Strategic account executive

About

Mercateam has proven in the last 4 years its aptitude to bring a bright answer to new big challenges faced by the industry:

  • an aging workforce

  • a high turnover

  • increasingly sophisticated and technological machines and data proliferation

which are changing the composition of the manufacturing labor force and how work gets done.

As a result, manufacturers face an urgent imperative to help less experienced workers build knowledge and capabilities, and take advantage of data through collaboration.

Mercateam has built its solution hand in hand with top manufacturers to bring employees into Industry 4.0 and bridge the gap between investments made in machines and in operational workforce and its development.

We have developed a SaaS solution based on the latest technologies for mapping skills on production sites and standardizing know-how. This has led to a number of other key features managed by Mercateam, including:

  • intelligent planning of work assignments under constraints;

  • a training module adapted to the operational workforce;

  • a workforce strategic planning.

Mercateam had a strong commercial track record in the last 3 years and supports over 150 industrial sites, among which LVMH, Andros, Richemond, Dior, LISI, Collins Aerospace, etc… ****in 12 different countries, with his 360 industrial workforce-centric solution.
