Sales in manufacturing involves the management of distributors, vendors, retailers, contractors, installers and subcontractors. In a traditional CRM system, multiple opportunities are managed in a way that focuses the implementation of one opportunity against one customer. In other words, if you are selling a product to the end customer or if a retailer or a distributor is selling your product to the same customer, the CRM system will not classify it as a single opportunity. Instead, it will result in won or lost opportunities based on the incorrect number of opportunities being formed.
AlphaBOLD’s Dynamics 365 for manufacturing solution on the other hand, is a scalable software that predicts the correct forecasting of opportunities by tracking all these classified scenarios accurately. It also facilitates accurate reporting for sales forecasting based upon end customer pipeline enabling our solution to create multiple quotations that can address different customers for the same sales.

Customer Service in manufacturing has a huge component of aftermarket service programs. AlphaBOLD has developed programs that when combined with unified service desk, provides customer service with a one window information tracking solution to be more efficient, effective and address queries faster. Effective aftermarket programs require integration with ERP systems, which is another domain in which BOLDEnthusiasts specialize.

Talking devices is our IoT and AI initiative to automate manufacturing business processes in a proactive manner rather than being reactive about it. By bringing in databases, computers, and systems with sensor data, we make operational processes more efficient and manageable. We develop specialized sensors (accelerometers) which help in the retrieval of information such as the current, the temperature and the vibration frequency in a noninvasive manner. Using our tools, manufacturers can schedule maintenance in a timely manner.
