Anything worth sharing from Gauri, our clients and partners

JANUARY 2019

Gauri delivers a unified Sales and Service Cloud CRM platform on C/4HANA with ERP and eCommerce integration for Arco, achieving their vision of a single, unified platform to transform their business operations.

Arco identified the need to transform and restructure their sales processes to improve efficiency, minimise lost opportunities and enhance customer management capabilities.

At the same time, Arco’s Customer Service teams were using a combination of systems and bespoke solutions to respond to queries from the account managers and customers, resulting in delays and process inefficiencies.

At the core, the need was to reduce high service cost, improve financial reporting and build effective dashboards through a single platform and single data set.

The challenge was that a hybrid landscape with a mix of on-premise, Cloud CRM technologies integrated with ERP now needed to be moved to a unified Cloud platform, integrated with ERP and e-commerce, with a seamless transition causing minimal disruption to the business.

Gauri was selected as a partner of choice, after a thorough partner evaluation by Arco owing to our deep CRM expertise track record and references including integration to ERP and e-commerce in complex landscapes.

Gauri proactively collaborated with Arco’s stakeholders from business, architecture, IT and operations to ensure that the solution design and implementation was able to deliver the desired outcomes in the planned timelines.
