Machinery and plant engineering companies need innovative business models to position themselves to the market as a full service provider in after sales. These new business models are needed in order to increase competitive capabilities. BearingPoint helps internal service departments as well as independent service providers with its unit service management for mechanical engineering companies on that way.
More and more smaller competitors are entering the market for after sales services in machinery and plant construction. These companies are usually smaller than the established players and share the advantage of being located close to their clients. Further, full service providers new to this market are now entering it and are offering comparable services. These new competitors and the associated challenges need to be faced in order to lead in this profitable service business area. BearingPoint supports you with these business activities to significantly increase your competitive capabilities.
