"When you’re selling to an OEM then you have a tier one in between you and your direct customer, it becomes ‘how do you manage that supply chain?’… Pega has helped us because we’ve been able to link all three within one system."
The Business Issue
Nissha, founded in Japan in 1929, is an international discrete manufacturer of made-to-order automotive components and parts. Growth from recent mergers and acquisitions introduced enormous technology challenges to the company’s legacy systems. Manual operations and operational silos prevented smooth handling of complex, global business dealings.
To sustain growth and maintain its reputation for excellence, Nissha needed to standardize increasingly complex sales processes across original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and vendors. The company’s reliance on email and handwritten notes to manage sales opportunities created bottlenecks that would eventually cost the company future business.
Nissha's need for a flexible, scalable solution that could be rapidly developed in-house led them to choose Pega Sales Automation™ for the Detroit consumer product sales team.
