B2BE’s Joe Pettit is featured in the autumn edition of the Wholesaler & Electrical Distributor (W&ED) magazine
The W&ED provides wholesalers and electrical distributors with essential business information and analyses the key issues facing the electrical wholesaling sector. Over the last three years, organisations everywhere saw a dramatic spike in the acceleration of digital transformation. This was the same for the electrical industry. In the height of the pandemic, the transition towards a successful digital transformation journey became the difference between survival and success. Digital transformation was shown to have the potential to improve processes for the electrical sector around data analytics, accounts receivable and invoice financing, and improving compatibility with potential government mandates.
In this article in the W&ED magazine, Joe highlights that within this potential, some business elements can function as severe obstacles in the digital transformation journey unless carefully addressed. These can be broadly categorised as systems, process, culture and supply chain.
Digital transformation in the electrical sector
Today, as organisations begin to head back to a state of ‘norm’ the ambition toward digital transformation has become stale. But in reality, the benefits of digital transformation can continue.

As Joe described in the feature, to succeed with digital transformation growth, start by focusing on the problem that needs solving before fixating on complicated solutions as an end in themselves. Only by focusing on the problems that need solving can we harness the best solution in the best way.
