  3. 3. Customer Engagement and Relationship StrategyConcept• Microsoft Customer Engagement and Relationship Strategy is based on the execution of a model that allows add value to both active and inactive customers.• This model is called the 3 Tier Contact Model and it has three pillars: 1. Mid Market Relationship Program and LTV: Provides a reason to contact and helps connect with customer  Build relationship & trust For Inactive customers building a relationship starts even before they purchase for the first time. 2. Targeted Marketing: Helps selling. Be conscious and aware of when you are actively selling. This could be just “planting a seed” for what will be followed up on in 6 months time. Mid Market customers buy what benefits their business and addresses their needs – “value add” – Campaign messages must address pain points. 3. Data Validation: Better customer understanding and knowledge. Microsoft is reliant on the data in our system. Improve over time. Always update Siebel so that the next conversation is contextual and can reference what was discussed previously.• Build trust by looking after the customer interests, learning about their business requirements and providing value at each interaction• Build relationship depth by having regular contacts with multiple BDMs and TDMs and by offering solutions across the enterprise• Retain/Increase Penetration by offering the product/solution mix that matches the customer needs and by increasing mindshare within the corporation by maintaining the customer informed of new products and improvements• Increase Microsoft’s knowledge of the customer base by keeping high quality records of each customer interaction and by adhering to data quality standards and data requirements• Improve the Customer experience (CPE) by demonstrating sincere interest for the customer’s well being, responding promptly to their queries and complaints and by providing value 3
  4. 4. Customer Engagement and Relationship Strategy3 Tier Contact Model What Why 1.Reason to contact = Relationship Always add value – Building relationship Improve engagement and account CPE LTV determines – Account Portfolio assignment and contact frequency 2. Selling Targeted marketing means that you talk to the customer about things that they need. Maximize account revenue Campaign messages ensure that this is in the language and context of the customer 3. Deeper Customer understanding = Data We need to use every opportunity to obtain additional data about Improve account knowledge our customers and validate the data that we already have.Every component of the 3 Tier Contact Model is explained in detail later in this manual. 4
  5. 5. Execution through ActivitiesConcept• Contact with customers is based on the execution of activities in Siebel. This means that all interactions with accounts or contacts are registered in the Activity module in the CRM tool.• Here are some kinds of interactions: – Event Attendance – Dmail/Email – Follow-up calls – TPM Activities – IROs – Targets – Etc.• Activities in Siebel have a set of fields that both help understand the objective of those activities, and the result of the execution.• Interactions with customers can require further action (call to customer, reassign the activity to anyone else, etc) or can be informative only.• Informative activities give support to required action activities.Taxonomy• Activities have taxonomy to differentiate from each other.• Taxonomy helps identify the type of activity. It is registered in the DESCRIPTION field• Taxonomy is divided in segments that show: Fiscal Year, origin, type of activity, action, additional description: FiscalYear-Origin-Type-Action-Description E.g.: FY09-MMRP-WELC-RQA-Welcome MaySome examples* For a complete list of taxonomies, see appendix A 5
  6. 6. Execution through Activities What it looks like Status: Shows the activityCreate Oppty from status:Activity: If the execution • not started: it is not yetof the activity leads to the executed.creation of an opportunity, • In progress: it is beingthis button must be used to processed.create one and associate it • Done: it has been executedwith the activity. and closed. • Cancelled: it has been cancelled. Call Disposition: Only ifDescription: Helps the activity requires action.understand the activity This field registers feedbackpurpose. about the activity execution (No interest in subject, noComments: The CRM phone, interested, etc.)team can upload additionalinformation to make theactivity moreunderstandable. ISRs can Additional Information:write comments after this. same as Comments Remarks • The status of marketing initiatives is measured with activity execution by analyzing the activity fields. Therefore the correct fulfillment of the fields is critical. • The activity fields help the CRM team improve what is in Siebel. For example, activities with Call Disposition No Phone are separated to correct the telephone numbers of the companies related to those activities. 6
  7. 7. Mid Market Relationship Program (MMRP)Concept• The Mid Market Relationship Program is a customer engagement framework based on a proven contact strategy consisting of a series of consistently executed, highly relevant and timely customer communications mapped to the customer’s license lifecycle.• MMRP is a post sale program that creates a strong relationship with customers.• This program follows the license life cycle: from purchase to renewal of contract.• MMRP has four phases with specific messages at a specific time.• Every phase has customized material depending on: – License Type – Product – Country – ISR• Follow-up for all phases is done through call-activities in Siebel.Objectives:• Improve customer satisfaction and engagement with MS• Increase cross-sell and up-sell• Improve customer knowledge• Maximize renewal revenue rates• Maximize deploymentPhases – Timeline process• Welcome: Welcomes the customers  0-3 months after purchase.• Deploy: Checks if customers have already installed the product. Deployment tips are shared.  3-6 months after purchase.• Use: Provides tips to use Microsoft products and benefits properly so that the customers have a good experience with Microsoft solutions.  6-30 months after purchase.• Renew: Tries to guarantee the renewal of Software Assurance contracts .  30-36 months after purchase. 0 – 3 Months 3-6 Months 6-30 Months 30-36 Months Welcome/ Deploy Use Retain/ Activate Renew Cross-Sell/Up-Sell 7
  8. 8. Mid Market Relationship Program (MMRP) Remarks• MMRP provides a determinant reason to contact customers at a specific time and via a specific delivery channel (Phone, e-mail).• MMRP helps improve customer satisfaction through engagement, deployment and quality of communications.• Microsoft gets better renewal rates.• MMRP enables cross/up- sell  Increase sales 8
  9. 9. MMRP - WelcomeConcept• Welcomes the customers to the Microsoft volume licensing program.• A welcome kit with customized material is sent to customers. This kit can be e-mailed or direct mailed.• The kit includes a welcome letter with: • Customized messages for: – Purchases with or without Software Assurance. – Different license types: Enterprise agreement, Select or Open. • Summary of purchased licenses. • Step-by-step guide to register OPEN or MVLS products in the volume licensing webpage. • Software Assurance Benefits. • Web resources to implement products.• ISRs reinforce the materials with follow-up calls.Process – How to do it• Every time a customer purchases a new Microsoft product, two activities are uploaded into Siebel with a specific date to contact: • Welcome Kit activity: This is an informative activity that is created to register the email or direct mail sent to customer. • Welcome Call activity: This activity is created to reinforce Welcome kit through a follow up call. This activity has to be executed by the ISR.• When executing the call: • Check with the customer if the material was sent. • Talk about the benefits the customer has. • If the customer has not bought Software Assurance, talk about the benefits of buying Microsoft products with it. 9

  17. 17. MMRP Use – True-UpsConcept• True-ups is a benefit of Enterprise Agreement contracts.• When customers sign a new E.A., they declare and install the products they will use during the three year contract. However, customers might want to use additional products. They can install them at any time and pay the additional usage cost at the end of the first or second year. The payment is made only for future usage, i.e.: If a customer installs new products after six months of purchasing an Enterprise Agreement, the payment will be made at the end of the first year and only for the next remaining two years of contract.• This MMRP-Use call was created to check if customers have used additional products during the first or second year.• This call leverages Cross-sell and Up-sell, i.e.: If a customer has SQL Server and Office, a BI speech can be addressed.• Customers might not be aware of this benefit, therefore this touch can help improve the usage of true-ups.Touches• Four touches: Two at the end of the first year and two at the end of the second one:1. First year T-60: 60 days before first year of contract (Gives time to cross/up sell)2. First year T-30: 30 days before first year of contract (Follow up call to verify additional products and cross/up sell if at T-60 the customer is not sure or needs more time)3. Second year T-60: 60 days before second year of contract (Gives time to cross/up sell)4.

  23. 23. Data Quality – ProfilingConcept• Every month the CRM Team generates an analysis to detect deficiencies in the basic profile for Accounts and Contacts.• Deficiencies are uploaded into Siebel to ISRs as activities that require action.• Analysis includes installed platform deficiencies in accounts.• The progress in Data Quality will be measured by the corrections done in Siebel, not by the amount of executed activities.Process – How to do it• Every time a call is executed with customers, Data Quality speech should be incorporated .• When preparing the call, look for a Data Quality activity to understand the deficiencies that the account has.• In a call it is not possible to cover all criteria of the Data Quality activity; however, it is important to cover at least two (better if more) to maintain a good standard of quality in Siebel.• Once the call is executed, deficiencies should be corrected with the call outcome. Remarks Maintaining good standards in Siebel means we know our customers better, and therefore more accurate initiatives can be run. 23

  25. 25. Data TargetingConcept• Microsoft can identify customer future value from customer transactional purchasing behavior and industry benchmarks.• This analysis helps identify each account’s future potential revenue to Microsoft.• There are quite a few models that address different concepts: • Cross Sell • Next Logical Product • Early Adopters • Anti-piracy • Etc.• These models are available to the call center through activities.• Data targeting helps improve daily business operations in marketing and sales.Process – How to do it• Data Targeting is executed through 3 Tier contact model – MMRP first (Relevant information about products already purchased).• When preparing call be ready to discuss any Campaign Scenario and Product listed in the Target set Activities.• Data Sets give guidance - Preplanning , which profiling option to begin conversation with.• Engage customer in an investigative discussion – listen for critical issues, validate and explore for alternatives.• For Managed Accounts – Depth and Breadth Tier1 and Tier 2: • Use Three Tier contact model • MMRP or Routing Activity - due date triggers customer contact (Primary reason to contact) • Data Target sets linked to Customer Campaign messages - Target activities due date set to the end of the fiscal year • Execute at same time• For Un-Managed Accounts – Breadth Tier3 and Tier 4: • Use Target set list • Call Center and Breadth Lead determine customer contact schedule. Start with highest revenue generating products. • Each ISR is assigned a customer list of Data Target set Customer Campaign activities for the week.• Some customers could already have bought the offering product. This happens because the customer buys before Microsoft finishes uploading the predicting activities.Taxonomy Taxonomy (activity description) ActivityType ActivityCategory ActivityPurpose Due Date Status FY08-MKTG-TARG-RQA-Campaign Name, Product, Prob/PX, Source Call – Outbound Common Activities Campaign End of Fiscal Year Not Started 25
  26. 26. Data Targeting What it looks like An account could have more than one Data Target Activity. The customer may be interested in more than one depending on how the conversation goes.

If necessary change the due date according to the follow up date. •Not Applicable: If customers clearly indicate that they are not and will not be interested in the product in the future. •Done: If the customer is interested and an opportunity is created (Use Create Oppty from Activity button). Only select “Done” without opening an Opportunity if multi product Opportunity is being opened from another Target Activity. Additional info shows purchase probability percentage. Due date is uploaded at the end of the fiscal year (or Q), so Data Target Activities are active during the whole year. 26
  27. 27. 3 Tier Contact Model - Integrated ExecutionConcept• An integrated execution should guarantee that when customers are called, they are contacted with unique speech that gathers information from all pending activities (MMRP, Data Quality, MQPs, etc.).• The integrated execution avoids contacting customers several times for different reasons.• The 3 Tier Contact Model has three main areas to focus on: 1. MMRP: Provides a reason to contact and builds relationships with customers. A reason to contact helps start the conversation. Afterwards it is possible to expand and complement the conversation to talk about different topics. 2. Data Mining Analysis: Provides a set of mathematical analysis that helps identify each account’s future potential revenue to Microsoft. 3. Data Validation: Use every opportunity to obtain additional data and to validate the date that we already have.Process – How to do it Remarks • Validate Opportunities • MMRP Activities that require action (RQA) Information Activities (FYI) 1– • Routing Call (if there is MMRP as well, then cancel routing) Immediate • MQPs Action • MMRP • SA Software benefit • Routing Calls activation • MQPs • Event Attendance • Data Quality • Targets (when available) • Targets • Marketing initiatives 2 – Always talk about • Data Quality • Etc. • Event attendance These are • Marketing Initiatives informative 3– activities that Additional • SA Benefit Activation Call (LATAM) support calls information 27

Platform was validated  Data Quality3. 2 out of 3 Targets were validated 28
  29. 29. MQPs, PQPs and SQPsConcept• A very active way of generating pipeline in Microsoft is done through events.• The generation of revenue is an expected outcome from the execution of a complete events plan.• The planning and execution of events have different stages that involve various areas in Microsoft (see the chart below for reference): 1. Planning: Marketing segments create different types of events to fit customers’ needs. These events can be targeted initiatives, product launch, massive events and even marketing though Partners. 2. Execution and Leads generation: Once marketing is clear on the initiative concept, the execution is done through various channels: Physical Events, Calls, Meetings, Demo Centers, etc. The result of the execution can generate prospects (leads) which are commonly called MQPs (Marketing Qualified Prospects), PQPs(Partner Qualified Prospects) and SQPs (Sales Qualified Prospects) depending on who generated the lead. To detect sales prospects, the Lead Qualification model (BANT) is used. This model is based on four basic questions: B: Budget (Do you have a budget associated with this project?) A: Authority (Are you the business or technical decision maker for this project?) N: Need (Are you looking to implement a project planned in any of the following areas?) T: Time (What is your organizations timeframe to purchase the chosen solution?) MQPs, PQPs, and SQPs are contacts who positively answered at least 3 BANT questions and Need is present. Once prospects/leads are detected, they are uploaded into Siebel as activities so that the call center can follow them up. 3. Activity follow-up and Pipeline execution: All prospect activities uploaded in Siebel have to be validated with high priority, as customers expect their needs to be fulfilled. If customers’ needs are real, these activities generate opportunities. 4. Revenue generation: The final expected outcome of the process is Revenue generation and customer satisfaction. Planning Revenue 29
  30. 30. MQPs, PQPs and SQPsProcess – How to do it• MQPs, PQPs and SQPS activities have specific due dates that must be respected since customers are waiting for Microsoft to contact them.• Customers can be contacted before (but not after) the activity due date.• As part of an integrated execution, these activities should appear when querying all pending activities (status = Not Started).• Comments and Additional Info fields help understand the event objective. Data like date, country, event name, IDs are specified.• If an opportunity is identified , the Create Oppty from Activity button must be used to associate the activity with the opportunity. This is necessary to measure the ROI (Return of Investment) of Marketing Campaigns.• Close the activity by setting the Status field to Done.Taxonomy Type Taxonomy (activity description) ActivityType ActivityCategory ActivityPurpose Due Date Status FY09-MKTG-CALL-RQA-Event Date/Country/Event Type/Event Marketing Qualified 7 days after Not MQPs Name/WWE_ID MQP Lead Prospect tabulation Started Partner Qualified 7 days after Not PQPs FY09-MKTP-CALL-RQA-Validate Oppty Partner Event MQP Lead Prospect tabulation Started What it looks like Taxonomy helps understand source and event type. Keep in mind that events organized by Partners (Through Partner Marketing) can generate leads as well. These leads are uploaded to Siebel with different taxonomy. Not all created MQPs/PQPs generate an opportunity. However, if one is identified, the Create Oppty from Activity button must be used. Activities are uploaded as soon as leads are detected. Remember that customers are waiting for Microsoft to contact them. Therefore, the sooner the activity is executed, the faster customer expectations are fulfilled. 30
  31. 31. Routing CallsConcept• Microsoft has a Customer Contact Management Strategy that guarantees coverage throughout Accounts in all segments during the whole year.• This strategy sets the number of times that customers have to be contacted in the year.• The main objective of Contact Management is not to leave customers unattended.• This strategy is different depending on the subsidiary and on the account segment. For example: for Depth accounts Microsoft could be interested in contact customers once every two months, but for Breadth accounts once every four only.• Contact Management is executed through some instruments: MMRP, Event Activities, Data Sets, Opportunities etc.• In a certain period of time, an account might not have any activity or opportunity, and therefore we cannot contact the customer.• If the account is not touched, contact strategy is broken and engagement is affected.• Routing Calls are created to cover untouched accounts  Microsoft can identify when customers are not to be touched and then create a routing call to cover the accounts.• Routing Calls force a contact with customers.Process – How to do it• Routing Calls have to be executed as part of the 3 Tier Contact Model.  Every time a routing call is found, a speech has to be prepared by looking at the interactions between Microsoft and the customer.• Usually routing calls are not accompanied by pending activities, that means that even though calling the customer is necessary, routing calls do not provide a reason to call. That is why looking at the customer history is important to create a logical speech (cross and up sell could help create the reason to contact).• There can be some exceptions to the previous point when new MMRP, MQPs or initiatives are created.• If the routing call is found with other activities that require action, create the speech bearing in mind these activities and set the routing call to Done in the status field.Taxonomy FY09-RUTA-CALL-RQA-Short description ActivityType ActivityCategory ActivityPurpose Due Date Status FY09-RUTA-CALL-RQA-Short description Call – Outbound Common Activities Follow Up Depends on the strategy Not Started 31
