Project:

CRM Strategy to Sustain Competitive Advantage

 

Business Challenge:

Roche Diagnostics is a division of F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, Basel, Switzerland.  ISM worked specifically with the Roche Diabetes Care (RDC) business unit in the United States.
The diagnostics market was becoming increasingly competitive, with few barriers to entry.  Notwithstanding excellent products and services resulting from its world-class research and development efforts, RDC realized it needed to launch additional initiatives to meet aggressive financial targets and sustain long-term competitive advantage.

Program Objectives:

RDC engaged ISM to assist in formulating an overarching CRM strategy as one of several customer-facing initiatives. High-level objectives for the CRM project included:

  • Improve productivity
  • Generate additional revenues
  • Decrease costs
  • Enhance employee morale

Improve customer satisfaction, loyalty and retention

How ISM Helped:

  • Requirements analysis
    • Technical baseline review
    • Field visits with key customer facing personnel
    • Business process assessment
    • CRM education sessions and brainstorming with a cross-organization “super-user” group
    • Needs analysis survey
    • Business functional prioritization
    • Key-customer focus groups

 

  • High-level CRM program business case
    • Program costs and benefits over a 5-year timeframe
    • Qualitative and quantitative return on investment
    • Risks and mediations
    • Parameters for accountability

To build strong relationships with and secure the commitment of affected business units, ISM also developed a Project Management Office (PMO) structure including staffing, responsibilities and costs.

Most importantly, ISM helped RDC align objectives and needs between executive management and operational-level personnel to the ensure success of RDC’s CRM initiative.
