Case Study 

Significant increases in after-sales revenues through the implementation of Pay-per-Use financing

„Increase maintenance revenues significantly“

The Problem 

A leading machine manufacturer repeatedly struggled to meet his after-sales revenue targets because its customers:


  • Had no significant incentives to purchase these services directly from the manufacturer

  • Spare parts, maintenance services, wear parts and other consumables have often been purchased from less expensive third-party suppliers


  • Were not able to obtain suitable financing for these services (traditional financing companies are not interested in financing these services)

Out of 10 machines sold, only 1 full-service maintenance contract was sold


The Solution

Together with linx4, the machine manufacturer offered Pay-per-Use financing, which enabled him to guarantee a predefined technical availability by concluding full-service maintenance contracts. The machine was financed by linx4, that also assumed the risk of breakdown.

The machine user thus benefited from:

  • Less downtime

  • More flexible payments

  • Outsourcing of utilization risk

The machine manufacturer thus benefited from:

  • Increased revenues in after-sales

  • Better understanding of machine usage and malfunction patterns

  • Additional data has been used as a basis for new business models such as predictive maintenance 


With linx4 Pay-per-Use Financial Services, each sale in equipment guaranteed an additional full-service maintenance contract
