New Consumers and the True Value of Knowledge in Manufacturing
Challenging sales potential
According to McKinsey, leading up to 2030 will bring a lot of change. They suggest a real sales potential for you (and every other manufacturer), but that it comes with uncertainties that competing in new markets and selling to new customer profiles brings.
These opportunities come up in an extremely challenging and changing environment. Resource prices are volatile and rising energy costs, along with energy and environmental factors, play against new developments in materials and processes, like nanotechnology, advanced robotics and 3D printing. Turn these challenges into opportunities takes an incredible amount of understanding – and of course the technology used will need to be ready for rapid adaption to help you exploit these opportunities while maximizing business as usual.
Getting ahead of the curve
The newest era of manufacturing is marked by highly agile, networked businesses that use information and analytics as skillfully as they employ talent and machinery to deliver products and services to many markets. This can’t be achieved with outdated technology – disparate applications or clunky connectors. Solid, industry-relevant ERP that seamlessly connects with agile CRM has become a non-negotiable. This will give you the ability to manage, protect and influence income and profitability by combining actual income and spending with powerful pipeline analysis. Couple that with instant connectivity to daily productivity tools like Microsoft Outlook, and this is where Microsoft Dynamics comes into its own.
