Value-based service business development

Offering after-sales service is becoming an increasingly important source of revenue for product manufacturers. VTT helps to ensure that a customer value orientation is successfully adopted. We bring a new, customer-centric perspective on strategy and operations to clients interested in expanding the service business side of their manufacturing operations. We can help you to discover new income sources within existing customer services, as well as entirely new service concepts. VTT has a long history of developing industrial services with leading companies, ranging from business concept design to business process development and implementation.

Systemic development of service processes

The value in service processes is co-created by the supplier, the customer and the rest of the value chain. Hence, development of service processes needs to be systemic. It must take place in collaboration with the customer and involve an understanding of the customer’s business, processes and activities. VTT helps clients with service process development and implementation with the latest tools and methods.
