In today’s B2B landscape, fostering strong and lasting customer relationships is paramount to success. Salesforce B2B Commerce empowers you to deliver a seamless buying experience, but what about fostering ongoing engagement and building a loyal customer base? This is where Salesforce Experience Cloud comes in, providing the tools to create dynamic B2B customer portals that strengthen your B2B relationships. 

What is Salesforce Experience Cloud? 

Salesforce Experience Cloud is a cloud-based platform that allows businesses to build branded digital experiences for various audiences. In the context of B2B Commerce, Salesforce Experience Cloud plays a crucial role in enabling the creation of secure and interactive customer portals. 

Salesforce B2B Customer Portals: A Hub for Engagement 

Salesforce B2B customer portals built with Salesforce Experience Cloud serve as a central hub for communication and collaboration between your business and your B2B customers (and potentially suppliers). Here’s what functionalities a B2B customer portal can offer: 

  • Account Management: Customers can access and update account information, manage user permissions, and view order history. 
  • Order Tracking and Management: Customers can track the status of shipments, download invoices, and potentially reorder products. 
  • Knowledge Base and Support: The portal can house a comprehensive knowledge base with articles, FAQs, and tutorials to address customer inquiries and provide self-service options. 
  • Community Features: Facilitate discussions and forums where customers can connect with each other, share best practices, and engage with your brand on a deeper level.

The Benefits of B2B Customer Portals in Salesforce  

Integrating Salesforce B2B customer portals built with Salesforce Experience Cloud into your B2B Commerce strategy offers a multitude of advantages: 

  • Enhanced Customer Engagement: Portals provide a dedicated space for ongoing interaction, fostering stronger customer relationships and loyalty. 
  • Improved Customer Satisfaction: Self-service options and a centralized knowledge base empower customers to find answers independently, leading to higher satisfaction. 
  • Increased Operational Efficiency: By deflecting routine inquiries to the portal, you free up your team to focus on more complex customer needs. 
  • Valuable Customer Insights: Portal activity data can provide valuable insights into customer behavior and preferences, allowing you to refine your B2B strategies. 


By leveraging Salesforce B2B Commerce alongside Experience Cloud, you can create dynamic B2B customer portals that empower customer engagement, streamline operations, and ultimately drive business growth. Experience Cloud transforms your B2B commerce platform from a transactional storefront into a thriving community hub, fostering stronger relationships and propelling your business towards long-term success.
