The products and services provided in addition to the core product. For example, the supplier of a photocopying machine is required to provide a large amount of service alongside the product. This can be regarded as the part of the augmented product. These services include delivery, confirmation, advice, after-sales, and finance (hire purchase or leasing). Each of these can be a source of competitive advantage, and so it is important for senior managers to think not just in terms of the basic product but in terms of the total product offering.
