Universal Containers (UC) is undergoing a full digital transformation and has chosen Salesforce as one of the main components. UC will use Sales Cloud for online activities, CPQ for quote generation and renewals. B2B Commerce for online orders through its partnerships and vendors, an external ERP for fulfillment and invoicing, and Marketing Cloud for customer outreach. UC wants to create fluidity between the entire application landscape, and an integration between systems is required.
The application is expected to be able to generate an order based on any of the channels outlined above, and be utilized in UC's outreach to its customers.
Where should a Solution Architect recommend the system of record (SOR) be for all orders going forward?
This will ensure that all orders are stored in a single, unified database, and will make it easier to track and manage orders across different channels. Additionally, Salesforce Order Objects have built-in features that make it easy to integrate with ERP systems, B2B Commerce, and Marketing Cloud, allowing UC to create the desired fluidity between its application landscape.
