To better support, service, and retain customers, RedSail tapped Smooth Fusion® to help with the implementation of Progress® Sitefinity® integrated with Pavlik’s Portal Connector for Microsoft Dynamics.
They created a customer portal that provided their customers’ post-sale support through a knowledge base with articles, customer forum posts, product guides, release notes, training information, downloads, and recorded webinars, which are integrated with case and contact management through the Portal Connector. The Portal Connector pulls the right data to inform a personalized experience for customers–tailored to the products that they have.
As Chris Todd, Program Manager, RedSail Technologies, shared, “One of the things that our customers struggle with is post-sale support and finding information that’s relevant to them. So, that was an example of how this new platform really helped us change the game for our customers. Additionally, our marketing team now has a destination where we can see who’s coming in, viewing what, and track that. Both functionalities have been game-changers.”
Through Portal Connector, RedSail integrated single sign-on to provide customers a seamless experience throughout their journey. CoveoTM search ensures the relevancy of search results so customers can find the right content, right when its needed. The Microsoft Dynamics integration helped internally with managing its accounts, cases, contacts, and knowledge base. Sitefinity was also leveraged to manage and publish the knowledge base’s digital assets.
RedSail started with a common design that would work for everyone, and now business units are starting to diverge and focus on what’s important to them. Using multi-site management, different permissions and content sources can be leveraged for the different portal experiences. As Shelia Warfield, Vice President of Marketing, RedSail Technologies, commented, “We’re no longer in this world of having to duplicate pages, and then customize it to a need. So that is a huge efficiency gain. The platform is much more conducive to sharing information and telling stories in ways that create more breakthrough with customers. We now work within the flexibility of that platform, as opposed to dealing with so many constraints.”
