Social Media Engagement

MSME Smart Business Solutions from Scimitar Global Services LimitedThe speed at which we do business, and the number of channels we’re using to do it, is rapidly increasing. Your customers and employees have many choices when it comes to communicating, and social media channels are key components of the customer journey. It’s crucial that today’s organizations embrace social as a key aspect of digital transformation, rethinking how they approach customers as well as internal communication. D365 customer services dashboard.jpg

Social media found its first foothold in most organizations through Marketing or PR, but has since expanded beyond those groups into teams like Customer Service and Sales. Service agents can meet customers on the channel of their choice to solve problems effectively. Sales teams can gather intelligence, source new leads, and build credibility through social selling. Employees in any role can leverage social insights to better understand the voice of the customer.

Microsoft Social Engagement, a part of Dynamics 365, helps your organization harness the power of social media to achieve real business results – not just Likes and Shares. Here, we’ll dive into how Microsoft Social Engagement empowers employees in Sales and Customer Service by augmenting what’s available in each of those Dynamics 365 applications to create more personalized customer engagements.

Build seller credibility

Today’s sales force isn’t just mobile: they’re social, too. The rich landscape of communication channels available has made things complicated, but has also opened up a myriad of possibilities for better, more informed engagement between buyers and sellers. Buyers use the wealth of information available to them online to learn more about the products they’re interested in or sellers they interact with, and social channels like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter are a huge piece of that. On the other side, sellers are using social channels to learn more about their customers and prospects and source new leads.

Microsoft Social Engagement empowers sales teams to sell more by leveraging social media through personalized, actionable smart recommendations from the newly released Social Selling Assistant. Social Selling Assistant, available through Microsoft AppSource, leverages the power of Azure Machine Learning to recommend content to share and keep you informed about your company, competitors, or customers on social. Best of all, Social Selling Assistant’s built-in intelligence and integration with the Dynamics 365 for Sales application means it takes only a few minutes each day for your sellers to build a credible social presence and learn what’s top-of-mind for customers.

Identify prospects and generate new leads

With artificial intelligence and machine learning, social media posts become leads through Microsoft Social Engagement and Dynamics 365 for Sales. We’ve developed the technology to detect intent in any social media post, with purchase intent being one indicator sellers can capitalize on. Machine learning trains the application to identify incoming posts with purchase intent, and feedback refines the results over time so they’re tailored for your organization. Instead of wasting time manually sorting through social media noise, posts can be automatically routed as leads into the Sales application, meaning your sales team doesn’t lose time switching back and forth between multiple applications and can address opportunities quickly.

Care for customers on whichever channel they choose

Like sales, the customer service process is more complex than ever, with phone, email, chat, and social all in the mix of channels your customers can choose to reach out. And with criticisms and complaints being so visible on social channels, what used to be a simple customer service issue now has the potential to become a major PR problem if an angry tweet reaches the right people. Customers expect a response to social media questions and complaints about service issues (many of them looking for that response in less than 24 hours), and many organizations face a great challenge in mounting a full-scale, omni-channel customer service team that can support these growing media.

Simplify service with intelligence

Microsoft Social Engagement enables effective omni-channel care by simplifying the process for service agents. From automatic intent detection for information requests, support requests, and complaints to smart sentiment and the ability to automatically route social posts as cases, agents can focus on delivering excellent customer service in a timely manner. If information requests, support requests and complaints aren’t the right categories for your organization, Microsoft Social Engagement offers the ability to create custom tags for categories that matter most to your team, and a few manual categorizations up front allow machine learning to start working, automatically tagging and routing the posts in your custom categories to Dynamics 365 for Customer Service to be resolved, or assigning them for triage right from Microsoft Social Engagement.

Not every word or phrase has the same connotation for each organization (think: the idea of a “kill” for a video game could be positive, while it has negative meaning in most other contexts), so while sentiment tagging in MSE is automated for 19 languages, it also operates with the same machine learning capabilities as intent and tagging—a little bit of feedback helps tailor the solution to your needs. With these capabilities, it’s easy for service agents to focus on the social posts that matter most without getting distracted by false positives.

Sales, Service, and Social with the power of Dynamics 365

Microsoft Social Engagement is included with most Dynamics 365 Application and Plan subscriptions at no extra cost, so everyone in your organization can have better, more personalized engagement with customers on social media.

Entrepreneurship, Microsoft Modern Business Solutions, Small Business, Training , Development and Empowerment

The entrepreneur and ICT

MSME Smart Business Solutions from Scimitar Global Services Limited.jpg

“Entrepreneurship has traditionally been defined as the process of designing, launching and running a new business, which typically begins as a small business, such as a start up company , offering a product, process or service for sale or hire. The people who create these businesses are called entrepreneurs. It has been defined as the “capacity and willingness to develop, organize and manage a business venture along with any of its risks in order to make a profit. While definitions of entrepreneurship typically focus on the launching and running of businesses, due to the high risk involved in launching a start-up, a significant proportion of businesses have to close, due to “lack of funding, bad business decisions, an economic crisis – or a combination of all of these or due to lack of market demand. In the 2000s, the definition of “entrepreneurship” expanded to explain how and why some individuals (or teams) identify opportunities, evaluate them as viable and then decide to exploit them, whereas others do not and, in turn, how entrepreneurs use these opportunities to develop new products or services, launch new firms or even new industries and create wealth. Recent advances stress the fundamentally uncertain nature of the entrepreneurial process, because although opportunities exist their existence cannot be discovered or identified prior to their actualization into profits. What appears as a real opportunity ex ante might actually be a non-opportunity or one that cannot be actualized by entrepreneurs lacking the necessary business skills, financial or social capital.”… ( credit to Wikipedia)

One thing i want to add here is the part of the entrepreneur and ICT. Entrepreneurs are recognized as important drivers of economic and social progress, and rapidly growing entrepreneurial enterprises are viewed as important sources of innovation, employment and growth. That innovation today is definitely tied to technology.

As entrepreneurs and business owners we must continue bridge the gaps and reduce the challenges within our business environment with technology available to us today.  I really like the way Fate Foundation put it on their blog : ”  From the fish seller downtown at the market putting calls through to her suppliers, notifying them of her depleting stock; to the shoe-maker at the corner of a street calling customers to inform them of their ready-to-pick-up shoes; to the dressmaker who uses messaging apps and social media platforms to display and sell her products; and the working professional who orders lunch from online food delivery companies, technology with the added benefit of the internet and various information & communication technology tools is gradually becoming an integral  part of the Nigerian business environment and our lives.”

The increase in mobile phone access and the introduction of smartphones have also increased access to the internet on the go. Just a few years ago, you had to visit an internet cafe to gain access to the internet. Today, it is not uncommon to see people standing on the street or sitting in a waiting room buried in their phones either responding to emails, visiting social networking sites or getting official work done from their different communication gadgets.” …(credit to Fate Foundation :How ICT Is Influencing the Rise of Entrepreneurship in Nigeria)

I just couldn’t think of a better way to put better. So i will leave it there and thus continue to point us entrepreneurs to the dangling-right-before-our-noses low hanging fruits, like your phone!  Yes that your  Smart phone!  That’s a mobile  advertising tool and not for selfies and chats alone. It is very important that we understand the need to use what we have to market our brand.  Funds for marketing as a small and medium enterprise is hard to come by now especially in this recession.  Have you tried to get a loan, grant or other investment support , it can be likened to one going to meet a native doctor when his demand will be an eagle’s egg, the teeth of an ant and the tooth of a life lion.  Not until now that Lagos State Government through its LSETF is giving out loans at single digits to entrepreneurs. The first ! And i hope other states will do same.  Nigeria Association of Small and Medium Scale Enterprises NASME Lagos is also helping entrepreneurs  who are members like me to process the LSETF grants. So contact NASME here +234 813 833 3998. Remember to say you got this information from Scimitar Global Services Limited( SGSL). We are a member of the Faculty.

So we need to look inwards and see some other tools  and services within reach like our GSM phones and Internet data,  laptops, tablets, social media (Facebook, Twitter,  Instagram and  LinkedIn) to market our businesses.

Nasme TPM tech options slide.jpg

We need to reduce our Social media activities around the government, President Buhari this and that, EFCC this and That.  corruption here, recovered loot there and channel more efforts to pushing our brands with these tools. I am not saying they are not important or worthy causes but i think the time spent on that may be better spent on pushing your products and services like the big brands out there. They are on social media too pushing even with all the money they have.

We also need to understand the importance of  Four “P”s of marketing as it applies to  smallRewrite-the-Ps-of-marketing and medium Enterprises and the activities around the “P”s required to push a brand. As an Entrepreneur and Business Owner you MUST understand the four P’s of Marketing  and it has nothing to do with running around begging the customers with your product in hand!  You have to create the right Product , Promote it at the right Price through the right channels(Place).

These are the 4 P’s of Marketing.  We finished the session with a charge. See the screen shot.

Simplify your business processes from quotation to cash without switching applications. #Microsoft Dynamics 365!

Microsoft 2.jpg

Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Financials is a business management solution that’s connecting people and processes like never before. From day one, it makes ordering, selling, invoicing, and reporting easier and faster.

It centralizes your data from accounting, sales, purchasing, inventory, and customer interactions, giving you an accurate end-to-end view of your business. Add reports with a click. Create powerful dashboards to perform advanced analytics. And do it all from a familiar interface using the Office tools you already know, like Outlook, Word, and Excel. We’ve already helped customers connect their business to make better decisions using this cloud-based solution.

ab062add9d7a2ecee75b5a6cbc0c5d7f.png

Connect your people and processes with a single, unified solution, so data can be quickly and easily shared with key people throughout the company. Free your business and your people from the limitations of multiple, disconnected solutions and the inefficient employee workarounds that waste hours every week.  Automate critical processes with easy-to-create workflows and audit trails that secure processes without adding complexity. As you grow, it’s easy to add applications and configure Dynamics 365 for Financials to fit business needs or industry demands.

Functions like payroll, banking, and CRM systems are just as integrated, so your people can share the most current data and respond to customer requests faster with the most accurate information.RW6AMm.png

It’s time to rid your business of siloed systems that can’t talk to each other and waste your people’s time. We can help you deploy Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Financials—it’s a single solution that can manage your financials, sales, customer service, and operations. Easily connect to external systems and third-party applications like payroll, banking apps, CRM systems, or custom APIs.

RW6FEn.png

Scimitar Global Services Limited in partnership with Microsoft is bringing to your doorsteps an all in one suite which is a combination of both Office 365, CRM and ERP for a synergized business ecosystem. Our team can show you how easy it is to simplify your business processes when you can go from quote to cash without switching applications. Set up customers or vendors, create quotes, process orders, and submit invoices without leaving your inbox.

Growing businesses often outgrow their basic accounting software that are unable to keep up with increased inventory and transactions, lack integration with other line-of-business systems, and have reporting limitations. Customers using legacy ERP systems feel the pain around scalability and mobility.

Take a minute to identify if your financial system has what it takes to make the most of new opportunities.

Here are signs that your current financial solutions won’t be ready to handle additional growth.

  • Reporting is complicated and provides insufficient information
  • Duplicate data entry into multiple systems is a daily routine
  • Accounting occurs in Excel, not your financial system
  • Systems are disconnected and information is siloed
  • Lack of secure workflows and audit trails increase risk

A new solution doesn’t mean hours of training or disruption of key processes. By using familiar Office tools your people already know, everyone gets up to speed quickly and without extensive training. Applications like Outlook, Word, and Excel provide the comprehensive and reassuring experience that gives employees confidence. Dynamics 365 for Financials lets you handle the most common business processes from day one. There’s no need to slow down processes like creating quotes, invoices, purchase orders, or reports on current cash flow.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is the next generation of intelligent business applications that enable organizations to grow, evolve, and transform. To help get you up and running quickly, Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Financials is sold by a network of reselling partners like Scimitar Global Services Limited that offers both technical know-how and industry expertise.

Video Banking : The next chapter in Bank’s digital transformation! Ain’t we lagging behind as usual?

004_vidyo_-future.jpg

In Q1 2016, Efma, a not-for-profit association of 3,300 retail financial services companies in more than 130 countries, and Vidyo, a leading visual collaboration provider Vidyo conducted a series of Think Tank meetings to understand the role that video banking plays in the digital transformation of banks. Sixty-three banking professionals from 24 countries participated in the meetings.
Additional quantitative data was collected regarding attitudes toward video banking via an online survey that was conducted in Q1 2016.Respondents included 136 bankers from 52 countries. This report consolidates the outcomes of these two activities and integrates primary information gathered from Vidyo’s experience in implementing video banking systems with banks around the globe.

The results of our survey strongly suggest that video bank solutions would be a welcome addition to existing options, with 93 percent of survey participants responding that they felt video banking would have a “Positive” or “Strongly Positive” impact on customer satisfaction.

This indication of consumer enthusiasm and high level of interest in video banking makes perfect sense considering how today’s free video conferencing apps such as Google Hangouts, Skype and Facetime are being embraced by the general public as a trusted and effective means of communication. The time is now for the widespread adoption of video banking…..” culled from a publication from Vidyo and Efma.

Bringing it back home they also stated that  “When customers and bank staff engage in banking transactions or consultations through remote video collaboration sessions, there seems to be an obvious solution as it offers more convenience to customers, since they can make their transactions from the comfort of their homes instead of traveling to the bank.

Video Banking 1

A choice not available for non-resident Nigerians and like they rightly pointed based on the trends and adoption , the time is now! Providing live online video interaction to your customers enriches the customer journey and builds trust and brand loyalty. Using the VidyoWorks API’s and contact center reference design, We can video enable your high value client services in as little as a few weeks, without in-house video technology expertise. Ease of use and convenience flatten the adoption curve.
Employees are quickly proficient and there’s no intimidation factor for clients to interact over video. They simply click, join and have highly personal and effective interactions with your organization’s customer care professionals.

Vidyo banking 2

Video banking enables new and valuable engagement opportunities, such as the ability to include people who would not be able to attend in-person meetings, like remote subject matter experts or customer family members.

Verifiable Banking references according to the publication by Vidyo:  put Video Banking as the next best thing in Banking. Please read on:

“One successful early adopter of online video banking is IndusInd Bank, one of the fastest growing next-generation private sector banks in India. Induslnd launched their Video Branch service in June 2014, and made it available to their customers via desktop and mobile devices.
IndusInd Bank customers are now able to connect with their branch manager, relationship manager or with a centralized video branch executive. Patrons of the bank who are not residents of India are also able to experience this personalized video banking service from outside the country.

003_Vidyo_ref.jpg

“Our Video Branch ‘face-to-face’ online banking customer service, powered by Vidyo, is the next frontier of banking and brings our branch managers and centralized banking services closer to our customers with highly personal interaction. VidyoWorksTM is the only solution that could deliver on the promise of high quality connectivity from any location, on any device over any network and we are pleased to offer this very high-quality, easy to use service to our customers.”…….. Romesh Sobt (Managing Director and CEO,IndusInd Bank).

The offering encompasses all banking services that had previously been only available via IndusInd Bank Phone Banking. Additionally, Bank customers can choose to make other kinds of financial transactions such as opting for fixed deposits or recurring deposits, or transferring funds through NEFT and RTGS.
The Induslnd Bank launch was supported by an extensive nationwide advertising campaign and the new service is now positioned as a key innovation, creating a competitive advantage for the bank. Since the launch, IndusInd had seen a
massive ramp-up of the service and by mid-2015 the system was supporting 1,000 daily video calls and experiencing higher than 65 percent repeat usage.

Vidyo office.png

Also see the extract on another Video banking reference : “Barclays Bank. To provide a new, secure, video-based service so that their customers could engage in banking activities wherever and whenever, Barclays Retail Bank launched its Video Anywhere service in the U.K. in December 2014. Today, in addition to the availability of bank representatives in a growing number of Barclays branches, the 24/7 service offers customers to speak to a video banker that can be accessed via smartphone, tablet or computer at a time and place convenient to them. At Barclays, video banking has become a powerful tool in deepening relationships with Clients and Customer; allowing multiple video bankers to be in one place enabling quick and easy sharing of best practice whilst also providing workforce flexibility without the constraints of the traditional Retail Network operating times.
The Barclays Video Anywhere service, initially offered only to Barclays Premier customers, will soon be available to the broader Barclays customer base. The phased roll out over the next 6 months targeting specific customer profiles such as frequent retail network users, digitally savvy but nervous adopters and
customers with accessibility requirements”.

Simon Separghan, Director of Global Contact Centres & Omni Channels of Barclays Retail Bank was also quoted in this report that “Customers continue to demand human touch and empathy and there is significant benefit to provide not only a voice, but a face of Barclays. The majority of our customers who experienced video banking now demand that their future servicing activity takes place via a video interaction. And If I take a like-for-like servicing request via traditional telephony vs. video banking, the NPS is almost double. It has incredible value for us as an organization.”

Scimitar Global Services Limited (SGSL) in partnership with Vidyo and Granteq is offering  Video Banking solution to Banks in Nigeria and all players in the financial services industry to leverage this technology to add a face to face interaction in addition to the existing channels to maintain customer loyalty, trust and satisfaction which all assures revenue.  So feel free to contact us immediately for a demo and next steps. Our Business consultants will be very glad to come and and show the benefits of Video engagement in Banking. We strongly believe that adding video will reduce fraud.
