As a John Deere Preferred Supplier, Data Access Europe developed the Halifax warranty portal for mid-sized machine manufacturers with widespread sales, dealers, and service networks.
Halifax is a powerful solution to enhance your customer experience. Provide better service by making your warranty process more professional, transparent and strive for instant gratification. Relevant criteria are when a customer asks for help, that the process is smooth, efficient, and easy as can be; automatically leading to customer satisfaction.
Halifax is a web portal application accessible to all stakeholders that are part of your warranty workflow.
The system covers multiple user roles:
1. Dealer (creating claims)
2. Back Office (handling claims)
3. Goods Receipt (handling the logistics process)
4. Approver (reviewing claims that exceed the back-office limit)
5. Administrator (setting up the system)
Halifax enforces the application of best practice workflow. The system shortens your process cycles so that you can spend your time and resources more efficiently.
Several mechanisms increase productivity. The seamless integration with your ERP system helps to enter claims much quicker because all the necessary details to complete a claim are readily available. It saves time for your customer.
The automatic exchange of data results in less administrative time and errors because of the reuse of existing information.
Furthermore, the system logs all involved steps in the process, accurately monitoring the costs versus rewarding claims. It creates a fair balance between claims that should not be rewarded at all and those that should be compensated. This improves your accountability and reduces costs.
Halifax helps to implement and maintain a consistent flow, and it supports all stakeholders to keep track of things. No claim can escape attention because all involved parties are kept up to date via this central facility. Email notifications, reminders and smart widgets do the trick.

AVR started to use the Halifax platform about a year ago. They abandoned the initial plan to implement the service cloud modules from their SAP system. Even though an integrated SAP solution should offer benefits, the Return On Investment proved to be challenging for AVR. The shorter ROI, combined with the simple and more suitable workflow that Halifax offers, made AVRs decision to go for Halifax.
