Increasing market competitiveness by streamlining warranty chain processes

Spyware RSS Feed

Despite having made major breakthroughs in various operational areas, several service and warranty executives still wrestle with post-sales issues like controlling warranty costs. In an effort to transform their service organization, some companies usually end up increasing the warranty costs. Quite often, product companies face the following major challenges while dealing with warranty management:
Manipulated warranty claims
Suspected leakages in warranty related inventory
Lack of end-to-end visibility in warranty information

This may happen because managing warranty is an integrated process - like, product registration needs to be correct, claim validations have to be precise, only then all these aspects are taken care of, accurate warranty analysis is done. The current scenario has seen many companies focusing more on streamlining their after-sales business than it was seen a decade ago. The OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer), suppliers, and service & warranty executives have learned this lesson the hard way that not focusing on the warranty chain processes may dismantle the business bottom line. Their inconsistent focus on warranty & claim management and its subsequent glaring effects on the company’s financial performance was seen when they analyzed that they spent way too much in giving claims than was actually required.
