SWOT Analysis

Our core marketing strategy includes evaluating how the brand lean into what it does well, improve what it does not, capitalize on what it can do, and defend against what could challenge it. With that in mind, here is our SWOT analysis for Quarter 4.

Strengths

  • Our company has the highest balanced scorecard in the industry for overall business performance.
  • Our Company has effectively managed the resources of our firm, being ranked the highest in financial performance and wealth for Q3.
  • We are producing quality-brand products. Two out of three of our products were accredited by the union.

Weaknesses

  • We want to update all our products with quality parts and be more dominant in the industry in all target segments.
  • We are undergoing evaluation by the Union to gain accreditation; however, we are still missing some requirements for our first target market segment: Mountain bikes.
  • We have also ranked the lowest for investment in future within our competitors, which reflects the willingness of our company to spend current revenues on future business opportunities and goodwill.

Opportunities

  • The industry may want to offer more segments as the market continues to increase. We will do well at catering to other unique segments.
  • Customers are still willing to buy, but at the same price points that we have seen in recent quarters.
  • We are shifting our focus on Opening more locations in all 4 geographic areas. By maximizing our store footprints will allow us to shift and prepare for longevity and growth through future business opportunities in all locations.
  • We are also continuing to invest in our employees by investing in research to promote employment involvement and how to become a good neighbor.
  • We plan to focus on improvements in our production facilities to create a model for the whole industry that can foster a positive impact in the community.

Threats

  • Production cost and changes are expensive. Our customers are not willing to pay more, which is less ROI for our company.
  • Prices are not expected to improve, but EnVLuxe must make various of adjustments that will cost more in production.
  • The chemicals from our products are affecting our workers.
  • Thirty percent or more of the parts assembled at the production facility are not meeting quality control standards.
  • The production facility is currently working at about 60% of its anticipated throughput. Part of the problem is worker motivation. Another part is the design of the production process and material handling procedures.
