“Home is our base, our favorite place, our beginning and end to each day…” once wrote the British poet Ms Moem. Indeed, I have always felt that the difference between a house and a home is that hard-to-define, easy-to-understand warm feeling – the feeling of security and safety that people everywhere should be able to enjoy as they wake up or go to bed.
From package delivery drones to electric cars that are unlocked with fingerprint apps, the pace of ‘innovation’ defines modern life and is the key to a competitive business advantage. But as the need for something new, something different and something better increases, it’s crucial that we keep our eyes on the real prize: the customer. Only when we are meeting an unmet customer need can we really deliver worthwhile innovation – innovation that makes a difference to real people in real life.
While most people will agree that our world needs to be more sustainable (what is the alternative anyway?), making it happen seems much more problematic. All too often, it’s difficult to translate good intentions into positive actions, strong ideals into tangible steps.
‘Don’t leave me hanging on the telephone,’ sang the American rock group, Blondie, back in 1978. Rather than unrequited love, the band might easily have been singing about the trials and tribulations of customer service – and, particularly, the emotional turmoil of trying to get through to the complaints department.
With the launch of our Uralac® Ultra resin in 2014, the curing temperature of powder coating resins could be lowered to 130oC, and the curing time to three minutes. This might not sound immediately revolutionary, but it meant powder coatings could now be applied to a wide range of wooden and MDF substrates without danger of the substrate being damaged, paving the way for the use of powder coatings in wooden furniture manufacturing.
Let’s take a trip together to 2050. For those living in the Netherlands, the day begins with a tasty cup of organic, locally sourced, zero-carbon coffee. Grown just down the road in one of our country’s many vertical farms, and home-delivered by solar-powered drone. After a slice of toast – baked in our very own hydrogen cell oven using biotechnology enabled supergrains – we kiss our loved ones goodbye and set off to work.
Any good sales or marketing professional understands the power of having public opinion behind them. And in today’s age of heightened sustainability awareness, companies of all shapes and sizes are keener than ever to demonstrate their ‘green’ credentials.
Just ask Kodak, Blockbuster or Nokia: digital technology is redesigning commercial landscapes beyond recognition and can disrupt even the most established of industries. And where B2C goes, B2B usually follows.
