As the digital transformation is penetrating niche industries and market segments, the traditional business processes are becoming increasingly irrelevant and outdated. Manufacturing which was considered as one of the most traditional industry sectors is also undergoing major digital transformation and hence businesses are relying more and more on technology and digital solutions to stay ahead in the competition.
The manufacturing industry is going through extremely uncertain times and unpredictability regarding consumer spending/confidence on one hand and the larger geo-political and macro-economic picture on the other is high. In such conditions the push to automate and save costs, while increasing efficiencies (enhance time-to-market, digitize, and digitalize to maximize revenue, etc.) becomes even higher. To overcome these challenges, Salesforce, the world’s leading CRM, has introduced Salesforce Manufacturing Cloud that aims to boost the manufacturing industry by driving forecast accuracy and visibility, increasing team collaboration and standardizing business processes.
While the capabilities of Salesforce are well-known, but specifically for manufacturing business Salesforce Manufacturing Cloud could be a real boon as the suite will include sales management, marketing automation, partner relationship management and customer service. The powerful, cloud-based CRM has proven capabilities that helps companies manage customer accounts, track sales leads, conduct and monitor marketing campaigns, and provide service post-sale.
As Salesforce mentions in its blog, “We intend to help drive this transformation with Salesforce Manufacturing Cloud, a new solution specifically designed for manufacturers to unify account planning and forecasting for greater transparency and collaboration across their entire ecosystem. This unified view provides a clear picture of manufacturing customers through new sales agreements and account-based forecasting solutions that enable them to accurately forecast, plan, and drive predictable (and better) business outcomes.”
