Leading Analyst Case Study: Montgomery County Deploys ERP and CRM Simultaneously

Gartner, Case Study: Montgomery County Deploys ERP and CRM Simultaneously

Montgomery County, Maryland, deployed ERP and CRM applications at the same time. This analysis provides lessons for other local governments to improve project staff allocation, vendor management, and project performance management under strict budget and timeline constraints.   


The Montgomery County CIO considers the implementation of Oracle EBS and Siebel, on time and on budget, a "great success."

  • ·         Managed service requests in a consolidated manner. MC311 handles more than 40,000 service requests each month on behalf of 37 county departments and offices. In April 2011, more than 1,300 service requests originated from the Web portal. Montgomery County hopes to drive more requests to the portal, as this is the lowest-cost interaction channel.
  • ·         Reduced duplication of citizen service centers across the county. The intake desk at the Department of Housing and Community Affairs was eliminated, enabling a staff member to take over the responsibility for creating cases.
  • ·         Eliminated legacy systems. Multiple legacy systems were shut down, including the Department of Transport (DOT), the transit information request database and Department of Environmental Protection solid waste collection request database.
  • ·         Created a more scalable and reliable service center, including in times of crisis. Twenty-four-hour nonemergency call support to residents was made possible, including during winter blizzards.
  • ·         Improved access to performance management information. CountyStat uses Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) dashboards to drive process improvement in departments. Prior to the implementation of MC311, there was no system for tracking customer requests and their status.

IMSERSO Uses Integrated CRM System to Streamline Case Management of Elderly and Disabled Citizens

The Institute for Social Services for Elderly and Dependent (IMSERSO) is a public agency within the Spanish Ministry of Health, Social Policy, and Equality.

  • Introduce a reliable solution to quickly apply the “Law for Dependent People” in the 17 autonomous regions
  • Implement a case management solution to support execution of the law, such as evaluating dependent statuses, confirming rights to receive benefits, and calculating grants
  • Provide a multi-channel platform for providing information to the public—in person, via the internet, or via the call center

“With our claims management system, built on Oracle’s Siebel applications, we can ensure that we consistently apply the criteria for The Law for Dependent People across more than 1.5 million applicants and 700,000 beneficiaries.” – Javier Ballesteros, Director of Information Technology, Institute for Social Services for Elderly and Dependent (IMSERSO).  Learn more about the benefits.
