ADVERTISING AND MERCHANDISING
THE success of a business operation is directly proportional to customer awareness of its products, services and reputation. Professional advertising and merchandising are the most effective media for relaying a company’s message to its customers and the general public. CIP can assist with the development of imaginative advertising and merchandising programmes suited to clients’ specific needs and environment.
COMPUTER SYSTEMS
ALL departments in all businesses can benefit from computerisation but the variety of systems available can be confusing. CIP has access to all available software systems and can, therefore, be unbiased in recommending those which would be most suitable for a specific business environment.
E
MERGING MARKETS
CIP specialises in Emerging Markets in view of the Directors' vast experience in these regions around the world for more than 30 years each. This sector requires specialist knowledge and an empathy with the local business environment which few consultants can offer, but which is one of the main reasons for CIP's success since its inception in 1994. Clients benefit from the strong belief that these markets have a vast untapped potential which is ripe for development and which can only benefit the countries and companies themselves.

INDIGENISATION

IN many countries there is a desire to plan for the indigenous population to gradually fill positions currently held by expatriate personnel. CIP can assist by preparing a plan for this change over and can give local personnel gradually reducing levels of support and assistance whilst developing them to assume the full responsibilities of the position.

MANAGEMENT LOCUM SERVICE

WHEN a senior manager leaves a company at short notice it usually takes some while to locate a suitable replacement. For subordinates or other managers to stand in for a short while may not be appropriate. CIP offers a locum service which not only avoids the temptation to hire the first available applicant, regardless of suitability, but also provides an outsider’s view of the business which may assist both management and the new incumbent to more rapidly reassess the operation of the department.

MARKET SURVEYS
IN the planning of any business it is imperative to have detailed knowledge of one’s market and to continuously monitor relevant changes and anticipated trends. Independent market surveys are the most practical way of obtaining unbiased market information. CIP has extensive experience in conducting such market surveys world-wide and has a wealth of statistical information on a market by market basis.

RECRUITMENT
CIP has knowledge of a large number of people at all levels within the industry world-wide and also has access to a number of recruitment agencies, each specialising in a particular business environment. Potential candidates can be suggested for final review and selection by clients. See also our Recruitment Page.

TRAINING - GENERAL
ALL training courses are tailor-made for the particular operation, environment and requirements of the client. Modules are created to allow ongoing development as required. CIP also specialises in on-the-job training as well as long term training schemes. See also our Training Page.

TRAINING - SALES
COURSES are available covering all aspects of the sales operation including, but not limited to, accessories, commission schemes, communications, computer systems, customer facing personnel, financial management, follow systems, forecasting, leasing, personnel management, point of sale material, prospecting, qualifying prospects, recruitment, sales aids, sales management, specifications, territory planning, time management, used product appraisal and stock control.
TRAINING - SERVICE, ASSEMBLY & PRODUCTION
TECHNICAL training often needs to be franchise specific and is usually covered by the manufacturers themselves. However, where this is not the case, CIP can arrange to cover specific areas of technical training for clients.  Training of non-productives is generally not franchise specific. CIP conducts training courses and seminars covering all disciplines which include, but are not limited to, Appointments, Communications, Computer Systems, Contract Maintenance, Costing and Administration, Customer Relations, Financial Management, Incentive Schemes, New Product Preparation, Personnel Management, Product Delivery Techniques, Quality Control, Reception, Recruitment, Service Management, Service Workshop Control, Special Tools & Equipment, Warranty Operations, Work Distribution, Workshop Efficiency and Workshop Layout.

TRAINING - PARTS
COURSES are available covering all aspects of the parts operation including, but not limited to, catalogue, CD-ROM and microfiche reading, computer systems, identification of parts, lead times, logistics, personnel management, pricing policies, stock control and warehouse layout.

TRAINING - DRIVING
DEFENSIVE Driving & Zero Accident Fleet Training Programme is ideally suited to developing markets where high accident rates are causing concern internally as well as the detrimental effect a poor reputation can have on tourists and other visitors.
