commercetools vs. Salesforce

How commercetools wins against Salesforce

The main difference between Salesforce and commercetools is the ability to support your business goals with custom eCommerce solutions. Salesforce is monolithic at its core, which translates to hard-to-adapt systems. In contrast, the foundation of commercetools is built on a composable infrastructure, so your commerce solution can grow with your changing business needs.
