131 Geoff Webb Vice President of Solution Strategy, isolved Ravi Subramanyan Director of Industry Solutions Manufacturing, HiveMQ “Delivered on Microsoft Azure, the isolved People Cloud has built-for-manufacturing HR software and services to help manufacturing businesses navigate a job market plagued with recruiting difficulties, skill shortages and significant turnover. With isolved People Cloud for Manufacturing, businesses deliver a better employee experience, improve retention of key staff, and expedite onboarding and productivity. Time-to-productivity is reduced with simplified applicant tracking, skill-specific job boards and paperless onboarding as well as enabling skill-focused and career-driven learning paths to close talent gaps and ensure compliance with occupational safety and health administration management, reporting and credential tracking.” “HiveMQ allows companies to harness the power of their IoT data to deliver new business outcomes. It supports missioncritical applications with predictable data movement and gives companies the data insights they need to find new efficiencies through automation, create new products, and scale the business within the demands of a real-time communications environment. To be able to efficiently extend IoT data to Microsoft Cloud for Manufacturing, HiveMQ provides a robust data extension from its broker that interacts with Azure Event Hub to support machine learning and analytics use cases.” “As manufacturers increasingly need to customise their products and manage their clients across multiple sales channels, sales have become increasingly complex and legacy processes have become more wasteful. A configure, price, quote (CPQ) solution streamlines the entire configuration and quoting process, empowering sales to do their jobs more effectively. And, by guiding salespeople through their configuration selections, we ensure that quotes and orders are entered efficiently, preventing reworking across the organisation’s enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management and ecommerce solutions. Experlogix is the only solution that works with all parts of the Microsoft Dynamics 365 suite to offer a unified sales experience.” Peter Willemse Vice President of Product Management, Experlogix INDUSTRIALS & MANUFACTURING
