SAATBAU - THE COMPANY
SAATBAU LINZ, headquartered in Leonding, is the largest cooperative organization for plant breeding and seed multiplication in Austria. 3100 farmers are the owners of the cooperative. They produce seeds of diverse crops for the Austrian and foreign seed market.
After a strong growth phase, Saatbau Linz was looking for a suitable CRM solution that would meet the high demands of its diverse customer base. And for an IT service provider to accompany the digital transformation of the international company. Saatbau Linz evaluated 14 CRM products before finally choosing SAP Sales Cloud.
Following the successfully completed customer experience project, the team is already preparing a new measure: the introduction of an unprecedented e-commerce platform for seeds. Once again, an SAP product - SAP Commerce Cloud - and the All for One Customer Experience were convincing.
WE EVALUATED 14 CRM PRODUCTS IN ADVANCE. THE PROOF OF CONCEPT WITH SAP SALES CLOUD CONVINCED US - THIS IS THE RIGHT SOFTWARE FOR OUR COMPANY!
THE SAP COMMERCE CLOUD MET OUR REQUIREMENTS, ESPECIALLY IN TERMS OF INTERFACES AND INTEGRATION INTO OUR SYSTEM LANDSCAPE.
