to 52 percent by 2021. Additionally, 40 percent of consumers now rank delivery services as a “must. have” feature for food and grocery shopping. And one in five consumers (20 percent) say they are willing to switch retailers if delivery services are not available.

Unified Commerce Solution for Grocery helps retailers realize their business goals and address the needs of the modern grocery shopper by providing e-commerce, marketing and customer service capabilities through Salesforce Commerce Cloud, Marketing Cloud and Service Cloud.

In addition, the solution includes MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform™, which helps grocers integrate legacy data and applications, including point-of-sale, financial and inventory systems, loyalty, promotion engines and more. Together, the solution is designed to help grocers increase speed to market, provide a comprehensive strategy, integrate systems with customer-facing digital technologies, and implement new, innovative technologies to improve the customer experience. Capabilities include:

  • Changes to previously placed orders are confirmed prior to shipment.
  • Sort, search and filter products based on previous orders.
  • Easily manage customer preferences by adding and saving favorite grocery items to the customer profile for quick reordering.
  • Shop location-specific inventories with real-time product selection, pricing, and delivery time exploration.
  • Simplifying and personalizing email marketing campaign deployment.

“With the online grocery market poised to grow significantly over the next few years, now is an exciting time to look for new, innovative ways to reach consumers and create truly differentiated digital shopping experiences.” said Rich Lyons, CEO of LYONSCG, part of the Capgemini Group. “This solution can help grocers quickly and cost-effectively deploy technology to fulfill orders, build loyalty and ultimately transform their business.”

The Unified Commerce Solution for Grocery further expands Capgemini’s unique combination of capabilities, alliances and expertise to deliver technology and business solutions for grocers and retailers on their transformational journey. It expands on last year’s launch of three Salesforce solutions for retailers and grocers.

“We are thrilled that Capgemini has once again been recognized as a Salesforce Fullforce Solution Partner and is helping companies in the grocery industry connect with their customers in completely new and innovative ways.” said Don Lynch, SVP, Global Alliances, Salesforce. “We work closely with Salesforce Fullforce Solution partners to ensure our clients benefit from Capgemini’s industry-proven expertise with the Salesforce platform.”
