Thanks to the system created based on SAP Sales Cloud and SAP Service Cloud the efficiency of sales department already increased. In plans – connection of dealers and automation of service functions. The ecosystem which will integrate the producer, dealers and consumers will become a result of the project. The K2 Consult command acted as the partner of the project. The implementation project of cloud solutions began in 2019.

According to the company, implementation was decided to perform in two stages. During the first phase several integration with the current ERP system, data exchange on clients, contact persons, products and price lists and also orders, payments and deliveries were implemented. A system was integrated with the website, the tender platform and corporate assets of communication. In addition, segmentation of the customer base was carried out, the product directory with the specifying parts is created, the lead management is automated. Digitalization affected work with phases and sales cycles. In a system an opportunity to approve quotas on sales, to perform detailed planning and forecasting was implemented.

The next stage of the project plans automation of work with dealer network during which dealers will get access to a system, will be able to expose the forecast and sales plans, to make out all necessary requests, to place service orders and claims. A system will become uniform "point of entry" where data will be systematized, and access to them will become the most transparent.

One more area of work within the second stage plans service maintenance transformation. Control automation by service and damage orders and also release of bulletins and preparation of damage statements is planned. In addition, the possibility of creation of orders for maintenance of the equipment which is in ownership at the client will be implemented.

For May, 2020 the dealer network of "The Russian mechanics" totals more than hundred dealers. The qualitative digital medium is necessary for us for interaction at all stages. For us this project – an opportunity to increase loyalty of the end consumer.

It is interesting that already at one of the first stages of data scrubbing for their transfer in a system the company could look at the current status and perspectives of development from a different angle. We hope that the digital instrument will allow "The Russian mechanics" and to further achieve all effective objectives.
