The Copperberg flagship platform – where it all started.

Since it all started in 2009, we have spent over a decade convening Service Leaders from across Europe to explore the evolution of service operations. In today’s landscape, service plays a pivotal role in the product life cycle and customer satisfaction initiatives of manufacturers, proving to be a lucrative venture.

The integration of connected machinery not only enables us to anticipate and forecast maintenance tasks, but it also provides valuable insights into our installed base. However, we find ourselves at a juncture where bridging the gap between the old and the new is imperative. This heightened need underscores the importance of an adaptable strategy, agility, and the ability to leverage data promptly to minimize customer downtime.

Achieving harmony among technology, personnel, and processes is no small feat. This is why, at the aftermarket business platform, we delve deeper into the actions service leaders can take to optimize their service businesses. We explore how to harness the data offered by current technology, analyze it, adapt to it, and seamlessly integrate it into our organizations to continually enhance service operations and bolster profitability.

Navigating this landscape requires a thoughtful and strategic approach. Share with us your insights on how you leverage data to create a reliable and lucrative aftermarket.

E-Commerce

The latest addition to the Copperberg topic portfolio is the e-Connect event, centering on e-commerce for B2B manufacturers. Expanding our scope to include e-commerce was a logical progression, given its integral role in the commercial strategy of many manufacturers. The recent shift towards digitalization and connected machinery in the past few years necessitates a more transparent business model, allowing customers to easily access information online and, as a result, boosting the significance of e-commerce strategy.

E-commerce serves as the primary point of contact with customers worldwide, eliminating some costly intermediate steps and streamlining the supply chain. Consequently, this year, our focus revolves around establishing an e-commerce platform that aligns perfectly with the needs of both customers and dealers.

As manufacturers, we ponder whether financial transactions are the sole focus, or if the real value lies in the knowledge we provide to our customers. How can we shape our business model to support the e-commerce strategy, and vice versa, in order to meet and exceed customer expectations?

Secure your seat at the table and participate in one of the most expansive areas of investment for the industry at present!

Spare Parts

2024 marks the 12th edition of Copperberg’s Spare Parts Business Platform, establishing it as the singular meeting point for the spare parts community in Europe, boasting a decade of experience.

In the ever-evolving landscape of spare parts, creating genuine profitability is a paramount challenge. Crafting a pricing and sales strategy that aligns seamlessly with broader objectives is essential. For those navigating distributor networks, the question arises: How do you sell spare parts in a manner that continues to contribute significantly to your bottom line?

As we approach the 12th edition, it’s crucial to acknowledge the emerging trends within spare parts, particularly in transactional sales and embedded value. These two facets represent critical areas within spare parts, constituting a substantial portion of profitability. Interestingly, this segment needs to thrive even as the spare parts market is projected to decrease in size due to factors such as electrification.

Building resilience has taken center stage, given the potential for disruption from macro-environmental changes. Insights derived from data, end-to-end visibility of the supply chain, real-time decision-making based on inventory, and transparency of the installed base have become imperative.

These critical aspects, along with more, will be thoroughly explored in our annual meet-ups, both in person and virtually. Join the most crucial parts community this year as we navigate the challenges and opportunities within the spare parts industry.
