Strategic service management

Strategic service management (SSM) is a business strategy that aims to optimizes the services that a company provides, by synchronizing service parts and resources forecasting, service partners, workforce technicians, and service pricing. Benefits of strategic service management can include:[1]

  • Increased revenue through the servicing of manufactured products that may be experiencing decreased sales
  • Increased customer loyalty through improved post-sale service performance
  • Heightened asset accountability and tracking
  • Increased worker productivity
  • More knowledgeable workers to prevent common mistakes

Using strategic service management, Avaya reduced service parts inventory from $250 million to $160 million, Sun Microsystems saved $40 million in the first year, and Dell grew service revenues over 20% in one year.[2]
