CRM Transformation with Salesforce Sales Cloud for a Logistic Client.

This case study discussed how Incepta helped a top North American logistics provider to deploy a strong Salesforce Sales Cloud platform. The Client wanted to update their Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system to overcome constraints affecting operational efficiency and expansion opportunities.

Objectives Salesforce Sales Cloud
  • We upgraded our client’s obsolete CRM system with a robust Salesforce Sales Cloud platform by replacing MS Dynamic, enabling them to optimize sales, marketing, and customer service for enhanced efficiency.
  • The new Salesforce Sales Cloud platform offers a strong foundation to meet our client’s growing business requirements and future expansion.
  • By consolidating customer information into one platform, our clients have achieved enhanced visibility and control, enabling them to deliver a more targeted and agile customer experience.
Client Salesforce Sales Cloud

Established in 1976, our client is a major player in the North American logistics and supply chain sector, providing a wide range of services throughout the continent. Acquired by TFI International in 2002, our client adds value to a broad network offering unmatched capabilities, resources, and extensive geographic coverage across North America.

Industry: Logistics Business

challenges
  • Our client’s current CRM was unable to cope with the increasing complexity of their business, hampering their ability to effectively meet customer needs.
  • The system lacked the flexibility to adapt to our client’s expanding operations and future growth plans.
  • Information was scattered across different systems, making it difficult to get a holistic view of their customers and streamline operations.
Solutions Salesforce Sales Cloud

Incepta’s team crafted a solution to develop a comprehensive Salesforce Sales Cloud implementation plan, encompassing:

  • Assessment & Planning: We conducted a comprehensive evaluation of the client’s current CRM setup, collaboratively defined their business goals, and outlined a migration strategy to ensure a seamless transfer of data and processes.
  • Data Migration & Cleansing: We extracted clean and accurate data from the client’s existing system, mapping it to Salesforce fields, and ensuring data integrity throughout the import process.
  • Configuration & Customization: We set up core Salesforce objects and customized them to reflect the client’s existing workflows and processes. This included fields, layouts, and record types.
  • Integration & Development: We assessed the need for integrations with other systems and developed custom integrations using APIs to connect Salesforce with existing data sources.
  • User Training & Adoption: We provided comprehensive training sessions, documentation, and resources to ensure user proficiency in the new platform. This included addressing any concerns or challenges during the transition process.
  • Testing & Go-Live: Our team performed rigorous User Acceptance Testing (UAT) to verify the solution met the client’s objectives, followed by a smooth go-live process with data migration and system deployment.
  • Post-Go-Live Support: Providing ongoing support to address any issues that might arise during the initial transition period.

Salesforce Sales Cloud Implementation for Streamlining Operations

Workflow Explanation (Sales Process):

  1. Leads are generated through web forms or manually entered into the system.
  2. Based on specific criteria, qualified Leads are converted to Opportunities.
  3. The DQM pricing team creates a Proposal for each Opportunity.
  4. If approved by the customer, the Inside Sales Rep establishes a Customer Account.
  5. Rejected proposals are marked as “Closed-Lost.”
  6. Upon Revenue Control Team approval, the Proposal is sent to the Customer (Related Opportunity ID gets added to the new Account).
  7. A nightly batch job automatically updates the Customer Account in the CRM.
  8. Once formalities are completed, the Opportunity is marked as “Closed-Won.”
