Technology Services Industry Association
When technology companies need to grow their revenue and profits, they come to TSIA. We provide our members with the relevant industry research, business frameworks, and benchmarking they need to optimize their service businesses, overcome top challenges, and achieve their goals. To share an example of what you can accomplish with a TSIA membership, here's a case study of how we helped one of our members within the industrial equipment industry improve customer adoption of their technology with their existing field services team.
The field service organization within this industrial equipment company was tasked with reducing costs and increasing services revenue. They often bundled in premium contracts at no incremental cost to capture product sale or install. They also struggled with their gross margin being off target by 30%, as well as a low services revenue growth at only 5%. Additionally, the company's field service utilization was at 62%, with this low customer density resulting in 1.3 hours of travel time per incident.
By becoming a TSIA member, they immediately gained access to hundreds of resources aimed at solving top field services issues and received a plan of action to overcome their specific challenges. Here are the TSIA resources and recommendations they used to achieve their objectives.
