Hitachi Solutions America, a leading provider of global industry solutions powered by the Microsoft Cloud, has launched its latest addition to the Engage product line. Engage for Equipment Dealers offers dealers of heavy machinery and equipment an end-to-end solution that automates and streamlines processes and gives unprecedented insight into business data. The solution helps them better support sales team efforts, increase opportunities and revenue, improve post-sales service and sales, and enhance the overall customer experience.
Antiquated management systems and processes have resulted in millions of dollars in missed revenue for heavy equipment dealers. Engage for Equipment Dealers centralizes and simplifies sales, equipment, and service operations — bringing all data under one platform, where it can be leveraged to enhance efficiency and profits. The solution also gives dealers 360-degree visibility of the entire customer lifecycle, so they can effectively manage operations, amplify post-sales and service revenue, and strengthen customer and vendor relationships.
