Innovation & new business models

New technologies in PTC are often centred around cost as ‘cost leadership’ strategies are most common in the professional textile care industry. Improving profit margins and increasing market share (geographically) by increasing scale of operations and competing with other industrial laundries. With new markets however, the applied technology is focusing on the optimization of the customer journey (add customer value) to justify the price for outsourcing.
