ORBIS implements Microsoft Dynamics 365 at FrischeParadies

Retailer for delicatessen and delicatessen FrischeParadies

ORBIS AG implemented the CRM cloud solution Microsoft Dynamics 365 Online at FrischeParadies, Germany's largest retailer of gourmet foods and delicatessen for high-end gastronomy and private households, on schedule and within budget in four months.  The Saarbrücken-based IT service provider impressed with its expertise in Microsoft Dynamics 365 and the food industry. In addition, the close cooperation of all stakeholders as well as the commitment of ORBIS consultants were key factors in the fast implementation.

Because customer data is managed centrally, uniformly, transparently and professionally with Microsoft Dynamics 365 by FrischeParadies, replacing Microsoft Excel and other programs, it creates a Single Source of Truth with a 360-degree view of customer-related data and processes. This allows the approximately 90 telephone consultants to provide even more efficient and targeted advice and support to their customers in the food service industry. They also benefit from many improvements and simplifications, because information on B2B customers can be viewed at any time. If an employee enters data into the CRM, it is immediately available to the other 120 or so users.

Every sales consultant obtains a telephone call list, ORBIS experts extended the CRM system to this end, which displays clearly the time at which the customers want to be called. The list is updated every week automatically. It also shows which customers call the employee and when. Because each list can also be made available to other employees, a telephone consultant representing another employee can easily and quickly access the processes of the colleague and is well prepared for each conversation. Customers appreciate this and their satisfaction increases.

In the future, Microsoft Dynamics 365 will become the central communication platform for all transactions with B2B customers, an important prerequisite for the digitalisation of the sales processes. The bi-directional integration of CRM with the SAP ERP system through ORBIS SAP IntegrationONE gets us much closer to this goal. A B2B online store, which is to go into operation in the foreseeable future, will also be connected to the CRM cloud to allow end-to-end digital and efficient order processing. It is also considered to map purchasing processes in Microsoft Dynamics 365 in the future.

Currently, FrischeParadies implements the analysis platform Microsoft Power BI, which can be seamlessly integrated into the CRM and provides real-time access to CRM data, trends and patterns for those responsible. This provides further important insights to manage the business even more efficiently. Information from the online store is also to be used for the CRM solution, so it can also be analysed with Power BI. In addition, it is intended to offer data analyses with Power BI to B2C customers.
