Property Sector Consultancy, Watts Group, Invests in Strategic Customer Relationship Management

CRM system, Lexis InterAction, live at Watts Group's eight offices across the UK and Northern Ireland

Leading consultant to the property and construction industry, Watts Group PLC, has implemented Lexis® InterAction®, a reputable customer relationship management (CRM) system for the professional services sector, from LexisNexis® Enterprise Solutions, a provider of content and technology solutions. The solution is assisting Watts in achieving its strategic business targets through the adoption of the CRM discipline for new business development, improved client communication and enhanced customer care. InterAction is available to users in Watts' eight offices across the UK and Northern Ireland.

InterAction is facilitating a coherent and consolidated approach to sales pipeline management. Unlike previously when business development activity was monitored via spreadsheets by individual offices, InterAction has enabled a centralised approach. All the offices now follow a uniform methodology for business development and have complete visibility of the organisation's sales pipeline.

"A unified, company-wide approach to achieving our business goals is important and InterAction has enabled us to streamline our business processes for marketing and business development," explained Rob Hillman, Director of Watts and part of the UK management. "Already in a short space of time, we can see the benefits of CRM. Our aim is to put CRM at the core of our business operation and make it the default location for all client and business development related activity."

For the first time, Watts has a more holistic view of clients. The solution serves as a central repository of information, offering a 360 degree view of every single contact. InterAction stores historical records of communication, phone calls, client requests and any other client-related activity. Cumulatively, the information throws up extraordinary relationship intelligence that Watts is able to leverage for business advantage.

Watts chose InterAction for the solutions proven suitability for professional services organisations; and LexisNexis' understanding of the firm's requirements.

"We are seeing growing interest for InterAction in the property consultancy sector," said Laura Whitehead, Head of Marketing, LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions. "The construction market is set to grow offering significant new business opportunities to consultancies. There is recognition in the sector that a premeditated approach to business development, client engagement and relationship management will be crucial to gaining a slice of the pie. We are delighted to be working with Watts."

The Lexis InterAction customer relationship management solution is designed for professional services organisations to help drive business relationships, accelerate firm growth and increase revenue. By providing powerful relationship intelligence that goes beyond 'who knows whom', the solution uncovers unanticipated risks, facilitates personalised and streamlined communications and enables execution of business development plans that can be measured by client, segment or industry - all enabling firms to deliver value and exceed client expectations. InterAction can be accessed by users from within Microsoft Outlook and also 'on the move' from a range of mobile devices.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
