Every B2B company experiences challenges that are both unique to its organization and type of industry. Whether it’s labor shortages, fragmented patient data, or falling Math and reading scores, the complexity of challenges often keeps industry stakeholders up at night. In light of this, custom B2B software solutions offer a means of achieving organizational integrity and operational excellence.
1. Industrial/Manufacturing Labor Shortages
The pandemic has brought the skilled labor shortage to the fore, setting off critical challenges in the midst of double-digit unemployment. According to Deloitte, two million skilled jobs will go unfilled between 2015 and 2025. In addition, roughly 25% of the manufacturing workforce comprises workers above 55 years of age.
Despite apprenticeship opportunities and fast-track training programs at colleges, the industrial/manufacturing sector continues to lack skilled workers.
However, B2B custom software solutions allow manufacturing/industrial businesses to track and manage a contingent workforce in light of labor shortages. And, in particular, workforce management software facilitates a seamless experience across a diversity of channels. Workers get visibility into timesheets, attendance records, shift changes, and weekly income from tablets, mobile devices, and desktops.
Customized B2B software solutions promote flexibility, transparency, and workforce optimization, a plus for the manufacturing/industrial sectors during this critical time.
2. Managing Multiple Industrial Job Sites
B2B software solutions can transform job site management. Knowing where your assets are, from company trucks to heavy equipment, allows you to make better logistics decisions. You’ll be able to place the right equipment and the right operators at the right locations, without having to duplicate equipment across multiple job sites.
That same B2B software can remind operators to perform critical maintenance tasks or bring their equipment in for maintenance at specific intervals.
Worried about the cost? Software customized to manage your assets can pay for itself in the first year simply by reducing maintenance and replacement costs. In fact, the global workforce management software market is expected to increase to more than $3 trillion by 2026 and grow at a CAGR of 4.21% between 2021 and 2026. The trend towards remote working has only increased the need for flexibility, workforce optimization, and operational agility.

3. Managing a Patient’s Care Across the Spectrum
The fact is that healthcare organizations continue to struggle with data siloes, relying on manual processes to glean needed information. When you add paper health records in physician offices and testing facilities, assessing real-time data becomes a nearly impossible task. All things considered, the cost of extracting data from isolated platforms may prove prohibitive to institutions already struggling with limited resources.
But, there’s hope.
B2B custom software facilitates data migration and integration from disparate sources. This results in improved patient care and fewer errors on the part of healthcare practitioners.

4. Reaching the At-Risk Student Before It’s Too Late
Making sure students get what they need on an individual basis has always been a challenge. Unquestionably, schools collect large amounts of data pertaining to attendance, classroom performance, and behavioral assessments. However, siloed data prevents educators from getting an integrated picture of student needs.
Custom B2B software solutions that integrate all available data can reveal important trends. In turn, teachers can implement changes, long before the student drops out. With custom software, educators receive a more granular view of student performance.
For example, have students experienced cataclysmic changes in academic performance? Do attendance records and grades point to a need for intervention? Custom software development solutions can help educators access and leverage data effectively to increase student motivation and engagement.
