About the Product:
Complete Visibility & Control of Your Service Supply Chain
The service landscape is shifting. Customer demands continue to increase. It is no longer enough to just satisfy customers; instead we must learn ways to continuously delight our customers. More and more companies are coming to the realization that customer service is no longer just a cost of doing business but rather a great opportunity for revenue growth and competitive differentiation. In order to capitalize on this revenue generating opportunity, companies need to embrace and adopt a service lifecycle management strategy. Adopting Service Lifecycle Management means that companies need to begin looking at the service opportunity as a lifecycle rather than an event or even a series of discrete events. Companies need to shift from being reactive to being proactive and protective of the customer and leveraging customer information to look ahead and manage the customer.
Breaking Down the Barriers… A Fundamental Competitive Advantage
