Imagine you run a café and one of your coffee machines is about to fail, but you have no idea. You get a call from your supplier who monitors the machines and informs you that not only is the machine at risk of imminent failure, but has been performing below-par for a few days. They offer to service the machine and you’re able to schedule a service call on the spot, within a 2 hour window of your choosing. A day before, you receive an SMS reminding you of the service call. On the day, you receive another SMS when the technician is on their way. On arrival, the technician has all the details and spare parts they need, performs the service quickly and even has time to demonstrate optimal configuration of the machine to prolong its life. You electronically sign off the work, and receive an invoice via email by COB that day.
