Challenge:

Each year ELAN recieves tens of thousands of:

  • Sales Leads
  • Product literature request
  • Local dealer inquiries
  • New Dealer inquiries
  • Comments
  • Questions
  • Complaints

Inquiries needed to be securely pulled to databases in ELAN offices so that staff could:

  • Follow up
  • Report activity
  • Track progress
  • Make management decisions

Solution:

  • ELAN’s technical staff used FormRouter’s Simple Form Builder to rapidly model a fully functional form
  • E-mail alerts were built with FormRouter’s easy to use online Alert Builder
  • Event managers reviewed the form and alert to make sure that it met each departments needs
  • Once form fields were reviewed, ELAN’s technical staff pulled the form code (HTML) from FormRouter into their own Web tools to enhance graphically
  • Next, beautified forms were uploaded to ELAN’s FormRouter account for secure hosting
  • Links from the ELAN Web site directed inquiries to the form
  • Form responses were securely captured to a Microsoft SQL Server database in the ELAN offices using the FormRouter Client Tool. Note: any database could have been used (example: MS Access)
  • Staff in different departments used the database to take timely action on all requests

Benefits:

ELAN’s use of FormRouter technology within their organization resulted in efficiencies including:

  • FormRouter enabled ELAN’s Web development staff to use the tools they already knew to rapidly create beautiful custom forms
  • FormRouter’s secure data routing capability gave ELAN the ability to capture sensitive information within the forms that would not have been suitable for email transfer
  • Email alerts, set up on the FormRouter Server, were used to notify specific event managers when critical data was submitted
  • The FormRouter Server automatically routed responses to a database in the ELAN offices

Special Note: With exception of graphically enhancing the look of the online forms, a managers without programming could have done all of this themselves. In addition, if a form required online payment, that also could have been enabled instantly with FormRouter.

Summary:

ELAN Home Systems experienced both cost and time savings managing their inquiries. By using FormRouter technology, ELAN set up a response system in record time, maintained total control over the look of their forms, and routed data directly to staff databases. As a result, customers and dealers enjoyed a smooth communication process.
