Archaic plumbing was still common in many homes


Showers in the UK were plagued with problem Gravity fed :
cold-water tank / cistern sat in the roof, while a separate boiler and cylinder were needed to store hot water in a nearby airing cupboard Poor to low water pressure Frequent fluctuations in pressure

Type of Shower
Electric Shower

Information
Does not require hot water supply
Results in bulky box on the wall Low flow rate Requires both hot and cold water supply Requires additional pump to address pressure problems Installation typically requires excavation of bathroom Requires both hot and cold water supply Results in bulky box on the wall Regarded as less reliable than a mixer-shower and pump combination

Mixer Shower

Power Shower

Why customers disliked their shower ?


Poor pressure

Varying temperature
Shower often broke down
Hard to turn valves, leaky seals, and worn-out showers

Uninformed about shower


Brand awareness was low

Aqualisa market share ranked it number two in mixing valves and number three in the overall UK shower market.

But, now their sales is decreasing.

MARKET SITUATION
SWOT ANALYSIS

- Unfamiliar product to plumbers - Stigma regarding past failures with electronic showers - Bad recent customer service reputation - Sales force focused on servicing existing accounts (90% of time)

- Better water pressure and temperature control - Safer and easier for users (no sticking hand in hot water) - One touch control with light indicator - Easy to install : Junior apprentice can perform install as well - Day and half installation time saving per install (average) - Patent on Aqualisa Quartz design - Strong brand recognition - High quality product : strong engineering in design

- Current shower systems are bulky - Excavating required for current shower models - Bad water pressure and temperature control with current shower models - Much manual adjusting required with current shower models

- Competition catching-up on quality and technology - Aqualisa Quartz perceived as too expensive - Patent expiration - Cannibalization of existing shower product models

LESSON LEARNED

It is not easy to make and market products for the first time. There are many things that must be considered by a company in create new product. Not only innovate new technology but also research their customer profiles and ways of marketing. Companies also should not be afraid to pay extra costs to support the marketing of new product. All of these actions is expected to increase the sales of new product.

By support the marketing of its own product, company will gain extra value, which is one of the most important thing from a product : consumers brand awareness. High brand awareness will bring good number of profit and sales. Each company should also pay attention to each type of consumers and customers. Different consumers will need different treatment and service, thats why its important to know their profile before.
