Improve user satisfaction
Through a viable global maintenance service




THE Challenge
Envision a viable maintenance service solution that can be implemented by VanMoof, e-bike producer, to serve all customers despite their physical location.

VanMoof has the ambition to get the next billion of users on e-bikes. They sell globally, however their maintenance service leaves unserved 25% of their total market

The new e-bikes lines are often delivered defected to the customer or they break just shortly after. The brand's tailor-made designs make maintenance undemocratic.

Customer reviews dropped from excellent to average in the last 2 years. E-bikes manufacturing quality and after-sales service are the 2 main reasons behind the drop.

An Uber-like e-bike doctors maintenance service was designed to serve VanMoof's customers in the "isolated" 25% of their market.

It was assessed as the most viable solution considering the problem urgency, the brand's internal capabilities and total value of the different business models for both customers and the company.

An experiment was proposed to validate the most critical factor of the model: customers' and doctors' desirability.
