The company has more than 3,600 employees, leases 1,100 delivery trucks, and services more than 300,000 businesses nationwide. W.B. Mason wanted to be on the latest Microsoft platform and was looking to upgrade from Dynamics AX 2009 and was looking to deploy customer engagement functionality early in the project.
Flintfox brought to the table something unique that W.B. Mason was looking for, a partner that lived and breathed wholesale distribution. Flintfox has decades of industry vertical experience directly aligned with the business processes W.B. Mason relies on every day to operate their business. W.B. Mason wanted their customer support teams to have the best tools, multiple support channels, and task automation so they could deliver quick responsive service to their clients.
W.B. Mason was interested in Dynamics 365 and the integration
between the ERP and CRM solutions. Specifically, how it could increase agent productivity, leverage process flows, and provide users with the tools and capabilities expected from a customer service software solution. They chose to purchase Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement due to the great relationship they had formed and the expertise Flintfox has in the wholesale distribution vertical. The Flintfox solution provided the following benefits:
W.B. Mason did not have one centralized place to gather and store all of the data from their customers. For example, W.B. Mason had 250 customer service agents in their call center manually taking phone calls and switching between different systems to gather client information. Due to this W.B. Mason were challenged to manage their customer service operations in a cost efficient manner which resulted in:
Along with Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement, W.B. Mason also chose Flintfox to implement three additional ISV solutions:
These solutions provided the following benefits:
The estimated immediate ROI for W.B. Mason is around the Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement solution as the initial deployments are focused on the Inside Sales and Customer Service areas, which are no longer manually processed via multiple disparate systems. By having a single source of truth where client data is displayed, the Customer Service Representative (CSR) can log into the system to see client details, track shipped items, and view backorders extremely quickly.
Enabling this functionality will greatly improve the customer journey. W.B. Mason’s objective is to ensure their clients are satisfied with their products and the services provided by the sales, delivery, installation, and other components of the purchasing process, all of which Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement will enable them to achieve.
