Products or services in the ResCoM pilot
Loewe is investigating a successor range to its Connect range with the support of ResCoM. Testing the idea of using the television as a ‘platform’ for providing the user experience. The maintenance and especially the upgrading of the user experience becomes the new product, offered via product features. The aim is to create a product with new levels of customisability.
Loewe is looking to integrate the outcomes of ResCoM into the business model and supply chain of the product line, adapting the design and materials used.
Motivations for being part of ResCoM
Loewe customers demand an efficient and reliable high-class service, which is prompting thought around alternative business approaches.
Loewe wants to explore the development of products for an extended life with the potential of upgrading their performance through software upgrades. As a result Loewe is looking for supporting business models and supply chain networks.
One of the largest challenges faced by Loewe is its position in the market as a premium brand label. Its products must therefore continue to offer the expected high quality through their new business models.
The rapid pace of innovation and changes in technology provide both opportunities and significant challenges for Loewe.
