Hello RIEPE - Welcome to ServiceBoard!

ServiceBoard - The ecosystem product gains another valuable partner in spray systems manufacturer RIEPE

The machine stands still, a cryptic error message appears on the display, and the customer waits for their order. In moments like these, one thing counts above all: speed. Many manufacturers offer their own customer portals that enable contact with the service department. This approach is undoubtedly practical, but by no means groundbreaking new. Although there is a central point of contact for all concerns, it is only for products from a specific manufacturer. In reality, for customers with an increasingly heterogeneous product landscape, this inevitably means numerous logins, URLs, apps and a multitude of different processes. Digital products are undoubtedly progressive, but who can keep track of everything? In the end, the only option is often to pick up the phone.

In an ideal world, things would be different. What if customers in the wood industry had a central point of contact for service cases, a login that they could use to send any problem with a machine, component or material directly to the relevant manufacturer? This is precisely the vision that ServiceBoard is pursuing. In an increasingly complex digital world, we endeavor to offer customers in the wood industry simple and, above all, manufacturer-independent solutions.

New partner on the ServiceBoard

Over the past few months, we have come a step closer to this goal and can proudly announce that we have a new partner on the ServiceBoard! RIEPE is a manufacturer of electronic spraying systems and the associated chemical products. Through many years of research and development, RIEPE has perfected edge processing in Finish Quality. Above all, however, RIEPE has recognized that pure diversification through excellent products and quality is no longer enough. Service and customer-orientation are therefore top priorities for the family business.
