In B2B Service Business, SLAs play an integral part of the business. The clearer the individual needs of the customer, the better the value for money the service provider can deliver. At Landis+Gyr, we have been in the service business for over a decade. We have worked with over 30 managed metering reading service customers with different SLA levels in EMEA, each of them tailor-made and individually defined. Here we are sharing some of our learnings.
We have probably all been there: having to choose the right internet connection at home. For this, you need to make a decision on the required service level. To find out what that is, you speak to the service provider and they will be asking you things like: “How many devices do you want connected? Do you stream movies or games? Do you need your connection for working from home?” Based on your needs, you will receive an offer for a specific service for a specific price. Once you have placed your order, you have entered into a Service Level Agreement (SLA).
