A proactive services strategy that can optimize and monetize your connected products.

is #Digitaligence at Work!

Manufacturers today operate in an increasingly complex environment marked by regional demand variability, global supply chain uncertainties and the constant pressure to outperform competition. Product sales alone do not deliver these results, and many manufacturers now turn to an otherwise underutilized after-sales area for revenues, customer satisfaction and profit growth.

As a recent McKinsey report across 30 industries suggests, the EBIT margin from services is 25% compared to the 10% achieved from equipment sales. Traditionally organizations have been more focused in areas related to design, manufacturing & quality to boost product sales, and after sales services to customers are often considered as an afterthought. As a result, organizations are unable to maximize opportunities for greater revenues and customer retention.

A service-centric approach will be a strategic differentiator and key to diversifying revenues and enhancing customer service experience for manufacturers.
