Enrich Data, Boost Manufacturing Sales: How Manufacturers and Distributors Can Bridge The Service Gap
Manufacturers and distributors rely on each other to support and grow their respective businesses, both of which are based on a mutual goal: Sales.
But what happens when monthly figures show sales below expectations? Despite unsatisfactory results, both parties simply rationalize the problem as “the way it is” and grudgingly continue to tolerate the problem rather than solve it.Read More »
Architects, engineers and contractors in the AEC industry have increased their focus on how they can improve efficiencies and better meet owners’ demands for an ‘as-built’ BIM model at the completion of a project. Utilizing more manufacturer-specific BIM models, complete with specs, performance characteristics and standards like COBIE, is becoming more important.
These AEC professionals seek products from manufacturers that can deliver the rich and detailed information they need, exactly when it’s needed in their process. To meet these expectations, building product manufacturers need to re-tool and re-think their sales and marketing process to fully adapt to the new demands of BIM.Read More »
Digitized information can make the most complex processes simpler and more efficient — especially for complex industrial parts.
By delivering rich and detailed digital product information, manufacturers are increasingly optimizing their product data offerings with CAD files, drawings and configurable components, differentiating their digital customer experience from their competitors.Read More »
As the commercial construction market rebounds, new projects are being executed using the latest BIM tools. AEC firms have committed to the BIM process and are increasing their demand for manufacturer-specific BIM objects to meet the demands of their projects.Read More »
In an effort to connect with potential customers, many manufacturers have established a web presence for their companies. But the leading manufacturers know that simply having a website isn’t enough to fulfill customers’ needs.
Most manufacturer websites include product information at a basic level. As an industry professional, you know that “basic” isn’t found in the vocabulary of engineers, designers, and procurement managers — these customers thrive on comprehensive product data, such as CAD models, drawings, and spec sheets.Read More »
