Share to

In dealing with warranty packages, organizations around the globe are known to suffer leakage, of thousands of dollars, due to unoptimized claim-processing loopholes. It is advisable to improve how you administer and track all your warranty claims holistically, leaving zero room for false claims. To be able to improve profits, a closed-loop warranty system is necessary.

Customer satisfaction is the key. Every organization strives for it in innovative ways. But the best hassle-free claim processing experience customers can get when you have a robust warranty-operations controlling system.

Rules-based technology

Most of the time, organizations tend to bleed valuable revenue through fraudulent claims, as they have limited control over warranty operations with rigid and worn-out systems. Therefore, it is advisable to implement IT for it to function according to business rules and organization policies accurately. A typical claim process starts from submission, pre-approval, claim evaluation, final approval, and disbursement. The entire cycle needs to be automated along with the incorporation of an EWS (early warning system) to capture real-time cost drivers.

Field-asset tracking and management

As business dynamics have grown complex, organizations need a system to facilitate field-asset tracking and management better. It is the most important part of warranty management, as it keeps account of the replaceable parts at any given point of time. That, in turn, helps the organization to make provisions in the accounting books to allocate funds and other resources optimally.

Orchestration with real-time data

For businesses to reap maximum benefit from warranty software, they need to implement a technology which perfectly syncs dealers, service centers, suppliers, service providers, and of course, the OEM itself. Orchestration of the sort makes it possible to share real-time data on business activities across global locations and assess the associated warranty liabilities.

An integrated data-driven workflow is essential to limit warranty spend and enhance customer satisfaction. A cut in the warranty spend, in turn, can release more funds, which a smart organization may use to improve product quality through investments in expertise and state-of-the-art R&D facilities.

Final thoughts

Organizations can use automated analytics and reports to re-evaluate their spend analytics from time to time. It will help them create room for extra savings. After all, the ability to improve aftermarket services in the manufacturing sector depends on how well you optimize other costs. Claim processing itself can be cumbersome and incur massive overheads, with tons of unmanageable paperwork and countless phone calls. Such processes are nothing but revenue killers, which can be streamlined to help focus on productive operations. It is important to stop possessing expensive workforce and spend less time on processes—an attainable goal for manufacturers, which is fast becoming a necessity at all altitudes of the industry.
