CHALLENGE

  • Davis came to Motii with a clear vision of what they wanted to achieve and highly capable teams 
  • Motii was tasked with turning the vision and processes into something that would work in Pipedrive without overcomplicating the process
  • Davis’s sales teams across the 3 countries operated separately with different processes

  • Sub-contractors, builders, architects, specifiers and end-clients all needed to be tracked to determine success rates of individual suppliers

  • Ensure standardisation across team processes for reporting purposes 
  • Implement a way to track suppliers success and failure across projects 
  • Implement project IDs, purchase order variance and quote types to make analysing like-for-like deals easy 
  • Motii created a custom solution leveraging the Pipedrive API that allowed Davis to easily create new suppliers and 

OUTCOME

  • Over a 12-week  implementation period, Motii worked closely with the Malaysian head office and Australian sales division to implement their vision
