Group Vice Chairman
King Power Group of Companies
With its services reaching foreign visitors as well as Thais, every aspect of King Power’s business aims to reflect a positive image of Thailand to the world. Indeed a top priority for all company staff is best-in-class service, as well as high-quality products and reasonable prices.
In line with its commitment to providing excellent services to customers and members, the most common point of contact for dealing with customers and members is the King Power call center, where callers can receive instant additional information on products and after-sales services. As such, it was important for the company to find a standardized IT system that could help manage the call center’s systems effectively and boost customer satisfaction.
Over the years King Power International has put a lot of focus on strategies and policies to manage customer relations. As new technology becomes available, the company has increasingly looked to IT as a means of achieving this and recently invited various solution providers with experience in CRM to present their services and solutions. As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, Blue Intelligence (Thailand) introduced Microsoft Dynamics CRM to King Power. From the outset Blue Intelligence was confident that Dynamics CRM was the right solution for King Power since it not only covered all their requirements for Customer Service Management, but also marketing and sales management which would ensure that it was flexible enough to grow with the company and support the future needs of King Power. Microsoft Dynamics CRM responds to the needs of every related party. Users can use the program to its full potential and at the same time the IT Department can adjust, manage and maintain the program easily. Moreover, company executives can see reports with real-time information and current work processes that can be analyzed and used for planning next steps and future company policies.
Impressed with its diverse and practical features, King Power chose to adopt Microsoft Dynamics CRM for the management of its customer relations. Another reason for their choice was the fact that they were also looking for a CRM partner with good credentials and that was as committed to customer service as King Power itself. In this respect, Blue Intelligence was the perfect partner since it is regarded as an international leader and expert in Microsoft Dynamics CRM, with a long list of satisfied customers. In fact it has received a CRM award for 3 consecutive years and has hands-on experience in working and implementing CRM projects for leading international and local companies. Most importantly, Blue Intelligence was also able to demonstrate deep insight into the unique business requirements of King Power.
Focusing on customer relations tools, the technology used in CRM covers a variety of fields that suited King Power’s decision to take a ‘total solution’ approach - adopting, amongst others, call technology, customer relationship management technology, sales volume report systems and product stock management system technologies to help coordinate operations at airports and shops, as well as between drivers and car services.
KING POWER CALL CENTRE
At King Power Call Centre, Microsoft Dynamics CRM is fully integrated with the telephone systems so that a customer’s profile and sales history is shown to the customer agent before the call is even answered and the agent can be fully prepared to instantly answer the customer’s inquiry. Microsoft Dynamics CRM is used for information checking regarding purchase orders, reward points, product prices, product location and product availability. (The CRM is linked with a product stock system so that up-to-date product details and prices are always shown).
Microsoft Dynamics CRM is also used to deal with customer or member complaints. With this system, the customer agent will be able to transfer complaints to the relevant people effectively, as well as track the status of each complaint and ensure that it is dealt with as quickly as possible.
CSRS (Customer Satisfaction Record System) lets customers rate their satisfaction with services, helping to evaluate standards and maintain continuous improvement.
Crown Service is a premium service for top customers who regularly rely on King Power’s services. Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Crown Service is similar to those of the King Power Call Centre but with some additional features to handle the extra privileges that Crown Service customers receive.
Firstly, Microsoft Dynamics CRM is used during the initial application process when customers wish to become a Crown Service member and the system will transfer their form from the headquarters to the airport via Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM is also used for issuing exclusive weather reports and currency rates to Crown Service customers before they travel. Additionally it will handle other secretarial services, such as recommending relevant King Power partners to visit. The system can also provide tourist information for visitors coming to Thailand, as well as coordinate special services at the airport, including your own personal shopper.
Lastly, the system is also used for issuing car booking forms and car service management for Crown Service members.Benefits
