In 2017, Acrisure Protection Group, known at the time as Southwest Dealer Services (SWDS), faced challenges with their sales processes, including a lack of automation, low visibility into customer activity, and a system that relied heavily on manual data entry and updating (google sheets-based). These pain points were holding back the growth and success of the business, making it difficult for the sales team to keep up with growing customer demands. Acrisure needed a single source of truth that allowed them to streamline their sales process, increase productivity, and gain valuable insights into customer activity. To overcome these challenges, Acrisure turned to the Corrao Group, a leading Salesforce consulting partner, for help setting up its Salesforce Sales Cloud platform.
The first project focused on implementing Salesforce Sales Cloud to help optimize their sales process and scorecard. Corrao Group worked closely with Acrisure to understand their business requirements and design a solution that met their specific pain points. Jill Zack, Acrisure’s SVP of Marketing, played a crucial role in the project's success by providing valuable insights and collaborating closely with Corrao Group's team to ensure that Sales Cloud was tailored to meet Acrisure's unique needs and requirements.
Sales Cloud Implementation
After multiple sessions walking through their business processes, Sales Cloud was configured to their specific sales processes:
Tracking and Analyzing Sales Activity with the Sales Scorecard
A key aspect of the implementation was the creation of a sales scorecard for Acrisure to get their executives off of spreadsheets. The scorecard proved to be a critical tool for tracking and analyzing sales activity in a streamlined and efficient manner. The scorecard supplied a comprehensive overview of sales activity, allowing Acrisure to identify key trends and areas of focus quickly. This enabled Acrisure to make data-driven decisions regarding sales strategy, product offerings, and resource allocation. The ability to track sales activity by division, District Manager, and dealership also helped to promote accountability and transparency within the sales team. Additionally, the scorecard allowed agents to prioritize their efforts by highlighting accounts needing attention and upcoming tasks, increasing efficiency and productivity. Since its original conception, the scorecard has been modified to meet Acrisure today’s needs.
Salesforce Managed Services
After the initial implementation, Corrao Group provided Salesforce Managed Services to Acrisure to help maintain and enhance their Salesforce instance. Managed Services are a comprehensive program that provides ongoing support and optimization for our customers. The Corrao Group worked closely with Acrisure and Jill Zack to provide various services, including adding new users, making tweaks to reports and dashboards, creating new reports dashboards, updating field API names, managing data uploads, and making enhancements to the overall Salesforce instance per feedback from Acrisure. In addition to providing ongoing support and optimization services for Acrisure’s Salesforce instance, Corrao Group also assisted with onboarding of additional agencies that were acquired in an aggressive time of growth, which added additional divisions in target markets including; Boston, Chicago, Dallas, and Seattle. Furthermore, Corrao Group helped Acrisure integrate MenuMax and Marketing Cloud Account Engagement (Pardot) into their Salesforce instance to streamline their business processes and improve efficiency.
Overall, our Managed Services helped Acrisure to keep its Salesforce instance up-to-date and running smoothly, which allowed Acrisure to focus on its core business operations. Acrisure was able to improve its sales processes and drive business success with an optimized instance that was designed and updated to meet its specific business needs and requirements throughout the past six years.
In conclusion, Acrisure successfully overcame its sales process challenges with the help of Corrao Group's Salesforce consulting and managed services. By implementing Sales Cloud and custom workflows, Acrisure achieved automation, increased productivity, and gained valuable insights into customer activity. Creating and modifying a sales scorecard enabled Acrisure to make data-driven decisions regarding sales strategy, product offerings, and resource allocation. Additionally, Corrao Group's Managed Services helped Acrisure maintain and enhance its Salesforce instance, integrate new tools, and onboard new divisions.
