Manufacturers around the world have a major impact on the global economy, with the manufacturing sector contributing £6.7 trillion. As a result, these companies are constantly looking for ways to improve, compete and positively impact their industries. A growing number of UK manufacturers are optimising their after-sale businesses to deliver superior customer experiences while reducing cost and improving profits.
STLN Founder and Chairman, Henry Anson commented: We established this platform for manufacturers to discuss and learn about the key issues shaping the future of the industry.
Specifically, we aim to demonstrate how aftersales serviceâservice delivered after the sale of a new productâcan allow manufacturers to achieve differentiation and greater profitability. We are delighted to partner with Syncron, who will contribute extensive expertise in the key areas of service parts management and pricing, which are both critical to delivering world class service.
