Customer Relationship
About the Client
HP Inc (webOS GBU) is a provider of mobile products for individual users and business customers worldwide.
The company’s products for consumers, mobile professionals and businesses include Palm® Treo™ and Centro™

Business Challenge
TCS’ Solution
Despite the widespread economic downturn, the
global smartphone industry has witnessed high
growth due to a host of factors, including lower
product cost, the expansion of global mobile email
and browsing services, the emergence of 3G and 4G
network technologies and the standardization and
upgrades of operating systems. Riding on the tail of
this industry, the retail market for mobile Internet
applications is expanding greatly through the
combined efforts of software providers, device
vendors and mobile operators. There has been a
rapid proliferation of mobile applications stores,
many of which revolve around a specific smartphone
device, operating system community or service
TCS provided a secure, cost-effective, easily
maintainable and realisable technology platform and
CRM system for Palm.
HP Inc (webOS GBU) recognized that the key to
stability in today's dynamic smartphone marketplace
was forging long-term relationships with both its
developers and its customers. It therefore wished to
install a CRM system to assist both the Developer
Relationship Management (DRM) and the HP Inc
(webOS GBU) Sales Team. For DRM, it wanted to
provide an application to help plan, track and
manage campaigns aimed at improving developer
relationships, and to track applications developed by
the different developer accounts at their different
stages of progress. With regard to Sales, the company
wanted to track its various accounts and contacts and
the related opportunities in the pipeline, to assist the
sales force in increasing sales conversion.
HP Inc (webOS GBU) wanted to reduce the upfront
investment in a CRM system by opting for a pay-peruse (subscription) model, which would reduce the
overheads involved in installing, maintaining and
upgrading hardware and software. It decided to use
the (salesforce) CRM to track its campaigns aimed at
the developer community. With regard to HP Inc
(webOS GBU) Sales, the same system could also track
sales accounts, contacts and opportunities as well as
the activities directed towards sales conversions.
Given TCS’ vast experience in installing CRM systems
and its strategic partnership with salesforce.com, TCS
was Palm’s natural partner of choice for this
