Previously, when a new customer signed up with TELUS’ door-to-door team, it could take up to 10 days to get the installation date booked for their services. Now it takes as little as a few hours; and, as a result, customer subscriptions are up and cancellations are down. Achieving this leap in operational efficiency didn’t require a massive transformation program; it simply required a new app for the company’s door-to-door sales team – the Salesforce Door to Door app. As Craig Mason, Vice President Sales & Experience at TELUS, confirms: “The app has revolutionized how we process orders, which means we can onboard new customers much faster.”
The Door to Door App is based on the Salesforce Platform and Sales Cloud, and enables sales teams to complete key elements of the sales process while on the road. For example, customers no longer have to wait for a paper contract to be processed; they can simply digitally sign an electronic copy on the sales agent’s tablet and receive it via email immediately. “The move away from paper-based contracts has delivered numerous benefits,” reveals Mason. “In the past, if we made a change to our terms or conditions, we’d have to design, print and distribute new forms to all the sales teams. Now, we just update the app via the Salesforce Platform.” This digitized approach not only accelerates time-to-market for TELUS, but it’s also much more cost-effective and eco-friendly thanks to reduced printing and paper requirements.
