Do you think of your spares business as an Outsourced Parts Manager or Practical Spare Part Management System Solution for your clients?
Parts management is a critical role in the majority of manufacturing operations for commercial vehicles. From how inventory is controlled to how it's sourced and included in the production process of manufacturing a final truck, trailer or construction machine.
Any company that is involved in supplying spare parts to the commercial vehicle industry needs to become part of their customers’ spare part management systems solutions.
Whether locally manufactured or imported, spare parts suppliers play a critical role in the value chain from a reliability and product-delivery perspective.
To be successful, commercial vehicle spares suppliers have to ensure they always try their best to deliver on the following critical elements.
Being able to deliver on the above will always go a long way in fostering good business relations in the commercial vehicle market.
When it comes to marketing your spares products, you have to build a value proposition that is based on business strength. Your story needs to be a promise that you know you can deliver on. Be it only one of the above points or all four, your brand is only as strong as the products and services you offer. Once you have a story, you need to tell it.
Finding creative ways to get your brand message recognised is one way. Another is to get your message in front of as many potential clients as possible.
The proof is always in the pudding. Don't take on work you know you can’t manage because once you have disappointed a customer, it is very hard to get them back. Playing open cards will always mean the door is open for another opportunity should the need arise later on. Make sure that you keep your commercial vehicle customers informed so that they can manage the expectations of their customers.
