Despite the continued economic downturn, Aero Products Component Services, Inc. decided to meet the challenge head on by combining capital investments and customer journey mapping to enrich their customerâ€™s experience.
â€œIt makes sense to acknowledge the current economic situationâ€, said Ted Johnson, President of Aero Products. “We understand that times are tough and people are trying to be smarter with their money. Thatâ€™s why we pulled out all the stops and recently invested more than a million dollars in customer support inventory and equipment, customer relationship building, personnel and training. We consider our customers clients as our clients. Therefore our mission, quite simply, is to provide our customers with a buying experience that is quick, productive, hassle-free and cost saving as possibleâ€.
Among the capital investments made at Aero Products, the new exchange program is unlike anything ever offered in the past. It not only showcases an increased broad selection of traditional dynamic drive-train components, but now includes a premier listing of additional transmission exchanges/rentals for Bell Helicopter models: 206B,L; 212; 412; and UH-1H II.
â€œTo optimize the Operator’s spare parts investments in the Bell Helicopter product family, we developed our new Exchange Program fully dedicated to not only offering our customers a less expensive alternative to purchasing new parts, but also provide an immediate replacement for those components that require major overhaul or repair, said Jeff Winn, V.P. Component Service Division. This fulfills a promise we made to our customers to continue to expand our component exchange and rental offeringsâ€.
In addition to Aero Products capital investments which provide for increased product availability, Aero Products has also invested in an innovative process known as Customer Journey Mapping. â€œService is not a cost, it is an investment. It continues to be the growth engine for our company, said Brad Martin, Director of Marketing. â€œTherefore, we created the Aero AssuranceTM Program to help us step into our customer shoes and follow their journey as they interact with our company. This approach allows us to gain a deeper insight into each customerâ€™s perception, needs and motivation so that we can further improve our service and eliminate the normal frustrations associated with a typical buying experienceâ€.
