The Two Sides of the Profit Coin: Revenue & Product Cost
Everyone knows that 80% of a product’s profitability is determined in the first 20% of product development decisions… and yet most companies spend 90% of their profitability efforts AFTER launch. HA helps manufacturing companies as the world’s leading Product Cost Management experts. We put in place the culture, process, tools, and people needed to deliver the target profit margin WHEN your product launches, not years afterward. Furthermore, if your company does have products that are not as profitable as you would like today, we regularly help companies post-launch with PCM and VA/VE techniques.
Revenue and Innovative Products
The other side of the profit coin is revenue, which comes from bringing the RIGHT product to market. We offer product management, inbound marketing, product demo development, and product & company business plan development. Whether you are selling a Venture Capitalist, a business, or a consumer, we will help you ensure that you know what the customer wants, that you deliver it, and that you make the customers aware the product is available.
