Talking about ERP in mechanical manufacturing enterprises and realizing digital transformation, many managers in mechanical manufacturing industry often think that “ERP is perfect as long as it can help mechanical manufacturing enterprises build a unified and integrated management platform.” Is that right? Some managers think: “the so-called integrated management of machinery manufacturing enterprises is just an organic whole that integrates business and finance.” So, is that an accurate idea? Of course, some experts said: “whether it is machinery manufacturing enterprises or other enterprises, the realization of integrated management is only the basis of digital core, and integration is not enough.” Is his statement objective? There seems to be a lot of doubts and puzzles in the industry about ERP integrated management of mechanical manufacturing companies. Today, we will take a look at it and finally see whether integrated management is enough to help enterprises realize digital transformation?
Many people mistakenly believe that the integrated management of Enterprises — the integration of industry and Finance
When it comes to enterprise integrated management, including many mechanical manufacturing enterprise managers will think: mechanical manufacturing integrated management is nothing more than business and financial integration management. If the business process is smooth, the cost of financial control and compliance risk is small, the operation of the enterprise will be more smooth, and this is the effect. In fact, this is only a reflection on the realm of industry 2.0 ~ 3.0, which seems to be far away from the current industry 4.0. The real integrated management needs to start from the business of the enterprise, and manage all departments, including the external supply chain and other national unified digital platform management.
Based on such a unified integrated management platform, the integration of industry and finance is only a small part of it. In order to meet the trend of industry 4.0, it is necessary to realize the comprehensive integrated management of enterprises. And then look down.
Truly unified integrated management of mechanical manufacturing enterprises
What is truly unified integrated management? We may refer to the intuitive experience brought by SAP BYD system in the establishment of digital core platform in acloudear mechanical equipment manufacturing enterprises digital transformation white paper by acloudear, an expert in mechanical manufacturing digital transformation and SAP platinum partner.
Enterprise integrated management based on SAP BYD
Do you feel that for the integrated management of mechanical manufacturing companies, the framework and details are basically enough? Don’t worry. Let’s take a look at the three construction directions proposed in the white paper for the digital transformation of machinery manufacturing enterprises. Build a digital core platform, an intelligent manufacturing platform, and a customer-centered innovation service platform. In this way, do you think all these are really enough?
If not, what else can we start with?
If the construction of unified integrated management is equivalent to the completion of the construction of digital core platform, then the intelligent manufacturing and customer-centered innovation service platform? For example, in the era of experience economy, how can we firmly lock in and stick to customers? If we can’t put customers at the core of business and build a unified and personalized interactive experience, then the sincerity of customer-centered is not enough. The key to achieve all this is to need a CRM led innovation platform to help enterprises upgrade the customer experience.
Above, we show you the innovation and upgrading of customer experience in accelerating the digital transformation of enterprises outside integration through SAP customer experience, the fourth generation CRM solution of SAP. Starting from customer demand, aiming at different dimensions of enterprise operation and management, with the help of market cloud, e-commerce cloud, sales cloud, service cloud and customer data cloud, with data as the core, we can understand the reasons behind customer behavior, and quickly take action to provide trustworthy personalized experience to help enterprises win customer trust efficiently.
Customer evaluation of SAP CX
“[SAP customer data cloud] is our winning weapon, which not only solves this problem, but also supports us to build our own small network, eventually creating a multi site environment composed of stores and websites, and realizing a unified login and preference setting center.”
