New product, new partner
Containerships selected the SAP CRM solution, Cloud for Customer, which operates as a cloud service. ”The product practically sold itself. The solution actually offered a number of new features, not forgetting what is the most important – customer relationship management. We were also attracted by the maintenance of the system which does not require any technical expertise, allowing us to shape it as necessary,” says Kinnunen.
What we did:
- Support after go-live
- SAP Cloud for Customer
- Mobile platform
”We also asked SAP for their recommendations. You had another similar project underway, providing it with experience in the product. Above all, we were impressed by your competent professionals and good attitude,” says Jaana Kinnunen, describing the selection. The project was carried out using a flexible procedure where Containerships were responsible for project management and you were utilised in the implementation and support following go-live. ”We wanted you to offer its expertise in practical work. We ended up working together, with all the information necessary being transferred directly to Containerships. Thanks to competent people, the project was a true success,” Kinnunen adds. The project team included one key user from all operating areas of Containerships. These same individuals acted later as trainers within their respective areas. The project proceeded quickly, and the system was ready for use by the entire international sales organisation in only a few months.
The key functions of the new solution include the monitoring of customer encounters and the management of sales transactions. What is more, the system offers the maintenance of basic customer data, employee-specific goals, and monitoring at a monthly or annual level. ”Now, we have access to useful data at all levels. Overall, the system increases transparency as we are able to monitor in real time what our customers are doing in different countries,” Kinnunen says. ”Most importantly, the shared system enables shared processes – now every one of us works the same way.”
