Reigning in Industry 4.0
How agile manufacturing CFOs strive in the age of adaptation
We’re operating in remarkable times...
While COVID-19 continues to stifle the global road to recovery, businesses in the Manufacturing and Distribution sectors have had to find new footings in what has, perhaps over-eagerly, been dubbed “The New Normal”.
As we continue to evolve, we turn our attention once again to the prevailing systems and strategies that are helping keep our industries on course while everything else around us seems so uncertain. But, with shifting scenarios and an ever-changing paradigm, how then must today’s financial leaders adapt to face an unprecedented future?
The SYSPRO Manufacturing CFO 4.0 2021 survey was conducted across an extensive global Manufacturing and Distribution network, covering a wide variety of businesses, services, nations and operational climates. Our participants included financial leaders across both SMEs and larger enterprises, indicating that these results reflect the insights of a wide range of players in the Manufacturing and Distribution space. The report’s intention is, of course, to underline key phenomena and trends prominent in the tumultuous climate of COVID-19’s “New Normal”, with the hopes of spotlighting the golden threads of today’s best practices.
