All around the globe manufacturers are getting smarter about how to run their factories. This is because they are deploying a new set of tools that dramatically boost the efficiency of their factories, add greater visibility and agility across sales and operations and keep their customers more satisfied than ever before.
At the very heart of any manufacturing company you will find hardware and software. Many of these legacy systems are developed in-house, accrued from multiple vendors and/or configured beyond recognition. They are becoming increasingly outdated which makes it difficult to get the right level of output and efficiency that customers request today. Cloud based solutions bring new ways of working, thereby decreasing manual intervention and increasing pro-activeness as well as automation and more efficient processes. This enables companies to lead change instead of being a standstill bystander to it.
Join this session to learn how seamless production works, how to increase automation, reduce error and decrease your carbon footprint from order to delivery using Oracle Cloud Applications. You’ll also get a chance to hear from our implementation partner Evosys who will showcase how customers all around the world use this new technology.
Today, customers want fast, accurate, and convenient experiences. Buyers are everywhere and they can come from any channel. Businesses must adopt hybrid buying and selling techniques to meet the ”everywhere buyer,” wherever and whenever they choose to interact. Unfortunately, many Manufacturing businesses lack the digital scalability and proper revenue model to manage these new, complex selling processes and deliver omnichannel buying experiences. The increasing need for proper data-driven selling models has led organizations to rethink how they sell – no longer is it one and done, but it is now all about long-term engagement and retention.
Director CX Strategy EMEA, Oracle
Manufacturing Industries are facing multiple challenges they need to tackle: being more agile to match changing customer needs and handling market transformations are just a few. Companies need to produce with quality to delight customers, find new products to disrupt or challenge disruptors and at the same time try to monitor in real-time to anticipate the future.
Senior Director, Manufacturing Solutions EMEA Oracle
Once orders have been captured, what then? Too frequently for manufacturing companies, fragmented logistics operations and distribution systems result in a lack of real-time visibility into the location of inventory and shipments, resulting in unfulfilled customer service expectations and excess costs. What companies increasingly require is a digitally integrated logistics network that would allow them to make better-informed operational decisions that will deliver resilience and sustainability, together with the agility to adapt to any type of business requirement and disruption. In this session we will hear both how and why companies have aligned their transport and warehousing operations with the three C’s of success – Cost, Carbon and Customer Service.
