This typically includes market research, service strategy, customer experience, marketing, operations and launching of a new service. Thus the objective of this study is to assess the practice of new service development in Vintage Technology PLC. This research has been formulated by three leading research questions: How does the company develop new service? How effective is the newly launched service? How does the company promote its newly launched service? These issues have been described and assessed. Finally, based on the findings, some suggestions on how to improve the existing situation have been forwarded. This study was conducted using the case study method in the form of descriptive research. To carry out this study, both primary and secondary data have been used.
