  • Ability to drop activated forms into a Salesforce Lightning Flow to maximize user experience and reduce custom User Interface (UI) development.  
  • Rapid data validation, messaging, formulas and show/hide logic that deliver an immersive experience for employees and partner or customer community users alike.
  • Real-time call outs via REST that can be configured without code.
  • Ability to rapidly deploy end-to-end processes spanning multiple systems that leverage Salesforce Integration Cloud, Vlocity DataRaptor, and Vlocity Integration Procedures to integrate with and access back-office and legacy APIs.

By offering fully native and additive extensions on Salesforce and with Lightning Flow, Vlocity customers can execute a variety of functions within Vlocity’s industry apps such as guided buying flows, multi-step service flows, and single-step transactions.
