Post-Sales Support & Strategy

HomeSupply Chain Consulting 〉Supply Chain Operations 〉Post-Sales Support & Strategy

Many organizations find themselves focused on product sales, often overlooking the high costs associated with the post-sales support of those products – i.e. returns, repairs and warranty operations. Evaluation of post-sales strategies – such as the decision to insource or outsource return or repair operations – enables an organization to improve customer service levels while reducing logistics costs. The end goal is to optimize processes in returns, repair and warranty operations to mitigate costs in the reverse logistics supply chain and improve customer service performance.
