Knowledge for the world of customer service & support
Warranty Management -
These are vendors that provide a service that is embedded in the life cycle of a warranty claim. In this edition, there are two broad categories of service providers: companies that provide warranty services on behalf of an OEM, and companies that provide warranty services on behalf of the customer. In both cases the services are deeply integrated into the Warranty value chain. A couple of vendors provide services to both OEM's and customers.
There also is a further sub-categorization where companies such as DeployNet and Arvato HighTech incorporate logistic services such as the receipt of defective returns and perform the initial fault analysis and warranty validation. While other companies such as Infosys BPO and AWN are only processing the warranty claim from a customer/dealer.
For some of these vendors such as Arvato HighTech warranty processing is a part of a larger set of services that address asset life cycle needs.
Each of these vendors is profiled on a separate page and the name of the vendor is a link to their profile page. Please note that all of the information provided is taken directly from the service provider's web site and whenever possible we have used the vendor's text from the web site to describe the services being offered.
In a future edition of the CSJ we will be providing more information based on deeper research and interviews with the vendors. If the reader knows of another vendor that should be included in the list, please send an email to Research@CSJournal.info.
