They are taking the support of Artificial Intelligence software to identify the scope of improvements and gaps. Automation can be applied anywhere and everywhere in a business model. Manufacturers are more likely to use the data gathered by Artificial Intelligence to analyze them and apply them to their new product designs. The industrial data assets of the manufacturers enable them to reduce design costs, improve adoption and customer value, streamline innovation, and provide better customer service.
How to Transition to Product Servitization and Transform your Business?
Businesses are shifting from a product-centric business model to a service-centric business model. This model is new and growing in the business market where manufacturers are prioritizing customer service along with a new and improved line up of products. The customer mindset and desire have experienced huge shifts during the pandemic. Customers expect the best service and products, and at the same time, they expect businesses to provide them diligently. Manufacturers are taking responsibility and absorbing the cost of poor service and poor quality of products. Hence, manufacturers are expected to access feedback and data from customers, and then act quickly as it can greatly impact the profitability of any business.
Businesses are collecting and storing large volumes of information from their customers. They are trying to understand how their products perform, which products and services are working and which are not, and how satisfied their customers are with the products and services. This wealth of data is converted by manufacturers into actionable intelligence, helping to make the service-centric business model a functional and effective reality.
How to survive in a circular reality?
The pandemic impacted consumer consumption and now customers are becoming increasingly sustainability-focused. Customers expect a longer lifecycle of products to prevent them from making unnecessary purchases and investments. Every day more and more customers are choosing businesses that practice sustainability by manufacturing long-lasting products. They are actively looking up information on the carbon footprint of manufacturers, and choosing the ones that are better for the environment. Hence, businesses face mounting pressures to prioritize and document their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance, and make the information accessible to the customers. This will directly impact the cost of raw materials and production costs of manufacturing businesses. Environmental regulations, government mandates, and climate change advocates continue to put pressure on businesses to avoid waste and unnecessary use of resources.

Businesses with service-centric business models and digital business models are more likely to increase product life cycles and holistically operate while positively impacting our environment.
The business scenario is going through major transformations and shifts. Businesses that are leveraging their industrial data through digitalization are giving themselves a competitive advantage compared to their competition in the industry.
