More and more product builders are focusing on smart products and IoT. However, many companies still get stuck with their ideas in the many possibilities and uncertainties. To help companies do this, we are building support tools and guidance to get to a stronger, smart product idea faster. Find out more during a webinar on 7 February.

By adding digital services to a physical product - digital servitisation - you can build a long-term relationship with your customers and create value for your company and for your customers.

Digital servitisation is the enrichment of a physical product with digital services in order to offer more added value to your customers. In other words, you develop a smart product. For example, as a smartwatch manufacturer, you can offer your user a personalised training programme via an app that takes into account the user’s wishes, goals... and which he can then consult on his watch.

Smart connected products enable us to optimise operations & maintenance, ensure safety, reduce cost, make a more sustainable use of natural resources, etc. By design, smart connected products evolve more rapidly than their traditional counterparts. Your company too can benefit from the smartification of your product offer, with a little help from Sirris.

Companies that want to develop a smart product should have a realistic idea of the development and production cost when they draw up their business case and decide whether to move forward.

When developing smart product ideas, the technological side is often not the biggest problem; the main question is 'why?'. How can you put a smart product idea into practice and effectively offer added value to your customers?

Many companies struggle with drawing up a solid business case for their smart product. Developing a solution that responds to customers’ genuine need and that delivers sufficient value is far from easy. Especially if you want to keep the costs of developing and marketing your solution under control.

Technological product innovation can be a way of staying one step ahead of the competition. But only if it is based on a clear and well-considered vision. That vision does not necessarily have to lead to the development of smart products. But companies should not hesitate to ask themselves how smart products might transform their business and benefit their customers.
