Soft costumisation describes an individualisation of products that does not require intervention in the manufacturing process. Soft" individualisation takes place, for example, in the design of packaging according to customer wishes, but the service offer of customised services also falls under the term soft costumisation.
Soft costumisation pursues the goal of customer loyalty and helps to achieve unique selling propositions with relatively few resources, which can become competitive advantages.
Determining a pre-selection
Deciding on a pre-selection for soft costumisation benefits both the client and the provider. The customer is not overburdened in his freedom of design, while the provider only has to adjust to a defined spectrum.
Adaptation of internal processes
Offering soft costumisation solutions requires the adjustment of internal processes. This decision should therefore be thoroughly thought through in advance in order to rule out possible disruptions in advance.
