Das im Gartner Magic Quadrant for Field Service Management 2012 als einer der Marktführer bezeichnete Unternehmen TOA Technologies bietet seine einzigartig intelligente und hoch entwickelte Technologie als neues Mitglied des KVD auch in der DACH-Region an. Darüber hinaus präsentierte TOA seine Außendienst-Managementlösungen auf der vom 8.-9. November in München im Rahmen des Service Congress 2012 stattgefundenen  Service World 2012.

TOAs Zielsetzung, globale Unternehmen dabei zu unterstützen, ihre Kunden zu Markenbotschaftern zu machen, passt zum Ziel des KVD, „Best Practices" im Kundendienst-Management durch Veranstaltungen wie die Service World 2012 in der DACH-Region zu etablieren. Unternehmen weltweit können in hohem Maße davon profitieren, während des gesamten Serviceprozesses mit den Kunden in Kontakt zu stehen.

Außendienst-Mitarbeiter fungieren als das menschliche Gesicht eines Unternehmens. Da sie den Kunden persönlich treffen, sind sie der Dreh- und Angelpunkt bei der Interaktion zwischen Unternehmen und Kunden. Wenn Kunden das Gefühl haben, dass Unternehmen verantwortungsvoll mit ihrer Zeit umgehen, sie wertschätzen und im Außendienst effektiv kommunizieren, führt dies zu zufriedenen und treuen Kunden.

TOA Technologies tritt dem KVD als Teil der globalen Gemeinschaft bei, um bessere Geschäfte durch mehr Transparenz und kollaborativen Kundendienst zu fördern. Der KVD ist der größte und wichtigste Berufsverband in Europa und unterstützt mehr als 1.600 branchenführende Unternehmen im Bereich Kundendienst in Deutschland. Die vom KVD organisierte Service World 2012 ist eine der wichtigsten Kundendienst-Messen in Deutschland, auf der die größten Dienstleister der DACH-Region vertreten sind. Das diesjährige Thema war „Die Service-Strategien im Jahr 2020" mit einem Schwerpunkt darauf, wie die Cloud, neue soziale Medien, mobile Geräte, GPS und andere Technologien die Servicelandschaft verändern.

Als Mitglied des KVD wird TOA Technologies sich damit befassen, wie die Konvergenz aus mobiler, sozialer, Cloud und kontextbezogene Verarbeitung die Zukunft des Außendiensts verändern wird. Als Aussteller auf der Service World 2012 hat das Unternehmen verdeutlicht, wie Organisationen von diesen technologischen Fortschritten profitieren können, indem sie das Außendienst-Management als Instrument nutzen, ihre Kundenbeziehungen zu stärken.
