India’s manufacturing sector has a lot going for it. A strong domestic market, a large pool of engineers, billions of dollars in foreign direct investments, and supportive government policies like ‘Make in India’ and Product Linked Incentives (PLIs) have the potential to transform the country into a global manufacturing powerhouse.
WEF estimates that India’s manufacturing sector could contribute $500 billion in annual economic impact by 2030.
That’s huge. However, to get there, manufacturers will need to up their game, not just on the shop floor but also on the front lines. It’s no longer enough to simply make a great product. You also have to be able to accurately forecast demand for it, optimise sales, collaborate seamlessly with channel partners, and respond rapidly to market shifts.
Consumers, too, have evolved. They want to be engaged at a personal, real-time level. Many expect excellent after-sales service.
How do you meet all these demands intelligently, quickly, and at scale?
Find out in our new ebook, which highlights five manufacturing Trailblazers from India that have cracked the code on sales, service, and customer satisfaction. These inspiring companies are using Salesforce to set new standards for customer engagement, and accelerate growth like never before.
