An Entire Solution for Commerce
In addition to both B2B and B2C Commerce Cloud, Salesforce has introduced Order Management, an application constructed on the core Salesforce platform. This application facilitates order fulfillment through automated workflows.
What is Salesforce Order Management? It’s a platform for managing orders, customer records, fulfillment, inventory visibility, payments and invoicing, and customer care.
Since Order Management is integrated with Salesforce CRM, it enables seamless integration with Service Cloud, assisting in handling customer requests and returns. Moreover, the Salesforce Platform can be leveraged to address any specific custom requirements you may have.
Use Order Management with Service Cloud to give service agents a single view of order and service history to ensure timely processing of requests.
Order Management is your central hub for handling all aspects of the order lifecycle, including order capture, fulfillment, shipping, payment processing, and service. The entire batch of data involved is all in one place, one single system of truth.
With the Order Management app:
- Customers can submit orders from any connected commerce channel, and then track and manage their orders throughout the order lifecycle.
- Merchants can manage order fulfillment, shipping, payment capture, invoicing, and service by using integrated and customizable and automated business processes and workflows.
- Service agents can access a master repository of all order-related information, see a global view of the entire order lifecycle, and process cancellations, returns, exchanges, reshipments, refunds, and discounts.
Salesforce Mobile App
The Salesforce mobile app is designed for easy data access on the go. You can view Salesforce Order Management record pages on the mobile app, but you can’t access its console features, like screen flows.
Use Order Management to automate and manage the order lifecycle from order capture through fulfillment and post-fulfillment service. You can also store data for orders that are managed outside of Order Management.
Order Management objects, together with existing objects, represent the elements of an order as the order progresses through the order lifecycle. The process for creating records in Order Management depends on your storefront. For example, if you use Salesforce B2C Commerce, the B2C Commerce Integration imports order data into Order Management. The terms “item” and “product” are used interchangeably throughout Order Management. Usually, technical areas like APIs and flow actions use “item,” while the user interface uses “product.”
Order Management works with Salesforce Flow, which makes it easy for you to create manual and automated functions. We provide out-of-the-box flow templates for processes such as order summary creation, placing orders on behalf of shoppers, order fulfillment, and order servicing.

What is the difference between CRM and order management?
A customer relationship management (CRM) is a tool that handles customer data like contact information and past purchases. On the other hand, an order management system (OMS) tracks orders and automates order management tasks.
