Manufacturing (Steel & Cement)
Helped developing a future-ready sales system
A large business conglomerate that deals across sectors, including steel, energy, minerals, port and infrastructure, and cement, desired to have a future-ready CRM system to empower their sales users to have better customer engagement and to improve overall sales and monitoring.
The client wanted to upgrade its sales systems (key account managers [KAM]) as it had a number of drawbacks, including a manual method for signing MoUs and the lack of digital approvals. They have heavily relied on manual inspections for processing documents and also struggled with the lack of real-time tracking of consignments.
The organisation did not have a 360-degree customer view to draw insights from and plan accordingly. KAM did not allow for updation or access to real-time customer information on the field. Therefore, it needed a human-led and tech-powered approach.
PwC’s community of solvers implemented Sales, Service and Community Cloud with the Salesforce 1 mobile app having CRM functions for lead management, automated assignment of leads, account and contact management, MoU Management, customer complaint processing, visit planning and reporting etc. This paved the way towards establishing sustained business outcomes for the client.
