...Stroller Cool Marketing Plan 2012 Kristin Vanderbilt Marketing Management 08/16/2012 Executive Summary Stroller Cool is a brand new product that is unlike any other product on the market. Our product is simple, but will change the lives of caregivers all over the world. When doing preliminary research, we found that most caregivers face mounting stress when taking out children, mostly because of the amount of “stuff” they have to take with them. A stroller, diaper bag, snacks, bottles, etc. This makes for a very difficult situation, especially when a caregiver is going out by themselves. Our product is a simple cooler, with reusable cooler packs, that clips on the bottom of a stroller. You can store bottles, juice and small snacks, eliminating at least one bag and keeping things cool while you go about your business. As of right now, there is nothing else like this on the market, so we feel that we our product will sell. We plan on forming a partnership with Graco, the world’s premier stroller manufacture ("Graco," 2012), we will offer that the product will only fit on their strollers and in exchange we will ask that they assist with advertising. We will infiltrate the market with a solid product and will keep changing our product to reflect the suggestions of our consumer. We will focus on customer relations and go out our way to listen to consumers ideas as to how we can improve our product. By the end of the year, we plan on already putting out...

Groupe Ariel

...Groupo Ariel: A Project Analysis On June 23, 2008, a Monday morning, Francois Belliard arrived at his office in Groupo Ariel’s corporate headquarters in Toulon, France. The prior week, Belliard had requested additional financial information about an investment proposal from Ariel-Mexicana, a wholly-owned subsidiary that operated a manufacturing facility and a regional sales office in Jalisco, Mexico. The information had arrived late Friday, too late for Belliard to analyze due to the weekend. He sat down this morning to examine the proposal, as it was Belliard’s job to evaluate cross-border projects for Ariel, a global manufacturer of printing and imaging equipment. This type of cross-border proposal was not unusual as Ariel was in the process of expanding its global presence beyond Europe. The Mexican investment proposal called for the purchase and installation of new automated machinery to recycle and refurbish toner and printer cartridges for the local market. Recycling and refurbishment had become a large portion of Ariel’s business in all its markets; both European and foreign. This process and market had burgeoning margins and was proving to be a centerpiece of Ariel’s future growth. Many office product retailers operated formal toner cartridge recycling programs, both for environmental reasons of keeping reusable waste from landfills and demonstrating cost savings to customers over continually buying new OEM product. Writing in a leading trade journal, one industry...

Case Study Ariel Project

... individual objectives, there is a lack of consistent vision. There is also a lack of leadership and communication due to an unstable executive team. In the start to pursue the project was done haphazardly and hurriedly, without taking the current development projects in to consideration, which because of Ariel, would suffer serious setback in their schedule. Throughout the study, various instances are observed where lack of leadership is felt and hence, to improve decision-making TerraCog should have a strong leader, a cohesive group with a consistent vision, and have more effective and ongoing communication. Alternate Solutions: The way forward can be divided in to various options and their individual merits will be discussed, followed by recommended solution. 1. Lower Quality – TerraCog has built its core business on quality over technological superiority, lowering the quality would be an option in order to bring the product to market at the desired price. Production would suffer the most in the sense that Barren has already been reprimanded for producing low quality in the past. Also, given that TerraCog’s business was built on quality, it wouldn’t likely make sense to not remain consistent with the company’s image. 2. Launch Product at $475 – Sales would suffer immensely at the expense of Design & Development and Production. In the end, this option wouldn’t make any sense since sales drive the business. 3. Launch Product at $400 – At this price, the......
