SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --Deloitte received top awards during the Dreamforce 2017 conference, including two Salesforce Partner Innovation Awards and an industry award. The annual Partner Innovation awards are given in recognition of the work performed by Salesforce Consulting Partners and the role they play in bringing innovation to life through mobile, desktop and social technologies, as well as their dedication to delivering customer success. Dreamforce 2017, the most inspiring technology event of the year and the world's largest gathering of Trailblazers, marked Deloitte Digital's biggest conference presence to date, with over 700 practitioners from 24 countries attending and the company's exclusive presenting sponsorship of the Dreamforce Equality Summit.
Deloitte Digital has been recognized eight times since 2012 by Salesforce for the Partner Innovation Award. This year, Deloitte's end-to-end CRM solution for Jaguar Land Rover of China won in the Automotive category, while its work for FCR Media, one of the largest digital marketing agencies in Belgium, won in the Sales Cloud category. For the first time this year, Deloitte Digital won a Bolty award for "Best Bolt for Financial Services" for the Deloitte Broker Bolt (Benefits Connect) offering.
"These awards recognize the innovative work of Deloitte Digital teams around the world, who create industry leading solutions for their clients that are tailored to their markets, cultures and geographies," said Paul Clemmons, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and global Salesforce practice leader. "We strive to provide transformative services for our clients and we're honored to receive these awards from Salesforce."
"The Salesforce Partner Innovation Awards recognize the incredible work performed by our partners, and their dedication to delivering customer success," said Tyler Prince, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Alliances and Go-to-Market Innovation, Salesforce. "In this age of the customer, it's imperative that companies focus on customer success. It's not only a customer expectation, it's a vital component of a company's long-term success strategy.
Deloitte Digital's work with Jaguar Land Rover is one of the first cloud-based marketing and Salesforce CPQ solutions to be implemented in mainland China. Utilizing Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Sales Cloud and Service Cloud, the work began by building a Campaign Management System to effectively deliver various touch points along the customer journey from prospect to owner – improving the efficiency, transparency and performance during the marketing campaigns operation. Deloitte Digital also provided Jaguar Land Rover with a Leads Management System, including text message integration, in order to communicate with customers in their preferred channel. This holistic, real-time leads generation integration enhanced the quality and quantity of leads for Jaguar Land Rover in only four months.
"Jaguar Land Rover's expansion in the China market required a complex CRM management process involving different stakeholders across Sales, Marketing, IT and other departments," said Frank Yu, partner, Deloitte China. "Implementing Sales Cloud and Service Cloud allowed us to centralize customer communications and execute more productive marketing campaigns. We are honored to be recognized for this work and excited to see Jaguar Land Rover more effectively engage its prospects and customers."
For FCR Media, Deloitte Digital built a complete core platform to transition the agency from a print directory into a complete digital solutions provider for Belgian businesses. Deloitte Digital increased FCR Media's customer acquisition and satisfaction levels utilizing the full breadth of Salesforce capabilities, including marketing, sales and CPQ, billing and customer service. The project delivered significant business benefits reducing complexity and cost, and enabled the implementation of a customer centric business strategy and subscription based business model.
"Our goal in working with FCR Media was to redesign all customer processes including a 360-degree view to improve experiences and increase efficiencies throughout the different customer journeys – whether that is related to marketing, sales, service, billing or otherwise," said Patrick De Vylder, partner, Deloitte Belgium. "The Salesforce Platform not only reduces costs by removing many of the legacy technologies, but also enables a brand-new flexible subscription based business model to ensure FCR Media can continue to delight customers and track experiences with their service."
The first Lightning Bolt Trailblazer Awards recognized customer and partner innovation across industries. Deloitte Digital was recognized for their work with Limelight Health Systems, a leading technology company that streamlines the quoting, sales, enrollment, and renewal process for the employee benefits industry.
