In an industry like manufacturing that’s remained the backbone of economies all over the world for centuries, change has always been a constant. After all, transformation is at the heart of manufacturing, utilizing the resources and raw materials of the world to create objects that are more valuable than the sum of their parts. But in 2021, the world’s most valuable resource isn’t something that can be formed into a shape. Well, not exactly.

In just about every industry you could think of, data and analytics have changed the way business is done in ways that still don’t seem possible. It’s changed the way publishers distribute information, the way banks buy and sell assets, and the way advertisers reach new audiences. And in this short but sweet e-Book, we’re going to show you what data can do for you and your manufacturing operation. Imagine if information technology didn’t require an IT professional to process it. Imagine creating products that customers want, before they even know that they want them. Imagine machines that tell you they are in need of repairs, months before they break down.

These might sound like futuristic fantasies, but in factories across the country, all of the above is already happening. And with modern Enterprise Resource Planning ERP software, capable of mining and processing data and analytics for all aspects of your business, they could begin happening at your factory as well.

Senior level executives are at the core of any big departmental change. Success and failure rests on their shoulders. They need to be involved. Despite the pressure of this role, you can help them understand they don’t need to do everything.

Their job is to ensure new strategies align with overall business goals and changes are clearly laid out for employees. Your job is to convince them that Field Service Management (FSM) software does, in fact, align with business goals and explain how you’ll handle the transition.

Equipment manufacturers eager to capture more of the lifetime revenue stream generated by their machinery sales know that quality product support is one of the most important after-market success drivers. Product support also represents a major share of equipment dealer personnel investment and revenue.

Field service and product support executives need look no further than the valuable data their machines are producing for the key to unlocking growth in the after-market. Indeed, access to troves of machine performance, diagnostic and maintenance data hold great promise for positively impacting customer service experiences through a more proactive, preventive approach to product support. But having the data is only the start. Sophisticated machine telematics technology and the data it produces often stands in stark contrast to the largely manual, paperbased means of delivering and tracking field service for many construction equipment manufacturers and dealers.

So what is standing in the way of forward-looking construction equipment firms seeking to translate machine data into field service automation? There are many commonplace problems we hear from manufacturers, each presenting unique challenges. Each of the following common problems we encounter also includes a practical planning consideration.
