Transforming PSA's end to end customer experience with Salesforce
Groupe PSA is the second largest car manufacturer in Europe, is present in 160 countries and produces the Peugeot, Citroen, DS, Opel and Vauxhall brands. In 2016, PSA began to outline a strategy which entailed the rapid expansion of the company. As part of this they decided to undertake a major digital transformation project that focused on gaining better visibility and control of their data as well as improving CX across the business.
PSA recognised that their customers are constantly evolving and they want information at the right time for them and in their preferred format and channel but they faced the following challenges:
- They had a disjointed view of the customer - They didn’t have a comprehensive lead management system or process in place and their customer data was held in separate systems across the dealership network. This made it impossible to have a 360 degree view of the customer.
- They had no multichannel strategy in place - This meant that the way the communicated with their customers was not a seamless experience which had a negative effect on lead follow up time.
Building the Journey
We worked with PSA to translate their needs into the technology of Sales Cloud, Community Cloud and Marketing Cloud. Using the solid Salesforce infrastructure we designed workable solutions for customer journeys giving PSA better insight into what their customers are looking for and a means of responding in an appropriate way. Truly giving them a 360 view of the customer and their customers an improved CX.
The Digital Dealer
We designed a complete lead management system (The Digital Dealer) across three brands of the PSA Groupe (Peugeot, Citroen, DS) to enable a seamless, multichannel journey. Since this has been implemented, communication with customers has been far more effective with more timely responses and qualified leads passed quickly to the dealer.
“4C understood our culture very quickly. They brought in sound management and project controls and were very responsive to our needs.”
