The Connected Economy: Now Open to Midsize Companies
The connected economy is proving to be a source of unprecedented opportunity and value. Once thought of as the stronghold of large enterprises, the connected economy is now wide open to midsize companies. Leveraging cloud technologies to connect employees, customers, partners, and devices together is fast creating new ways of doing business. Never before has there been a greater opportunity for innovative midsize companies to quickly and economically become part of the connected economy, driving their company’s growth and exceeding their customers’ expectations.
Case in point: Scott Fetzer Electrical Group (SFEG), a Berkshire Hathaway company that until recently was relying on a 25-year-old ERP system that severely constrained the company’s growth and threatened its competitiveness. SFEG is a recent consolidation of three separate electrical parts manufacturers, and the Kenandy system SFEG ultimately selected made the consolidation possible. Kenandy also helped SFEG modernize its operations, including adding robots to their production lines.
Kenandy also paved the way for SFEG to join the connected economy. SFEG plans to participate in the “Internet of Things” so they can gauge how their products are being used and serviced. Says Rob Goldiez, General Manager, “We’re excited that we can use Kenandy to support new features, such as enabling our products to be connected over the Internet. We are committed to living and breathing our innovation vision throughout the company, and Kenandy is integral to enabling that vision.”
