Pay-per-Use based
Maintenance Contracts

Equipment buyers (operator) signing 8-times more often full-service contracts, if the maintenance fees are based on actual usage, which increases the after-sales revenues of the equipment builder (OEM). The equipment user profits from high class service, which leads to a higher OEE!

The Problem 

Equipment builders (OEMs) often struggle to meet their after-sales revenue targets because their customers:


  • have no significant incentives to purchase these services directly from the OEM

  • can often purchase spare parts, maintenance services and other consumables less expensive from a third-party supplier.


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

It shows that in many industries only 1 in 10 contracts includes a full-service agreement

The Solution

Together with linx4, equipment builders (OEM) are able to offer Pay-per-Use based maintenance contracts, which allow:


  • the equipment buyer (operator) to pay only for the maintenance they really need

  • the OEMs to increase their after-sales revenue significantly with very limited risk

Full-service contracts are signed 8-times more often, if the maintenance fees are based on actual usage in combination with Pay-per-Use financing!

The Process


  • The OEM receives the purchase price of the equipment and an option to conclude a full-service agreement from linx4 

  • The operator pays maintenance and financing costs based on the actual utilization

  • The maintenance fees can be
    pre-financed by linx4

  • The OEM executes the maintenances and receiveson-going sustainable maintenance revenues
