Client Challenges

  • The company’s main challenge was online branding and they aimed to promote their brand through content marketing.
  • To capture the details of a large number of distributors and retailers, the client was using an in-house enterprise management system
  • The client also used it to keep an eye on manufactured PCBs
  • However, the existing system was old and designed as per the then requirements
  • It failed to incorporate the details of the growing network of distributors and retailers
  • This inefficiency resulted in –

  • Distributors and retailers started to contact the client more frequently for enquiring about account balance, shipment status, payment dates
  • The number of such calls went up to 500. In the past, it hovered around 200 – 300
  • Some dedicated and crucial resources were involved in only addressing the support issues, which upped the cost by 15%
  • Since client was spending more energy on resolving support issues rather than focusing on mission-critical tasks, productivity was reduced by 20-25%

Technology Stacks

  • SAP
  • Microsoft BOT Framework
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • Azure Cloud

Our Solutions

  • The main pain point of the client was the increasing number of calls, as they were consuming a significant time of their critical resources
  • The client wanted to reduce the calls along with ensuring the increased information availability to distributors/retailers
  • Automating the support service was the most viable and feasible solution
  • We proposed and developed AIML based Chatbot solution (AMI)
