Transforming Customer Service through Self-Service Capabilities with Microsoft Power Pages/Portals

About the Client

The client is a non-profit organization headquartered in the USA, focused on preserving and disseminating spiritual teachings worldwide. They operate Ashrams and meditation centres globally, engaging with seekers through various technological platforms. The client leverages technology to inform about spiritual practices, the organization's events, and volunteer opportunities.

Executive Summary

Faced with the challenge of managing escalating licensing costs and the need for more effective customer engagement, Ray Business Technologies developed a tailored solution that not only reduced costs but also empowered users through self-service options. This solution leveraged Microsoft Power Pages to create a secure, user-friendly portal integrated with Dynamics 365, significantly enhancing user experience and operational efficiency.

Challenges Faced

The client required a solution to handle the following issues:

  • High Licensing Costs: Growing customer and community inquiries led to escalating costs associated with additional licensing fees.
  • Limited Self-Service: Customers and community administrators lacked the autonomy to access information or perform tasks without direct interaction with customer support.
  • Operational Inefficiencies: The existing system required manual handling of requests and inquiries, leading to delays and increased workload.

Our Solutions

RBT proposed a comprehensive approach to address these challenges through several strategic steps:

  • Design and Customization: Developed a portal interface tailored to the client’s branding needs, including custom layouts, menus, and forms to ensure a seamless user experience.
  • Integration with Dynamics 365: Ensured real-time synchronization with the client’s Dynamics 365 system for continuously updated contact information, community details, and documentation.
  • Functionality Development and Security Implementation
a) Introduced new functionalities like real-time record updates, an extensive knowledge base, and event tracking.
b) Implemented robust security measures using Azure Active Directory to manage data security and ensure role-based access, safeguarding user data and enhancing trust.
