Our team of approximately 30 developers worked on various projects to support the client's B2B and B2C business processes. This case study highlights the custom solutions provided by Blueflame Labs, addressing the client's unique challenges and delivering effective results.
Blueflame Labs partnered with the eyewear manufacturer to build multiple solutions, covering areas such as B2B and B2C commerce, sales management, marketing automation, appointment management, learning management, and customer service.

The client faced various challenges in their business processes, including the need for advanced customization beyond Salesforce's out-of-the-box features.

Solutions provided by Blueflame Labs
- B2B Commerce Cloud: We developed a fully customized solution within Salesforce's B2B Commerce Cloud, surpassing the limitations of standard features. Our solution allowed the client to manage backend product assignments, enhance filtering options, and enable advanced product visibility. Integration with their ERP system ensured continuous synchronization of master data. We also implemented additional features like virtual try-on, customization options, and slider filters on the product listing page.
- B2B Sales Cloud: Our team leveraged Salesforce's Sales Cloud to empower account executives and sales managers to track activities, maintain data for reporting, and enhance productivity. We developed custom solutions using accounts, events, and custom objects. Additionally, we created a Salesforce mobile app for account executives to track visits, make presentations, and integrate with the ERP and media hub.
- B2C Sales Cloud and Marketing Cloud: We enabled seamless tracking of B2C consumers from the client's website to Salesforce, utilizing custom APIs for data integration. This data was then leveraged in Salesforce Marketing Cloud to create personalized marketing campaigns and newsletters, enhancing customer engagement.
- B2C Appointment Management: Blueflame Labs created a custom appointment management system that facilitated logging, tracking, and management of appointments between end consumers and opticians. Using custom APIs, opticians could efficiently update and track appointments within the Salesforce portal.
- Learning Management System: We developed a learning management app to track tutorials and training completion for each optician. This system allowed capturing points for each session completed, with an opportunity for opticians to redeem these points for orders within the B2B portal. Integration with a third-party tool facilitated tutorial management, progress tracking, and key performance indicator (KPI) monitoring.
- B2B and B2C Service Cloud: All cases and inquiries raised through the client's website were seamlessly tracked within Salesforce. Cases related to shipments were updated in an external system, while other cases were addressed by the internal customer support agents using Salesforce's B2B and B2C Service Cloud.
The solutions provided by Blueflame Labs helped the eyewear manufacturer overcome their specific challenges and achieve significant outcomes. By implementing customizations, integrating with external systems, and leveraging Salesforce's capabilities, we enabled the client to streamline their B2B and B2C business processes, resulting in the following benefits:

The advanced product listing, filter functionalities, and streamlined checkout process improved the overall user experience. The flexibility provided by the custom solution enabled the client to handle complex product bundles, varied product visibility, and country-specific offerings effectively.
