Create Contracts digitally

Vodafone Management honors Projektteam with „Well Done!“ Award.

Framework agreements for business customers are now ready within one day. Employees and external partners have received the Well Done! award from the Vodafone management for the outstanding team effort in implementing the project. With the new price configurator, the sales department can digitally create mobile phone framework contracts and send them immediately by e-mail. The release is done electronically. By comparison, internal processing previously took an average of more than 30 working days.

Within the framework of the project, the Sickel team designed and implemented an extensive webinar series as virtual live training. In a very short time the new pricing configurator was successfully introduced to more than 500 sales employees. The webinars have decisively contributed to the acceptance and sustainable use of the system and new processes in sales. The “Well done!” Award was created by the management of Vodafone Germany as an award for outstanding team performance. The ExCo awards it once a month and thus honours project teams that have achieved a particular success.
