About the Client

Our client is an online electronics retailer that specializes in selling a wide range of electronic products such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, and accessories. They have been in business for over a decade and have established a loyal customer base. With the increasing competition in the e-commerce space, the client is continuously striving to improve their customer relations management to stay ahead in the market.

Problem Statement

The client approached our team at ODC with several challenges regarding their existing CRM system:
a. Outdated PHP Version:
The existing CRM platform was built on PHP 5.1, which had several limitations and lacked support for modern features and security patches. This posed a risk in terms of security vulnerabilities and potential data breaches.
b. Poor User Interface:
The user interface of the CRM system was outdated and not user-friendly. This made it challenging for the customer service representatives to navigate through the system efficiently, resulting in slower response times and a less satisfying customer experience.
c. Lack of Enhanced Statistics and Reporting:
The client expressed the need for enhanced statistical analysis and reporting features within the CRM system. They required insights into customer behavior, sales trends, and performance metrics to make informed business decisions.
d. Integration with Financial Systems:
There was a lack of integration between the CRM system and the financial software used by the company for accounting, invoicing, and payment processing. This resulted in manual data entry, delays in reporting, and a higher risk of errors.
e. Implementing AI and Chatbot:
The client sought to leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to enhance their CRM system. They wanted to implement AI-driven features such as customer preference analysis, churn prediction, and audience analytics. Additionally, they wanted to integrate a chatbot into their website to handle first-level customer support inquiries efficiently.
