Demystifying Industry 4.0: A Webinar Series with EY, IndustryWeek and FleetOwner – Part 2

How Digitalization Can Drive Stronger Customer Engagement

Available On Demand — Originally Broadcast August 11, 2021

12:00 p.m. ET (GMT -5, New York) — 1 Hour

With so much competition and opportunity in the market today, manufacturers are compelled to pursue deeper connections with their customer base to protect their business.

Digitalization may provide a solution in this effort. Just as other industries have used technology to build greater awareness of consumer trends and behaviors, manufacturers can do the same and break down these barriers to customer engagement.

In this webcast, Ernst & Young LLP and IndustryWeek panelists look at how digitalization can enhance communication and create more synergies between manufacturers and customers.

Join us to receive key insights on:

  • Why improving customer experience needs to be a top priority for manufacturers across all sectors
  • Why many companies forget to involve customers when designing the “ideal” customer experience
  • How a digitally integrated customer experience can effectively blend different disciplines to create a more compelling value proposition

We’ll also share insights from digital transformation advisors on:

  • The need for organizations to look beyond siloed departments and see the whole business when pursuing large-scale transformation
  • Why manufacturers further up the value chain need to take the time to understand the wants and needs of the end customer
  • The importance of internal buy-in when implementing large-scale changes in an organization
