THE CHALLENGE

Like many medium-sized companies, KWB was faced with the challenge of digitising its processes efficiently and in a targeted manner looking into a competitive growth market. The focus was on covering all customer-related processes and customer communication, thus creating a seamless customer journey and the best possible customer experience. In addition to reducing the workload in the back office through optimised self-service appointments and a fully automatic scheduling and tour optimisation, a real-time connection of the sales force should be achieved at the same time. "For us, designing digital transformation means developing all areas related to customers and customer communication and digitally setting up all processes in a customer-oriented and consistent manner in order to achieve a high level of customer satisfaction with high efficiency," outlines Christian Luttenberger, customer service manager at KWB, the challenge the company faced.
