Appirio has created this Lightning Bolt Solution to provide franchisors and franchisees, home offices and retail partners a shared, collaborative and transparent framework to manage the implementation and ongoing support of promotions.

Marketplace Onboarding Experience Lightning Bolt

The Marketplace Onboarding Experience modernizes the onboarding process. This Bolt leverages the latest Salesforce process automation technology – Lightning Flow – to guide users through what was once a complex set of interdependent steps and brings clarity and simplicity to the process.

Collaboration tools, such as the ability to create a team and work together, enable vendors to expedite the time it takes to complete onboarding, while an engaging, consumer-grade user interface allows vendors and retailers to see where in the journey a vendor is at and engage and connect with one another at a moment’s notice.

  • Onboarding Roadmap & Timeline: Provides a clear view of the path with at-a-glance insight into where they are on their journey.
  • Guided Workflows: Enable vendors to navigate with ease as Lightning Flow guides users through each step.
  • Progressive Unlocking: Customize the order in which the steps must be completed, and grant vendors more access as they unlock steps.
Employee Community Lightning Bolt

Happy, engaged employees are key to creating happy, satisfied customers. But employee engagement is about more than snacks and foosball tables. It’s about supporting employees through digital experiences that empower them to collaborate and work smarter together. Appirio’s Employee Lightning Bolt Solution is built using Salesforce Communities & Lightning – meaning you can roll out a consumer-grade, beautiful employee community with minimal development, and focus your efforts on evolving your community to meet your employee’s needs.
