AIMIL With over 400 products, big and small, AIMIL is the largest manufacturer in this field. Has been a trend setter in terms of features, quality, reliability. Users swear by the name of AIMIL, making it synonymous with the quality. This was not achieved in a day, or a week, a month or even a year. A system was in place, where AIMIL was able to understand the exact market requirements and responded accordingly. For this sole purpose, we are where we are today.
Points to be noticed We are where we were. We will be where we are. IS THIS ACCEPTABLE???
Constraints? Market Size? Limited Application? No new projects? Unfavorable Market Situation? OR Delivery Time????
Competitor Growth Based on some analysis, following points have emerged:- AIMIL has retained its market share based on YoY basis. HEICO’s Civil Engg. Range has lost its share. Other small and local suppliers have gained some prominence. Controls has started assembling their CTM units in India. Major competition is felt in Government tenders where “L1” is the only criteria.
What’s needed? Achieve a consistent growth in terms of volume. Understanding the rapidly changing market trends. To make the best possible use of our engineering facilities. A constantly updating database based on Sales/CSG/Engineering feedback. A complete and thorough knowledge on our own existing product range.
THE WAY AHEAD…. Introduction of “PRODUCT ROADMAP” Concept. What is a “PRODUCT ROADMAP”? Why a “PRODUCT ROADMAP”? A two word definition can be “What Next”? “What Next”?.....For the existing product, for new products, for customization options and so on. This will be based on useful feedback from our MVPs, the Sales & CSG teams. We all need a good foresight and keep ourselves updated.
PRODUCT ROADMAP AIMIL’s “PRODUCT ROADMAP” will apply to: Application – Our machines will focus on covering the widest spectrum of users with new products or modifications to existing products. Customization – Options for Bespoke/Custom which can be easily incorporated for meeting specific requirements. Performance – Classic reputation of AIMIL of making high performance machines which have a great service life and great reliability. Features – Addition of peripheral features to keep up with latest trends as well having a sole focus on giving customer the maximum output for his investment. Aesthetics - The look of “AIMIL” machines to make them stand out. Ergonomics – Attention to small details and features to enhance the productivity of users
HOW WILL A PRODUCT ROADMAP HELP? Address all the technical and application issues in a time bound manner. Introduction of newer features periodically, depending on market feasibility vs. cost. Biggest help for Sales Force will be the availability of “Lockin Specifications” Introduction of new machines. Always stay a step ahead of the competition. We will also target “International Acceptance” of AIMIL machines manufactured in India.
