WELCOME MESSAGE

autumn leaf_mc_q3 newsletter 3

Dear valued customer, welcome to this, the first, quarterly newsletter from Cranial-8. 


Rather than lament the ending of summer, let's instead celebrate the arrival of Fall.  The early fall months represent a great time to catch up with colleagues and plan for the final quarter of the year.  It is also a good time to get up to speed on the latest developments in your industry.


In this issue you will find news on two exciting product releases from GE, an update on Cranial-8's growing line card and topical discussions impacting the Cranial-8 eco system..

TOPICAL DISCUSSIONS

The Time to Market clock is ticking | Andrew Faulkner

Getting to market ahead of competition should not be another throw-away mantra -
it should be a modus-operandi for all manufacture of electronic products.   
home_clock face 2

Getting to market ahead of competition brings a host of benefits; improved Return on Investment ROI and first mover advantages that include being seen as an innovator and market leader.   

Typically customers show great flexibility in adopting early solutions -even in the presence of failings.  In short early-to-market products often become the de-facto standard by which others follow.

The now incumbent supplier can focus on developing customer relationships, earning customer trust and in incrementally improving the product offering.  Conversely competition are playing catch-up; adding marginal features, dropping price or changing product specification and form factor to fit the new de-facto standard.
