AST Corporation

Situation

Due to a recent merger, Lattice Semiconductor Corporation required centralization of an enterprise-wide system to capture, understand, and streamline overall business processes. Its legacy system relied on independent sources for account and opportunity management, and quote management. Users in both departments found it difficult to merge their separate processes into a single, comprehensive business process. The company required a partner and solution to:

  • Design an end-to-end system to facilitate accurate and cohesive data capture and link work streams;
  • Trace and track opportunity-to-revenue;
  • Determine consolidated system requirements across Sales Operations, Marketing, Finance, and partner organizations;
  • Manage user acceptance of new business and system processes;
  • Tailor out-of-the box processes for complex industry-specific requirements; and
  • Implement a global system.

AST has proven to be a true partner in our sales transformational project. [The] AST team showed remarkable understanding of the semiconductor industry and brought best practices, which helped us deliver a state-of-the-art system.”
