Traditionally, manufacturers focused primarily on the production phase of their machines. Once the equipment left the factory, the responsibility of maintenance and performance optimization often fell into the hands of the end-users. However, this approach is no longer sustainable in an era where downtime is costly, and customers demand continuous uptime and efficiency.
Digitally enabled asset lifecycle solutions bring manufacturers into the post-sale phase of their products, ensuring ongoing value and customer satisfaction. This shift involves adopting digital technologies and data-driven strategies to monitor, maintain, and optimize equipment throughout its lifespan.
Building Customer Loyalty
In the ever-evolving landscape of manufacturing, customer loyalty has become paramount. To maintain a competitive edge, machine manufacturers must adopt digitally enabled asset lifecycle solutions that offer end-to-end support throughout the equipment’s journey. Industrilty’s after-sales app platform is a game-changer in this arena, providing manufacturers with the tools needed to ensure customer satisfaction from the first moment of interaction to long after the equipment is delivered.
Equipment is getting smarter and more complex
The complexity of modern machinery, with its electrical, mechanical, and computerized chipsets, presents a unique challenge for manufacturers and service providers. This complexity makes it increasingly difficult for third-party vendors to service the equipment efficiently. Machine manufacturers are best equipped to understand the intricate details of their creations, and this expertise should be leveraged throughout the asset’s lifecycle.
Changing customer’s expectations
Learning from Apples and Teslas of the world, customer expectations are changing. Machine downtime can have a significant impact on operations and profitability and customers are expecting that Manufacturers can and should be not just provide warranty but also deliver uptime service levels.
