What is Business Model?

Business model converts innovation to economic value for the business.

Customer Focus

Exceptional customer service results in greater customer retention, which in turn results in higher profitability.

Sadly, mature companies often forget or forsake the thing that made them successful in the first place: a customer-centric business model.

 Case in Point  Xerox Corporation

Xerox Corporation's early days in the copy machine business with its Xerox Model 914 copier illustrate the importance of the business model. Xerox invented and innovative business mode and revenue model to bring its innovative product to market successfully. As a result, Xerox sustained a compound annual growth rate of 41% over a 12 year period. Without this business model, Xerox might not have been successful in commercializing the innovation.

It incorporates a collection of Fuji Xerox's digital printing systems to replicate various production applications, serves as a new business model, and acts as a collaboration space with outside business partners. The name, epicenter, conveys the tectonic change that the Company is offering through the new added values of digital printing, to cultivate the new publishing business era.
