“CloudJungle have been fantastic at adapting to our ever-changing ways of working, requirements and business changes. Very good team that works in a very agile and reactive way with enough governance in place that suits our business.”
Aaron Butcher, CIO Lightspeed Broadband
By providing a user-friendly experience, our innovative platform allows customers to quickly and easily connect to the Lightspeed fibre broadband service. Our state-of-the-art system integrates with a fibre availability checker, direct debit payment system, and installation team calendars, providing customers with a seamless digital journey from start to finish.
The customer service team’s telephone system is built into Salesforce Service Cloud so they have all of their key information at their fingertips. If customer prefers live chat - no problem they are connected to the website and the customer portal.
CloudJungle has created an automated scheduling and inventory system to simplify the process of managing multiple installers across multiple towns with different work types. The system uses the Salesforce Field Service Platform to schedule installation jobs, while the Inventory system tracks all required equipment from purchase to warehouse delivery and through to installation. This helps to streamline the process, making it easier for installers to stay organised and optimises the installation experience for the customer.
The accounts are built in Salesforce too! Direct debits are triggered automatically when the installer confirms the connection on their mobile app. Bank feeds are then synced with payment schedules and thousands of transactions are managed daily by automation, making accounting easier.
The sales teams can take the customer on the order journey. By analysing leads in Salesforce Sales Cloud along with the service appointments in Field Service Lightning, the sales teams can plan targeted activity aligned to both business potential and engineer availability.
With the best will in the works life does not always take us on the happy path. However, The Lightspeed Operations Centre utilises pre-configured communications tools within Salesforce to notify affected customers and service agents of any outages or maintenance windows. This helps to ensure that everyone is kept up-to-date on any issues that may arise.
A HR App installed into Salesforce is helping Lightspeed manage their growing headcount by tracking potential candidates through the recruitment process, providing payroll and expense management which is automated with finance. This also facilitates personal development and managing the off boarding process when the time comes.
