Mayo Hardware

The Big Middle was chosen by Broadway Property to design and implement a cloud-based customer relationship management solution with opportunity and sales pipeline visibility and tracking. This rapid 1-month project saw the same team collaborating with the client from discovery to go-live and beyond with maintenance and support. 

The Case

Synopsis 

Mayo Hardware, an outdoor lifestyle, safety, security, and hardware supplier and distributor, engaged with The Big Middle to enhance their customer service offerings through implementing Salesforce Service Knowledge Base, Service Cloud Voice, and Service Cloud Email-to-Case. Although Mayo Hardware is headquartered interstate, the principal factors in the selection of The Big Middle was our extensive experience in Salesforce Service Cloud and our key values of Transparency and Ingenuity that allowed for the development of long-term meaningful working relationships based on trust. This large enhancement project has seen the same team collaborating with the client since day one, working with the client to manage their 5-phase Salesforce Service Cloud upgrade.

  1. Streamlined Knowledge management, repository, and processes. 

  2. Connected Knowledge and customer service processes to improve business experiences. 

  3. Improved business experience for customer service voice calls and seamless integration into Salesforce. 

  4. Efficient management of customer service support cases originating from emails and calls.
