Cape Town, Western Province, South Africa, 2009/02/10 - PIC Solutions, the leading credit risk solutions company in the EMEA region has signed a partnership agreement with True Integrated Marketing (TIM).
TIM is a specialist marketing and Client Relationship Management (CRM) consultancy, offering credit retail marketing solutions that encompass strategic thought and practical implementation. The partnership enables PIC Solutions to offer specialised marketing consultancy products, both licensed and developed by TIM, to our clients in the EMEA region.
The primary benefit of the partnership is that PIC Solutions will offer the TIM proprietary CRM audit process, that maps an organisation’s current CRM capability versus their future vision. The gaps are identified and prioritised in order to accelerate the business benefits of implementing the CRM solution and to measure the subsequent ROI.
PIC Solutions will offer the following marketing products exclusively licensed in the region by TIM:
• CMAT (Customer Management Assessment Tool) Healthcheck;

• Full CMAT and FRAME (full project plan and business case).
The Customer Management Assessment Tool (CMAT) uses data driven and process methodologies to identify weaknesses in an operations marketing and CRM functions and makes practical recommendations for improvement.

Both CMAT and FRAME have 10 years track record and are rated by Gartner as the number 1 CRM capability assessment tools.
