Develop your service offering with Service Management

Service management is going through a period of significant change in the digitalizing world. Service is an intangible product aiming at bringing utility and value to the customer. Like other products, also services must be managed throughout their lifecycle. Service Management as a managerial discipline focuses on customer and service but is also related to many other management fields.

The customer expects to benefit from the service you are offering. For the benefit to concretize, the service organization itself, processes and IT systems used in service production need to function as defined and agreed upon. This is called productization.

QPR’s comprehensive service offering helps you develop your organization’s service management processes to the level you expect them to be.
