Field service managers are challenged to optimize resources and manage costs
while delighting customers. A modern platform that provides field staff with a
robust set of tools and capabilities (including offline), intelligent analytics, and the
broader capabilities of the Salesforce platform (such as Einstein and IoT cloud) gave
FSL customers the ability to not just cut costs but optimize their field service
operations. All early adopters experienced productivity and efficiency savings;
Nucleus expects that as they gain more maturity with FSL they will find clear
correlations with increased customer satisfaction and increased field-service related
revenues as well.
For years, many support teams have been hamstrung by their traditional service desk platforms, which require complex, time-consuming coding for virtually every aspect of customization. This complexity makes it costly and difficult for support organizations to adapt—and places an increasingly substantial burden on the agility and efficiency of the business as a whole. CA Cloud Service Management is a clearly differentiated alternative to traditional service desk platforms. CA Cloud Service Management is purpose built for speed—rapidly accelerating time-to-value where other SaaS solutions fall short. Implement in days, adopt with minimal training, configure without programmers, automate end-user requests, and get automatic upgrades.
The concept of “shifting left” has gained traction in
software development as a way to increase agility,
reduce cost, and improve product and release quality.
But shifting left has also been hailed as a powerful
method for optimizing IT service management. When
the service desk team shifts left, both end users and
service desk personnel benefit from greater efficiency
and service quality, which leads to happier, more
productive internal customers—and ultimately,
better business outcomes.

In order for brand promotion activated at retail by POP materials to succeed, it must drive sales. However, retail activation materials aligning with and supporting your national brand are just as important. Many marketers fail at this due to a lack of reliability, effectiveness and value.
In this white paper you’ll learn about:
• Reinforcement of your brand
• Faster speed-to-market
• Improved quality & consistency
• Cost savings
More sales. Cost efficiency. Higher profits. – Every marketer wants these, but over-emphasizing unit cost of POP materials over the total cost of production makes them miss out on chances to achieve them.
Taking a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) approach to supply chain management for brand activations enables marketers to grow their business more quickly and profitably. It entails, however, embracing new ways of thinking that can involve “unlearning” the status quo. This piece looks at factors comprising the three main categories contributing to Total Cost of Ownership: Direct Costs, Indirect Costs, and Post-Purchase Costs.
"Global enterprises continue to look to their Procurement organisations to drive cost savings, improve service and speed up execution. As a Procurement professional, you know that moving away from paper-based processes is critical to maximising efficiency and workflow.
To achieve this, you’re probably trying to shed the hallmark and last bastion of the traditional paper-based Procurement process: the ink signature. In this eBook, you'll learn how DocuSign is making it easy for Procurement teams to go mobile, manage business relationships, and execute approval cycles faster."
Procurement’s Pesky Paper Problem
We know time is precious, so we’ll get right to the point: Paper-based processes are tarnishing your procurement department’s reputation for driving cost savings, improving service, and expediting execution. First, there’s the printing, scanning, faxing, and mailing of documents. Then comes the constant tracking down of physical signatures for everything from statements of work to supplier contracts. Add in the manual filing, searching, and retrieving of hard copies, and it’s no wonder that inefficiency abounds.
The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and no need to rework faulty products. To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support. At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.

Cooling tends to take a back seat to other concerns when server rooms and small to mid-size data centers are first built. As computing needs grow, increased heat production can compromise equipment performance and cause shutdowns. Haphazard data center expansion creates cooling inefficiencies that magnify these heat-related problems. End users may assume they need to increase cooling capacity, but this is often unnecessary. In most cases, low-cost rack cooling best practices will solve heat-related problems. Best practices optimize airflow, increase efficiency, prevent downtime and reduce costs.
