Here’s some of the highlights.

The Salesforce World Tour Sydney event was a great success, with many attendees joining both in person at the ICC Sydney and through the live stream of the keynote. The event brought together a diverse group of trailblazers who were interested in discovering innovative solutions to help solve their business challenges, regardless of their company size or industry.

WorldTour showcased the collaborative spirit of the Salesforce ecosystem and highlighted the company's continued interest in the Australia and New Zealand region. Senior executives traveled from around the world to attend, indicating that this region is a key area for growth.

During the event, AppGenie’s Senior Solutions Lead Mark Townsend and BDM Brendan Walsh met with clients and partners to discuss how we can support them. These include;

R.M Williams Cracking Whips Using Salesforce!

After the keynote presentation, we witnessed some of the impressive achievements of the Trailblazer community.

For example, R.M. Williams has placed a strong emphasis on their customers, making them the core of everything they do. The company provides value to customers at every stage of their purchasing journey, such as by sending tailored notifications about the leather being used to make their boots and helpful information on how to care for their purchases.

By adopting this customer-first approach, R.M. Williams has reaped remarkable benefits, including a 42% reduction in phone calls and a 176% increase in order value from email campaigns.
