CIO, Bay & Bay Transportation
Intense competition for freight carriage required Bay & Bay to focus all its resources on effective sales management.
The goal has been to increase revenues in a recessionary, demanding economic climate.
The company needed to give sales teams a complete picture of every transaction including the loads moving with customers, the revenue and margin on each deal, and the status of each shipment in transit
Sales teams were navigating up to five different applications in their quest to understand the customer relationship.
Company lacked the budget, resources and time to devote to traditional hand-coded data integration.
Integrate on-premise back-office systems (including data on trucks and other assets, the brokerage carriers contracted to haul the freight, and the company’s accounting system) with salesforce.com to reap maximum sales impact.
