Salesforce, a global provider of customer relationship management, has signed an agreement with Nippon Express South Asia and Oceania to expand its usage of the Salesforce Sales Cloud platform in 15 countries across the region, including Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, India, Singapore and Vietnam.

Nippon Express (South Asia and Oceania) Pte. Ltd. is a subsidiary of Nippon Express Group, a global logistics solutions provider based in Japan. As part of the company’s geo-diversification strategy for continued growth and competitive advantage, NX SAO sought to standardise its global sales processes and collaborate across teams more seamlessly. 

Prior to using Salesforce, NX SAO was managing its customer relationships at the individual country level which added complexity across its sales and marketing teams. With the implementation of Salesforce Sales Cloud, employees will now be able to manage its customers under a single platform and leverage data insights from a single source of truth to drive all customer interactions, including lead generation, acquisition and nurturing of new customers, as well as maintaining visibility on their pipeline and opportunities.
