The past two years have been a game changer for commerce. During that time, global same-site sales rose 44% for B2C businesses and 95% for B2B brands. The momentum continues: according to new Salesforce commerce research, 69% of surveyed leaders are investing in new digital channels. 

As supply chain issues and operating costs rise across industries amid a changing technology landscape, connecting with your customers is harder than ever. Brands are doing more with less, and businesses are now looking to trusted partners for help building the best customer experiences. 

This is where Salesforce’s vast array of partners steps in. 

To help companies grow faster and more efficiently, Salesforce is helping bring together connected omni-channel experiences across multiple industries. We have one of the largest ISV marketplaces, with a robust ecosystem of 260-plus partners spanning over 35 categories. We also have thousands of cutting-edge apps that have been developed by our partners on the Salesforce platform.

At this year’s Commerce Partner Awards, Salesforce is honoring the work our partners are doing to transform digital commerce experiences.
