However, the extent to which different industries “surf” on the digitalization wave varies. Both providers and customers can take advantage of completely new possibilities that go far beyond the traditional website or a social media presence. The impact of digitalization on production, logistics and sales processes is much greater. As a global provider of performance fluids in various industries, MOTOREX also has to adapt to changing customer needs. Digitalization plays an important role here, but we take special care to ensure it isn’t at the expense of customer proximity, advice and service. This is entirely the thinking behind the new MOTOREX customer platform, which is intended as an additional service for our customers and not as a substitute for personal advice. At MOTOREX we rely consistently on team performance – including in the “man and machine” constellation. Thanks to digital progress, we can now serve you faster and better than we could a few years ago. However, technical support and customized advice are still key. Moving with the times doesn’t automatically mean distancing ourselves from what is tried and tested. Healthy, sustainable development is often the result of an evolution rather than a revolution. And we have brought the same respect to bear in revamping our long-running MOTOREX Magazine. Be inspired and take part in the survey on page 30 so that we can continue to evolve in line with you – in both digital and analog terms.
