“ TXSeries software provides much more availability and stability. ”
Fujiko Miyake, manager of the cross-functional retail (CFR) group at Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corp.
Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corp.
Founded in 1932, MFTBC is one of Asia’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturers. The business relies on a comprehensive service and parts system to help support its customers during and after the sales process. Within Japan, MFTBC has an integrated customer service organization. However, in its international operations, the business has a vast network of sales and service outlets providing customer service. The CFR group needed to make sure the new DMS could integrate the support processes for all of these organizations. Salespeople at the branch offices and at the company’s headquarters would use the new DMS, so it needed to be scalable and reliable.
The cross-functional retail (CFR) group within Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corp. (MFTBC) needed to create a new dealer management system (DMS) to help integrate subsidiary companies and improve customer satisfaction levels.
The CFR group worked with IBM® Global Business Services® and IBM Global Technology Services® to create the new DMS using IBM WebSphere® software.
The business can now support more than 5,000 users working at its domestic dealerships, even on weekends and holidays when it's especially busy.
