[Metaal Connect #6] Digitizing: Join or Disengage? – with Gertjan van den Brink

This week at Metaal Connect, we had an inspiring conversation with Gertjan van den Brink (ECI Software Solutions) about the differences and similarities between project-driven and customer order-driven companies, the need for digitization and how to get started.

As a sales consultant with years of experience and a background in psychology, Gertjan managed to enthuse me quite a bit with his positive answers and I hope he can do the same for you.
