SAPPHIRENOW @ Orlando | A complete business experience dedicated to keeping your discrete manufacturing industry competitive
Posted by Ganesh Hegde May 05, 2013
These are exciting and challenging times for Discrete Manufacturers in the High Tech, Automotive, Industrial Machinery & Component (IM&C) and Aerospace industries. Strategic, operational and finance side of organizations that make products like automobiles, computers, and electronic components must work together as never before to achieve new levels of company valuation, customer satisfaction, growth, innovation, profitability, and reduced costs. Customers are savvy, fickle, and demanding. How do discrete manufacturing companies build profitable, enduring relationships with them? By continuously innovating ways to align business operations with customer needs and desires. IM&C manufacturers, for example, need to develop new revenue streams by providing new turn-key solutions that deliver greater value to their customers. The ability to innovate is more important than ever. To respond rapidly to evolving trends in today’s connected marketplace, companies need powerful analytics to identify new customer patterns and adapt their products to new opportunities. With ever-shorter product lifecycles, leading the competition calls for creating new products and services that excite customers and can be rolled out globally quickly and effectively. Business processes must be agile. Meanwhile, supply chains need to adjust quickly, yet still remain efficient and cost effective. Find out how SAP solutions help discrete manufacturing industries to “Run Better” by overcoming these challenges and listen to how leading companies take advantage of SAP technology and software to power their growth through innovation.
