Modern Manufacturing: Transforming from Product-Centricity to Customer-Centricity

From steam power to mass production and into the digital era, the last 300 years have made a profound impact on the manufacturing industry. As a result of these innovations, manufacturers can produce more, in less time and at a lower cost.

However, as we enter the fourth industrial revolution, manufacturers are learning that they must look beyond pure product-centric, operational efficiency to customer-centricity to remain successful. Today, technology must also support manufacturers as they build deeper, more meaningful relationships with their channel partners and customers. This shift in priorities comes from evolving customer expectations in the fourth industrial revolution; now every industry must operate with customer-centric, digital excellence.

During this 45-minute webinar, we will:

  • Investigate changing customer expectations of manufacturers in the digital age with Tony Kratovil (Senior Industry Director of Manufacturing at Salesforce)
  • Examine the tools and strategies available for manufacturers to build a customer-centric, integrated digital experience to meet changing customer expectations
