Our utilization of an outdated system to oversee Repairs and Warranties had reached a point where a rejuvenation was in order. Despite its operational status, the solutions were on a platform Microsoft had marked for discontinuation. Recognizing the practicality of this situation, we concluded that transitioning to a modern system was the logical step forward.
At that point, we connected with Reclaimit, which specialises in providing complex retail solutions encompassing stores, suppliers, e-commerce, and service facilities. Their thoroughly tested, comprehensive solution incorporates a significant infusion of automation, ensuring complete traceability for all parties involved. Over our 2.5 years of collaboration with Reclaimit, our level of satisfaction with their Repair solution is exceptionally high.

The feedback we've gathered from our stores highlights numerous advantages. For instance, the process of registering repairs for customers has become remarkably streamlined. In the past, we grappled with extensive drop-down menus featuring many options, which inherently raised the potential for manual slip-ups.

We are excited to share that we also just implemented Reclaimit Return for our E-commerce division. This decision was due to the existence of our complex return system, which could not be replaced entirely due to its integration complexity. This complexity arises from our unique blend of e-commerce, brick-and-mortar, and in-store sales. There needs to be a market solution capable of handling this hybrid model, leading us to rely on customized workarounds to manage the process.
Considering this challenge, our company group initiated a comprehensive review of our handling procedures, focusing on streamlining E-commerce returns. During this evaluation, the immense value of integrating Reclaimit became evident, particularly in enhancing self-service options. Our overarching objective is to empower all customers to initiate online returns quickly. While the current norm favors in-store returns, we aim to revolutionize this by offering equally convenient online return processes.
Our existing return workflow involves substantial manual involvement from both customers and Salling Group. Extracting customer data and maintaining accurate tracking has proven to be quite demanding. Consequently, we embarked on a collaborative project with Reclaimit to revamp our E-commerce return management.
By implementing Reclaimit Return, we aim to automate our return procedures and consolidate all pertinent customer details, order specifics, and product information into a centralised database. This strategic move will notably simplify the workload for our dedicated return department, allowing them to expedite return processing.
The outcome will undoubtedly translate into an enhanced post-sales customer experience, as quicker return processing equates to speedier refund issuance.
The most remarkable benefit we anticipate from adopting Reclaimit Return is the substantial time savings it promises in return management. By harnessing automated workflows and precise data handling, we want to streamline our operations significantly.
A noteworthy transformation will unfold within our Customer Service domain – they will no longer need to navigate multiple systems. Instead, they'll effortlessly operate within a unified ecosystem that seamlessly mirrors data through integrations with other systems.
This strategic shift empowers us with enhanced control over all subsequent actions, enabling us to operate more harmoniously and cohesively.
