Creating one platform and seamless approvals process at Arqaam Capital
The Low Down
Arqaam Capital is a specialist emerging markets investment bank, bringing regional and international product offerings to various markets across MEA. Arqaam combines international best practice with regional expertise, and creates investment opportunities primarily for Middle Eastern investors looking to invest in the region and internationally, as well as international investors looking for opportunities in emerging markets.
Arqaam was dealing with a growing number of clients, and managing all the data across Excel sheets was proving a time-consuming task. They wanted a Salesforce Partner with experience in the investment banking sector, who had the ability to understand business processes and to build a scalable and user-friendly Salesforce CRM solution. The key challenges Arqaam wanted to address within the project included:
- Streamlining the business process to enable all departments to work together under one platform
- Implementing a tool to manage approval processes, internal management and the secure storage of data
- One central location to store all client documentation
The 4C team worked with different departments within Arqaam Capital to build a Salesforce solution that was able to map client journeys under one platform, providing the business with a single source of truth.
The project team worked with Arqaam to shorten the approvals cycle enabling them to work more efficiently and ultimately increase the number of clients that could be managed in a defined period. Previously this has been a manual and laborious task, but using Salesforce, Arqaam have been able to increase efficiencies by over 50%.
Central Location of Documents
Arqaam now has the visibility and flexibility they required for storing and accessing documents. Having one central location where all documents are stored, has dramatically reduced the time taken to search for and locate any document.
Salesforce provides unparalleled data protection which gave Arqaam the confidence they needed from a compliance perspective.
“The work we have carried out with 4C and Salesforce has revolutionized our business. It’s given us an automated system that’s bespoke and helped us become much more effective in managing the needs of our clients .”
