Industry 4.0 and DTC are Transforming Manufacturing
The integration of the Industrial Internet of Things, Big Data, Machine Learning, and large-scale Machine-to-Machine communication into industrial processes has sparked a 4th industrial revolution (Industry 4.0). Increased automation, self-monitoring, smart factories, and digital methods of manufacture are disrupting the old rules of economies of scale. Mass customization is replacing mass production. On-demand cloud-to-manufacturing order processes are now economically viable and are on course to totally disrupt the markets for manufactured products.
There are two categories of technologies underlying these trends:
Industry 4.0 The technologies transforming the manufacturing process.
DTC (Direct to Consumer) The technologies that directly engage customers for your manufactured products.

Digital Transformation for Manufacturers
Intelifaz is the perfect partner for your digital transformation. We have the digital toolbox and deep experience to make your project a success and do it on time and within budget.
Smart Configurators are
the Key to Direct-to-Consumer
Intelifaz configurator applications can allow a retail consumer to customize a pair of athletic shoes or a business customer to assemble a complex order of electronic components with multiple dependencies and critical specification requirements easily and quickly.
Real-time pricing, previsualization, rules-based algorithms that guarantee a manufacturable order and or a functional set of components that meets the correct specs… all of these essential functions are integral to every custom configurator we build.
eCommerce for Manufacturers
Intelifaz has worked with B-to-C and B-to-B eCommerce clients from the Fortune 500 to small regional retailers. We integrate the best technology and CX (customer experience) solutions into a customizable SaaS solution precisely tailored to your unique eCommerce needs.
Today, there are a plethora of technology solutions to choose from that make possible eCommerce solutions for manufacturers that would have been cost-prohibitive just a few years ago. Intelifaz uses technologies, services, apps, and platforms like the Strapi open-source headless CMS, the BigCommerce eCommerce platform, ERP integrations, and integration into your legacy stack or third-party apps. We can also set up seamless connections from online shopping cart to manufacturing.
Intelifaz Speed Tuning
According to an AKAMAI STUDY:
- A 100-millisecond delay in website load time can hurt conversion rates by 7 percent
- A two-second delay in web page load time increase bounce rates by 103 percent
- 53 percent of mobile site visitors will leave a page that takes longer than three seconds to load
Plugins, third-party apps, poorly compressed images, nonoptimal code, or system architecture, there are dozens of elements that can be performance killers on your site. We make sure your stores’ page load speeds aren’t costing you sales. We optimize your technology stack, images, code, and cloud infrastructure for blazing speeds and competition-beating performance.
SEO and Sales
Research form BRIGHTEDGE found that:
“51 percent of all website traffic comes from organic search, 10 percent from paid search, 5 percent for social, and 34 percent from all other sources”.
There is no better case for the critical importance of SEO to your online sales than the results of this research study. if you are not employing SEO to appear on Google for your product's top keywords, you can be sure that some of your competitors are. That’s business they are winning every day at your expense.
Intelifaz will optimize your product pages and web and mobile sites for SEO as an integral part of your development project. We will make sure that any SEO you have acquired will be preserved and we will ID any SEO deficiencies you might have have so that they are not replicated in your new build.
