INSPARK was able to comprehend the business model we had in mind, our current state, and where we wanted to get to

Tracking and analysis is crucial to Mobilike. It was essential for us to plan ahead through business results analysis by seeing what we were doing.
Mobilike, Turkey’s leading company in the mobile advertising industry, was founded by Volkan Biçer and Şekip Can Gökalp in 2009. With Turkey’s most expansive mobile advertising network, Mobilike manages a publishing network that accounts for more than 4 billion features a month on smartphones and tablets. It reaches 65 percent of mobile internet users in Turkey through diverse and innovative mobile advertising products.
Mobilike was the first company to air rich media and video advertisements on smartphones and tablets in Turkey. With the premium channels, diverse advertising models, and advance technologies it offers, Mobilike can be described as an advertising sales house.

For us, crucial parameters included handling business on a cloud-based platform, identifying KPIs, and keeping all data on the cloud. We decided to move a considerably large infrastructure to salesforce.com.
Though our area of business is a new one and it’s hard to explain it, it was a great advantage to have an understanding between us and INSPARK. We actively continue to use the automation processes that are implemented during the project without skipping any of them.
From initiating the first meeting with customers to closing sales and after-sales activities, we had to start keeping all our data on Salesforce. I actually don’t think this was an easy task. We started off the project in a complex way, but we were really relieved since both parties understood each other and the consultants had a good sense of our needs.
Thanks to Salesforce CRM, we track our business processes on a single platform and instantly access any data we wish. It used to be humanly impossible to analyze so much data stored on so many different products. We have solved this problem and began to generate analysis reports.
In Turkey, companies may put up resistance to technology investments by saying, “My business is going well. So why would I need this?” You must see CRM as reinforcing your home’s foundation and structure.
We continue to receive post-project maintenance and consultancy services from INSPARK. We discuss and assess any major changes together. The platform’s flexible formation answers our changing needs.
