Fuse’s multi-platform, digital commerce experience and flexible way of working suited dotdigital very well.
A swift evaluation phase to scope the best solution was followed by rapid technical development that opened up a new routes to market for dotdigital. Fuse worked closely with the dotdigital product and partnership team members to ensure technical, sales and marketing needs were addressed. By leveraging Fuse’s expertise with Salesforce Commerce Cloud, dotdigital were able to move from concept to launch in record time, paving the way for significant opportunities and growth.

Why did dotdigital call on Fuse’s expertise?
Expanding your market reach without increasing your headcount is the best of both worlds.
“Resources are always smaller than the roadmap requires. My team were already very busy looking after CRM integrations but certain enterprise platforms were on our radar. We worried, however, that we would not have the bandwidth for development here.” – Tristan Glenat, Principal Product Manager at dotdigital.
Working alongside Fuse engineers was particularly beneficial as they quickly spotted things that would have held up certification if dotdigital had tried to go through this process by themselves.
Increased enquiries around Salesforce Commerce Cloud compatibility meant that each day without an effective Salesforce integration really mattered.
“It’s a clear competitive advantage. An effective integration for our product can be make or break for us commercially in market. After all, clients would not willingly choose to pay additional fees to integrate our technology with their choice of eCommerce platform and now we have dramatically reduced that effort and timeline” – Justin Tyler Broomes, Head of Service Partnerships at dotdigital.
“Without Tryzens Fuse I’m not sure we would have been able to achieve what we did in the time that we did, at the cost that we did it for”
