The rise of the IoT may lead to huge changes in every element of interaction with customers, from warranties to service contracts to what you can learn for predictive selling. Design Thinking helps in defining customer’s life cycle with the company, from initial contact, through sales, to post-sales service and hopefully recommendations to others.
