Service is a game changer

What’s considered field or customer service by technology service providers, might be part of operational maintenance for a manufacturing company. Observing the innovations in the service area helps to optimize internal processes for asset management and maintenance. In other words, the “customer” is the company’s own production site. That’s the case with Miba Group, a manufacturer of components for the energy value chain.


Innovation driver

While the product margins decreased over the last years, the service margins in industrial manufacturing are growing. Industrial manufacturing leaders are constantly seeking innovations to close the gap. Being open to feedback and prioritizing the needs of both customers and service technicians is key. In doing so, they’ll not only achieve Field Service Excellence but also ensure sustained growth and success in a rapidly evolving landscape. It is important to remember that while technology is critical, the human element remains central to field service.

In a nutshell

Everyone is aware: Customers don’t want to buy features and functions – they want results. This can be the customers of a machine manufacturer, but also their own production facility. Transaction data provides deeper insights into the equipment being serviced and how it is used, helping to achieve better results faster. To truly achieve Field Service Excellence as a business, a holistic approach is needed that encompasses technology, people and processes.
