AFTERMARKET SERVICES

 

AFTERMARKET & SERVICE MANAGEMENT


 

Companies experience decreased profit from traditional product sales and therefore aftermarket offerings and service sales are more important than ever to increase margins. With customers expecting high customization, availability and flexibility in their products - more advanced services and solutions are being offered. There are several steps to take to become an integrated solution provider where quality and secure processes in aftermarket sales are as important for some companies as shifting from product use to output focus are for others.

Triathlon has a long history of helping their customers to create profitable aftermarket businesses. We have repeatedly shown success in supporting customers in the creation and implementation of strategies for aftermarket and service offerings.

SERVITIZING BUSINESS MODELS

What do you sell? When taking the step into a service provider this is one of the key questions. Based on the answer, an applicable business model should be built. Triathlon holds expertise and experience from analyzing and developing service based business models.





TRANSFORMING THE ORGANIZATION

Traditional product sales require an organizational setting that is not optimal for service offerings. Triathlon helps your organization to eliminate silo thinking and work cross-functional to develop new processes, but also to identify internal benefits from service and solution sales.







WORKSHOP IMPROVEMENT

Dealers and workshops can both bring high value to a business and drive high costs, it can be a challenge to stay on the positive side. Triathlon supports with front-line transformations, sales concept integrations and on-site sales training, as well as performing workshop optimization assessments, lead time efficiency and improve first time fix rates.










CONNECTIVITY

Digitalization of businesses and enabling IoT technology is the basis for creating new and more advanced services. It is not the connected “Things” that are providing the value individually, it is the integration of a number of IoT into “Services” targeting a specific area that brings the value. Developing connected services often need to comply to European regulation about data privacy. Triathlon help their clients to create value from connected “Things” while managing regulations.









OWNERSHIP AND REGULATORY

When servitizing a business, the ownership structure can change radically. It is important for the organization to create structures enabling the value transactions. Robust agreements are needed to make sure that legal aspects are taken into consideration but also that financial flows are secured. It is also important  to develop accounting models and sufficient KPIs. Triathlon holds expertise about the needed structures and how to secure them.







PARTNER STRATEGY MANAGEMENT

Becoming an integrated solution provider comes with a need of broaden capabilities and new knowledge. To partner with external actors is a good strategy to gain new capabilities while keeping core strengths. Triathlon help you to build partner strategies, identify potential partners and secure a low level of vulnerability.
