Deal to provide Dealer Management Systems for a global vehicle manufacturer will serve more than 15,000 users across 1,000 franchised dealerships in China, Japan and Asia. For SaaSplaza, the deal will be worth more than USD$10 million over the next five years.
In partnership with incadea, SaaSplaza will deliver and manage the Cloud Services that power incadea's full Dealer Management System (DMS) product portfolio, which is built on Microsoft Dynamics NAV and CRM.
The incadea portfolio includes incadea.myengine, CRM solution and the mobile solution for the customer facing processes in sales and aftersales. This contract also includes incadea's business intelligence and analytics solution for centralised business data consolidation at a national level, to enable improved forecasting and planning.
Cloud delivery for the solution was chosen by the global customer to simplify the roll out process, to guarantee consistency across all dealers and to ensure that each dealer is linked in real-time to the more than 30 back-end systems of the car manufacturer.
Deployment of the systems for several countries has already begun in the Asia-Pacific region, where the deal covers Vietnam, Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, China and India.
"We are delighted to be working with incadea to support the growth of a major customer across the entire Asia Pacific region," said Berend-Jan van Maanen, SaaSplaza CEO. "Our Cloud Services coupled with incadea's market leading software is a powerful combination, delivering agility, scalability and increased productivity to the automotive industry."
SaaSplaza Cloud Services combine Microsoft System Center, Microsoft Active Directory with SaaSplaza support services, SLA and Dynamics engineering experience to create a complete lifecycle management system for Microsoft Dynamics applications.
Patrick Katenkamp, CEO of incadea, commented: "Selecting a Cloud Services provider once our customer had chosen to go Cloud was a simple decision. Having worked with SaaSplaza before we know they have the capability to deliver large scale Cloud Dynamics deployments such as this, with complex requirements, efficiently and effectively."
