Some of our reviews include popular topics which are either revenue enhancing, cost controlling or efficiency enhancing.
Your company could benefit from our specialist services in the following topics already, and more is coming as we develop our offering further:
Standard Licensing Review
Licensing can be a great part of a profitable business revenue stream. Companies with brand awareness or product value in the fields of fashion, footwear, sportswear or accessories often choose to license either within a new product category, a sub-brand or a different geographical territory in retail or wholesale. This can for instance be as a result of investigating how to export, how to increase revenues or how to activate brand extensions that are outside of the companies' own core competencies.
By initiating a Standard Licensing Review you can start looking seriously at how the licensing model might play a (bigger or better) part in achieving an increase in profits or business growth.
The goal of this review is to give you a comprehensive overview of your current position, strengths and opportunities along with recommendations on what your next steps might be.
Standard Product Development Process Review
The Product Development process of clothing and other related items can in itself be a significant and regular cost to companies within the fields of fashion, footwear, sportswear and accessories. The department responsible for design and development has a serious influence on your brand image, customers, licensees, business performance and your ability to increase profits.
Controlling the many influences on the process such as tight time-lines, customer and market demands, internal demands, supplier performance and the associated correspondence, components, branding, ethics, approvals and shipping can be a challenge to any fashion and other organisations at times.
By initiating a Standard Development Process Review you can obtain a fresh and experienced eye on the product creation cycle within your company that will help you make decisions to move that part of your business forward.
The goal of this review is to give you an overview of the strengths and weaknesses within your development process along with recommendations on how to introduce improvements or regain control.
Standard Sourcing Review
Your sourcing or production partners should be very well matched to the needs of your customers or distributors and through that, your business. Your performance in design, branding and sales do not account for nearly as much if your products do not get made at the right cost, lead-time, ethical standards and quality as required by the markets that you operate in.
Your business could benefit from our Standard Sourcing Review by providing you with an objective view of your source base in relation to your business needs. We will assess the strengths and weaknesses within your sourcing or production methodology and where there might be a need to exchange current methods or sources for alternatives that would be better positioned to help achieve your targets for sustainable growth, increased profits or increased revenues.
Direct From Source Method Workshop (REIGN Method)
Many companies regularly ponder about how they can practically distribute their branded or patented products through more countries, distributors or licensees without creating massive upfront costs or overheads. They might alternatively be concerned about keeping control over their brand and identity in a licensing arrangement.
If you develop and source product (or are planning to do so) the REIGN Method direct from source strategy could be for you.
A direct from source strategy can be used to gain international expansion faster, to retain increased product control or to supplement or replace a licensing model for increased profitability.
This workshop outlines the basic principles behind this method of trading, along with positives and a few negatives.
