Customer demands and expectations are on the rise. How to get to the benefits of connected services?

01 feb, 2023

Most companies are aware of the potential benefits of connected services. They boost uptime, enhance efficiency, and improve resiliency. And think of optimizing service operations, more first-time-fix, enabling predictive maintenance, improving customer satisfaction and not to forget decreasing operational costs.

However, integrating connected services can be complex. Common challenges twe see at our customers are for example:

  • Integrating disconnected legacy products and systems
  • Eliminating data silos
  • Balancing workforce bandwidth with the need for analyses and insights
  • Finding the right technology to introduce new process improvements

With connected services in Dynamics 365 companies for example:

  • Generate new income from services enabled through connected products
  • Provide predictive maintenance that increases uptime for products and saves costs associated with parts and labor
  • Obtain new data that easily integrates with relevant systems and apps
  • Optimize your supply chain to ensure your field technicians have the right parts based on the repairs they’re making
  • Complete repairs/maintenance on the first visit with the right parts and the right technician who knows how to do the repair
