Revitalizing a UK Banking Technology Company: Unlocking Surplus Product Sales through Multi-Faceted Countertrade Solutions
Here's What We Do Better
Our client, a banking technology company based in the United Kingdom, specializes in providing innovative software solutions and services to financial institutions worldwide. Their target audience includes banks, credit unions, and other financial service providers in need of secure, efficient, and user-friendly software to streamline their operations and enhance customer experiences.
Despite the high quality and value of their products, the company struggled to find buyers for surplus products, limiting their revenue growth and hindering their expansion into new markets. The challenge was to identify and implement suitable countertrade mechanisms to address this issue and unlock the full potential of the company’s offerings.
As the countertrade expert and consultant, we proposed and implemented a combination of multiple countertrade mechanisms to address the client’s problem:
Offsets (Direct and Indirect): We facilitated offset agreements with suppliers in various countries, enabling our client to invest in the local economy in exchange for purchase commitments from buyers.
Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT): We assisted the client in establishing BOT agreements in selected target markets. This involved building and operating local data centers and software development facilities, which were then transferred to local partners after a specified period.
Joint Ventures (JVs): We formed strategic joint ventures with local technology companies in target markets, enabling our client to leverage local expertise and resources to develop customized solutions for the local banking industry.
Framework Agreements: We negotiated long-term framework agreements with key customers, ensuring continuous demand for the client’s surplus products and facilitating future trade transactions.
To implement the selected countertrade mechanisms, we took the following steps:
Conducted thorough market research to identify the most promising target markets for the client’s products and services.
Engaged in negotiations with potential partners and customers in these target markets to establish mutually beneficial agreements.
Worked closely with the client to adapt their products and services to meet the specific requirements of each target market.
Provided ongoing support and guidance to the client throughout the implementation process, ensuring that all agreements were executed effectively and efficiently.
Our multi-faceted countertrade strategy led to significant improvements in the client’s business performance, including:
Increased sales revenue by 250% as a result of the new demand generated through offset agreements and joint ventures.
Expanded the client’s global presence to 25 new countries within 60 days, due in large part to the establishment of BOT facilities and strategic JVs.
Established a new, diversified supplier base across 20 countries, reducing supply chain risks and improving operational efficiency.
Developed strong, long-lasting relationships with key customers through framework agreements, contributing to a more stable revenue stream.
By implementing a combination of countertrade mechanisms tailored to the client’s specific needs, we successfully transformed the UK-based banking technology company from struggling with surplus products into a highly profitable enterprise with a rapidly expanding global presence. Our strategic approach to countertrade enabled the client to not only find new buyers for their surplus products but also to establish a strong foothold in new markets, positioning them for sustained growth and success.
