"Creativity is people who care enough to keep thinking about something until thy find the simplest way to do it"

Tim Cook, CEO Apple

If Apple core beliefs is creativity and innovation and they are consistently capable to produce amazing products for the masses (Nike is another example), then your organization can do too and become a global brand. However a stable, effective and reliable supply chain is needed to fuel your growth - as Tim Cook (previously Chief Operating Officer) might be able to confirm.

Creativity and Innovation and two ends of a spectrum as creativity are the ideas and novel thinking that when applied with management and strategy create innovation - a market-tested approach that relies on ideas and 'science'. Strategy, for us, is at the core of everything we do and data happens to be our tool to deliver value in clients engagements.

Why Trading Smarter?

Digital is at the heart of an ecosystem that integrates information, data and processes in your operations in a way that allows better integration with the wider supply chains. We believe that digital logistics should be at the heart of your supply chain too and this integrates perfectly with your plans for growth and bigger things for your business.

Smart Trade + Market Entry Strategies

We use a 'smart' approach to international trade and we integrate it with Global Operations in a unique way. Our navigation tool allows you you to operate in international trade seamlessly. We support you all the way from initial entry to successful commercialization of your products and this entails a smart export plan and a successful Go-to-Market plan that integrates Operations and Regulations.

Here are 2 examples of global market entry strategies your organization can use to its advantage:

  • Distributors and commercial partners - while this strategy reduces the level of control your business has on the commercial aspect of your marketing strategy, when planned and managed correctly can reap benefits over long term. We can help you with our past experience where we managed exports to over 30 countries solely via distribution partnerships. We know the challenges and how your organization can overcome to improve efficiency and ensure maximum profitability.

  • Direct Exporting - here you market directly to end consumers in the countries you plan to sell (without third parties). E-commerce might be an option and with the switch to online retailing (especially after the onset of the pandemic), digital business models might reap the benefits of this low-cost but highly marketing-driven strategy.

Our insight: why not choosing a hybrid strategy and segment markets according to complexity, ease of doing business, cultural similarity, etc. according to the audience in your target market in your home country prior to making a market entry decision? Contact us to get a detailed roadmap for your global trade objectives.
