"Since using VIdegree, I've increased the margin of tasks I'm able to handle in a day. Previously, 60% of my time was taken up just responding to clients' questions. Now, thanks to the systematic reminder service, several issues are taken care of early on. The number of customer emergencies have dropped from 8~10 cases a day to 3~5. Now over 70% of my time can be spent on marketing and building better relationships with clients. I no longer need to spend all my time trying to put out fires and making a mess of everything. The best part is that my relationships with my clients are better than ever, and they have become increasingly willing to refer their friends and family to me." In other words, the regional manager of Nan Shan Life Insurance at the Da Wang service location whole heartedly recommends VIdegree.

"The insurance business places a strong emphasis on the relationship between people. To provide customers with service before they even need it, relies on detailed management of customer data," stated the Da Wang location communication services regional manager. Senior members of the sales team must think about how to increase client satisfaction which in turn increases customer referral rates, or in other words, how to get your existing customers to introduce new customers to you.

The channels insurance agents use to communicate with their clients are constantly changing! "In the past, it might've been through text messages, now, almost all communication occurs through Line. But there is no way to manage or analyze data using Line." Therefore, Huang Zheng-Xiong places a great amount of emphasis on customer relationship protection software, and has tried a variety of options available on the market. Still, most of the software available has either not been able to help bridge the distance between agents and customers, or the features are more designed to address the needs of less experienced sales people with a smaller client base. "VIdegree was the one in a million, and its design is based on a lot of initiative taking marketing concepts," Huang stated happily.

"When we have a large number of clients, we always tend to visit the ones we are familiar with. But VIdegree's "show nearby clients" feature, helps us know if there are clients we have less contact with nearby. Stopping by just to say hello, to chat for a bit can go a long way in forming a better relationship, making it easier for clients to think of us when they need insurance," shared Huang appreciatively. Anything we previously talked to a client about can be immediately recorded in VIdegree. Memos can then be used to create work reminders, which help make sure that no important details or deadlines are missed.

Many policyholders now pay by credit card. This creates the issue of payments no longer being able to go through when the expiration date of the card is reached, in which case payments need instead be made by cash or wire transfer. When customers receive such notice, it always creates complaints. Using VIdegree allows you to actively remind clients to renew their credit card information, solving this long-standing problem!

What makes the insurance industry different from other industries is that: the person our sales team comes into contact with might just be what we call a representative figure, the people who are actually in need of the insurance are the family. Therefore, it takes a complete network connection chart to find the list of remaining potential clients. Huang reminds us that, "Consideration must also be given to the people actually being insured. You need to make sure to maintain your connection with the family also, otherwise if someone closer to them becomes an insurance agent, then you will very likely get replaced. So you can't just be on good terms with the representative figure." To further differentiate their services, Huang uses the "tagging" feature to clearly mark all representative persons and all who are actually being insured. Whenever there is news regarding insurance policies or on-going promotions, messages are sent to the appropriate group. In addition, for the clients with a previous record of referring new clients, the system reminds Huang that their special templates should be chosen for their holiday greeting cards. This allows Huang to give these clients the VIP treatment in appreciation of their referrals.

After changing their mode of operation, Huang now has more time to spend with his family, pursue hobbies and engage in golf, which is his favorite leisurely sport. "Sometimes when I'm on the golf course, I receive phone calls from clients. When this happens, I immediately log-in to VIdegree and search for records or information on the client, which allows me to quickly provide my customers with the best response to their question." But the benefits of using VIdegree do not just end there, in the future when Huang traveling abroad, he would even be able to assign someone to cover for him. Work related stress no longer has to follow you on your vacations.

"Since using VIdegree, I've increased the margin of tasks I'm able to handle in a day. Previously, 60% of my time was taken up just responding to clients' questions. Now, thanks to the systematic reminder service, several issues are taken care of early on. The number of customer emergencies have dropped from 8~10 cases a day to 3~5. Now over 70% of my time can be spent on marketing and building better relationships with clients. I no longer need to spend all my time trying to put out fires and making a mess of everything.

What makes the pet industry special is that the customer paying for the service, is typically not the one who receives the service (the pet does). A single customer might own several pets at the same time. The owner's family might also bring the pets in to the store to buy stuff or receive care. The multiple different relationships of a pet with its owner or several owners can become difficult to keep track of. Most standard CRM systems are unable to account for such all the different connections between pet and owner/owners. But VIdegree allows users to freely add new fields or columns to record the name of each pet. This feature can also be combined with the tagging feature to label the service needs and commonly purchased items of each pet a customer owns along with other information such as the breed of the dog and the customer's rating. Such features help easily organize the identity of the pet, the identity of the customer, and the service or goods required in relation to each other. This service improvement is only made possible by the fact that VIdegree allows for the addition of new fields and also its tagging feature.

In discussing how he uses VIdegree, Qiu shares that he makes the most use of the tagging and customer memo features. First, the tagging feature is used to define product type, then once a customer selects their mattress, the system is then able to send them emails, newsletters, or text messages using personalized script. This serves to remind customers that Joy Dream Mattress provides after-sales services. After-sale service includes the continuing maintenance and care for all mattresses sold, and make customers feel welcome in our store at any time. Second, through VIdegree's customer memo feature, Qiu is able to clearly records the purchasing history of each customer along with their maintenance service details. Used in conjunction with the caller-ID function, basic information on a customer is automatically displayed on-screen when customers call-in to the store, making the service provided much more immediate! Qiu further explains, "VIdegree is not only a practical tool, it can also be used for customer analysis. Joy Dream Mattress uses "potential customer" and "current customer" tags as different categories. VIdegree's built-in customer demographic analysis feature can then be used to calculate sales-success rates. You can even add an additional parameter for analysis such as 'area,' to perform cross-analysis and comparison. This allows for the adjusting of our product line accordingly. Aside from increase our customer service quality, VIdegree has also helped automate the sending of messages and delivery of goods notices. Customer shipping information is automatically sent to our partnered suppliers and also the delivery driver, simplifying the amount of work we need to perform behind the curtains.

Thinking back, Brenda states that, "The best thing about VIdegree are its tagging and memo features." Previously, constituent names and information were organized using Excel. At the time, in order to categorize volunteers into groups, we had to repeatedly copy and paste every any new pieces of information into multiple lists of names. It was a pain to manage. Furthermore, adjusting fields was always a complex task due to often having to record information that doesn’t fit easily into any specific field. Now, using the tagging feature, we are able to quickly perform multidimensional grouping. For example, using, "area supported" in addition to "18 school zones" can be used to categorize or group supporting volunteers. This allows the organization to not only easily gather the necessary manpower for events, but can also be used to match volunteer's from different disciplines to students with specific interests. Proudly, Brenda exclaims that, "Establishing an extensive and efficient volunteer database, is crucial to allowing us to effectively provide students with the 'living book' experience. It is also one of the reasons why so many schools have been happy to cooperate with us!"
