Delivering a B2B Customer Portal To Improve Customer Interactions
We had previously provided Certsure with ecommerce solutions that enabled the purchase of test equipment, technical publications and work wear from their NICEIC and ELECSA online shops. We were subsequently invited to develop a branded B2B customer portal that would simplify and streamline the management of account details, assessment visits, supporting documentation and other services.
The way Certsure interacted with its customers was an entirely manual process involving high volumes of phone calls and paperwork. Contractors seeking to organise assessment visits and manage account details were devoting time away from their core business to make arrangements with Certsure’s main bodies, NICEIC and ELECSA. This equally placed pressure on Certsure’s own staff who faced high demand for the processing and updating of contractor account details and documentation.
Certsure was seeking a more efficient means by which to manage customer interactions. The aim was to improve responsiveness, modernise the flow of information, keep customers better informed, reduce strain on internal resources and raise the overall standard of customer service.
IESA took advantage of a very short 72 hour downtime window and successfully moved to S/4HANA in only 68 hours.
The upgrade has allowed NHS Professionals to analyse SAP BusinessObjects metadata far more effectively. They have access to trusted data discovery, self-service and they are able to benchmark performance with enhanced visualisation technology.
The need for an improved supplier experience was identified as a priority requirement that led to a review of supplier interactions and the recommendation to invest in an SAP Supplier Portal.
