LAMPS

Selling lamps Over the past 10 years the market space in the lamp category has changed in leaps and bounds. Today, certain lamps last longer, emit light differently and cut down on energy consumption. Which ones are they?

T

here are several factors that influence customers in a DIY retail store when it comes to choosing lamps.

Lamps are a necessary fixture in every

household. Lamps are available for any function for both indoor or outdoor use. When choosing lamps a customer will also have a choice of globe, from Halogen to energy saving compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and light emitting diodes (LEDs). TYPES OF LAMPS These lamps are the most commonly used household lamps. NOT AVAILABLE Tungsten incandescent lamps no longer meet the minimum NRCS specifications as set out in 2014 by the Department of Trade and Industry and are therefore not seen on shelves anymore. This is the lamp that the older generation grew up with. It is in an enclosed lamp filled with gas with an electric current which is passed through a filament of tungsten wire to make it glow. These lamps cast a warm, yellowish light and are available in almost any shape and size. Lamps of this kind are approximately 80% heat and are a very inefficient light source. Incandescent lamps can be dimmed to any level and have an average rated life of 1 000 hours. This corresponds to about one year for normal household usage of three hours a day. Tungsten halogen Tungsten halogen lamps are a variation of an incandescent lamp that passes the minim NRCS specifications. They work by passing electricity through a tungsten filament, which is enclosed in a tube containing halogen gas. They produce a brilliant white light and are more efficient (more lumens per watt). However, they are expensive to replace. Halogen lamps are an ecological alternative to standard incandescent lamps. Fluorescent These lamps operate by passing a current through a tube filled with argon gas and mercury, and are very efficient, producing little heat. In the past, fluorescent lamps cast a cool white light, but

Pic cred: Eurolux

nowadays a wide range of colour temperatures are available. They are ideal for lighting large areas where bright light is not paramount, such as garages and offices. Today’s technologies allow for fluorescent lamps to be dimmed. APRIL 2019 DIY & INDUSTRIAL TRADE NEWS

LAMPS incandescent lamps, or gas, as with fluorescent lamps, LEDs emit light from a piece of solid matter or semiconductor. This method of producing light requires less electricity and generates little heat. Until quite recently, the use of LEDs was limited, but is now available in a variety of lighting applications. They are about 85% more energy efficient than conventional incandescent lamps and about 5% more efficient than CFLs. They can last up to 50 000 hours.

LED IS THE FUTURE Most consumers are aware that LED (light emitting diode) lamps have a dramatically longer lifespan in comparison to their incandescent counterparts. An LED offers 15 000 to 30 000 hours of light while an incandescent will only give you up Pic cred: Eurolux

to 2 000 hours, which is roughly ten times less the amount of light. This argument alone makes a strong statement but isn’t necessarily enough to sell a LED bulb over any of the other available options. Compact fluorescent lights (CFLs)

The Vermont Trade Show exceeds expectations Over 6 000 customers attended the 2019 Vermont Sales Show last month making it the biggest and most successful thus far. DIY & Industrial Trade News attended the Vermont Sales Trade show and reports back about some of the new products available from the company’s arsenal.

ALPEN Always a busy stand, the Alpen display this year was hugely impactful – the Austrian team were once again present to take retailers through its range of power tools accessories. One of the new innovations at Alpen is the Alpen Force X for reinforced concrete. Construction sites have been looking for a new hero – and this is it. The design of the drill bit has four tungsten carbide cutting edges, which do not get caught when they encounter steel and continue on a straight drill path. The progressive spiral design is faster at transporting the drill dust, which in turn increases the work rhythm. The dowel length indicator shows at one glance when the desired depth has been reached.

BESSEY CLAMPS Bessey clamps, a well-known brand name throughout the world are constantly innovating and improving its range. Customer feedback is extremely important to Bessey and the new GearKlamp launched recently is a result of problems encountered by customers using a regular clamp when working in unusually tight spaces. Regular clamps are difficult to manoeuvre in tight spaces and Bessey solved this problem with its new clamp which has effectively turned the old version on its head. The new Bessey GearKlamp is a more compact solution than the classic bar clamp and is designed for clamping applications in confined spaces and tightening up material against other work surfaces.

Hikoki brand manager, Dylan Thomas at the South Africa distributor, Matus says retailers have nothing to fear regarding the name change and in fact have much to be excited about. Matus guarantees a smooth transition and that sales and service won’t be disrupted in any way. The rebranded products will have the same product codes, same spare codes and same accessories codes – it is simply the brand name that has changed. The products are still manufactured in the same factories. All guarantees on existing tools in the market will be carried through by Matus. Any Hitachi product sold is still covered by the 12 month warranty. The big question on everyone’s lips is, why the name change, and isn’t it crazy to do away with an established brand name such as Hitachi? In short, Hitachi Koki has been purchased from Hitachi Holdings by KKR and Japanese business practice dictates that once a subsidiary has left the holding company the trade name has to change within a period of two years. KKR who is very aware of the strong Hitachi brand name affirm its belief in the brand and purchased Hitachi Koki for US$1.3bn.

Most executives would agree that the single biggest asset of their organisation is their people, their employees and management. Employee advocacy is at its core, the promotion of an organisation through its staff.

ON THE MOVE FLEET PURCHASING

Valuable tips for potential fleet purchasers

Jim Dando, Nissan South Africa’s director of sales and operations for sub Saharan Africa, offers some tips on purchasing a motoring fleet.

B

ecause a fleet represents the largest chunk of sales, car companies generally focus on the retail market – but fleet purchases also play an important role. Vehicle fleets are important to a range of other customers, including corporates, large and small businesses, entrepreneurs and taxi owners. With fleet sales in the spotlight, here are some tips for potential fleet purchasers.

1 GET A FEEL FOR A DEALERSHIP OR CAR COMPANY’S FLEET DEPARTMENT Vehicle fleet ownership should be the start of a strong relationship between the car brand, the fleet purchaser and the fleet driver. Most car companies and / or

dealerships have dedicated fleet personnel who offer advice and support to potential and existing fleet clients. As a crucial link during the sales and aftersales experience, their job is to ensure satisfied fleet managers and drivers. You’ll want value-for money offerings and excellent service, so go with someone you trust and feel comfortable with.

2 IDENTIFY THE REASON FOR THE FLEET PURCHASE Each fleet purchaser has a different need. For example, a company’s sales and marketing fleet – possibly incentivedriven – may range from entry-level to high-end passenger vehicles. A building and construction

business is likely to be looking at durable transport with maximum load capacity. While there’s a wide variety of hardy single and double cab pickups, I’d be remiss not to highlight the three-quarter ton Nissan NP200 - South Africa’s most popular single cab bakkie – and the Nissan NP300 one-ton Hardbody double cab, both of which offer enviable value-for-money. Taxi owners or companies that provide employee transport will be eyeing minibuses that ensure safety, comfort and reliability. While green-conscious companies will veer towards low- or zero-emission vehicles. And here the Nissan LEAF fully electric vehicle is in a league of its own as the global leader.

3 DETERMINE YOUR PROCUREMENT SPEND Your budget will determine the size of your fleet. With economies of scale at play, vehicle costs are likely to be more competitive the larger the fleet. But as with the retail market, look out for special deals on finance, warranty and service plan options.

4 TAKE OTHER COSTS INTO ACCOUNT As well as weighing up your finance options, bear in mind other costs like insurance, vehicle registration and servicing. While dealerships provide an efficient aftersales service, depending on your fleet size it might be practical to install an in-house service and repair facility, as well as a petrol / diesel pump station. Or, in the case of hybrid and electric vehicles, a battery-charging facility or renewable energy source.

K

5 WEIGH UP THE PROS AND CONS OF FLEET BRANDING Vehicle branding is a great way to give your company exposure and hopefully grow your business. However, it can be a double-edged sword. With your name in full public view, perceptions will depend on a number of factors. For example, a dirty car with tatty decals won’t send a positive message about your brand. Neither will a bashed-up or broken-down APRIL 2019 DIY & INDUSTRIAL TRADE NEWS

car. Not to mention a driver with bad driving habits. So make sure your vehicle is a true brand ambassador, in tune with how you’d like customers to perceive and remember you.

6 FAMILIARISE FLEET DRIVERS WITH CODE OF CONDUCT Driving a fleet vehicle is a privilege, not a right. • Make sure everyone is aware of vehicle fleet company policy • Parameters for individual and company responsibility • Guidelines on procedures in the event of a breakdown or accident • Regular vehicle maintenance and treatment of car. These last two are especially important to ensure a good trade-in value when the time comes. It’s fairly easy to identify a neglected vehicle that has been subjected to some ‘hard’ driving.

7 BE CAUTIOUS WITH PRE-OWNED FLEET VEHICLES On the subject of trade-ins, you may be considering a pre-owned fleet option. As with any second-hand purchase, it can be risky. There’s likely to be high mileage and excessive wear and tear. Vehicles with one owner are generally in better condition than those with multiple owners. But don’t leave it to chance. As well as checking the vehicle’s history and service record, it’s advisable to book a technical inspection with a credible organisation like the Automobile Association (AA).

8 EMBRACE THE FLEET-BUYING EXPERIENCE Whether brand new or pre-owned, a fleet purchase is always exciting. It might be a completely new experience; renewing and / or upgrading your current vehicle fleet; or upscaling or rightsizing your fleet complement to suit the company’s needs. Ultimately, your vehicle fleet will play a key role in the trajectory of your company – and indirectly your chosen auto brand’s too.

ON THE MOVE FLEET MANAGEMENT

Fleet management is important in retail

A myriad of important factors must be understood and controlled for a vehicle fleet to stay within resource and budget parameters.

F

leet Management solutions have traditionally operated within a cost control mind-set, offering companies the ability to optimise their operations and ensure costs are predictable and manageable. In recent years however, the technology underpinning Fleet Management solutions has evolved to become a key point of competitive advantage. Think, for example, of the customer service challenge of online shopping. Leading online retailers not only deliver products to the customer’s door, they do it with flair, style and a high degree of accuracy. The best in the business notify customers, via SMS and email, about every step in the delivery process, and every time they deliver on their promises, they leapfrog more sluggish rivals. The global market is moving more towards keeping cost control in mind as reducing costs will always be a factor when it comes to fleet management, says Andre Ittmann, CEO, Cartrack South Africa. “Yes, there are incredible tools available to streamline logistics and control costs, but these are only half of a fast changing picture. Companies now use Fleet Management tools to boost driver performance and to engage in a powerful way with end customers. Viewed collectively, the tools offered by Fleet Management systems can play a big role in redefining the position of a brand in the market.” At the core logistics level, a Fleet Management system offers a dashboard overview of the key performance aspects of every vehicle. Delivery progress can be plotted against the desired schedule, and it’s possible to view many real time details, such as the location of a particular vehicle, how many kilometres it has covered, what its immediate movements are and the speed it is travelling at. “This is very important information,” says Ittmann. “The raw data can be used, for example, to monitor and proactively develop driver performance. When the company knows how fast drivers are accelerating and how they work the brakes, they can control vital wear and tear costs, such as fuel consumption and tyre usage. They can also work with their drivers to improve performance and safety on the road, which again, is a key tool in managing a vehicle fleet.” An important factor in the increasing strategic relevance of Fleet Management software to businesses is ease of use. Cartrack’s software for example, offers a dashboard lens to customers via a variety of interfaces, from a standard computer browser to a dynamic mobile phone app. The system can be managed by any relevant staff member, no matter where they are in the world. “Say, for example, a theft has occurred, the vehicle can be tracked in real time, including when it crosses APRIL 2019 DIY & INDUSTRIAL TRADE NEWS

international borders. Immediate access to such data is a vital tool in an emergency situation. Equally, the system allows for detailed recreations of accidents and emergency events, if you choose to add on a camera in the vehicle. In complex legal scenarios, this is a wonderful asset,” adds Ittmann. In terms of administration, users can access the logbooks at the touch of a button, while full client reports are always available for download, including data on key variables such as E-Tolls. Crucially, packages can be customised to meet the client’s specific requirements. Customisation also plays a significant role in enabling broad competitive advantage. For some companies safety on the road is a key aspect of the competitive environment. For others, real time communication with customers is the challenge, while others will focus on the secure delivery of fragile items. Regardless, a strong Fleet Management system can be tailored to hone in on the most important areas. “The feedback we get from clients of all sizes is that they got active with Fleet Management initially to reduce costs and make sure their fleet is as productive as possible,” says Ittmann. “Ultimately, a lot these companies have now ended up using the data flow to outperform competitors.” In the online shopping environment for example, companies can use the tracking information to send an SMS to the delivery recipient as the vehicle turns into their street, or office park. This kind of up-tothe-second service clearly differentiates market leaders from the rest of the pack. Ittmann goes on to explain that fleet management tools are spreading beyond the context of the large organisations to be increasingly used by small operations, differently structured fleets and single users. “Drive Vision, which is a Cartrack exclusive offering comprises a primary camera that records video footage with a 120-degree exterior view of the road ahead, plus a secondary driver camera that provides a 160-degree view of the inside of the vehicle cab. Audio is also available. The camera system has a built-in movement sensor, which records events such as speeding, harsh braking, sharp turning and severe acceleration. These are useful to smaller fleet owners as good driver behaviour is crucial to their business’ bottom line”, he says. “At Cartrack, we have an offering for bikes called Bike Track,” he says. One of the features includes a specially designed power management system to avoid discharging the bike battery. The solution provides for exception and alert reporting, plus comprehensive trip and rider behaviour analyses,” says Ittmann.
