Tools

DALLAS, Dec 04, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Credera, a full-service management and technology consulting firm, led a strategic CRM initiative for C Spire Wireless that continues to provide huge efficiency gains, faster customer service, and increased customer satisfaction. InformationWeek 500 recognized the ground-breaking initiative and ranked C Spire Wireless the number one U.S. technology innovator in the Wireless Industry.

"Credera's leadership and partnership with C Spire Wireless helped to make the InformationWeek 500 win possible," said Carla Lewis, Sr. Vice President, Information Technology, C Spire Wireless. "This project was a 'game changer' for us internally and for the company. It's an integral part of our personalization strategy and we continue to increase functionality and performance."

C Spire Wireless, a regional wireless communications provider, engaged Credera to lead strategic and development efforts for an easy-to-use, fully-integrated, CRM solution. The custom solution offers C Spire Wireless holistic customer views by aggregating information from several internal and external systems for sales and service. Representatives are able to provide consistent, faster, and more personalized service across all customer touch points, including retail locations, call centers, telesales, and third-party resellers. Prior to implementation, representatives from all channels had to click-through as many as eight different screens and applications in order to access information. After implementation, all pertinent information is accessible on the main screen, resulting in a 10-15 second efficiency savings - allowing more time for representatives to educate, train, and care for customer needs.

"Credera has greatly enjoyed its partnership with C Spire Wireless over the past four years. We are proud of the results we accomplished together and are thrilled InformationWeek 500 recognized C Spire Wireless as number one in the Wireless Industry," said Rob Borrego, President and CEO, Credera.

According to InformationWeek magazine, the InformationWeek 500 recognizes the most innovative U.S. business technology teams that make notable improvements to their companies' operations. Companies complete a rigorous application highlighting business technology strategies and unconventional approaches. A panel of editors then evaluates applicants before the rankings are announced.
