How we help our customers

The biggest pull for us is being able to manage and automate our aftersales service. By moving away from paper-based systems to bring everything together in one portal for internal teams, engineers and customers, we are improving processes and really delivering on customer service. Added to that is the wealth of data the software provides to enable us to analyse and report on our performance at any time. So, if we want to know how long it took to close a specific case or to get an engineer out, the information is instantly available.

We got the impression that Elite were the right organisation in terms of their industry knowledge, their professionality but also the fact that there was a team of people that we were dealing with. We could see the advantages of having a low code, no code system that would allow us to be agile in the way that we developed it and would reflect the needs of the business as the business move forward and grew.

FAQ's

Can EliteManufacturers connect to our production system?

Yes, EliteManufacturers has two parts to the system. The first part is built within our EliteCRM area and allows you to manage sales and aftersales. This can also connect directly into Business Central manufacturing to give you a complete unified solution. If you already have a production system and not looking to move across the manufacturing side, we are able to provide you with many routes of integration weather one way or bi-directional. The most common connection used is SQL.

Does EliteManufacturers have a solution for Engineers?

Yes, as standard within our EliteManufacturers solution we have an engineer’s app which allows the team to manage the aftersales ticket on their mobile or tablet device. This can also be configured to work offline. If you have larger teams, we can also discuss the option for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Field Service which allows for skill and resource planning on a larger scale.

Can our customers log into a portal to manage their account?

Yes, our EliteManufacturers solution can be configured to have a customer portal. The portal can allow your customers to manage their aftersales tickets, units, PDIs and account / park information. Additional licenses apply for portal addons.

Can we automate emails to our customers?

Yes, EliteManufacturers is built on the Dynamics 365 / Power Platform which allows you to have full control to setup fully automated customer journeys. Automation can be sent for a new ticket raised in the customer portal or simply to notify the park or even the end user that the holiday home has been despatched from factory.

Does EliteManufacturers integrate with Outlook?

Yes, EliteManufacturers is built on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform and will work seamlessly with all your commonly used Office 365 applications; such as Outlook, Word, Excel and OneNote. You can use Outlook with EliteManufacturers to track emails, arrange tasks and add appointments to a customer’s correspondence timeline; and integrate with SharePoint to share, store and manage internal documents.
