The year 2017 counts among the most successful in BSI history: the software company gained prestigious new customers in the DACH region, among them insurance companies such as Baloise Life Liechtenstein, Concordia, ERGO, Rheinland and Visana, as well as financial companies including SIX and WIR Bank, and also omnichannel retailers such as Globus and Sprüngli. “We are pleased that our Indigo release has been so well received and that we were able to grow 10% along with our customers. This confirms our approach of customer proximity and drives us on to continue developing our software products,” stated Markus Brunold, BSI CEO.
CRM as a competitive advantage
BSI invested a great deal of time and energy in the latest release so as to be able to continue impressing customers in the future. Feature and Service Release 3 (FSR3) of BSI CRM Indigo scored points with improvements in ergonomics and performance, as well as useful functions for various industries. Customer requests, such as the depiction of the new data protection ordinance with its own erasing concept, which comply with data protection rules and storage obligations, are also provided in the latest release. “Our product development team uses a variety of sources to keep the software innovative. One particularly important source is the dialogue with our customers. We work together in our industry communities to prioritize suggestions. Through this co-creation, our products are constantly improving and are tailored to customer needs,” according to Markus Brunold, who went on to add: “Our goal for the future is to offer customer journeys that our customers’ competitors do not yet have – with BSI software as the platform.”
