One of the challenges faced by aircraft manufacturers is to meet delivery times for orders placed by airline companies. Another challenge is to optimise the rate of availability for aircraft in operation and provide innovative and diversified services to both companies and their customers. Customer Support is a key lever when it comes to harnessing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Revolutionising services in the field of Aerospace and Defence
75% of aerospace and defence executives interviewed as part of an international study* think that the competitiveness of customer service will become “critical” in the coming years. However, only 53% say they have developed a dedicated Customer Support strategy, and 85 % agree that progress is needed in this area. The development of a culture of service within their company will, for one half of respondents, present the main challenge in achieving their goals in this area.
