Capgemini enables the European cybersecurity leader to remain "one step ahead" in providing world-class service


Keeping the world of information technology safe and secure

Coresec was established in 2003 and is a market leader delivering cyber security and networking solutions. Coresec is currently represented in Sweden, Norway, Netherlands and Denmark, with offices in Malmö (HQ), Stockholm, Gothenburg, Oslo, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Aarhus. With more than 250 employees, 24×7 manned Network & Security Operations Centers, and an estimated turnover of €60M in 2015.

In the words of Johan Andersson, CEO of Coresec, “Our ambition is to build Coresec into a clear market leader in Europe, to massively increase the size of the company and to be present in key European countries in the coming years. We firmly believe that further specialization, international scope, and taking an active part in the ongoing consolidation of the sector in Europe will be good for our customers, our partners and our employees."


Maintaining a strong foothold

Due to its ambitious expansion, Coresec found itself burdened with a number of legacy and self-developed IT systems. Also, expansion in size, location and services had created disparity between existing systems and processes. While Coresec’s sales process was set up on Salesforce, its service process worked through a legacy system. The lack of synchronisation between the sales and service processes added another layer of challenge for Coresec because a significant amount of its data was spread across multiple systems and worksheets.

Understanding the risks associated with outdated systems, Coresec recognized that to continue improving its processes and to remain a leader in the industry, it had to replace its legacy and homegrown solutions and consolidate any remaining platforms and data.

Coresec sought a provider who could migrate all its inventory information and contracts to a Salesforce-based solution and help improve its customer service process. It expected the provider to dispense world-class insight on Coresec’s processes and customer data. Finding a partner who could advise and help provide holistic execution for all customer service and sales processes was the deciding factor.


Coresec’s transformation journey

Coresec saw Capgemini as a partner who was able to listen and gauge what was critical to its business. Furthermore, Capgemini had the knowledge and experience to help Coresec on this transformation journey around CRM and Customer Service. Coresec approved of Salesforce’s best of breed technology and proven ability to work in collaboration with Capgemini’s domain knowledge, SFDC skills, and structured approach to transformation project delivery.

The Capgemini team implemented Service Cloud as the turnkey replacement solution for Coresec’s Service Desk and related processes. The set-up of the project and the mode of engagement with Coresec were highly agile and flexible.
