  3. 3. EXECUTIVE.SUMMARYThis document is a Tactical Sales Plan for Malata PC-A1001, a Multi-Touch tablets from Malata, a high tech companyfrom China (belongs to Wanlida Group Co., Ltd.). For selling Malata in Australia in the next 3 years, we considered thefollowing factors: Background and Assumptions – We analysed product features and its geographic areas of sales in Australia (focusing on Sydney and Melbourne). We also made some assumptions that this sales plan based on. Market Assessment - In this part we focus on demand analysis for tablets in Australia market by the end of 2011. PC tablets marketing will continue growing by the end of 2011 with Apple and Android taking 95% of market share and others sharing 5% of the pie. Main competitors are Apple, Samsung, Motorola and Blackberry aiming to 3 main segments which are consumers, professionals and enterprises. Main distribution channels include mortar and brick stores, online stores, catalogue selling and TV Home shopping. Sales Strategy – We choose to sell this product using mortar and brick stores such as Dick Smith, Harvey Norman and JB Hi-Fi. Besides that, we build up a website for it and sell it online using eBay and Amazon. To better compete and approach target customers, we also sell the product in extra channels which are universities and coffee shops. After that, we have a general estimation and calculation of cost and profit of this project for 3 year period. Sales Implementation Plan – In this part, we set specific milestones and checkpoints to implement the project so that we can monitor and control it effectively. To be proactive to any likely risks, we have set contingency plans and the way to avoid the risks at the beginning.We believe that this Tactical Sales Plan is effective and achievable because it based on very careful consideration andresearch about the industry and the market. We believe it will bring profit and will be the good start for our business. 3

  9. 9. PART 2MARKET ASSESSMENT 9
  10. 10. DEMAND.FORECAST Market size & PotentialAustralian research firm IDC (International DataCorporation) has predicted that following therelease of iPad 2, a range of second generationtablets is expected to stimulate an 85% growth inthe Australian tablet market (Rust Report 2011)According to Telsyte, media tablet sales inAustralia would be almost 1.2 million units forcalendar year 2011, driven by continued strongdemand from consumers and business segments(Telsyte 2011)Although IDC research and the empiricalevidence show that the majority of media tabletsare currently embraced as complementary devices,they are eating into consumers’ share of wallet”(Rust Report 2011)IDC’s report titled “Media Tablet Special Report: Australia” also shows that whilst there is astrong intention to purchase a media tablet by the end of 2011 by Australian consumers topurchase media tablets in 2011, with 6 per cent, laptops/notebooks (34.8 per cent) and standarddesktops (27.6 per cent) are still strongly favoured (IDC 2011) 10In general, PC Tablet market in Australia is a potential and growing market
  11. 11. DEMAND.FORECAST Market Share Australian Tablets Market share 5%By the end of 2011, the market leader inAustralia is expected to remain Apple with 60%market share, down from over 90% in 2010. 35% iOSAndroid devices are expected to have 35% market 60% Androidshare in 2011 with Blackberry tablet OS and otherplatforms making up the rest of the market Blackberry and other(Telsyte 2011) platforms According to the above chart, we can see that tablets market in Australia has high level of concentration. The two biggest players (which are iOS and Android OS) take the major part of the pie. Blackberry and other platforms such as Windows and HP are just taking a very small part (5%) of the market. That will be a big challenge to sell Malata A1001 to Australia market, especially when Microsoft is about to introduce its new Windows 8 tablets to Australia in the next few months while Matala is just using Windows 7 11
  12. 12. COMPETIROR.ANALYSISThere are many tablet brands in Australia market at the moment. However, there are just a few operating systems forall of them including (but not limited to): iOS, Android OS, Windows 7 Starter, Palm Web OS, and QNX (for theBlackBerry tablet). The following figure shows the advantages of each Operating System. Source: Frost and Sullivan, 2011 12
  13. 13. COMPETIROR.ANALYSIS The followings are some major competitors in media tablets market in Australia Apple is the biggest competitors in the market. IDC expects Apple to maintain a 70-80% share of the worldwide market and continue to dominate the Australian market. Its competitive advantages are strong and unique Operating System iOS, good design and innovation. Samsung Galaxy is considered the strongest competitor of Apple in international and Australia market. Samsung is forecasted to take more than 30% market share in 2011 in Australia. Samsung is expected to follow with a 10.1 in. Galaxy Tab with Android 3.0 Honeycomb later this year with many outstanding functions. Motorola Xoom is also a worthy competitor in function, Like the Samsung Galaxy, the Motorola Xoom will also run on the Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system. The Xoom comes with two video capable cameras and is another anticipated addition to the tablet market. It offers high processing power and improved gaming capability. BlackBerry is also carving a name in the tablet market with the release of the PlayBook in April this year. The PlayBook will support both Android and the Java based apps that currently run on BlackBerry phones, giving users access to an extensive range of applications. The PlayBook smaller and slimmer than the iPad 2 Other vendors and designs such as Smaller players such as Hewlett Packard, Asus, Toshiba, Microsoft and Dell are also on track to release their own tablet devices in the second half of 2011. Many of these products will be more competitive in function and price. One differentiation path that some vendors are likely to take is to focus on specific market segments, such as commercial. While benefitting from unique product positioning, they are likely to address a smaller overall market and will need to be competitive with devices from 13 Apple and others.
  14. 14. COMPETIROR.ANALYSISIn general, besides Apple, the strongest competitors with significant competitive advantages anddifferences, other competitors in tablets market in Australia have an extremely fierce competitionenvironment. They are all strong and experienced competitors that are quite similar in functions,designs and prices. On the other hand, Malata is running on Microsoft OS that is considers not aseffective as others, therefore, it would be tough to sell Malata in Australia market,However, Apple are losing its market share to other competitors (from nearly 90% in 2010 to 75%in first half 2011), it means customers now pay more attention to other brands, not just Apple.They are also more price sensitive than before. That is a good sign for Malata to enter Australiamarket. 14
  15. 15. CUSTOMER.ANALYSISMain customers for PC tablets are described as follows: Source: Frost & Sullivan 2011 15
  16. 16. CUSTOMER.ANALYSISConsumer market: They are individual from all age. They may bestudents who need convenient and small devices to bring toeverywhere.

For this market, professional functions such as graphic, storage and memory are more important to them.Enterprises: Telsyte estimates that around 20,000 Australianbusinesses have purchased at least one media tablet for theirorganisation so far. This is a young and new market that is ignoredby many big competitors.

They can store their lectures in the tablets and read iteverywhere at any time they want. They can also getconnected with their friends and their lecturers whenneeded. With tablet PC, long distance studying will be muchmore easy.Those customers are all quite price sensitive. Therefore, low price may be a competitiveadvantage of Malata as its functions is quite similar to other PC tablets 23

One of them is sending the product to experts to review.CNET is a common way to get the productreviewed. CNET editors will give theircomments about pros and cons of theproduct. This will help it similar tocustomers.Blogs is another way to get the productsreviewed. We will need to send our productto the owners of the blogs, who are hightech experts, for getting their commentsabout the products.

In which, Apple and Android will takeabout 80% of market share. Blackberry and others only get 5% ofmarket share (about 60,000 units). In our estimation, the maximumunits of Malata tablet that could be sold in year 1 will be about 1000units. Due to limitation of capital, we decide to import 700 units forthe first year.•In Year 0, we have $300,000 of capital, we do not need to pay any labour and operating expenses except forMarketing. We will spend $280,000 dollars to buy stocks from China, $3,500 tablet cases for promotion andabout $16,500 for marketing activities such as product reviews, creating and running product websites,preparing the product manual in English, and promoting our website on other well known websites inAustralia.•In the end of Year 1, we have to pay employee salary, commissions, channel cost and buy stocks for year 2.Marketing expenses will be decreased as customers are familiar with the products. The number of productsneeded for year 2 is increased in comparison with Year 1.•In the end of Year 2, we have the same expenses as year 1, marketing expenses keeps going down. Thenumber of products needed for year 3 is increased in comparison with Year 2.•Sales of the products should be ended in the end of year 3 as there would be new products that have superiorfunctions. In Year 3, we do not need to buy anymore products. And the whole amount of Sales in year 3 iscompensation for loss in year 1 and year 2. 33

  39. 39. CONCLUSIONSSelling Malata product is profitable but not much (NPV $7,632) due to the followingreasons: Limited capital (about $300,000) Limited market share (nearly 1%) Wholesales price is too high ($400). That leads to high retailing price ($700) and low profit margin. Limited product competitive advantages. That causes a lot of expenses for promotion (free cases), advertising (online and review), channels (brick and mortar stores, online stores, universities and cafes) and customer services. Limitation in product functions lead to the narrowness in target customers (consumer market only). 39
