“The dashboards are a lifesaver for me. With the data the sales guys have now at a click of a button, they’ll have a lot more time to sell.”
Tractors & Farm Equipment
Typically, industry inventory turns are in the range of 2.5 to 3. We are currently at 4 plus.
And our sales have grown up by almost 25%.
FusionOps: Thanks for speaking with us today, Sunil, Hetah, Paul and Niki. Sunil, tell us a little about Mahindra.
Sunil: Mahindra is Indian-based company. It’s a $17 billion group. What we have is a dealer network which is 500 dealers across North America.
FusionOps: How did you gather supply chain information before FusionOps
Paul: Prior to FusionOps, a business manager would have to pull a report himself, parse the data to his territory, maybe make a call or two to see what was coming, what a dealer had. So FusionOps allows our business managers or field reps to be able to analyze their data at whatever level that they’re capable of.
FusionOps: Can you tell us how FusionOps helps you manage your business differently?
Sunil: FusionOps has really helped us in having this visibility across. And the entire organization speaks one language. I would be very proud to say that FusionOps has helped us not only increase our business, increase our retails, it has also helped us in ensuring our inventory. Typically, the industry inventory turns for this type of things are in the range of 2.5 to 3. We are currently at 4 plus. And our sales have grown up by almost 25%.
FusionOps: What’s one of the first things you gained from FusionOps?
Niki: Now, the guys can access all of their own state-wise data, dealer-wise data, real-time, fast, whenever they need to. The dashboards are a lifesaver for me. I love the dashboard. The data that they have now at a click of a button, they’ll have a lot more time to sell more tractors and really see where they need to go.
FusionOps: How does FusionOps fit into your overall Cloud strategy?
Sunil: When I see all this data available on a cloud-based technology, it becomes much easier to access this data. So I am very, very confident that FusionOps is the right company for us, and it’s a cloud-based thing.
FusionOps: How do you find working with the FusionOps solution?
Sunil: Honestly speaking, this is a very, very easy tool to work with. On one button, you actually know, in your entire system of North America, how much is the inventory you are carrying. When you have a picture like this, it becomes much easier to analyze that.
Hetah (CFO): Ease of use comes from those innovations and quick support and the speed of that, which my team loves.
FusionOps: How has it been partnering with FusionOps?
Sunil and Niki: The guys with whom we work in FusionOps are excellent for us.
Hetah: They are very cooperative, understanding, and always looking for the best solutions in the given circumstances.
FusionOps, for sure, is a very, very fantastic tool. It’s covering the entire gamut of an organization. I’m absolutely delighted with FusionOps.
