Global key strategic challenge

Luxembourg – November, 27th 2019: UpCRM hosted a special event dedicated to the Financial Services sector in Luxembourg. This event gathered Banks, Financial Institutions and Wealth Management Funds willing to get inspired by Cloud Computing Solutions with respect of regulation. As evolution regarding regulatory framework made a step toward the use of outsourcing and Cloud technology, this conference aimed to put Cloud Solutions in perspective with European / Luxembourg Financial Compliance.

Cloud Computing Solutions are a global key strategic challenge, so Patrick Ittah, COO of UpCRM, presented the global context and benefits of choosing Cloud Solutions and Salesforce introduced several customers use cases to illustrate advantages of that type of solution. With examples of increases of pipeline generation up to +29% thanks to campaign management, growth conversions up to +430% in retail, both metrics impacting revenue at the end of the year. Growth figures coupled with lower drop-out rates up to -47% and savings of 10.000 hours of low-value manual labor through automation.
