Things To Look Out For When You Buy A Car

Posted by on Oct 16, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

After making decisions about how to finance your car, you’ll be wondering where to go and buy one. If you decide to go for a new car, there are plenty of show rooms around that can help you out with this. If you’ve decided to go ahead and buy a used car, there are a number of ways you can go about this and some of these ways are riskier than others.

There are pros and cons for each way to go about it so in this guide, we are going to talk you through the places you could buy your second hand car as well as the good and bad for each. Whether a franchise or an independent, dealers can facilitate your purchase of buying a used car. Your consumer rights with a dealer are protected and stronger than if you choose to buy through a private arrangement. A car bought from somewhere like crownhonda.co.uk is also more likely to have a warranty still on the vehicle and you would be more than likely able to part-exchange your existing car. Car finance options tend to be more readily available for a car bought from a dealer and this opens up more options for you as a buyer. Cars with dealers tend to have had inspections and be ready and expecting to negotiate with you on a car deal. This translates to certain times of the year when you can get a much better deal on a used car than others.

The issues though, tend to be that dealers’ prices tend to be higher than if buying a car privately. Yes, you pay for a little more security, but it can make buying a car from crownhonda.co.uk that little bit out of reach.  Understanding how to negotiate the best deal with a dealer can be difficult and so you should always take someone with you to help you broker the best deal if you’re not confident. Warranties with dealers, while handy to have, can include restrictive clauses and so you need to ensure you read the fine print before you sign on the dotted line. Other options for car purchase include a private seller but the biggest obstacle here is that cars bought privately are often ‘sold as seen’ and so if there are any problems, you have less of a legal comeback. The good thing is that you are far more likely to pay less than if you bought the same car from a dealer and if the seller is desperate for a buyer you can negotiate good discounts on the basis you can take the car away there and then.

You also get the added advantage of meeting the previous owner and you can know a little more about the car history. Whichever way you go when it comes to buying a used car, you have to be smart about the choices you make and ask all the right questions.

6 Reasons Product Development Is Good For Your Company

Posted by on Oct 12, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

What drives established UK product engineering company to spend valuable resources (time, money, human capital, etc.) on new product development. Here are six reasons to invest in new product development.

Competitive Advantage:

Staying ahead of the competition should always be front of mind for existing companies.  New products give you a competitive advantage over your competition.  It might be new sales, more shelf space, consumer impressions or other advantages. If you are the market leader, you want to keep your competitive advantage, if you are not the market leader – you need a competitive advantage. New products allow you to focus on taking a competitive leadership position. There’s leadership position in the nut category is clear and their continued focus on new products keeps them in front.  Their new dessert inspired mixes are definitely look mouth-watering.

Innovation Story:

Speaking of competitive leadership, there is the credibility that comes with being the category innovator.  Innovative companies are thought of as creative and ground-breaking bringing more excitement to their brand and solving consumer problems. Being first is always better than needing to flatter your competition by replicating something they did first and you wish you had thought of earlier.

Ancillary Sales:

Every brand wants more sales and new products help. New items might not be your number one SKU driving the most sales, but they drive new sales to your brand or category and they provide a continued look at existing products consumers may have forgotten about keeping your brand front of mind. I’m sure watermelon flavored Oreo’s are not their best seller, but each new offering generates loads of consumer media attention and new purchases.

Reason to See Your Buyer & Engage Your Consumer:
Depending on your category you might see your buyer one to four times a year…maybe monthly if you’re lucky. During those meetings you probably discuss general category data including pricing, promotions and performance, but what about products.  Same story different day doesn’t create a lot of reason for the buyer to schedule an extra meeting with you or give you more business.  New products on the other hand generate new discussion and new opportunities.

Test Consumer Trends

Consumers are constantly evolving which means their tastes and preferences change with them. In recent years we’ve see probiotic foods, gluten free, and paleo emerge as just some of the important consumer food trends. Your ability to maintain an active focus on innovation and stay current on trends allows you to be ahead of the curve with emerging consumer trends and test new concepts in early stages of trends and refine them as the trend becomes mainstream. This test and refine concept allows you to see what concepts have potential and which were fleeting while still maintaining a competitive advantage.

Explore Technology

Just like consumer trends drive new products, advances in technology drive new opportunities in various food products as well, typically in the area of food packaging. Food packaging and processing advances have opened up entirely new product opportunities. Your innovation, production and marketing team should constantly be exploring new technology that will aid in new product development.

New product development doesn’t have to be costly, but it must be a priority. Just like we talked about the power of building a marketing-minded culture, it’s equally important to include innovation as part of that ideal to foster continued organizational growth.

Is it comfortable?

These are mainly the most used materials for recycling a bag. When it comes to providing comfort, it is far better than using a plastic or a paper bag because it guarantees comfort compared to the handling of a plastic or paper bag. To understand further the benefits that you gain from using an all-purpose eco-friendly bag, here are the following.

Price- this is not only about saving the world from becoming a wasteland but it is also beneficial in your pocket as well. Imagine how much you can save money from having to buy groceries plus pay the bag whereas, with an eco-friendly bag, you can use as much as you can without adding to pay more.

Durability- as mentioned, it can last you for a few cycles of reusing it until such time that it is no longer durable for usage. In comparison to plastic or paper bags, this does not tear up if you are handling more items.

It is an ideal choice for bulky products- going to purchase bulky items may require you to bring two or more plastic or paper bags in your home. Whereas with an eco-friendly bag, you only use one eco-bag or depends on the bulkiness.

Advertising- more companies who are advertising and are making an event are using eco-friendly bags because they can easily blot their company name and logo on the bag. This is a good strategy if you opt for this kind of idea.

Investing for a reusable eco-friendly bag is definitely a smart choice because it does not bring harm to the health of the environment. Keep in mind that reusing is also meant for washing it.
