3.1 SWOT Analysis
We are presently in a highly lucrative market in a rapidly growing economy. We foresee our strengths as the ability to respond timeously to the market dictates and to provide custom designed technological services. Our key personnel will have a wide and thorough knowledge of the technological services we intend to provide, and expertise, which will go a long way towards penetrating the market. Below are the summarized strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
Research indicates that the younger more ambitious market presently in the executive and overall business sector, being more educated and aware of the global environment, assesses and implements its core activities to a much higher degree than past trends have indicated. This is exacerbated by the increase in competition in all industries. Therefore with the emergence of this generation of individuals, the appreciation of quality services and business communication solutions/recommendations that provide for and enable company growth, dictates that our service lines will be popular.
The current drive by the government towards a more diversified economy presents an opportunity for our business to propel and excel in our intended markets, benefiting from the support of the concerned institutions and trade bodies. In addition with the country increasingly becoming an economic hub, we foresee a demand for high quality business communication solutions. Through undertaking our business activities professionally, we foresee that it should not be too difficult to gain market acceptance if we deliver the final service timeously and of good quality, at competitive rates.
3.3 Sales Literature
The business will begin with a general services brochure establishing the positioning of the company and services clients are able to benefit from. These shall be designed for the decision-makers ensuring they are not too technical, but short and concise. Literature and mailings shall also be designed in such a way that they establish a high-quality look and feel, in order to create and fulfill the right sense of professionalism. Breakfast seminars shall be undertaken in the initial period of the project targeting decision-makers and ensuring they understand the benefits of our services in today’s business environment. Another important marketing tool will be CD-ROMS. These shall be targeted at business executives who often do not have much time on their hands and are looking at utilizing every second productively. These CD-ROMS shall be most useful as they will listen to them whilst in transit from one business meeting to another.
We also intend to have well designed posters, table tents, T-shirts, mouse pads, keys-holders, and mugs distributed at strategic points and procured through reputable manufacturers so as not to compromise on quality. Potential strategic points for our literature include hotels, lodges, computer hardware and software distributors amongst others.
Aero Technologies will strive to maintain the latest business communication hardware and software capabilities so as to ensure we are continuously at the forefront in our market arena. The one certainty in our industry is that technology will continue to evolve and develop, changing what we market as well as how we market it. Our aim will be to be aware of the implications of this new technology and utilize it in our existing framework where possible. Complete presentation facilities for preparation and delivery of multimedia presentations on Macintosh or Windows machines, in formats that include on-disk presentation or video presentation are also possibilities that still are being looked into. We also intend to have the latest and most efficient software in place to enable smooth operations. Please see the capital equipment for further details.
3.5 Future Products and Services
In putting the project together we have attempted to offer enough services to allow us to always be in demand by our clients. However, technological developments have provided us with a new era of opportunities for the various organizations in which we can only guess at the needs. For example, current rapid innovations/ development of Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) technology, which is seeing a new service being introduced almost on a fortnightly basis overseas, presents an opportunity to be realized, particularly focusing on WAP enabled cellphones that enable individuals to access or send their email messages over the cellphone. There is also the possibility to introduce video-conferencing, as we will have the necessary infrastructure in place. Applications such as banking by cellphone, online telephone directories and delivery of breaking news headlines are also future services to be utilized. However, the most important factor in developing future services will be market need. Our understanding of the needs of our target market segments will be one of our competitive advantages. It is critical to our effort to develop the right new services.
