SWOT Analysis

Strengths

ATC is one of the top ten players in the industry in China and the second largest of its kind in the South China area.;

The company is over 11 years old and one of the three major distributors (with exclusive distribution rights in the South China area) of the US supplier Intermec.;

ATC is the only company of its kind in China that covers a complete line of products and services from computer systems development to sales of equipment and consumables;

ATC boasts more successful cases in integrating barcode management systems with ERP systems than its competitors. Major clients for radio frequency barcode system integration include: Panasonic Guangzhou, Thermo King(US$ automobile air-conditioner manufacturer, Shenzhen and Suzhou), Hitachi Guangzhou Shenzhen, Zhong xing Communications, Yulin Diesel Engine and Selectron(US electronics firm) etc. The company also supplies equipment and consumables to Dell, Honda and Acer along with over 100 Chinese companies.;

ATC is a standing member of AIM China; ATC has extensive experience and solid expertise in serving the manufacturing industry. Its proximity to Hong Kong gives it flexibility over its competitors in providing timely delivery of equipment and consumables (mainly imported) to its customers.

Weaknesses

Lack of funds for expansion;

Its main supplier Intermec entered the China market five years later than its competitor Symbol (USA) therefore lost its first-mover advantage.

The turnover rate high, many multi-national enterprises enter into China. Some powerful company such as Techtrend Co,ltd which is a multi-national enterprise, can offer a perfect remuneration system to strongly attract the excellent talents to join them from other company.

Opportunities

China is fast becoming a global manufacturing base and one of ATC’s strength is providing barcode solutions to manufacturing businesses. The current market concentrates on the southern, eastern and northern areas of China. The central and western parts of the Chinese market have yet to be developed.

Global RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) market size is growth exponentially. According to a research conducted by IDTechEx, The value of the total market, including systems and service, will rocket to $26.9 billion in 2015.

The Chinese barcode market is growing at 35% annually

Threats

Major competitors with sufficient funds are developing aggressively; can afford high pay to attract the high quality talent

Its main competitor TechTrend Engineering Limited has a longer history (started in 1988) and is backed by its German invested group company in Hong Kong. TechTrend is a distributor of Symbol(Intermec’s major competitor) and Zebra (USA) etc. As a foreign invested company, the TechTrend is also better manage

 

Major business strategy of our company

Intensifying distributing management, connecting the network with Radio Frequency Barcode Terminal as well as providing system solution for the client are main business of our company.

   The system integration need a sound coordinated teamwork and high techniques to support the implement of project, otherwise the project are utterly not accomplished. So a few rival can participate the completion in this segment. Relatively weak competition can heave the value of our company. Intermec’s product and technology, which is one of the largest barcode equipment manufacturers, stand for the developing trend in the world. Following Intermec’s developing orientation is a strategic target of Advance Technology.

 

Management issue and implement strategies

Establishing annual objectives

According to the estimated to the market of barcode industry. the company has potential to grow to a point in this time where its total value of sales could reach RMB30million yuan. Such sales revenue could come from the following business activities:

Software development and sales (RMB.5million);

Sales of barcode equipment (RMB 15million)

Sales of consumables (RMB 8 million )

RFID technology, printer heads (RMB 2 million)

Devising policies

Set a complete rules, regulation and expectation for the organization

 

Allocating resources

As our annual objectives is 30 million. We should set a allocation plan based on four types of resource: financial, physical, human and technological for the firm. That is how many people are allocated in this department or subsidiary? How much expense should they spend?

 

Altering existing organizational structure , restructuring& reengineering

Constitute new organizational structure, abolish old department and people that will hinder organization’s development decrease the quantity of direct salesperson for the end user., increase the representative for the channel of sales. Intensify the management of the website and collection of the information through Internet.

 

Revising reward & incentive programs

Basic salary combining bonus

Basic salary

First of all, the investigation of local life standard should be taken, secondarily we should evaluate the lever of remuneration in barcode industry, especially rival’s remuneration. Finally, in accordance with the actual situation of our company involving different position, working duration in the company, professional skill, job experience and educational lever, as well as annual objectives and long –term objective, we respectively set different basic salary for different employees.

Bonus

  The prevalent approach linking to salesperson’s amount of sales is probably the best incentive method. Most of the enterprises set the rule of commission based on performance for the salespersons. It was easy to appraise one’s performance taking advantage of quantitative calculation

 

Managing resistance to change

Resistance to change can be considered the single greatest threat to successful strategies implementation. People often resist strategy implementation because they do not understand what is happening or why changes are taking place.( note2 ).therefore it is imperative to elaborate the significance regarding the implementation of strategic management

 

Managing the natural environment

All business functions are affected by natural environment consideration or striving to make a profit. ( note 3).

 

Implement strategies HR, Marketing, Fin/Acct, R/D, CIS

Any HRM strategies must link to its business strategies. The HR management strategies rely on the business strategies of the company.

According to porter’s growth strategies and principle of 4ps, we should adopt the approach of the market penetration of intensive strategies to occupy the market.

The relative financial accounting, R/D, CIS should be built a complete system to accommodate firm’s strategies

Particularly, the e-commerce has been applied to various business. We should focus advertisement on Internet, since more and more customers learn the supplier through Internet. Client who want buy barcode equipments usually like to search on Internet to know suppliers’ information, Actually 30% of customers know our company. from Internet. e.g. people input the key words on Google, Yahoo, Sina and so on, the firm’s name will display in top of the rank that is referred to rank on the Internet, which will pay for the rank. This kind of rank emerge more popular

 

Measure & evaluate performance

Below is the Evaluation framework ( note 4) We should take advantage of balance Score card combining the evaluation framework  to evaluate performance. and also review the strategy by four .Criteria: 1.Consistency, 2.Validity, 3.Feasibility, 4.Contributes sustainable advantage..(Note5)

 

 1.Review underlying base
