In short, we’re helping customers build premium commerce experiences with enhanced scale, flexibility and speed. Whether you’re at the event or following along from your office, here’s your one-stop-shop for all the big Commerce Cloud announcements.

Build commerce experiences faster with added flexibility

To build commerce experiences for every channel, brands need a commerce platform that gives them the agility and flexibility to deliver trusted commerce at scale. The Salesforce Commerce platform does just that. Commerce templates provide merchandisers with a reference architecture and declarative builders for the optimal storefront experience, and powerful API-first headless commerce services and developer tools empower IT teams with the resources to build commerce experiences anywhere.

Innovations announced today at NRF include:

New: Salesforce Order Management unlocks omni-channel
