In 2009, U.S. Bank replaced several legacy systems with Salesforce Sales Cloud, Service Cloud and Marketing Cloud to provide its customer-facing employees with a single, holistic view of customer data.

For example, based on the financial goals, center-of-influence relationships, life events and other variables for each customer, Salesforce Einstein will provide relationship managers and loan officers with next-best-action recommendations, leading to higher levels of customer satisfaction and retention.
