Original equipment manufacturing industry challenges

The growth of services

With advancement comes complexity. As equipment becomes commoditized, manufacturers must focus on delivering superior customer support as a point of differentiation.

Increase visibility into equipment data

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) typically lack visibility into how their customer’s equipment operates once it reaches the field.

Improve after-sales productivity

Customers are challenged with effectively articulating equipment issues at times, making it difficult to dispatch a technician with the right expertise and the right parts to fix the job.

Accelerate the product design cycle

New product development can be daunting because it’s often hard to know how products are being used in the field, and if the design of the product actually matches its real-world usage.
