After introducing Sansan, the company achieved over 70% of its employees becoming active users, and in January 2023, it launched a “Sales Enablement Department” to drive sales transformation using Sansan. In January 2024, we introduced Salesforce and linked data from 120,000 companies and 631,000 people on Sansan. We have redefined the sales phase from the customer’s decision-making process and are sharing the “type” of effective sales activities throughout the company. In addition, a “corporate relationship score” is calculated based on the amount of contact points. Since we have confirmed that there is a correlation between the depth of relationships with executives and sales, we are promoting “meaningful top sales,” which involves efficient sales activities, using the score as an indicator. In addition, we created a “heat map” that visualizes the depth of contact by position and department, and a “power map” that shows the relationships between key people, including those surrounding those with authority to make decisions, and utilized them in sales strategies. We praised Sansan for its multifaceted use of Sansan to promote data-driven sales management transformation involving the entire company.

・THAI TAKENAKA INTERNATIONAL LTD.Company Representative: Hiroshi Kajikawa, Group Leader, General Affairs and Human Resources Group, Administration Department, International Branch, Takenaka Corporation Reason for Award: THAI TAKENAKA INTERNATIONAL LTD. is a group company of Takenaka Corporation, a general construction company, and is based in Bangkok. We are conducting construction work at our base. In Thailand, the culture of paper and handwritten signatures is more deeply rooted than in Japan or Singapore, and most business documents are exchanged on paper. The company received over 2,000 invoices a month in various formats, creating an environment that was prone to errors and was difficult to manage. After implementing Bill One to improve this situation, the company was able to reduce its man-hours by 400 hours per month, leading to an acceleration of monthly closing. In the Thai market, where digital invoice receipt is not as common as in Japan, we held a total of 14 on-site training sessions over 7 business days to seek cooperation from vendors. We commended the company for promoting the benefits of using Bill One and increasing support for sending bills directly.

As a result, the collaboration between the sales and marketing departments has been strengthened, making it possible to take a comprehensive approach, cultivating customers that could not be reached through sales alone, and increasing sales by billions of yen. The company was recognized for its use of digital technology to transform work styles and achieve significant sales results.
