For Consumer services companies to attract today’s consumers, it’s not just about offering services, as usual, it’s more and more about diversifying the offer, discover new markets and meet up to new customer needs. With internet commerce, innovation becomes an even greater challenge as companies need to select and execute the right ideas and bring them to market before their competition. To tackle the challenge to reach consumers and provide the ultimate offering, the Consumer Services companies need to develop and manage a flexible and customized assortment/offering.
Even though the product development process is different in the consumer services segment compared to the product development of physical products, the usage of a PLM system is highly relevant. To be able to manage idea planning requirements in one common system from idea to finished product is crucial. Products within the Consumer Services segment often have a challenging life cycle and frequent adjustments often occur even after launch. Using a PLM solution might not be the obvious choice for most retail companies, but with huge success in many industries around the world, PLM is a great tool for companies who want to grow and increase sales.
