Customer Use Case

A national restaurant chain had allowed local contractors to buy parts as needed. However, they realized this didn’t take advantage of their corporate spend or assure proper warranty processes, and led to excessive parts and supply markups. After deploying ServiceChannel Supply Manager, the chain could then leverage its own negotiated contracts for needed parts, resulting in cost savings, warranty improvement and greater TCO analysis for equipment.
