We have your solution?

THE SITUATION

In early 2018, Metallica envisioned a robust Salesforce multi-cloud solution featuring Commerce Cloud, OMS and Marketing Cloud in a matter of months. Blue Acorn was tasked with integrating the backend systems with Commerce Cloud, customizing the site to feature an enormous amount of content, developing special pages to feature digital download content, and creating permissions for content, merchandise, pre-sale tickets, free downloads, and contests.

THE SOLUTION

Blue Acorn delivered a highly-complex, fan-centric, content and merchandise site for one of the biggest bands in the world on a timeline most agencies would consider unachievable. Metallica and Blue Acorn worked together on a daily basis. Within a week of going live, Metallica launched a collaboration with Nixon Watches, announced they will be headlining Salesforce Dreamforce, introduced a new whiskey brand called Blackened Whiskey, and immediately headed out on their US tour.
