Why do B2B companies struggle to deliver on SLAs?


Meeting Service Level Agreements (SLAs) in B2B organizations can be difficult for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Complex products or services: B2B companies often offer complex products or services that require specialized knowledge or expertise to maintain or repair. This can make it difficult to meet SLAs for repair or maintenance times.
  • Long sales cycles: The B2B sales cycle is often longer than the B2C sales cycle. This can lead to delays in the delivery of products or services and can make it difficult to meet SLAs.
  • Limited resources: B2B companies may have limited resources to devote to meeting SLAs, such as hiring additional staff or investing in new equipment.
  • Lack of standardization: Different customers may have different expectations for service and support, which can make it difficult to standardize SLAs across all customers.
  • Dependence on third-party vendors: B2B companies may rely on third-party vendors to provide certain products or services, which can make it difficult to control and meet SLAs.
  • Limited visibility: B2B companies may have limited visibility into the performance of their products or services after they are delivered to the customer, which can make it difficult to identify and address issues that are impacting SLA performance.
