Enhancing Customer Service with Dynamics 365 and Power Pages
Exactive, a top-tier solution provider, acknowledged the changing nature of customer service in the digital age. Customers now expect easier service access, reliable information, and fast issue resolution, and meeting these expectations was a big challenge for Exactive. The company aimed to simplify access to its services, provide consistent and accurate information to its customers, and significantly increase the number of service requests resolved on the first contact. This case study reveals how DeFacto, in partnership with Exactive, leveraged the prowess of Microsoft's Dynamics 365 Customer Service and Power Pages to empower this transformative journey.
In an era characterized by instant access to information and a plethora of communication channels, customers have come to expect a level of service that transcends the traditional. For Exactive, the challenge was not just about meeting these expectations; it was about staying ahead of the curve. The demands for simplified service access, consistent and accurate information, and the ability to resolve issues on the first contact had become the new norm.
Exactive's commitment to customer excellence drove them to tackle these challenges head-on. The mission was clear - to revamp their customer service operations, reduce operational costs, and elevate customer retention rates.

In synergy with DeFacto, Exactive embarked on a journey of transformation. We harnessed the capabilities of Microsoft's Dynamics 365 Customer Service and harnessed the adaptability of Power Pages to confront these pressing challenges.
