What We Do


WHAT WE DO

SUCCESS THROUGH PURPOSE, ANALYSIS, INSIGHT, ALIGNMENT AND ACTION

Unique Advantage currently engages in assignments geared to improve our clients’ business success by searching for areas of opportunity that provide competitive advantage.

This competitive advantage must address challenges and provide value that exceeds the cost of our services.

Customer challenges we can help to solve:

  • Revenue growth not keeping pace with growing costs (increases/inflation)
    • Caught in a price war with competitors (Last minute discounting to grow sales a regular occurrence)
    • Lagging in market share (behind fair share / behind strategic targets)
    • Not converting as much business as we should relative to enquiries
  • Unaligned sales, marketing, revenue and operations (cost) management strategies
  • Too much time spent managing pricing, inventory and distribution channels
  • Poor/inadequate market awareness
    • Unsure of which channels to participate in and how
    • Indirect channels are selling cheaper than direct
    • Direct channels not getting desired amount of business (volume and rate)
  • Gut-feel decision making
    • Information is disparate and difficult to use to make decisions
    • Reactive and impulsive decision making (pricing and demand)
    • JIT decisions based on what competition is doing
