Product as a Service

Transform your manufacturing company’s selling model and discover new revenue-generating opportunities with end-to-end solutions and support.

Are You Ready for the Future of Manufacturing?

The manufacturing industry is in the midst of a major shift from selling equipment as a capital expenditure to an ongoing expense model with value-added services built in. Known as Product as a Service (PaaS), or Servitization, this model enables manufacturers to grow aftermarket value streams and capture revenue throughout the equipment lifecycle. Customers benefit, too — Product as a Service empowers them to buy only what they actually use and gives manufacturers access to usage data, which can be leveraged to optimize product performance and enhance the customer experience.

With Product as a Service, you can…

  • Adapt to changing buyer behavior by enabling your customers to buy only what they use
  • Boost profitability by selling aftermarket parts and service in addition to equipment
  • Gain insight into how customers use your products, thereby strengthening customer relationships and driving loyalty
  • Differentiate your brand on the strength of your combined customer and product experience
  • Leverage the latest technology, including IoT and advanced analytics, for predictive maintenance, product performance optimization, and more

The Building Blocks of Product as a Service

In order to convert to Product as a Service, your manufacturing company requires the right blend of solutions — including IoT technology, advanced data analytics, cloud computing, and AI — plus consultative support. With full command of the Microsoft stack, an embedded data science practice, and years of experience partnering with businesses in the manufacturing sector, Hitachi Solutions has the necessary tools to implement the underlying components essential to building a PaaS model. Not only that, we possess the knowledge and expertise to help guide you through your transformation into a world-class service organization.
