SYDNEY, Australia – October 4, 2023SugarCRM today announced Waterco Limited, a global water treatment and pool equipment manufacturer based in Sydney, has selected Sugar Sell Advanced to power intelligent sales automation with AI-driven workflows and predictive analytics, to fuel revenue growth and drive exceptional customer experience.

Waterco pioneers reliable solutions for healthy, safe water environments, which are used in residential, commercial, and industrial applications in more than 40 countries. Established in 1981 with a single pool pump store in Sydney, it has since become a global brand recognised for designing and manufacturing filtration and sanitisation innovations for the swimming pool, spa, aquaculture, and water purification sectors.

With Sugar Sell Advanced as its manufacturing CRM solution, Waterco will benefit from advanced reporting, predictable forecasting, sales data analytics, holistic insights, and omnichannel internal communications for cross-departmental alignment and centralised data access.

“Sugar Sell will significantly improve visibility and predictability for enhanced sales performance, automating our sales process for improved efficiencies,” says Marco Contreras, ANZ IT Manager, Waterco. “Bringing together Sugar Sell and Epicor Kinetic onto a single platform will allow us to conduct analysis on purchasing patterns to better understand our customers and further personalise their buying experiences.”

The Sugar deployment includes powerful integrations between Epicor Kinetic and Sugar Sell powered by Biscit. By mapping data seamlessly between its customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) platforms, Waterco will have a 360-degree view of its business to unlock newfound revenue opportunities.

Waterco also will benefit from predictive business-to-business sales intelligence from sales-i that surfaces data-driven sales insights and opportunity alerts based on customer buying behaviour. sales-i will enable Waterco to capture product, price, quantity, and frequency intelligence from its Epicor Kinetic solution, automatically add it to Sugar Sell, and then provide specific insights on key buying trends.
