Do you have parts smarts?
Abstract: Aftermarket parts and accessories and maintenance and repair are the bane of some manufacturers’ existences. For others, they’re one of the most lucrative aspects of their businesses. No matter where a manufacturer falls on the continuum, establishing a parts and service outsourcing agreement with an experienced partner can do wonders for the company’s operations and bottom line. In addition to eliminating the need for in-house aftermarket customer service, using a partner to warehouse and distribute inventory can allow reduction of warehouse personnel and logistics costs. It can also improve distribution speed and order accuracy.
