The Shenzhen Watch & Clock Association was founded in 1987. The association organizes and hosts trade shows and other industry events to showcase new technologies and bring industry buyers and sellers together. They also provide professional services to member organizations such as technical research, design and testing services. As their membership and service portfolio grew they needed better ways to efficiently scale their sales, marketing and customer support operations.
The marketing and member services departments were frustrated because they lacked accurate, consistent and comprehensive information records for the thousands of members served. Poor data quality across all departments created many problems, from mistakes in marketing to poor service quality and support. In addition, completing routine work like preparing and executing a marketing campaign required numerous staff to develop lists, validate data, and reach out to thousands of contacts.
The Association wanted to eliminate information silos residing in every department and manage all member information in a central database. They believed that to accomplish this, the solution must be broad enough to meet each departments needs. The goal was to fully automate and integrate all business processes on a common system, including sales, marketing, customer support and service. Finally, they wanted an advanced marketing automation tool that could execute high-volume email marketing operations to significantly lower support staff requirements.
WisageTech consulting services and 8Manage CRM software provided the best solution.
