We’re in the midst of unprecedented business change with three major “storms” impacting startups, small and medium-sized businesses, and enterprises alike while completely shifting the way we do business. While advances in Supply Chain 4.0 and Digital Transformation have slowly advanced over the last decade, recent storms of change have rapidly disrupted even the most risk averse industries.

So how should business and technology leaders move forward in this volatile climate with a coherent strategy for success?

Check out our new eBook, which summarizes the current impact of three major business “storms” — digital transformation, global crisis (e.g. COVID-19), and supply chain 4.0 — while also proposing a technology-led solution as an alternative to existing on premise or legacy software systems. Essentially, how leaders can find a calm within the eye of the perfect business storm through a comprehensive Cloud ERP technology solution of Salesforce and Ascent Solutions.

Adopting cloud-based technology is a smart approach for companies that are concerned about how to scale their operations and customer growth in the current volatile business climate. Salesforce is an industry leader in CRM quickly approaching $20 billion in annual revenue because of it’s cloud-based technology, subscription model, and customer-centric approach. Salesforce’s focus on “Customer 360” has truly shaped its product roadmap, tools, and apps over the last twenty years. In fact, one of Salesforce’s best kept secrets is it provides capability for companies to manage both front office (CRM) and back office (inventory, orders, finance, accounting) through a combination of Salesforce and partner apps on the AppExchange.

As companies have historically been sold a rigid, one size fits all monolithic ERP tool, challenges such as low utilization, suboptimal demand planning, and low return on investment naturally ensued.
