Webinar - How Powerful 3PL Enabled Servitisation has been Delivering Incredible Results for OEMs, 3PLs and their CustomersBook Now
Start Date:03/04/2017 14:00
End Date:03/04/2017 15:00
Event Code:WR0362

 When: 3 April 2017, 2pm

 Speaker: Adrian Botham, Director at Servispart Consulting

The inaugural event from the new S&OP, Service and Servitisation Forum

We know servitisation can be a transformational game changer for manufacturers looking to increase growth, improve competitiveness and increase customer retention, but what about their customers and industry partners? What are the opportunities for them, if any?

Servitisation is often described by academics as a long, complicated process but it doesn’t have to be that way. Some manufacturers are accelerating their service transformation process and creating more value for their customers via the use of innovative 3PL partnering.

One of the UK’s leading servitisation and aftermarket specialists, Adrian Botham, will present, discuss and explore a real-life practical example of how partnering with a 3PL enabled an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to access new business opportunities with dramatic benefits for its customer too.

The webinar will be held on 3 April 2017, from 14:00 and consist of a 30-40 minute presentation to allow time for questions. Those who register and fail to attend will still be able to access a recording of the webinar for a short time afterwards but will obviously lose the opportunity to ask questions during the live webinar. We therefore encourage all registrants to attend live.
