Drivers for Growth in Service

Drivers for Growth in Service

This spring, Noventum in collaboration with Microsoft and IT solution provider HSO, researched the drivers for digital services business growth of product manufacturers and technical services companies operating in a data-driven and services-led world. Research participants came from a wide range of industries, and input was collected via in-depth personal interviews and an online electronic survey.

Over the past decade, there has been a large shift in contribution to revenue amongst manufacturing companies, namely from product derived revenues to service derived revenues, aptly known as the servitization trend. Simultaneously, their customers are looking for suppliers to provide more than just products and maintenance services. Customers are moving from large capital investments in products, to pay per use models, with high expectations of service and impact on their business outcomes. This research project was aimed at learning more about how companies grow and prosper in today’s services-led world.
