Why should you invest in your business?
At one time or another in our lives we all want to own our own business. For many of us, taking that giant leap towards total independence and financial high gains is very frightening. However, buying into a Engineering franchise can be a viable option where you, as the franchisee, are provided with the established name brand of the company and engineering know how, i.e. an established trade mark and backing in the form of engineering know how, business management systems, access to technology at competitive prices and funding capital and more importantly at measurable and manageable risk levels.
The number of organizational fatality amongst small companies is high where SMEE’S do not survive for long periods or find it almost impossible to grow their markets, notwithstanding Government’s economic development initiatives targeting stimulation and growth of SMEE’S. These failures can be generally ascribed to the following main market’s shortcomings :
- Accessibility to capital –high set up and operational costs
- High research and development costs
- Expert business management and Engineering knowledge.
- Extensive service and maintenance capabilities ,capacities and distribution centres
- Scarcity of suitably qualified and experienced human resources .
