Challenge

Tegeta sales managers were previously using CRM based on SAP ERP solution. The platform doesn’t specialize in customer management, that’s why the software didn’t have enough options to get the whole picture of the sales cycle.

Managers had to register data in CRM and Excel instead of using a single system. That lengthened order processing and didn’t permit executives to monitor employees' actions.

Tegeta has used SAP since 2009. Considering the positive effects of the software, executives decided to find a SAP solution for B2B sales. SAP Sales Cloud was selected. The service streamlines and automates critical selling processes and provides real-time analysis.

At the time of the project, AtlantConsult was one of the rare companies in CIS that had already worked with the solution. For that reason, Tegeta chose AtlantConsult as a contractor.

The client delegated the task to integrate customer pipeline, receivables, and tender management processes into the SAP Sales Cloud.


Solution


Sales funnel
 AtlantConsult developers divided sales stages into 2 modules.

1) Corporate Sales module: has steps from client discovery to purchase.

2) Current Clients module: sets up tasks to increase sales to existing customers. If a client buys less, the CRM reminds a manager of him.

With Sales Cloud, managers keep in touch with customers through different channels: calls, meetings, SMS, emails, surveys.

In the system executives arrange the work of account managers, e.g. give tasks and schedule appointments.

Receivables
 AtlantConsult specialists set up debt and payment delay thresholds. If the client exceeds one of the rates, the CRM alerts manager to remind a customer of a debt. If after 3 months the debtholder doesn’t pay, an executive takes over the task.
Sales Cloud composes lists of customers assumed to have a debt in the future. The program evaluates risks basing on the client’s size of loan and turnover.
 Tenders
AtlantConsult automated tender management from completing an application to signing a contract. Implemented into the CRM reminder configuration helps managers to meet deadlines.
