Oracle iSupport Offshore Implementation

Jade Global’s Oracle iSupport solution allowed our customer, a leading high technology company in Silicon Valley, to improve customer responsiveness, customer lead times, and customer retention, and lower operational costs — in only 4 months.

Our Customer’s Challenge

Already having implemented Oracle Depot Repair and Oracle Service modules, our customer’s major challenge was customer service. While return merchandise authorization (RMA) processing was taking several months, neither their customers nor their customer service had any visibility into the RMA process. This lead to major customer satisfaction issues.

The entire process was plagued by various pain-points. Due to lack of transparency and ease of use, client was loosing Repair Revenues.

Customer’s goal was to allow customers to create their own RMAs over the internet and only manage exceptions through its Customer Service back-office, thereby reducing overheads.

Customer identified the problem at a high level, but had no solution to fix the problem and resolve customer satisfaction issue.

The Solution

  • Architecting the solution using Oracle 11i platform, and converting a concept into a reality using oracle iSupport and Depot Repair.
  • Back-end Automation around Oracle modules including Oracle Depot Repair, Oracle Order Management and Oracle Pricing ensured minimal manual intervention and seamless process flow up to invoicing.
  • Customized Exception Management system enabled service agents to manage exceptions in the RMA capture process effectively.
