The entering of new requirements is modular – besides automatically creating the requirements from the email queue, direct entering of requirements by the customer is also supported or its manual entering by the customer care department operator on the basis of phone communication. When saving the text into the outgoing electronic communication with customer, they are reflected in the particular specific language to a single regional dealerships W.A.G. payment solution according to the customer's nationality.
