Leveraging on business operations for the automotive industry with ANNATA 365.
The automotive industry proves to be more challenging everyday with the introduction of new technologies and rising competition from different manufacturers. The future of the automotive industry is riddled with complexities in managing its operations and manufacturing processes. Today’s diverging market allows manufacturers to explore new market opportunities aside from its focus on existing business market segments. At the same time the industry will see itself navigating through several challenges and adapting to new technological processes, which some industry players are not prepared for. Annata was chosen to assist a manufacturer to deal with the industry challenges and to transform their existing operations and processes to adapt to and embrace new opportunities through technologies like IoT, machine learning, and cloud-based services.
ANNATA 365 for Dynamics was chosen as a solution to enhance the finance and operations management for an automotive manufacturer based in the United States, specializing in bodywork customizations for high quality RV’s, camping trailers and motor-homes. The solution included streamlining business processes between the company, their partners, suppliers and vendors.
One of their primary challenge was the technology limitations of their heavily customized multiple system-setup which held multiple transactions that includes warranty claims as well as the sales and purchasing activities. Their current system proved to be outdated and most of its operations were done manually which resulted in delays experienced by dealers for processes such as claims reimbursements.
Our team proposed Annata 365 for Finance & Operations as the core solution for the manufacturer which included a variety of modules such as warranty and parts management, case management, manufacturing accelerators, dealer portal, and product lifecycle management. These implementations were vital to provide timely information to the management team and to produce accurate data while increasing the level of service to its different dealers.
Annata 365 for Dynamics an end-to-end information technology solution for the Automotive and Equipment industry. Annata 365 solutions are deeply embedded in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 ecosystem, provide functionality that helps manufacturers, distributors, dealers, rental companies and fleet operators to deal with the industry challenges and to transform their existing operations and processes to adapt to and embrace new opportunities through technologies like IoT, machine learning, and cloud-based services.
