LogicBay built FUSE, a digital, member-based ecosystem for themanufacturing industry to foster opportunities for participants to connect, learn, and grow.
When you’re a dealer or distributor in manufacturing, it can be a struggle to gain access to all the information you need to conduct business with each of the brands you represent.
FUSE provides suppliers with a modern cloud platform that allows them to connect to more resellers and customers as well as manage their content, training, and sales leads in one place.
Stay connected to current and future opportunities within the manufacturing industry by subscribing to FUSE - a digital, member-based ecosystem designed exclusively for the manufacturing industry.

The concept of Industry 4.0 – also known as the fourth industrial revolution – is mostly rooted in data, analytics, autonomous learning, and the internet of things. The impact of smart technology, however, is not limited to the supply chain and manufacturing operations. Opportunities to innovate exist in the sales and distribution channel as well.
FUSE fosters opportunities for every member of the industry to connect, learn, and grow. The bottom line – companies that become fully integrated across the entire ecosystem will improve innovation, serve customers more effectively, and grow sales faster.
Accenture Strategy surveyed 1,252 business leaders from diverse industries across the world to better understand the degree to which companies are capturing ecosystem opportunities. We found companies are pursuing new business models to navigate, or even lead, disruption. When asked what they would typically do to disrupt their industry, 60 percent of executives said, “build ecosystems.” Nearly half have already built or are currently building an ecosystem to respond to disruption.
Harvard Business Review
B2B customers are deeply uncertain and stressed. With virtually infinite information available on any solution, a swelling raft of stakeholders involved in each purchase, and an ever-expanding array of options, customers are increasingly overwhelmed and often more paralyzed than empowered. The authors’ solution, developed through work with hundreds of sales organizations globally, is a proactive, take-charge prescriptive approach that sweeps away obstacles and guides customers through decision making.
McKinsey & Company
Industrial manufacturers with aftermarket services have been disrupted by new technologies and advanced analytics, but the best organizations are not resisting but capitalizing on those trends. These companies are transforming their field operations to dramatically improve service levels and the customer experience, increasing efficiency and productivity, and creating value in new ways—both for customers and for themselves as original- equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
Digital and advanced analytics are changing the game for B2B businesses, even for the largest of customers, and those that get it right see the rewards. Building on an earlier analysis of changing customer preferences in the digital age, McKinsey & Company carried out an extensive survey of more than 150 decision makers and buying influencers at large companies—all of whom would be considered “key accounts” by their major suppliers.
For the industrial manufacturing (IM) sector, a series of external challenges ultimately may be catalysts for action that the industry has avoided for many years. Global trade disputes, tariffs and trade barriers, political instability and even the potential onset of a recession are topping a long list of threats that could have palpable repercussions for companies that make complex engineered products and equipment mostly for manufacturing operations and earth-moving projects.
