Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) September 18, 2008
Affinity, Inc today announced the successful deployment of a new advanced technology solution for a global enterprise client that will enable their executives to improve the effectiveness of their more than 5,000 member global sales and service organization.
The new system combines technologies including Siebel 8 CRM (Customer Relationship Management) from Oracle Corporation, SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) and PDM (Product data management). Due to the global nature and sophistication of the client, the system provides support for 30 languages, 40 currencies, and includes information for the client's portfolio of more than 500 products. Further, the new system is tightly integrated with more than 10 other mission critical systems and will deliver significant business benefits to the client including:
- Higher revenues from improved sales team synchronization, cross selling and management of large, complex, multi-location accounts;
- Better accuracy and intelligence from real-time sales entry and forecasting, and reporting to the client's executives to help them more rapidly assess performance and problems in their sales and support channels
- Lower costs and faster returns on new hires, employee reassignments, and territory changes and training
- Lower SG&A (Sales, general and administrative) and operating costs from higher employee productivity, lower headcount and coverage requirements, and more effective product rationalization and supply chains
Steven L. Schmidt, President, CEO and founder of Affinity Inc. said, "We're very pleased to be providing this new system for our client. It will enable our client to more successfully compete in rapidly changing and highly competitive global markets."
The client had previously attempted to provide this functionality into their company, but the results did not meet company targets. Affinity's Enterprise Systems Center of Competency (CoC) team is using ASAP (SM) (Affinity Solutions Architecture Process) to help deliver rapid results to the client. Affinity uses ASAP, an exclusive and integrated portfolio of methods and practices, to help clients realize high speed innovation.
Schmidt added, "Our client has been highly satisfied with the progress and the performance of the system, and has asked Affinity to continue to participate and extend the functionality of the system. We strongly believe that the combination of our engagement team and our ASAP framework has had a positive and significant on the performance of this engagement."
