In an interconnected and automated world, customers and employees alike want smooth and effortless experiences. Businesses offering smart experiences bridge the gap between their company’s product and services, and the growing connection needs of their market. To accomplish this challenging feat, they take advantage of the latest technological developments such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and AR/VR, to make bridges.
Trouw Nutrition - Creating a quick, visual and convincing prototype of a digital customer experience
Unilin - Close the loop: from digital to offline sales
Joris Ide - How to achieve an omnichannel customer experience
Smart factories are highly digitized and connected production facilities that rely on smart manufacturing. Many manufacturing lines today are only 60% productive, so there are tremendous opportunities for improvement. Smart factories also take on the challenge of their aging workforce and loss of experience by relying on digital learning tools. In other words: the smart factory does more with less – machines, people, resources.
Barco – Digitally capturing the experience of the aging workforce
The Warehouse Simulator - SAP Extended Warehouse Management
Renson - The magic B2B production triangle: intuitive web shop, creative design and sturdy SAP engine
What is smart ERP actually? In a tech world flooded by hypes like IoT, cloud computing, AR/VR, artificial intelligence, etc. you could think that ERP is either outdated or even dead. Nothing could be further away from the truth.
In every organization, ERP is still the backbone that connects business information, brings stability and helps steer companies in the right direction. Smart ERP presents the evolution into an open system, which incorporates some of the technological features mentioned above, and allows to integrate them with your ERP wherever needed. The goal of smart ERP is to provide a better customer journey for your employees, open up new business models and increase efficiency by automating where possible, resulting in an improved customer satisfaction. We will bring you some flavors of what a smart ERP can accomplish and show you how you can evolve towards a smart ERP in an efficient and feasible way.
