TSIA Issues New Report on Education Services Offer Development

Report shares best practices in offer development and provides insights regarding offer diversification

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - October 06, 2016) - The Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA), the leading association for today's technology services organizations, has issued a new report titled "Education Services Offer Development: Think Diversification," authored by Maria Manning-Chapman, TSIA's vice president of education services research. The report identifies best practices in offer development and how education organizations can diversify the education portfolio to help increase revenue and drive consumption/adoption.

Typically, the protocol for education services organizations has been to develop training when a new product is released and/or when a product undergoes a major revision. As education organizations begin to diverge from training offers that align directly with product, understanding the offer development process is critical. As might be expected, there is a correlation between offer diversification and revenue. While clearly there are any number of other variables that influence revenue, having more to offer and providing interesting packaging options is certainly a contributor.

"When thinking about offer development, think diversification. Give customers more to buy than just another course," says Manning-Chapman. "Offer diversification is fundamental to any business. It's the reason why some companies prosper and others do not."

TSIA members may access the report on the TSIA website.
