This week, as you know, I’m giving you examples of business assets you can build to dominate your competition.
Today’s asset is Systems.
Most franchise organizations (e.g., Subway, McDonalds, etc.) have made significant investments in systems in areas such as taking orders, producing products, handling customer complaints, etc.
These systems make it easier and less expensive to hire and train employees and better service customers. This makes it harder for others to compete against them.
Likewise, I know many companies who have built customized software systems that allow them to perform faster, cheaper, and more consistently than their competitors.
What systems can you build at your company?

Previous Question: What was toy company Mattel’s first product?
Answer: The first product that toy company Mattel came out with was picture frames.
Mattel launched in 1945. Ruth and Elliot Handler and Harold “Matt” Matson started the company out of a garage workshop in Southern California. The first Mattel products were picture frames, but Elliot soon developed a side business in dollhouse furniture made from picture frame scraps. Due to the success of the doll furniture, the company’s emphasis was changed to toys.
Mattel is another example of a company significantly changing its business after launching. The key is to get your business launched, and then listen to your customers and what’s working.
