Product manufacturers have long recognized that they and their sales organizations in the service sector have a role in the wake of the multi-channeling which network service providers need. The success of the service management concept is highly topical. The question of the secrets of success is as old as the history of the economy. The authors of this book report on relevant research studies, and the success of Münster Institute of Retail Management and Network Marketing in the areas of service and sales.
