How a midsize construction company built a new client base.

In order to thrive on a smarter planet, midsize businesses need the ability to discover and take advantage of new growth opportunities as quickly as they happen. Take VCC, for instance. Headquartered in Arkansas, this 225-person construction company saw an opportunity to expand beyond their core retail construction business into healthcare and public sector projects. The key to their expansion was mobility: for VCC to succeed, project managers needed the ability to generate new leads on the road. So they turned to iEnterprises, an IBM Business Partner, to develop a smartphone-enabled customer relationship management (CRM) solution based on IBM collaboration software. Having mobile access to sales leads, contacts, proposal databases and other vital information helps enable project managers to pursue a new business opportunity at a moment's notice. The solution resulted in a 40 percent increase in new business, and saved an average of 400 employee-hours per month.
