The automotive aftermarket is the largest, most fragmented and most complex of all aftermarket industry sectors. New technologies, customer diversification, more vehicle types and shorter development cycles increases aftermarket complexity, service diversity and global support costs. Today’s automotive leaders face a growing challenge to stay on top.
In the servitised economy, customers want guaranteed outcomes, capability and service performance, when and where they want it, without the burden of ownership such as capital expenditure, maintenance, downtime or obsolescence risks.
How well do you really understand your customer’s needs? Are your business model and aftermarket / aftersales capabilities up to the challenge or are you at risk of extinction?
It’s Time To Put Your Automotive Aftermarket First
Aftermarket / aftersales capability is the new battleground for automotive manufacturers.
You can’t run an aftermarket business with systems, processes and organisations that were designed and built for the last century. Product manufacturing businesses were never designed for aftermarket complexity, long-term relationship management or servitised business models.
Compared with manufacturing, the automotive aftermarket has 10x to 20x as many part numbers; much longer life-cycles; global warehousing and service networks; complex demand forecasting, inventory planning and logistics networks; many more pricing scenarios, etc.
In this environment, satisfying automotive aftermarket / aftersales customers who demand a more immediate, localised, personal service experience is challenging. It requires rethinking, reconfiguration and reintegration of business processes, systems, people and service partners across your global, end to end, aftermarket support chain.
