Retaining Share in Ambiguous Market Conditions: A Playbook for Building Products Distributors

Published By: Zilliant     Published Date: Oct 11, 2019
The building products / construction industry is more visibly representative of the health of the economy than any other. The avatar of the Great Recession may well be images of doomed projects on abandoned construction sites. As such, it’s unavoidable for leaders of building products distributors to experience market-induced anxiety as a matter of course. 2020 looms as the start of a new decade but many analysts fear it will also mark the end of the building boom. Recent indicators point to a slowdown at least. The existential question: what areas of building products distribution are ripe for reimagination, safeguarding against ambiguous market conditions now and in the future? This whitepaper provides the answers with a playbook that reveals where margins and revenue leak in most B2B distribution companies and provides reimagined strategies for retaining and growing share through price optimization, deal management and costing guidance.

Complexity, Competition & Skills: Dynamics Hindering MRO Growth

Published By: Zilliant     Published Date: Oct 11, 2019
The maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and industrial distribution industry is massive and continues to grow at a steady pace. Despite this positive outlook, individual MRO distributors aren’t short on their own challenges when it comes to retaining and growing their market share. There are several factors hindering MRO companies from retaining the share they have and claiming more. Namely: • Complexity: Their large customer counts and behemoth SKU counts render it impossible to give reps market-aligned pricing guidance and sales intelligence • Competition: MRO is ripe for poaching by Amazon, and as a result, traditional distributors continue to see market share slipping away to the online giant • Skills: A massive generational shift in the workforce is resulting in a skills gap that’s proving particularly problematic to fill In this playbook for MRO and industrial products distributors, we will discuss how growth is hindered in this dynamic industry and then provide reimagin

The Engineers’ Guide to Smart Sensors

Published By: Panasonic     Published Date: Oct 01, 2019
For manufacturers, the transition to Industry 4.0 has meant the accumulation of data, massive data. Indeed, the accumulation, distribution and evaluation of data are driving virtually every decision on the manufacturing plant floor and supply chains shaping those decisions. Given the striking fact that ninety percent of the data in the world has been created over the last two years, it isn’t surprising that more than 60 percent of large companies report having a Chief Data Officer. But what has opened the floodgates to this deluge of information in manufacturing? Ordinary sensors have been transformed into smart sensors with the advent of IoT technologies and are being deployed by manufacturers along every step of the supply chain. Sensors are now detecting everything from when a piece of equipment will need maintenance to controlling energy costs inside factories.

Better together: How co-innovation is driving success for startups

Published By: Panasonic     Published Date: Oct 01, 2019
From smartphones and cloud computing to ride-sharing services and electric cars, disruptive technology is changing the way we live – and nobody understands disruption better than startups. Whether they’re independent entities funded by VCs or emerging companies within the walls of a large corporation, startups recognize the power of technology to solve problems and improve lives, and they have been instrumental in challenging the status quo and shaping our society. But startups can’t be expected to do it all alone. Lean operating budgets and a need to move quickly demand that these organizations make efficient use of their limited resources – and that means not “reinventing the wheel” when it comes to their underlying tech. By working with the right partner who can provide the right resources and expertise at the right time, startups are free to focus on what matters most: bringing their innovation to market.

3 Ways to Break Through Barriers to Omnichannel Success

Published By: ttec     Published Date: Jul 24, 2019
Omnichannel is one of those words everyone uses, but few use correctly. It’s not another word for multichannel. It’s a different state of existence. In our experience, multichannel is the ability to interact with customers across many different channels, but not necessarily in a cohesive fashion. As new channels become available, they are “bolted on” to existing customer experience infrastructure such as CRM or customer support systems. Too frequently, the management of these channels becomes siloed (web versus in-store sales, for example). The effect of this from the customer experience standpoint can be disjointed and jarring. For example, the resolution of an issue following a customer conversation with an associate in the contact center may not be reflected when the customer goes online or into a store. Yet the ability to offer multichannel service experience is table stakes for today’s business. If you’re not available in the channels where customers want you to be, you cease to b

Creating Sophisticated Employees in the Age of Automation

Published By: ttec     Published Date: Jul 24, 2019
By the time most customers reach a human employee with a question, chances are they have already researched online or tried to self-serve. This means employee transformation is required to develop more sophisticated employees in the age of automation to solve more advanced customer issues. Because front-line jobs are becoming more complex, employees need to be tactical, technical, and ready to emotionally handle these new types of interactions. Recently, Lamont Exeter, head of Learning & Development at TTEC Digital, teamed up with Tim Duranleau of SAP Litmos in a webinar to discuss ways that companies can combine learning and technology to create more sophisticated employees.
