 Customer Transformation 

Project examples

Innovative automobile marketing

Mercedes-Benz AG is among the major suppliers of premium passenger vehicles. These vehicles are no longer being purchased in traditional car dealerships; they are also increasingly being bought online. Our task was optimizing the customer journey and the entire marketing funnel to address customers more individually.
Salesforce Audience Studio and Marketing Cloud were selected as the central platform for this. This made it possible to provide an agile, closed DevOps approach for the design, implementation, and global roll-out of a digital marketing solution. This included, for example, optimized customer segmentation allowing larger target groups to be addressed more specifically.
Over two years we have guided a wide variety of projects in the field of personalization and retargeting to success in more than 37 markets. For example, the opening rate of e-mails was increased significantly, which led to a higher click-through rate of up to 520 percent, among other successes.

Standardized "Market to Invoice" process on the basis of Salesforce

Leadec is a global leader among service specialist for the manufacturing industry. The system landscape was fragmented; additionally, operations varied from region to region. Our task was to cover the "market to invoice" processes from the customer inquiry to invoicing globally in one system. 
All global sales and service settlement processes were harmonized to do so. The derived IT functionality requirements were visualized in Salesforce. Subsequently, there was a major focus on onboarding, training, and data migration. 
This allowed a fast roll-out to be achieved despite the fact that the company is extremely decentralized with more than 200 locations around the world. Customer satisfaction also rose thanks to the new system, largely encouraged by the cost cutting which was achived and the increased efficiency and transparancy during the entire sales and service process.

Implementation of SAP Sales Cloud

Kamax is one of the world's leading automotive suppliers for high-strength fasteners. Our task was the global implementation of Sales Cloud at its 12 locations to bolster international cooperations and make sales processes more efficient.
In accordance with our approach of "from strategy up to realization", three of PwC Germany's practice groups worked hand-in-hand here. Our strategic consulting reorganized the sales organization, our management consulting defined the sales process, and finally our technology consulting implemented the system. 
Our SAP-CX team contributed its expertise in the configuration and integration of the system and took care of the data migration and change management, along with the corresponding training activities. 
An initial version of the SAP Sales Cloud as a component of the SAP CX Suite went live after just eight weeks. The components of the solution customized for Kamax include the SAP Jam, SAP Cloud Connector, and SAP Cloud Platform Integration modules.

 HR & YOU  

Process

At the beginning of the trainee program, you will take part in an onboarding week during which you gather all important information about PwC as an employer and can network with your future team members.

You can decide between two tracks for the program itself by getting to know four departments in the People and Organization practice group (three of which for five months and one for three months). Find out more about both tracks here in the slider. 

After HR & YOU, you are given a permanent employee contract and join PwC as an Associate. 

Your stations if you decide on Track I

  • Change Management: Strategies, processes, and technologies alone do not lead our customers to their desired result. It is the people within the company who have to accept, promote, and realize the changes. We support our customers in not losing sight of the needs of their employees during their transformation.
  • HR Function Transformation: In an evolving working world, the skills of employees are becoming a decisive and scarce commodity. We help our customers establish future-oriented HR departments and make them true contributors to the corporate and talent agenda.
  • HR Managed Services: Human resources are scarce and digitalization requirements are increasing steadily, especially during transaction processes. We help our customers concentrate on their core competencies while we support their HR department efficiently and professionally. We attend to tasks along the entire HR life cycle, from recruiting to onboarding, take on operational tasks such as payroll accounting, and even assume roles in HR management.
  • HR IT (SAP SuccessFactors): Using the SAP SuccessFactors cloud solution, we create the technological basis to intelligently digitalize and optimize the HR processes of our customers. We merge functional and technical requirements precisely within our integrated approach and monitor the changes using an approach for transformation and change management which is tailored to the needs of our clients.

Your stations if you decide on Track II

  • Culture & Leadership: Our team supports organizations, teams, and individuals understand the challenges of leadership and human nature better within their organizations and take a forward-looking approach in dealing with them. We are a team of passionate HR experts, organizational psychologists, and coaches, and we take a holistic view of the dynamics of human behavior while maintaining a focus on the people. Our work is based on evidence and current scientific findings to collaborate with our customers to shape the working world of the future to be human-centric, inclusive, and inspiring.
  • People in Deals: In the event of corporate transactions and restructuring, the carefully considered transfer of employees is one of the key steps for successful corporate acquisitions. Employee-related opportunities and risks can be measured precisely by means of HR Due Diligence and thus be considered in the relevant negotiations. Our team supports our customers here and during all other transaction phases.
  • People & Data Analytics: The amount of data which is generated these days – in particular personal data – represents huge potential for companies. The systematic analysis of this data can create a pivotal competitive advantage for our customers. Many aspects of our clients' organizations can be optimized and advanced in a targeted manner based on evidence, especially using personal data. These aspects include performance management, employee commitment, and talent development, among other factors.
  • Reward & Benefits: Companies need modern compensation concepts which ensure a reasonable balance of factors such as economic efficiency, attractiveness, and fairness. Our customers find a reliable partner in PwC which bears the whole market in mind in addition to the perspective of local compensation and can provide them with comprehensive consultation with regard to the remuneration of (top) managers.
