Implementation of an Equipment-as-a-Service model as an innovative business model in plant engineering.

The Context.

Equipment-as-a-Service (EaaS) is a modern business model that offers companies the use of equipment or machinery as a service, instead of purchasing or leasing them. Customers pay based on actual usage, which increases flexibility and cost efficiency. EaaS utilizes advanced technologies like IoT to monitor the usage and condition of the equipment, enabling preventive maintenance and efficiency optimization. This model promotes sustainable practices through efficient resource use and supports long-term customer relationships through continuous revenue for providers. EaaS reflects the trend towards servitization, focusing on integrated solutions that meet changing customer needs.

The Ask.

To meet the changing customer demands, our client sought innovative solutions tailored to the current market situations. A new range of products and services for the customers was to include not only the sale of equipment but also an extensive package of services. With this concept, the aim was to improve the relationship with the end-user of the equipment and to gain more insights into equipment usage through better data analysis.

The Approach.

In a first step, a market analysis was conducted to consider the current trends and characteristics of the industry in various geographic regions. This was followed by the development of an Equipment-as-a-Service (EaaS) model that was tailored for large-scale industrial installations. The components of financing, insurance, service, and spare parts were bundled into a comprehensive package. In close coordination with the client, we sought and selected strategic partners with a global presence to offer the bundled package worldwide. These partners had the necessary expertise to implement the financial and insurance elements of the model. After we had conceptualized and designed the EaaS model with the partners, including the necessary adaptations to IoT platforms and systems, the model was implemented with the first customers.

The Impact.

By introducing the “Equipment-as-a-Service” model, the client was able to further solidify their position as a market leader, drive innovation, and set new industry standards. Our client can offer their customers a new solution that allows them to acquire specialized machinery including a comprehensive “worry-free” service package in an “as-a-Service” model without upfront investment costs. Through the integration of financing and insurance via partners, various risks are taken on by third parties, eliminating the need for liquidity to finance the acquisition costs. Moreover, the establishment of strategic partnerships enabled global scalability, leading to revenue growth and market expansion.
