New Delhi, Delhi, India, 2010/08/18 - Sage Software India’s Integrated Sage CRM and ERP Solution enhances service levels to over 200,000 Indian farmers who have subscribed to Reuters Market Light.
Sage India today announced that Reuters Market Light (RML) has successfully implemented an integrated Sage CRM and Sage Accpac ERP solution suite to automate processes of voucher management, complaint management, customer interaction and financial operations. Reuters Market Light (RML) is part of Thomson Reuter’s group and offers Indian farmers up-to-date, local and customized commodity pricing information, news and weather updates through SMS based subscription. RML is using a 100 user pack of Sage CRM and 5 user pack of Sage Accpac ERP.
Before implementing the current system RML was using discrete systems for voucher management, complaint management and profile management. Pre-paid vouchers were generated in one application and were sold via the distributors to the farmers,. As the integrated system took shape the vouchers are now generated as a batch file from Sage Accpac ERP and dispatched to distributors. Also since Sage Accpac ERP is integrated with Sage CRM customer information automatically gets reflected in the CRM. As the farmer calls in for service activation the customer care executives validates him as a new customer or an existing customer in Sage CRM and takes note of his information preferences. Sage CRM synchronizes automatically with the profile management system therefore activating SMS service on the farmers mobile.
Sage CRM case management feature tracks complaints and issues from start to close. The customer service staff has access to all the relevant customer information including calls received, interactions, escalation history and support cases, this ensures quick resolution of issues and improves the levels of customer satisfaction.
