Managing an effective pre and post sales customer service solution is one of the biggest challenges facing manufacturers of technical equipment. The challenge is particularly sharply focused in the customer engagement sector; when equipment is customer facing any downtime will directly impact customer experience.

To get service right, one solution considered by manufactures might be to invest in in-house capability such as helpdesk staff, customer service specialists and service engineers. This can be costly, stretch existing resources and divert business focus away from core activities.

An alternative solution could be to consider outsourcing all or part of the service function. Many manufacturers are reluctant to place their trust in an outsourced service provider but there are many advantages to doing so:

- Flexible resources

- National Coverage

- High Service Standards

- Cost-effective service
