Integration with ERP at Schenker
Many carriers must wait for the signed delivery note in the office, before they can produce an invoice. But sheer physical distance can often delay things. It can often be a time consuming process to collect these delivery notes for the finance department.
Schenker streamlined their workflow, so that the driver sends an SMS with the Order Number to the data center immediately after the delivery of the goods has been signed for. Order Numbers received via SMS Communicator on an IBM ™ and automatically passed to the ERP application that creates an invoice.
It gave two clear advantages for Schenker:
The invoice dates could be accelerated with an average of three days.
They could introduce a simple "track & trace" system.
Intergration to 'Solteq Car Sales Solution™'
In Finland, garages that are using ‘Solteq Car Sales Solution’ uses SMS an integral part of daily life. Customers will receive a SMS soon as their cars can be picked up after service.
Quotes on parts and repairs are also be sent by SMS. Work can begin as soon as the customer returns a confirmation on SMS. This process has helped to eliminate uncomfortable situations caused by misunderstandings about the price of a repair.
BlueNote SMS Communicator contains a 'User Message Link ". This means in this case, that a particular response from a customer, always will be linked to the user profile of the foreman who sent a quote to that customer. The answer is saved in the log and can also be forwarded by email to the foreman.
Integration with Excel spreadsheets
LeasePlan Brazil was in a situation, where local LeasePlan offices needed to send SMS to multiple recipients that were still unlisted in the customer database on the System i™.
The solution to the problem lay in BlueNote’s integration with Excel spreadsheets. All they needed was to a) write the mobile numbers and the messages in a spreadsheet and b) simply import the file into the web client, and press ‘Send’. Nice and easy.
