Why does service productivity need to increase? 

Both the shortage of skilled workers and various economic challenges are forcing service professionals to work at the limits of their capacity – and to change.

Skilled workers are hard to find, while existing teams have to work through ever more tasks in less time. In order to remain effective and competitive, service teams should therefore find answers to the following questions as quickly as possible: 


  • Experienced service technicians are retiring – how do we preserve their knowledge
  • Service call-outs take too long – how do we achieve greater efficiency and avoid expensive incorrect orders? 
  • The first time fix rate is too low – how do we improve the quality of the service call-outs? 
  • The pressure to digitalize is growing – how do we digitalize and optimize our processes? 
  • Our customers’ demands are increasing – how do we still offer them excellent service?  
  • Customers expect short downtimes – how can we respond more quickly to inquiries and complete jobs more efficiently?  


Service managers need to solve all of these challenges. The biggest lever for this is increasing service productivity. But the resources and financial means for the necessary improvements are limited.

The basis for more service efficiency: a digital information platform 

The way to improved service productivity with the same number of team members is through digital platforms. They simplify existing processes by providing support and service employees with all the information they need to achieve excellent results.

With a digital service platform which, for example, offers intuitive step-by-step instructions, your service employees can fulfill more customer requests in the same amount of time and significantly increase their productivity – as well as customer satisfaction.

Modern service teams in machinery and plant construction rely on digital information twins for this. A digital information twin (DIT):

  • Serves as a central platform for technical information and service information about a product, machine, or plant  
  • Bundles and synchronizes data and therefore creates an integrated information management system that fulfills different functions 
  • Saves service engineers, service technicians, maintenance staff, and other DIT users the hassle of searching for spare parts information and maintenance instructions. Instead, all information for their maintenance tasks can be accessed quickly and digitally via an intuitive user interface 
  • Speeds up service call-outs and ensures that more call-outs per week can be carried out 
  • Is the basis for trends such as predictive maintenance 

The six biggest DIT advantages for your service team 

A DIT supports your service teams with various functions and gives the service experts more time to help your customers achieve better results with first-class service: 


Forward planning of service capacities thanks to remote maintenance and predictive maintenance


Greater overview in the service department for precisely planned maintenance and servicing


24/7 remote monitoring of machines and plants

Cost savings

Lower maintenance and travel costs for service personnel 


Machines and plants can be put back into service quicker, unscheduled downtimes are reduced 


Fewer necessary repairs and more time for new jobs 

A DIT increases the service excellence of your company and your team is able to play an even greater part in achieving the company’s goals.
