A First Impression Means Presentation Is Everything




An absolutely worthless yet theoretically phlisophically possibly sslightly interesting post comparing the huge differences in the manner and style in which four bus manufacturing companies in three different countries, Sweden, India and the Ukraine, produced promotional presentations for the same product and topic and how the financial and cultural differences influenced the end results in their attempt to show off the respective companies attributes and contributions in the very best light. It actually boils down to how much India's presentation really really sucks compared to those from the other countries. Really sucks. Kinda sad.

      My favorite was the 'Record Room'. How in the hell they find anything in there is beyond me.

  • Volvo Founded in 1927
    SCANIA Founded in 1891

    So, just looking at the first two, were talking over 100 years more experience, whereas HARI was founded only 24yrs ago. :/

    I suspect that has more to do with it than any "cultural" difference, wouldn't you? This isn't a cultural difference, its a difference in business experience.

    • @o0Tao0o Partly but not entirely. Experience before 24 yrs is not all that convincing. I'm sure bus building processes today resemble nothing like they did 24 yrs ago.

      If you were a city manager tasked with spending $50 million in bus infrastructure, would you bet your job on Hari? I sure as hell wouldn't. They just don't look like they could put together a reliable product they could back.

      I mean, unless it was like Detroit where it wouldn't matter. So what if they get shitty buses? Wou More..

    • @Saros While i understand what you're trying to say, the point of this video was to show "cultural" differences with a view to "First impressions".

      After only being in Business for 24 years, then compared the processes of businesses that have over 100 years experience in "First Impressions".... What the fuck would any reasonable person expect?!

    • @o0Tao0o Yeah, I see what you're saying too. But it doesn't take 24 years to learn appropriate international marketing standards especially if you know your competition.

      I guess the most pertinent information is, are these videos that someone as a buyer received in a *sixth* location, requested for vendor qualification, or are these videos lifted off their websites and matched end to end.

      Because if Hari is competing within its own market ONLY, that may well be perfectly adequate. Maybe ALL More..

    • @Saros Yes it does. It takes much longer than 24yrs.

      As you said yourself, who in the far west would buy them? Of course they are competing in their own market, every business does by definition.

      If they had to go head to head with the likes of SCANIA, their business wouldn't last 3 years!

  • Wtf, some kind of sick butchered documentary about Volvo buses. If you watched the entire video you are now a zombie.

  • As a photographer, Hari's visual presentation is absolutely appalling. I should send them a proposal, LOL.

  • If costs are the bottom line, I'd take a chance on a company that had cheap plastic picnic chairs in their R&D room. I'd wager the buses made in India are probably significantly less expensive. The only thing that would be of concern would be quality control and supply of replacement parts. That's probably the primary reason an engineer would not want the Indian buses; not necessarily the cheesy video.

  • Is that last bus company on Gilligan's Island ? Do they have built in air fresheners to help with the BO ?
