“I originally started my career on the production floor at a couple different manufacturers and eventually made my way into the data world through an SAP R/3 Implementation.” “It really opened my eyes to enterprise software applications and services.” Now as digital transformation sweeps the industry, manufacturers are looking to invest in their CRM to become more customer centric. Manufacturing, prior to covid, has focused on ERP. “How do I make a product, ship, sell, and service a product”. The omnichannel experience for the customer is in its beginning stages for many manufacturers. Building this dynamic communication model needs guidance from experts, molding the process as the business adopts this practice for correct implementation and to ensure adoption from partners and customers alike. “Adoption is key,” requiring support in change management and an explicit dedication to making action that translates into the vision of the company. “This change is initiated from Leadership,” and HIKE2 offers the rigor to guide leadership’s focus on data driven decisions and their customer’s experience.
