Challenges Leading to Transformation
Brigade Plus faced operational challenges from a complex technology stack entrenched in legacy tools previously used, impeding not just their operational efficiency but also strategic growth posture.Recognising these constraints within their customer experience stack, Brigade Plus began to seek a strategic CRM platform to transform the employee experience and raise the quality of their customer experience.
Following a thorough evaluation of the vendor landscape, Brigade Plus chose Zoho CRM as their strategic platform of choice for customer experience transformation. Zoho CRM’s focus on usability for every user, mature integration capabilities, and comprehensive no-code and low-code customisation aligned naturally with Brigade Plus’s expectations for their customer experience and growth goals. Combining Zoho CRM with Zoho Creator, Brigade Plus was able to create a simplified system that brought together customer context to provide a comprehensive view for better decision-making at all levels.
After a quick discovery phase, a cross-functional team from Zoho owned and executed the implementation, encompassing both Zoho and third-party integrations within a concise 4-month timeframe. A simplified and modular engagement approach helped Zoho and Brigade Plus save time and effort while ensuring a seamless transition from their incumbent system to the new Zoho CRM implementation.
