Thunder Announces New Offering of Salesforce Data Cloud

A Thunder-exclusive data-driven solution that optimizes both Marketing and Services operations

SAN FRANCISCO, May 20, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Thunder, a next generation Salesforce and Cloud consulting, implementation and managed services company, announced they are now offering service to implement Salesforce Data Cloud.

The Salesforce Data Cloud offering will help Marketing and Services operations mitigate cost and complexity for customers when deploying Salesforce Data Cloud.

"We know that Salesforce Data Cloud is the foundation of CRM and AI success," explained Carter Wigell, Thunder's CEO. "Working in tandem with Salesforce, our offering of Data Cloud provides an actionable single pane of glass that teams can use to make smarter decisions, power automation, and build trusted AI. And the results speak for themselves."

Thunder is proud to be the integration partner behind the recent success of Turtle Bay Resort. With Salesforce and the Thunder solution, Turtle Bay brings together unified guest data from every source into a single, connected CRM - providing a 360-degree view of every customer. With AI built right into the platform, the resort can anchor personalized recommendations in real-time to keep guests coming back year after year. In fact, since implementing Data Cloud, Turtle Bay has been able to increase repeat bookings by 20% through AI-generated service replies and recommendations. See the complete success story here.

Thunder has invested in tailoring the Unified Console accelerator to various industries to solve specific challenges across high tech, media, retail, hospitality and manufacturing verticals. To solidify their commitment, Thunder has brought in Lauren Noonan (VP, Practice & Alliance GTM), Koren Betty (Data & Marketing Cloud Director) and Chris Beukenkamp (VP, Data Solutions) to create a powerhouse leadership team.

"Koren Betty has been working with Data Cloud since its C360 Audiences days and has successfully delivered many Data Cloud projects prior to joining Thunder. She led the Turtle Bay team and was instrumental to their success," said Noonan. "Chris brings deep enterprise experience, helping lage corporations architect their data strategy. He has a knack for making the complex very simple and easy to understand. Both together are a force, or a Thunder gale wind if you will, to our clients to accelerate their data & AI success."
