“This is a huge step forward for our recall offering! Vinyl enabled us to streamline our processes and have a solution in production in one week. Processing 5,000 recall requests in one day would not have been possible via the standard IT development method. Vinyl saved the day! We will now have all our recall events utilize the Vinyl platform.” – Vinyl User/Business Executive

Challenge

This global waste and recall management company traditionally processed product recall registrations via custom built applications integrated to call centers. Each recall required a unique, expensive, and time-consuming development effort to handle the complexity of global recalls. The company tried offshore outsourcing to cut development costs, but found difficulty communicating specifications and requirements, which only lengthened the development cycle. Their costs actually began to increase. Even worse, the additional time to deploy recall apps resulted in them losing business. Because the competitive landscape for the recall industry is crowded and margins are slim, streamlining and creating a scalable configurable solution was critical to ensuring a competitive advantage. Recall management’s biggest challenge is speed. Manufacturers must comply with strict federal regulations for the timing of consumer notifications, and winning recall bids means time is of the essence. This shortened timeframe required an extremely abbreviated development cycle.

A global distributor of a popular consumer product received multiple reports of skin irritation and chemical burns. Approximately 275,000 products were affected. The distributor contacted several recall companies demanding an expedited recall due to the danger this product posed to consumers. This recall management company knew their current call center process wouldn’t meet the requirements. They needed a different approach, and they needed it fast. The solution required the ability to upload images, multi-lingual support, automatic validation, automatic notification, and reporting, all while integrating with multiple backend systems.

Solution

In less than one week, Zudy built a recall app that allowed for self-registration, photo uploads, and automatic validation. Real-time validation was accomplished by integrating with Melissa dataNumverify, and Mailboxlayer. The app also updated their Crisis Management system and processed auto-email notifications through their SMTP mail server. Reporting metrics on type of device and browser used during recall submission were gathered from Google Analytics and combined with data from their Crisis Management system to feed into Birst reporting, providing complete visibility to management. The app also allowed entries in English, Spanish, and French to accommodate US, Mexican, and Canadian consumers. Call center reps could now see uploaded photos and consumer information, decide if the recalls were valid, and approve or deny claims with a click of a button, automatically notifying consumers whether or not recalls were accepted and next steps.

The results were remarkable. 70,000 total users accessed the app. 10,000 users completed a recall request through the app, where only 800 phoned the call center. Thanks to Vinyl this company was able to quickly streamline a recall process and handle a huge submission volume, allowing for another big win for their revenue! They have created several other Vinyl recall apps and have chosen Vinyl to handle all recall processes in the future.

“We built an application that spanned across key enterprise systems and closed a significant gap for one of our most important capabilities. Integration with Salesforce, home grown systems, and other enterprise data sources was no issue.” – Vinyl User/Business Executive

This global media enterprise needed an application to enable users to efficiently search, book and manage on-air DJ talent for paid on-air sponsorship opportunities. Historically, each individual market segment had an individual siloed process for documenting on-air sponsorships, using Excel spreadsheets or Word documents. Large multi-market campaigns had no way to determine which talent was available for their business needs. This often led to missed revenue opportunities. In addition, there was no process to track or report on sponsorship revenue or forecast its value to executive management.

In 38 hours, Zudy built an application, connecting to 4 cloud-based data sources and 1 on premise server without a single line of code. Every market now enters all talent data and availability into the new sponsorships application. The Vinyl sponsorship app enables teams to provide Advertisers and Campaign Managers options for on-air talent sponsorships within seconds, eliminating their prior issue that led to missed revenue. Workflow emails are sent automatically to notify users of requests, schedule details, bookings, category conflict of interests and contract confirmations. Notes and a detailed history of every campaign are now archived in the app, providing the business with a record of all past sponsorships and overall trends. The new application also tracks and reports revenue stream to aid management in future revenue projections and forecasting.

Sponsorship revenue increased by 30% with use of this new Vinyl application.

“You turned one of our biggest pain points into an easy, quick automated process that moves at the speed of our business.” – Vinyl User/Global Manufacturing Executive

This Global Manufacturing Enterprise struggled with their outdated return management process and application. Prior to partnering with Zudy, this Manufacturing Organization’s return management process worked through a legacy ERP system from Epicore and an outdated CRM system from OnContact. Employees had to initiate a ‘return’ in the CRM which was poorly integrated with their ERP System. The process was flawed and there was no tracking or notifications available. Without the ability to track returns or control inventory using obsolete systems, the process was slow and error prone – resulting in extremely low customer satisfaction and delayed financial reporting.

In 1 week, using Vinyl, Zudy built a new state-of-the-art application that keeps data in the appropriate system and gives employees complete visibility into all stages of the return process from a single screen. Today, the entire process is web and mobile accessible, providing a flexible user experience and 24/7 access. The new Vinyl application allows users to search order history and create return orders in one centralized location rather than navigating multiple platforms. To streamline the process further, Zudy worked with the management team to incorporate proper billing and inventory control into the app as well. Now all members of the team from sales to repair employees to purchasing to shipping to Finance are all in the loop from initiation of the repair order to fulfillment. The app allows customers to work with the business to know exactly what stage of the process their return order is in, which has resulted in higher customer satisfaction and lower costs.

“In less than 1 week, Zudy modernized our Travel Management process into an easy to use application that keeps pace with the speed of our business.”  – Vinyl User/Business Executive

This Global Laboratory Giant needed a modern solution to replace their outdated and laborious Lotus Domino application for travel management. Prior to engaging with Zudy, each end user was required to login to three separate systems throughout the travel management process. All request submissions, comments and approvals needed to be input on a desktop/laptop, as there was no mobile functionality. The antiquated process was delaying business, wasting time and money – they needed a solution fast.

Zudy delivered a modern and mobile travel management application in less than 20 hours. What was a time-consuming and tiresome process, now takes only minutes – from request submission, to approval, to booking. End users and managers now have the ability to initiate or update any part of the process from any device and receive push notifications if preferred. Managers access the application from anywhere using their mobile device, and can approve requests in seconds by clicking a button within the generated travel request email. The app also provides a live mapping feature that tracks travel for users, which benefits each traveler further by pulling in location information from Google and offering suggestions on nearest hotel options based on the address in their approved request. 3000 end users now manage travel in an application built by Zudy in 1 week. What are YOU waiting for?

Not only can you notify individuals by email, phone call and texting – users can also notify specific groups or the entire organization instantly with a click of a button. With Zudy, this entertainment enterprise improved business functionality, reduced costs, built significant efficiences, and improved overall user experience.

“You did it! Our minds and imagination opened up to ‘what can be done’ as opposed to just getting ‘something’ done.” – Vinyl User/Business Executive

In just 37 hours Zudy enabled this tech institute to achieve what they were unable to deliver in 2 years. They needed a custom monitoring solution to manage emergency backup across their entire landscape. Their critical systems monitoring pulled data from both 3rd party data sources and internal data sources. They needed to bring all data together in real time. This was an urgent project that had been stalled for years. Zudy delivered the project in less than 1 week,

Zudy integrated data from three existing sources, enabling integration without replicating any data on their systems of record. The application sits on top of mulitple data sources and analyzes data every second monitoring for critical failures or issues. The app provides immediate notifications to users to communicate system failures or red flags. In addition to using the app to view data in real-time, users have access to search and access any specific time period to trobleshoot or see the full data story. All notifications are available by phone, text, or email and preferences are easily updated. The Vinyl application has granular drill down views for all ranges of energy peaks, usage and custom information as required for each specific user.
