Here are 8 reasons executives at mid- to large-sized manufacturers, distributors and retailers choose Four51 to help accelerate their digital transformation:

1. You have complex workflows and ordering processes –

You have error-prone, manual order entry processes, or extraneous approval processes, or complex supply chains that are disconnected. You realize that automation could create significant efficiencies and opportunity for improved ROI for the business.

2. You have a multitude of disconnected systems –

You’ve walked into a mess of systems and software used across various departments and customer channels, and nothing works together. You need to consolidate and connect to get the data talking to each other. In fact, according to one study, 84% of companies claim integration challenges are slowing digital transformation progress.

3. You need to modernize your infrastructure –

You need to move from on-premise hosting to the cloud. This migration allows you to speed up time-to-market, consolidate enterprise data that supports strategic decision-making, and enable businesses of any shape and size to “go digital.” David S. Linthicum, a chief cloud strategy officer at Deloitte Consulting explains, “There’s no longer any waiting for hardware and software to be procured and configured, which can take months. Instead, IT can spin up servers needed to support a new product line in hours or add capacity to accommodate expanding the business.”

But migration can’t happen overnight. So you need the ability to transition from on-premise today, to a hybrid-cloud model tomorrow, and ultimately to fully cloud-hosted environment.

4. You need to reduce technology debt –

Technology budgets are larger than ever. But that means all eyes are on you. You need to be able to communicate and defend the value of technology. So you need to find ways to reduce technical debt and increase your ROI.

5. You need to deliver modern digital experiences –

Whether it’s coming externally from customers or internally from colleagues across the organization, you need a win. Maybe you have a customer that needs a solution today or they’re leaving. Maybe you need to prove to the company that IT can be a driver of innovation. Either way, you need to build trust through the technology you are using and demonstrate speed and agility.

6. You need scale –

You need to be prepared for open-ended, unpredictable growth, and avoid having to worry that your technology won’t be able to handle your growth. You need to have unlimited bandwidth and data storage to handle growth in catalog size, order volume, customer base size, and more.

7. You need to be future-proof –

You know technology is continuing to change, and you need to be prepared for it. You want to be able to extend the experience to other parts of the business and to be able to take advantage of new technologies as they emerge (AI, IoT, etc.).

8. You are unique, and you can’t afford to change the way business is done –

No one does business the way your business does business. And you’ve been doing it this way for “forever. Changing it completely to fit into the confines of technology just isn’t going to work.
