In the Industry, in an Equipment as a Service (EaaS) business model, the machine is provided by the manufacturing company with the addition of a series of digital services that can also be invoiced separately, generating new revenue.
Thus, the manufacturer is responsible for maintenance, service, consumables and spare parts, among other services. Even availability and production can be guaranteed.
For example, the user fee can be billed on a monthly basis or even on a "pay-per-use model", i.e. only according to the number of units actually produced. Manufacturing companies generate continuous revenue over the years and not just once when the machine is sold. Properly calculated, significantly more turnover and profit can be generated.
In addition, this business model also promotes customer loyalty as an important asset, as the business becomes recurring. This means that the manufacturer is always close to the customer and can better meet his needs.
Digital services for customers
Technological advances, such as IoT and Augmented Reality, enable machine builders to offer their customers value-added digital services that provide competitive advantages for both the supplier and the user. Offering these digital services allows them to:
- Improve customer experience and satisfaction.
- Generate new revenue based on long-term customer relationships
- Access new markets
