Workflow-on-device is of-value, and


the customers expert can easily make
workflows
Customers will pay for extended
warranties or warranty/service plans
that offer special features
Remote Collaboration is useful to
customers, or needs to be simplified to
the NSC model
Customers internal IT department is
sufficient GE does not need to offer
IT support
