In this article, let us focus on the Customer Solutions Ecosystem.
The Customer Solutions Ecosystem
The Customer Solutions Ecosystem is the Service Value Layer Business Model. It includes distinctive products and services that companies can best offer to customers. To create additional value, the Customer Solutions Ecosystem integrated external entities.
A cutting-edge Customer Solutions Ecosystem serves clients with complete digital product and service solutions. An established partner network provides the fundamental framework.
Customer value is generated when individualized offerings and multi-channel customer interactions are integrated in the Customer Solutions Ecosystem. When this happens, solution offerings are continuously strengthened and enhanced.
The Role of Digital Leaders
Digital Leaders play a vital role in building up Customer Solutions offerings. They are in the best position to continuously strengthen and enhance Customer Solutions offerings. They have a good understanding of the needs and preferences of their customers and transform these relevant demand signals into new customer insights.
Digital Leaders can strategically position their Customer Solutions Ecosystems to enhance global competencies and market position. Apple and GE was more for joint venture to improve mobility. Ford preferred to establish the organization at the core of the Customer Solutions Ecosystem with collaborative communication among members.
Either way, these Digital Leaders recognize the importance of effectively establishing a Customer Solutions Ecosystem.
