How can manufacturing companies 'extend their enterprise' and outperform their competition through after-sales service excellence?
After-sales provides benefits in the form of recurring revenue streams, new sources of differentiation and a new counter force to commoditization in mature industries
Key challenges in after-sales service include value chain inefficiencies, weak after-sales strategy, and costly and inefficient execution
Formula for success includes designing the right portfolio of services, pricing the services optimally, effective contract management, well-orchestrated execution and governance
Manufacturing companies are slowly beginning to realize that their core business alone may not satisfy bottom-line expectations, and that the time has come to expand what has so far been perceived to be the core. Their focus has to now go beyond just the sale of products they manufacture to incorporate after-sales service as a core component of their business strategy. This calls for an extension of their business model, and a re-modeling of the corporate culture and approach.
