Growing profits from service and parts management
A Global Manufacturing industry group survey from Deloitte
Service and Parts Management is often overlooked as a key profit driver. It is a high impact area that in many cases suffers from underinvestment, limited resources and weak or disparate information systems. Although difficult to manage due to volatile demand and high customer expectations, when managed effectively the rewards are significant. An effective and efficient Service and Parts Management operation can increase margins — often driving profits well beyond the original product, while cutting costs and improving customer service.
