Services growth strategy for a product oriented company

Since 1944, Hiab, the world’s leading provider of on-road load-handling equipment, has relied primarily on designing, manufacturing, and selling load-handling devices made from steel and hydraulics. This focus on traditional equipment sales has left service-related sales largely confined to spare parts. Hiab’s new strategy is to significantly grow the services part of the business by offering related intelligent services and digitally connected solutions.

This presentation will focus on the practical challenges facing organizations when working towards implementing a services growth strategy, including:

– Breaking down the potential growth areas
– How to find services potential from equipment in use the field
– Challenges with many data systems and data quality
– Changing the mindset of the sales organization

Online / offline dealer support challenges

The sales process of configurable products is complex, and often intermediated by a network of distributors. Add to this limited network connectivity, and the challenges of providing real-time, accurate product data anytime, anywhere increase dramatically.

Using Configit’s patented VT technology, Coolshop has created a robust application for users to configure, price, and quote on-the-go, regardless of platform.

Working with industry leaders including Columbus McKinnon and CNH Industrial, Coolshop has combined front-end and back-end capabilities into one single application covering the entire sales process.
