Steps & Highlights
Phase 1: Requirements management
In the first phase, Vision11 supported Audi Marketing in collecting requirements for market-specific lead management. Business requirements were defined and agreed on- taking into account the individual requirements of the stakeholders, which were then used for the technical concept.
Phase 2: Preparation of a technical concept
After recording the technical requirements, Vision11 developed a technical concept for the data transfer between the Audi City system and the market-specific CRM systems.
In addition to the standard SAP CRM systems, the technical concept included a previously unintegrated dealer lead management system “Manheim Lead Management” (formerly: eGoodManners) as an additional service endpoint.
Phase 3: Implementation of data transfer
Vision11 also supported Audi’s IT departments in applying the new technical concept. During the implementation phase, the standard online gateway to the backend CRM systems was configured. As part of this configuration, XML definitions were provided for data transfer and the Audi City data was mapped to the different respective structures in the CRM systems.
Phase 4: Quality assurance
After completion of the implementation phase, Vision11 supported the planning and application of an extensive test phase. We created test cases for various integration scenarios, conducted briefings with testing specialists and provided support throughout the multi-tier test cycles.
Phase 5: Success control
As part of the performance review, Vision11 supported the Audi marketing department in the design and implementation of a report with meaningful KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) to create transparency in the applied business processes.
Vision11 accompanied the project from the very beginning during the integration of the worldwide Audi City lead management processes into various CRM systems. Contacts established in the Audi City showroom can be gathered and converted into sales opportunities by connected dealers through the clever integration of lead management across several complex interfaces.
A comprehensive knowledge of complex system architectures, the technically skilful handling of problems in the connection of heterogeneous systems and a far-reaching understanding of business processes made Vision11 a valuable and sought-after conception and implementation partner in all project phases.
