From Product to Total Solution: An Enriched Channel Perspective

In the last decade, a fundamental phenomenon came to the fore in the business environment: more and more companies are offering total solutions to their customer instead of standardized products or services.

This article develops propositions concerning the influence of a total solutions strategy on a company’s channel management, rooted on an extensive literature review and case-based research in the Belgian industrial market.
