Mastering complex challenges
Hassia laid the foundations for a successful CRM project in 2005. “Hassia’s requirements were very extensive and ambitious,” says Klaus Eichhorn, Synergy’s general manager. “Discipline and limiting ourselves to the most important points at first were thus the top priorities for everyone involved.” SYNERGY and Hassia first set out to compile the functional specifications, encompassing the most important requirements for the CRM system. Customer support, listing control and promotion management were at the top of the wish list. After this, all potential providers were reviewed. Eichhorn comments: “Only very few solutions are able to truly cover the industry’s special requirements.” Hassia was already using two CRM systems at the time from CAS Kaiserslautern and CAS Software Karlsruhe, but the company wanted a unified and future-proof solution.
