"Whether you call yourself a company, brand, brand manufacturer, manufacturer, wholesaler, branded manufacturer or one of the other myriad of categorizations out there, there’s never been a better time to focus on direct-to-consumer (D2C) marketplaces as part of your go-to market strategy. Some 60% of consumers are already visiting your website instead of your retailers’ sites, and more than half will opt to buy directly from brand manufacturers when given the option. After years of relying on marketplaces to handle so many mission-critical activities, it can be challenging to build a successful D2C model that thoroughly addresses them all. This process will require a new way of thinking for you, a cultural shift for your employees and a lot of logistics for everyone involved. But how can you know when it’s time to start selling on e-commerce marketplaces? While the benefits of transitioning to a D2C marketplace model are undeniable, it also requires a significant investment of time

When products are bought off the shelf, they are easy to price. But what happens when every product has to be configured to create an entirely bespoke solution? Our client manufactured sophisticated industrial machinery that needed to be configured to each customer, which made each quote a complex task. Sales teams had to somehow translate the customers' complex requirements into a solution; selecting the right products, features, and components; and ensuring that the end result would be not only compatible but also deliverable. Also, the quote frequently had to include various offer variations and price points. The conversation about pricing could only begin once all of this had been discussed, agreed upon, and approved.

An industrial equipment manufacturer invested heavily in a number of different apps for their customers and partners. In theory, these apps made their lives easier by helping them schedule maintenance, order spare parts, generate financial quotes, amongst several other things. Although these apps were feature-rich, adoption was very low. The problem as that these apps were created in silos by different business units without validating the need of end users. The investment was going to waste. Infosys was invited to reinvent the wheel of app development.

While simple fixes may cost a few thousand dollars, lost revenue from equipment failures can run into the millions of dollars in lost productivity and replacement costs. There can be longer-term impacts, too, if the downtime inhibits a manufacturer’s ability to meet customer needs. That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. Cheaper oil, for example, may save money initially, but it requires more frequent changes and provides less protection to the equipment, which could shorten component life. For many companies, the short-term savings simply aren’t worth the longterm cost risk. “Some companies don’t realize that they may be able to reduce their overall maintenance costs significantly by spending more up front on better quality lubricants,” Saffell says. “Their equipment may last longer and they are likely to see

That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. By adopting a total cost of ownership (TCO) program, companies can find efficiencies they didn’t even know existed and reap benefits they didn’t realize were possible. Download our white paper, “The Cost Reduction Game,” to learn more about how a TCO program can help increase equipment reliability, extend equipment life, and lower energy costs.

Many manufacturers are pursuing the immense business benefits available from digitizing and connecting their factories. Major gains in overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), reduced downtime, and manufacturing flexibility can be achieved with a factory that is digitized and connected. By providing visibility to machines and processes, manufacturers can anticipate issues that create unplanned downtime. By putting in place a secure, converged and wireless-ready network, manufacturers can have a platform that enables the agility to quickly start up new machines, cells, and lines, and rapidly deliver new products.
