Going digital is not about leveraging the latest technologies. Nor is it adapting your organization to modern market dynamics. Well beyond that, digitalization is a fundamental transformation of the way you do business that needs to seep into the most stubborn legacies of your company. Simply put, it is a metamorphosis.
Speed fuels business. As an organization you need to race against competition, sprint with customers and run a marathon alongside partners. It is unacceptable that tasks far removed from your business priorities directly impact your agility.
Being in the know creates opportunities. Know what your customers want. Know where you are falling short. Know how you can fix your supply. And then act upon all that knowledge. Manufacturers need to connect their entire supply chain to the internet and to their backend systems to track and optimize their distribution and to sell to customers in more and newer ways.
Traditional distribution channels have plateaued, if not tapered down. Businesses need new channels and new markets to grow. More importantly, they need to wow their customers at new touchpoints to build a loyal relationship. To several organizations, this might be a dangerous proposition strewn with large budgets and risky outcomes. What if it isn’t? What if you could conduct business globally with minimal risk? What if you could explore new channels and touchpoints without affecting your current operations?
