With the Salesforce platform at the core of its experience layer, Australia Post says it can now enable every customer-facing team member to support its merchant and consumer customers – from sales onboarding, through to servicing and support via contact centres, post offices, to Posties – and provide every customer with a consistent and personalised experience.

“Establishing our key strategic technology platforms is a crucial first step for the transformation of our digital customer experience,” says Michael McNamara, Executive General Manager, Enterprise Services at Australia Post.

“Investment in cutting-edge technology is crucial in ensuring we set the business up for success as we continue to simplify and modernise our operations.
