The basic idea is not a new one: regular payments for continuous access to a service have been around for a long time, e.g. as part of a newspaper subscription or a mobile phone contract.

But how can the manufacturing industry in particular succeed in transforming itself into a digital service or solution provider? How do companies move from a service level agreement to a successful subscription model?

Answers to these and many other questions will be the focus of the 23rd Aachen Service Forum on March 11 and 12, 2020. Under the motto "Subscription - from service level agreement to subscription model", the specialist event will discuss potentials, challenges and best practices in the development of digital subscription and as-a-service business models.

As part of the experience forums, participants will have the opportunity to engage interactively with the trending topic. In addition, experts from the field will provide a comprehensive overview of the topic in numerous specialist presentations.

The exhibitor forum offers participants information on the latest products and current trends for a successful subscription and service offering.
