Moving from Scrappy to Scale: Digital Transformation Amidst Retail’s New Normal

In an incredible response to the health crisis, most retailers condensed their roadmap for digital transformation from years to weeks, uniting around the customer. They were scrappy — making quick decisions to provide the products and services customers needed — from supplying PPE to curbside pickup. As our industry continues this massive acceleration, retailers must [re]think the necessary path from scrappy to scale. Given that digital transformation is led by humans and not machines, Salesforce surveyed 500 executives globally and interviewed dozens more for a candid look inside their minds. This session will provide insights into how leaders responded and what the future of the industry looks like in the New Normal.

    Small and medium sized businesses (SMB) are always short of resources and can never afford to get bogged down in clerical work, or to miss a follow-up with a prospect or a customer.

Join us and one of our small business customers to find out how you can turbocharge your inbox with Salesforce.

    "As Apex Leaders took on more and more clients, they found their white glove service was not scaling well. Every client required many interactions with their internal team, making it difficult to grow the business. To solve this problem, Apex Leaders wanted to give their clients and partners the ability to self serve - get them the things they need in real time without having to pick up the phone to call or email. With that goal in mind, the Apex Leaders' Portal project was born.

    During this webinar, we will discuss the challenges of building technology from the perspective of a small business and how Apex Leaders overcame those challenges.

  • How to Price Your Products for Resilience in the New Economy Recorded: Jan 28 2021 60 mins
    Madhavan Ramanujam, Partner and Board Member, Simon Kucher Kylie Fuentes, VP, Product Management, Salesforce CPQ
    2020 is the year of the economic imperative. Now more than ever, you’re being called on to build resilience and flexibility into your business models, and to rethink how you build, price, and sell. But this webinar isn’t about convincing you to innovate. It’s about showing you how.

    The fact is that companies struggle to monetize their innovations consistently. 65% of products fail at a cost of $260 billion a year, and 83% of companies face downward pricing pressure. These figures come from Madhavan Ramanujam (nicknamed “the price whisperer”) of the consulting firm Simon Kucher.

    Join the conversation with Salesforce and Mr. Ramanujam, who distills the lessons of 10,000 projects over 30 years into practical actions you can take, so you can launch new revenue streams, remodel your products, and price for subscriptions—all the things that will determine whether you win or lose in the new economy.

    The themes we’ll cover include:

    Agile Product Development: Design your innovations around what customers need, value and are willing to pay for in short around the price
    Agile pricing: Discover the elusive “good price.” You’ll need an infrastructure for delivering and monitoring pricing guidance in real time, together with greater analytical horsepower and better data
    Economic resilience: The shift to subscription is a matter of survival. The good news is that transformation doesn’t need to be disruptive
