What is Value Added?
Value added can be defined generally as the increased utility that a company creates for its consumers or clients. More specifically, it refers to the extra features a company may add to a product or service to give it a sense of increased value to customers or clients. This may include either changing the product design or providing extra accompaniments primarily to increase consumer perceived value.
