In part 1 of this article, the challenges of warranty management were addressed. A seemingly simple system actually has many areas in which companies can possibly improve. Even small improvements in processes can increase customer satisfaction and revenue, ensuring repeat customers and continued business. Companies with suboptimal warranty management systems may have trouble in handling warranty claims internally, ensuring customer segmentation, providing acceptable benefits, satisfying customers, or mitigating fraud. They may also be spending too much on their systems or forgetting to use the systems for revenue. In terms of all the challenges posed by a warranty management system, SteamChain can be the solution. Any point at which a company can have difficulty, SteamChain can improve for the company's benefit.
