Amway ANZ Goes Live with Onyx CRM Software Web-based CRM Helps Leading Direct Selling Company Improve Marketing ROI and Enhance Customer Service
SYDNEY, August 27, 2003- Onyx® Software Corp. (Nasdaq: ONXS), worldwide leader in successful customer relationship management (CRM), today announced Amway of Australia has successfully implemented the latest web version of Onyx Employee Portal (OEP), version 4.5.
Amway will use the Onyx application to consolidate and centralise information about its Independent Business Owners (IBOs) and to automate marketing campaigns and processes both for its Australian & New Zealand business. Amway of Australia’s roll out falls on the heels of the recent implementation at Amway Korea Ltd. in February this year. Amway deployed OEP to approximately 300 users in South Korea as part of the overall global deployment of Onyx.
"Amway is focused on building, and rewarding, lifelong relationships with our Independent Business Owners,” said Michial Coldwell, general manager operations, Amway Australia & New Zealand. “We will be able to leverage the Onyx application to ensure that we maintain a high level of service to our Independent Business Owners and increase profitability per IBO by tracking overall performance and dedicating our resources to those areas that give maximum results. With Onyx, we will continue to lead in the Direct Selling industry by providing highly personalized service to improve overall success.”
One of the factors driving Amway of Australia was its interest in capitalising on the success that Amway Korea has experienced with the Onyx campaign management module. The campaign management tool enables Amway to run new marketing campaigns. The new campaigns can, in turn, more effectively help individual business owners achieve their monthly targets and improve overall marketing return on investment. The Onyx professional services team was able to quickly implement Onyx on time and on budget and fully integrate it with several systems, including Amway of Australia’s AS400, Business Intelligence system, and Amway of Australia’s custom EDM system used for sending all outbound information.
“The implementation of Onyx at Amway of Australia is great example of how the flexibility of our CRM platform allows customers to easily create a solution that is tailored to meet their specific needs,”said Basil Reilly, vice president, Onyx Australia/New Zealand. “Global customers like Amway were exactly who we had in mind when we made the investment in things like a Internet architecture, web-services enablement, and full Unicode support, and we’re excited to see how they’ve leveraged these features to provide a solution that is so critical to their business.”
