Introduction

Started in 2000, Indigo Paints has come a long way in becoming one of the most prominent manufacturer of paints in the Indian subcontinent. The company has grown its footprint all across the globe, and is one of the major drivers for innovation in the paint industry, and has a field team to match that level of growth. Let’s take a look at how Indigo Paints supercharges its field teams using Fieldproxy.

About The Company

Indigo Paints is a leading Indian paint company that offers a wide range of decorative and industrial coatings. The company was founded in the year 2000 and has since grown to become one of the fastest-growing paint companies in India.

Obstacles In Indigo Paints’ Growth Plans

Indigo Paints has a massive outside sales operation. They have agents across the Indian subcontinent and wanted a solution that could help their managers simplify how all sales visits were being monitored.

Manual Agent Performance Measurement

Despite having a huge number of field team professionals under their belt, Indigo Paints had a manual approach to how they operate them. This meant that things could be improved in certain aspects along the organization that would help boost sales further.

Slower Communication During Visits

With large teams you also get a fairly more complex organizational chain, and any change or communication takes a long time to reach everyone when you’re doing things manually. This rings true especially when your agents are out on the field. Something needed to change, because faster communication through the chain equals faster execution of ideas and better data-backed results.

A Process To Also Help Log Travel Expenses

Field agents also travel a lot, and any expenses and claims need to be managed effectively. Indigo needed support on this aspect as well, and Fieldproxy was more than happy to deliver.

This is thanks to Fieldproxy’s underlying no-code framework, which helps organizations customize the solutions to their liking, saving hundreds of hours a year going back and forth with tech teams for every request.

Couple this with the intuitive dashboards and reports that managers can make sense of in real-time, and you have a winning solution for your field teams.
