Increase operational efficiency

The meaning of operational efficiency has changed dramatically within recent decades. Even 20 years it actually meant “increasing the net profit”, whereas today it often means “surviving”. Whatever you produce, material products, information or service, you always have competitors ready to suggest the same things to your customers for the lower price.

 

Artificial intelligence, big data, robots and automated warehouses and self-service stores which seemed so fantastic several years ago now are becoming a part of our everyday life and work. And the pace of changing is also growing every day. So a business doesn’t have just to create a value for the customer – it should do it effectively, which means quickly (or just in time), cheap and with the best quality at the same time.

 

Being efficient doesn’t mean just to improve some logistic processes or upgrade an IT system. One has to research every process alongside the “value delivery workflow” and to find the way to enhance every part of it. Moreover, one shouldn’t stop doing so even for a day. If it seems that your business-processes are next to excellent, it is high time to begin improving them again.

Enter new markets and launch new products

Sometimes any company, whatever successful it is, understands that it has reached the borders of it’s customary market. The company has already reached out all the customers – at least the important and lucrative ones, and it is high time to move further.

 

Sometimes is happens when the borders of the market, on the opposite, moves quickly towards you. It happens when your market shrinks because of any economical reason or when your product simply becomes outdated.

 

Whatever the reasons, you have to find a new market for your product. Or a new product for your market. Or a new product for a new market. Or everything mentioned simultaneously.

 

But entering a new market – launching a subsidiary in another country or simply exporting your goods abroad, trying to attract new social groups of customers, searching for new distribution channels, – may be rather risky. Especially if you have to modify your product at the same time.

 

KVAN Consulting helps make it easier.

 

We can:

 

– Provide a market research for your company. Is a new market really that attractive and perspective for you? What does your company need to enter it? We may collect information of that kind in the former USSR countries and Eastern Europe.

 

– Provide a customer research. What do new customers what from your product? What are their needs and expectations? What should you do (for instance, how should you modify your product or to promote it) to match them? To be successful on the new market?

 

– Provide a deep analysis of the strengths and the weaknesses of your company. Is your company ready for new challenges? What (and when) do you have to change in your business model, in your strategic approach, in your IT system, your business processes etc. to carry out your plans on entering new market?

 

We also may:

 

  1. Create a “road map” – a step-by-step plan on how to transform your business in order to meet new challenges.
  2. Establish a new business strategy, including vision, mission, objectives and elaborated plan on how to reach them.
