SAP ACE awards are an industry benchmark to recognize the best of the best-run businesses in the Indian subcontinent, and honours business excellence achieved through the implementation of SAP solutions. This year, SAP received 300 nominations across various categories.
Wipro's Genie Mobile CRM has enabled field engineers to update assigned calls in real time using their mobile phones. This in turn has enabled better adherence to the firm's Service Level Agreements (SLAs) with its customers. The uniqueness of the Genie Mobile CRM is its ability to capture the digital signature of the customer acknowledging successful resolution of the call. The digital signature is captured on a smart form built into the field engineer's mobile. Subsequently, an e-mail is generated and delivered to the customer's inbox, intimating closure of the call along with call details and resolution provided.
Speaking on the occasion, Anuj Bhalla, Vice President & Business Head, Enterprise Services, Wipro said "We are delighted to have won the prestigious SAP ACE Award for the best user of SAP's Sybase solutions in India.
