Car Benefit Solutions Selects Workbooks CRM

Type: #PR

Reading, England, (17th February 2015) – Car Benefit Solutions (CBS), a leading provider of car benefit schemes has selected Workbooks cloud CRM system to roll out across its business. Workbooks CRM was selected after a market comparison and was shortlisted and selected over Maximiser, Sugar and Gold-Vision systems.

Martin Greenhalgh, Business Analyst of CBS commented: “We were using a home grown system, email and spreadsheets, but found this limiting and increasingly administration heavy, particularly when we wanted to pull sales data and reports.”

Martin continued: “We identified a need to create a central source of customer data which was easily accessible to the Sales and Marketing teams and this in turn would provide opportunities for cross and up selling. We sought a system that was easy to use, affordable and where we felt we could gain a business partnership instead of a technical supplier. With Workbooks we feel we have the best solution for all of these needs.”

Ian Moyse, Workbooks Sales Director commented: “We are proud at our high selection rate against such other CRM systems and that leading firms such as CBS select us after considerable diligence and comparison.”

About Car Benefit Solutions (CBS)

CBS was formed in 2002 by the current Management Team who believe that customers are best served by having car benefit arrangements specifically designed to meet their objectives rather than having to take a vanilla product.

In addition to ensuring that employees have the right tool for the job where appropriate, the car benefit is seen by many as the most important element of their remuneration package after salary and is a key differentiator for recruitment and retention purposes. It is therefore essential that your car benefit is designed and delivered to meet your corporate needs.

The CBS Management Team were integral to the development and implementation of the first Employee Car Ownership Schemes (ECOS) in the 1990’s with some of the largest corporate fleets in it.
