Description of Task This is an individual assignment. Students m ust research Toyota Australia. Students are strictly forbidden to contact either the organisation or any of its employees for the purpose of this assignment, whether formally or informally. Furthermore, no student should be employed by the organisation selected in a management role. Based strictly on secondary information ranging from w ebsites, press releases and industry publications among other sources, students should describe the CRM approaches used by the selected organisation and compare it to its competitors and other relevant companies. For example, the following areas could be analysed to discuss the CRM initiative of an organisation: 1. M arketing Automation applications give marketers the ability to create, plan and execute their campaigns to a targeted audience. By using CRM, marketers can also access the necessary business intelligence to better understand which campaigns are w orking and which customers to target w ith a specific offer. This type of information reduces w asted time and money on sending out the w rong promotion to the wrong customer. 2. Sales Force Automation or SFA helps sales people track leads and opportunities for forecasting and to optimize their sales across all sales channels. SFA also helps reps target whom to call on, what to sell, and to understand how their customers prefer to buy their goods or services. 3. Customer Service applications enables reps to resolve service issues throughout multiple channels, whether it be through the Web, a call centre, fax or field service rep. Customer Service applications and Interaction Centre applications enable customers to solve their own problems on a self-service model for efficient problem resolution. The key is to have all your customer information integrated. This provides each department w ith a 360-degree view of the customer, and ensures that the data is current and complete. For example: Marketing has data on markets, prospects, and lists. This is also supported through a third party vendor. But marketing needs to drive generated leads to Sales for follow up. The marketing department also could use feedback from service and sales about what campaigns are w orking. ‘Sales’ has customer information on transactions and buying preferences. These are the type of trends in consumer buying behaviour that marketing could use to plan upcoming promotions and marketing campaigns. Customer Service has excellent customer feedback, but it’s not looping back into marketing department. This is the type of data that can act as the foundation for upcoming marketing campaigns. Customer Service can also provide sales reps important product information or specific account issues that w ould be invaluable for sales to have before they call on an account. Finally, Customer Service can be used for cross sell and up sell opportunities. In formulating recommendations for a new CRM strategy or improving on an existing CRM strategy, students are expected to critically comment on the following aspects of the organisation: 1. Structure: For example, organisational departments w ill be restructured for better integration for maximum business efficiencies to better share customer information. They w ill no longer exist as separate entities. 2. Process: As departments begin to w ork together, they w ill discover ways to interact more efficiently. 3. Culture: Employees need to change their thinking and the w ay they conduct their w ork. They m ust begin to w ork efficiently with other departments and other divisions around the world, in cases where a multinational organisation is considered. Additionally, many of the daily functions of an organisation can be performed via the World W ide Web – which requires a change in both procedure and attitude. 4. Technology: The final, obvious change w ill be in applying a new technology. Companies w ill add the latest tools to help everyone get their jobs done, but also to help customers m anage their business. Organisations don’t make changes of such magnitude overnight. Therefore, appropriate timelines need to be provided for the proposed recommendations. In order to obtain full marks you w ill need to exhibit “critical analysis” and a realistic “integrated CRM strategy” consistent with the resources and circumstances facing Toyota Australia. You may also like to think of it as including comments, reflections and original thought. You will need to show reality in any forecasts of the future. Your lecturer w ill be looking for a quality company report that reflects and supports your understanding of the subject matter. Ensure that your plan is lucid and consistent, is supported by CRM theories and concepts and that all references are cited in the body of your report. The research, analysis and presentation of your report m ust demonstrate an understanding of the terminology used in the text and in lectures and how the various forces/influences that impact an industry and an organisation. In a good assignment, you identify and analyse the main issues asked for in the requirements. Therefore, read the requirements thoroughly. Your report will be appropriately referenced, and the information w ill be supported by the referenced sources of information used. The lack of references w ill constitute an automatic fail.La Trob e U niversity 11 Students must research Toyota Australia. Students are to write an Integrated CRM Strategy Plan in Report Format.
