CGS-CIMB had no efficient, scalable way of managing requests that came through their customer-facing retail portal. Without a long-term solution, CGS-CIMB was encountering these problems:
  1. Slow manual business processes. Retail processes had to be executed manually, introducing costly delays before completion.
  2. Lack of integration. Legacy and third-party integrations were disconnected, resulting in a complicated content delivery process.
  3. No real-time customer data. Because many different systems stored different kinds of data, no single system contained up-to-date customer information.
With the help of Liferay DXP, we were able to transform our manual processes [into] digital processes.

CGS-CIMB chose Liferay DXP as their solution because of Liferay’s full-fledged content management suite and integration capabilities, building an enterprise workflow engine that would automate critical sales processes behind the scenes of the customer retail portal.

Educational resources on Liferay University helped CGS-CIMB’s team ramp up on necessary Liferay knowledge quickly, and the Liferay Global Services team assisted with development to shorten the launch time.


The new workflow solution uses CGS-CIMB’s branding for a smooth and seamless user experience as internal staff review and approve requests from the retail portal. Implementing the automated enterprise workflow engine has reaped the following benefits:
  1. Fewer wasted resources. The solution expands CGS-CIMB’s digital footprint in shifting retail processes online, saving time and effort.
  2.  Flexible updates. Not only are the retail processes automated, Liferay makes updates easy, allowing CGS-CIMB to modify those processes whenever necessary.
  3. Scaling for the future. With access to real-time customer information coming from automation, CGS-CIMB can scale up for the future as their customer base grows.
