Manufacturing Cloud from Salesforce has revolutionized the manufacturing industry with automation, interconnectivity, machine learning, real-time data analysis, IIoT, advanced computing, chatbots, and AI solutions. However, the industry is relatively slow to adopt these digital transformation solutions. This slow adoption rate is often attributed to the complex transformation journey and uncertainty of these technologies’ benefits and results.
Salesforce Manufacturing Cloud is a unique cloud-based CRM that helps manufacturing brands connect planning, manufacturing, product, sales, and communication across their ecosystem. The technology solution combines your back office and field service operations to enhance the experience for partners, employees, and all supply chain stakeholders. In an era when 88% of customers expect companies to accelerate digital initiatives, Salesforce Manufacturing Cloud implementation is non-negotiable.
The product is a highly recommended cloud software for top manufacturers. It is suitable for manufacturers or distributors who deal with contractual or non-binding agreements for purchasing quantities of a product over time. There is an increased need if you struggle with visibility between your operations, sales, finance, and value chain teams.
Here is how Manufacturing Cloud and add-ons benefit your business and how rSTAR simplifies the integration journey.
