The internet of things is an immensely explored field that has shifted execution of mundane and operation of complex tasks like manufacturing. Consequentially production costs have dropped rapidly, and more products are outputted since machines can fill up time that humans cannot and perform more work. Analysts have noted that the European fair has adapted the trend faster than other continents.
Jason Hopes is an enthusiast of technology and has an unmistakable passion in the arena. He expounded on the notion that the world is becoming smaller. Cars, cameras, and home appliances have a degree of connection in today’s world. Kevin Ashton devised Internet of Things in 1999, but it is only recently the innovators are fully embracing the idea.
The Internet of Things in Europe has picked in plenty of daily operations. Bain & Company conducted a 2017 research that indicated 27 percent of Europeans use IoT in mobile analysis processes. 25 percent of company administrators have the intent to integrate the tech into the preexisting IT systems by the year 2020. The data does not match up with a similar in the United States. Only 16 percent of executives are open to using IoT in IT. The European viewpoint is that IoT results in better and cheaper productivity. However, the open Americans stated more upsides that will be the result of IoT. Most foresee an increase in the quality of products due to use of accurate analytics.
Jason Hope concurred with those observations stating that combining analytic tools and sensors in manufacturing can help tell the company how the products perform. Real time data optimize efforts and allows executives to make more efficient strategies. He added that stiffened competition would rapidly increase use of IoT. According to Jason, the biggest issue in the adaptation of the technological trend is cyber crimes.
He revealed that they are more frequent in Europe and pose a threat to the growth of IoT. Another pressing matter is the privacy of customers. Companies which use or plan to use sensors to track sales have to assure customers of their safety consistently. Jason is positive that despite the few setbacks, IoT is the future of the world and will be catapulted into higher levels by the Millennial age.
Strategies that Fabletics is Using to Take on Amazon
Amazon is considered to be largest online retail company, selling just about everything. Many people know this mogul company to dominate many industries including e-books and electronics. However, what many people don’t know is that it is the largest shareholder of the fashion industry, with over 20% in market share. As such, it makes it hard for new companies within this industry to enter and thrive. But, not Fabletics. This company came around some four years ago and could take nothing short of success. In the short four years, the company has managed to achieve a growth of over $250 million, renedering it one of the fastest growing companies in this industry and threatening to take over the position of Amazon in the industry.
One of the reasons for the huge success that Fabletics has achieved is its ability to balance between quality and price. Fabletics is known for the quality of its apparels, alright. But, this is not all that defines this brand. Unlike other premier league brands that differentiate themselves by being pricey, Fabletics keep their prices friendly. This has enabled the company to make more sales as its products are accessible to a majority.
Another reason for the success of Fabletics is their sales strategy. First, the company has an online store that is accessible 24/7 and has customer support, throughout. Recently, they started opening offline stores, making it possible for people who love their products, but cannot trust their personal information online, to access their products. As such, they have successfully been able to gain a share of customers in both offline and online channels.
Membership subscription is the other reason why Fabletics is winning this war. Unlike most companies, becoming a VIP member at Fabletics is not a long process and it does have its perks. First, as a member, you get to buy goods at highly-discounted prices. Also, your order is designed by your taste and preferences and you get free shipping every month, unless you choose to skip the month or have not approved shipping. Additionally, each time you shop, you get loyalty points, which can be redeemed for freebies. It should be noted that membership is optional as you can choose to shop and go then come back when you are ready. But, considering all the perks of being a member, there is no reason for not trying this program.

Every year the Global Vision Academy nominates someone as winner of their Global Visionary Award, particularly for following through on a vision they had to start a business. In 2016 the honorary recipient of this award happened to be Sheldon Lavin, the owner and CEO of Chicago-based OSI Group. Lavin won the award because he had entered into a field that he originally had no intention of entering into, and then took a company from being only a domestic meat processing plant holding company into a worldwide distributor work billions of dollars. Lavin is 81 years old but has said he enjoys the company so much he doesn’t plan on stepping down just yet.
Sheldon Lavin is from a Jewish American family and found his first interest in investing and finance. He managed accounts for several well-known banks before becoming a private consultant for several companies, and it was while doing this that he met the sons of Otto Kolschowsky who currently ran the family company known as Otto & Sons.
Sheldon Lavin initially served as a Part-Time Finance Manager for Otto & Sons guiding them in different investment strategies, but soon the Kolschowsky sons wanted him to become company CEO. Lavin at first declined because he believed sticking strictly to finance was his best option. But in time he reconsidered the offer and soon believed he could do something good to the company.
In the mid 1970s the Kolschowsky sons retired and sold their ownership shares to Lavin who then took over along with current President David McDonald. Lavin soon renamed Otto & Sons to OSI Industries, and soon the company was opening and buying more factories to produce products for McDonalds and other partners they later joined with. Today OSI Group owns processing plants in 17 different countries and is listed as the 10th largest meat processing plant. In addition to the Global Visionary award, Lavin has won awards for his philanthropy which involves many charity organizations such as Inner City of Chicago Foundation, Boys & Girls Club, National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
