Service Parts Management
As competition across the globe increases, the automotive industry suffers from lower sales profits. However, the after-sales business continues to be a critical driver of growth for automotive OEMs owing to the extended average period of ownership of vehicles and the recent increase in car sales volumes.
Over the years, many enterprises have overlooked the potential of after-sales to drive financial growth. Thus, these departments struggle with disparate and complex processes and systems that hinder margin maximization across the supply chain. By establishing the after-sales business as an entity separate from vehicle manufacturing with its own process execution entity, sales, operations, and supply chain planning processes, the industry can address the challenges of high part availability, increasing cost pressures and stagnant inventory.
