“Customer experience is now the key competitive factor, more so than product and price.”
Customer demands are changing; they expect the information they need when they need it. In order to stay ahead and meet these demands, manufacturers must focus on creating a consistent, seamless customer experience and transform from being product-centric organisations to customer-centric organisations.
Salesforce CRM was built with the manufacturing industry in mind and evolves to meet the challenges customer-centric manufactuing companies face. 4C supports you in leveraging Salesforce to offer better customer experiences to gain a competitor advantage.

Priorities for Manufacturers
Single view of the customer
Rapid growth and M&A activities mean that many manufacturers have got multiple siloed systems and trapped data, making it difficult for them to have a complete, consistent view of their customers. Having this single view of the customer is becoming increasingly key in manufacturing in order to stay competitive and ensure that every interaction and touchpoint customers have is seamless and joined up, even before the customer has bought and deployed a product.
Getting to grips with IoT
There’s no getting away from it, we are in the midst of the fourth industrial revolution, innovation and technology are transforming our economies. In manufacturing AI is helping companies get closer to their customers. It is impacting all areas of the business from sales, to service, to back office, by driving automation through intelligence and enabling teams to deliver smarter, data driven strategies and decisions which transcend into better customer experiences.
Delivering an intelligent service through connected systems
This era of manufacturing is not only about creating a compelling product, it’s about the experience and value-added services manufacturers can deliver to their customers. This can be tricky when legacy systems and technology create a disconnect between departments. To provide a smart, personalised service, manufacturers need data in one centralised location. By leveraging all available data - from customer data to connected devices, manufacturers can deliver the smarter services that the connected customer demands.
