Legacy System Re-engineering
Developed a unified model that seamlessly integrated web and windows applications, providing an automated business process. Using process and data flow modeling techniques & Telelink controls on .Net Framework, process reengineering was done to move a CSR driven approach to a web based client dashboard. The end result was an application that was scalable, intelligent and provided better usability and greater functionality.
Client had multiple legacy applications and websites for shopping cart, customer and employee control panels. All these applications lacked integration with each other, were time consuming and old-fashioned. The applications performed number of tasks sequentially, slowly and thus reduced company's throughput significantly. The applications were unable to suffice to the customer requests, subsequently creating a possible threat on the company's growing prospects.
- The client was bearing significant cost for redundant, cumbersome tasks for customer verification and Dialed Number Identification Service (DNIS)'s activation process
- Customer Service Representatives (CSRs) were unable to provide customer's information on-demand
- Client was unable to get current snapshot for its operations
- Senior management was unable to get information for marketing trends, product performance, sales, and revenue
- Marketing managers were unable to track customer behavior, site usability, feedback, sales and revenue patterns and gray areas to optimize
- Customers were unable to select DNIS of their choice with constraint of one DNIS per order. This played an important factor for low customer conversions
- Main areas that needed to be solved were collaboration, automation, value added services and low operating cost
