“The one goal where we would not accept failure was achieving 100% usage of the system, as in prior attempts that was what prevented us from realizing the full potential of CRM. Sakonent helped us to rally our leadership and users as owners of the system, build and execute a company-wide communication plan about CRM, and develop an ongoing training program.”

See how we helped NTN Bearing
It was a classic case of a manufacturer who was not interested in growing their business simply by cutting costs. The solution was opening up sales channels and aligning sales and marketing using Saleforce CRM.
Changing with the times is a common challenge in many nonprofit organizations and the ELCA is no exception. We delivered a constituent management solution that provided a single system for all constituent interactions, streamlining their processes and consolidating data system while improving team-to-team collaboration.
“Sakonent emphasizes that business process and user adoption come first, technology second. Sakonent believes that CRM projects are business projects, not IT projects, and thus, they succeed or fail based on business goals, rather than IT metrics. Sakonent positions itself as the trusted advisor of the business manager. Small and nimble, Sakonent can adapt rapidly to the changing CRM environment.”
