      Benchmarking and Best Practices
      to Optimize Warranty Management

      The global marketplace is rapidly changing towards customer-centricity, and businesses must evolve to differentiate their service experience and thrive in a global ecosystem. Post-sale services, including warranty management, have always been a critical interaction point with customers. These interactions have primarily been perceived as a cost center by many manufacturers.

      In this workshop, you will be able to benchmark with other global manufacturers and identify the best practices to help your organization shift your warranty management business towards a customer-focused, cost-reducing model while optimizing your internal processes to better adapt to the ever-demanding, ever-evolving customer and service landscape.

      Mike Roberts and Mike Stroffolino bring decades of experience in implementing warranty management solutions. They will guide the workshop to help you optimize your warranty management and maximize your service profitability.

      Key Takeaways

      Build your own gap analysis and business case model with a benchmarking workbook to put your warranty group on the path to warranty management optimization.
      Participate in a detailed discussion and review of successful real-world warranty process transformation examples.
