Implementation of CRM

Case Study
DHL Canon Tata Motors Aviva

Canon and CRM
Canon needed a comprehensive customer database that could be made available to front office personnel. It purchased and implemented a Siebel CRM package, which implemented a Call Center CRM strategy in the sales department, among other things. Information that was stored for a period of 15 years was used in an attempt to achieve customer satisfaction. Canon had 2200 users involved in its implementation. Overall improvement was seen in three main areas – Call Center, Sales and Service.

DHL Global Mail needed a CRM solution that could cater to a global network and ultimately provide a holistic view of the customer right across the globe. DHL used as its CRM platform in the dispatch and delivery of parcels, and business post etc. The CRM suite was installed simultaneously around the globe within six months and integrated with the existing systems to ensure data centralisation. It achieved an integrated approach to the customer worldwide and a single view of the customer as well.

Tata Motors and CRM
Tata Motors was looking for real-time availability of customer and product data from its entire dealer network, faster response to customer requests, increased productivity and revenue generation, and a system that would give it a 360-degree view of customers across all possible touch points. The solution jointly deployed by Oracle, SAP and IBM had been implemented in phases since 2003. The on-line CRM initiative now supports over 15,000 users, within the company and among its channel partners in India and abroad, to conduct all customer-facing transactions. Besides achieving the above objectives, the CRM package also helped in leveraging data to improve customer interactions and streamline product development and planning, which has helped Tata motors provide additional value-added services to customers.

Aviva and CRM
Aviva decided to implement a CRM suite even before it commenced its Indian operations. The idea was to have a better interface with customers. It also wanted to integrate its customer-facing departments. It picked Talisma from among four vendors after a stringent evaluation exercise. Aviva took six months to implement the e-CRM suite. It implemented all the e-CRM modules except for the chat module. Today there are 450 users of the e-CRM suite at the company. The e-CRM implementation enabled Aviva to tap the potential of the Indian insurance market by tailoring its products and services, and quickly analysing and adjusting its marketing initiatives
