The manufacturing industry has seen lot of disruptions because of ever dynamic business environment.
In last one decade the global boundaries have shrunk the manufacturers are facing competition from manufacturers in other countries, the supply chain management has become more complex, end customer is overwhelmed with availability of different substitutes and there are compliances, rules and regulations to be followed during manufacturing processes.
The game of manufacturing has moved to next level from production numbers to adoption of newer technology and digitalization. For example, the legacy technology infrastructure in one of our client, a leading Indian conglomerate with presence in 70 countries, was not able to support the growth which they had been witnessing. They had been hosting a central Dynamic Navision Server with Virtual Desktop environment, and were not able to maintain a good uptime because of networking and bandwidth issues.
In this scenario it was required that the business should have best IT infrastructure which can meet their growing requirements. The cloud migration was proposed to the client and once they were on Azure they witnessed zero downtimes, and achieved reliability, agility and cost effectiveness.
Our technology team worked closely with the client’s internal IT team and all the maintenance activities were planned and communicated to the client team in advance.
We work with the businesses in most collaborative fashion. We bring our learnings from different past projects and team of consultants and engineers are well versed with various manufacturing related processes this helps in reducing the solution implementation turn-around-time.
For leading Cigarette Manufacturer our SharePoint Consulting Team designed a Knowledge Management Portal to empower the marketing and the product development team with latest industry trends and findings. We deployed a dedicated SharePoint team consisting of analyst, solution architects, developers and QA experts who analyzed requirements, designed the application and crafted the solution, meeting all of the client’s needs. In another instance, one of a leading automobile manufacturer in India had been facing problem in managing PAN India training for its internal sales and channel sales teams.
The problem was complex as the training was different for each category of learner and the learning modules were different. This was a tricky situation for client’s employee to manage learning centers, faculty and dealer employee manually all over India.
We provided a platform for online dealer and learning management with this company got an ability to track the records and generate the report for dealer and dealer employees training history.
The application contains multiple modules. As we know that that businesses desire to decrease costs and increase productivity and they are looking to achieve this though better utilization of IT.
