Top 3 Reasons Packaging Org’s Embrace SaaS Match the Reasons They Don’t


We know. You’re struggling to do simple things to improve your packaging operations performance.

So are most people like you.

Nobody blames you. Your days are hectic, and having to manage anything else on the factory floor is just another thing to worry about.

Plus, you’re right in the middle of another big project. A never ending stream of them really.

It’s not that you don’t want to improve, but it’s tough to figure out where to make small bets and build up a list of wins, beyond some complex capital budgeting process that will delay action for months (maybe years).

The struggle is real.

Luckily, discrete, SaaS (software as a service) based software is seriously eating the packaging sector in 2016.

What were once costly performance improvement projects, have become streamlined, focused, easy to manage efforts with on-demand intelligence.

The real question is, are you a buyer of these products? Or, are you finding every reason to object to the trend to buy SaaS products?

That’s what we want to share with you in today’s video:

This is actually true.

Most people would agree that a lot of new software and hardware based SaaS products can create value, (think internet of things and the industrial internet opportunities), but not everybody is buying them.

The reasons people are embracing semi-automated, discrete SaaS based software in the packaging sector are nearly identical to all the reasons other folks choose not to buy these tools.

And, it’s starting to separate truly progressive organizations in this sector from the ones who will clearly lose in this market as they struggle to build up small performance wins as quickly as the rest.

In this video, we’ll introduce the SaaS concept briefly, and share the top 3 reasons people either say no to them, or yes to new value:

1. We’re going to find problems! And then what do we do?
2. These SaaS purchases are different than how we usually budget. So, how do we buy?
3. We already have manufacturing execution software and we spent a lot of money on it. Should we spend any more?

Knowing these reasons is nice.

Acting to evaluate where you fall and whether you’re engaging SaaS providers and responding effectively is when you’ll start to see real transformation.

Watch the video now to find out whether you fall into the “yay” or “nay” category on SaaS software, and figure out how close you are to creating new value that you couldn’t last week.
