p. ford (PS4PW) [43] Well this is

p. ford (PS4PW) [45] what I've done, I done ... about seventeen of them.
b. singh (PS4PR) [46] Right.
p. ford (PS4PW) [47] Well we done about seventeen of them ... but mainly on the super mail side but we stick to the one sort of with
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [cough]
b. singh (PS4PR) [48] Yeah.
p. ford (PS4PW) [49] Erm ... on the first one it's the before nine service ... er basically
b. singh (PS4PR) [50] Yeah.
p. ford (PS4PW) [51] a benefit for the customer that it is a guarantee before nine.
[52] Erm ... it is obviously beneficial particularly for banks and financial institutions to use
b. singh (PS4PR) [53] In what way?
p. ford (PS4PW) [54] Well they start work quite early and they can get cheques processed erm ... situations like that.
b. singh (PS4PR) [55] Yeah.
[56] So what
p. ford (PS4PW) [57] And then
b. singh (PS4PR) [58] what, what's the benefit then?
[59] Just, what is the benefit.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [60] It's there at the start of a new day.
b. singh (PS4PR) [61] See
p. ford (PS4PW) [62] It's there somehow.
b. singh (PS4PR) [63] that's the benefit?
[64] Describing the feature is only describing the feature.
p. ford (PS4PW) [65] Mhm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [66] Before means, nine, means your getting it there before nine you said and er, that means it's there nice and early.
[67] [laughing] That's describing a feature [] .
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [68] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [69] The benefit of getting it there early ... and ... a little leap word which takes you from a feature to a benefit
p. ford (PS4PW) [70] Which means
b. singh (PS4PR) [71] Well done.
[72] Which means that ... so you have to make
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [73] [sighing] Ah ah [] .
b. singh (PS4PR) [74] it into sentences by a little leap word
p. ford (PS4PW) [75] Actually I've got it on here but I just don't like saying it all the time.
[76] I've got a
b. singh (PS4PR) [77] Ah ah!
p. ford (PS4PW) [78] I've got it on top of bank though.
b. singh (PS4PR) [79] Okay.
p. ford (PS4PW) [80] Right.
b. singh (PS4PR) [81] Before nine
p. summers (PS4PV) [82] You just wrote that though.
p. ford (PS4PW) [83] Eh?
p. summers (PS4PV) [84] You just wrote that.
p. ford (PS4PW) [85] Yeah.
p. summers (PS4PV) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [86] Which means you, that you can start ... what was your words Jenny?
j. fowles (PS4PU) [87] So you can start the working day.
b. singh (PS4PR) [88] means that it's ready for the start ... of the working day ... giving you a
p. ford (PS4PW) [89] Eh?
b. singh (PS4PR) [90] that's the real benefit.
[91] Alright.
p. ford (PS4PW) [cough]
b. singh (PS4PR) [92] There at the start of the working day, giving you, you've gotta say that next step ... and tell them, okay, if you can say so what, you haven't told them the benefit.
[93] Okay?
[94] So what?
[95] Let's see how many so whats you can come up with after this.
[96] Okay.
[97] Go on.
[98] So what's the next one?
p. ford (PS4PW) [99] Again, before ten thirty it is a guaranteed service before ten thirty ... which is a benefit.
b. singh (PS4PR) [100] No.
[101] Before ten thirty guaranteed is a feature.
[102] It is built in by design.
[103] We build that in.
[104] If you build it in by design, like we build this in
p. ford (PS4PW) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [105] and the design ... of that was so that it will stay on, built in by design.
[106] And should stay on.
[107] Which means that ... what did we say yesterday?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [108] Right.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [109] And therefore helps with your presentation simply.
[110] That's the benefit.
[111] Right.
[112] So, the fact that it's guaranteed that, we've actually built that in by design which makes it a feature.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [113] Mm mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [114] What he, what the customer gets out of that is what?
[115] So
p. ford (PS4PW) [116] Well, on, on the ten, ten thirty one
b. singh (PS4PR) [117] Yeah.
p. ford (PS4PW) [118] I've put it very similar to that of the nine o'clock one ... really.
b. singh (PS4PR) [119] Which it , it is.
[120] It's still
p. ford (PS4PW) [121] Yeah I've I
b. singh (PS4PR) [122] the elements of time really, yeah?
p. ford (PS4PW) [123] That's it.
[124] It's just cos I , I couldn't do a lot more about that one.
b. singh (PS4PR) [125] What other things , what other things other than giving them actually
(PS4PP) [126] Cheaper.
[127] They're paying less
p. ford (PS4PW) [128] Well it's , it's an option
(PS4PP) [129] and they might
p. ford (PS4PW) [130] as well isn't it?
[131] They got an option.
(PS4PP) [132] sometimes get it before
j. gibson (PS4PT) [133] Nine.
(PS4PP) [134] nine.
[135] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [136] It gives them, what does, what does options give you?
p. ford (PS4PW) [137] A choice.
j. fowles (PS4PU) [138] A choice.
b. singh (PS4PR) [139] It's choice, and I feel I'm, I'm able to choose ... what does that make me feel?
(PS4PP) [140] Good.
p. ford (PS4PW) [...]
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [141] In charge.
b. singh (PS4PR) [142] In charge.
[143] Can I use the word control now then?
[144] Yeah?
[145] You're saying in charge is sort of like, I am in charge which is like this.
p. ford (PS4PW) [146] It is if you make the customer feel they are literally
b. singh (PS4PR) [147] That's right.
j. fowles (PS4PU) [148] Yeah.
p. ford (PS4PW) [149] in charge of their
b. singh (PS4PR) [150] Now
p. ford (PS4PW) [151] service.
j. fowles (PS4PU) [152] They like that.
b. singh (PS4PR) [153] I like to know what's happening.
[154] Yeah.
[155] Adrian
(PS4PP) [156] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [157] said look Ka Kath, gotta get to Plymouth tonight, I need to know.
[158] Cos you, here he needs to know as well, don't you?
[159] You sit here today knowing that something's gonna be done.
[160] Because it couldn't wait until lunchtime and that, that's perfectly understandable because he wants to feel in control of what's going to happen to some degree, rather than just be at the mercy of someone else's position.
[161] He wants to be part, you know, influence that decision, and that's important to all of us isn't it?
[162] To know where we stand.
[163] You know people say, I like to know where we stand.
[164] I like to know whe , know where I stand.
[165] People love the feeling of being in control.
[166] And the before nine guarantees, just give them the time factor again.
[167] Er, that enables that they choose how much time they need, er because it, do I need to go that time or that time?
[168] And that gives them control.
[169] And as you say ... it's one of the best things that they want.
[170] Because, when you subcontract it out, has anybody changed hairdressers?
[171] Or changed banks?
[172] Use a service where they've changed before now?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [173] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [174] Was there an element of risk involved?
[175] Were you a bit concerned at the time making the decision?
[176] Worrying about what might happen?
[177] And everybo , when you contract out something, when you ask someone else to do something for you.
[178] Ooh oh!
[179] There's just that ... doubt.
[180] Obviously, repeat experiences, good ones, gives you peace of mind.
[181] But what I'm saying is, it's this that you really want.
[182] And becau , that's one of the most valuable benefits you can give a customer ... time and control.
[183] Any more?
p. ford (PS4PW) [184] Yeah the er, the noon one.
b. singh (PS4PR) [185] Mhm.
p. ford (PS4PW) [186] You're fo , guaranteed
b. singh (PS4PR) [187] Oh yeah.
p. ford (PS4PW) [188] before noon.
b. singh (PS4PR) [189] Oh sorry.
[190] The noon, yeah.
[191] Again, we come into ... which means that ... what?
p. ford (PS4PW) [192] Well it's, I put down on here that er, it's a benefit for customers that possibly their shops close half day where they can have collections, er sorry deliveries in the morning ... so that they've got benefit of having deliveries A M
b. singh (PS4PR) [193] Right.
p. ford (PS4PW) [194] only.
b. singh (PS4PR) [195] Well done.
[196] Again, we're back to ... being involved
p. ford (PS4PW) [197] Choice, yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [198] and choice.
[199] Well done.
[200] Yeah.
p. ford (PS4PW) [201] And als , erm ... and on them three services is what we said a few moments ago, they got the choice of three different options.
b. singh (PS4PR) [202] Right.
p. ford (PS4PW) [203] So that the
b. singh (PS4PR) [204] Really , you're giving them time and control and it's up to you, it's an alternative choice on the whole thing.
p. ford (PS4PW) [205] I dunno whether a price would be a feature or a benefit.
[206] I mean it's gotta be
b. singh (PS4PR) [207] I think
p. ford (PS4PW) [208] a benefit
b. singh (PS4PR) [209] Yes.
p. ford (PS4PW) [210] to them.
b. singh (PS4PR) [211] Be , yes certainly.
[212] But obviously people always receives the choice doesn't it?
[213] If, well it's a value judgement they make isn't it?
[214] But I don't think selling price saving is a, I don't think putting money up front first is a good idea.
p. ford (PS4PW) [215] No.
p. ford (PS4PW) [216] Because if you put it up front first, what do we now discuss everything around?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [217] Money.
b. singh (PS4PR) [218] Money.
p. ford (PS4PW) [219] That's right , yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [220] D'ya see what I mean?
j. worrow (PS4PS) [221] That dictates.
b. singh (PS4PR) [222] That's right.
[223] What I'm saying is, you always assume that that is people's ... er albeit, which it is obviously isn't it?
[224] But
j. worrow (PS4PS) [225] You're detracting from the real issue of their needs.
b. singh (PS4PR) [226] That's right.
[227] That's right.
[228] Why, I mean it might not be worth anything, I mean, you know, it's a value, you can't, you can't start influencing them about money to early, because it's the value benefit of that ... that they're really looking at.
[229] So I would keep money well out of it.
p. ford (PS4PW) [230] Last thing innit, really?
b. singh (PS4PR) [231] Yeah.
[232] Because when he makes out ... mu ,bi how much is this worth?
[233] Is what, is where the money thing is coming in ... not, how much he saves on the level of service.
[234] And then he makes a value judgement.
[235] Is it worth it?
[236] No.
[237] You get a taxi sometimes don't you?
[238] To places.
[239] You don't have to go in your own transport.
[240] What's the deciding factor?
[241] Are there special taxis?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [242] Mhm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [243] No.
[244] Is it worth it sometimes?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [245] Yeah it is.
b. singh (PS4PR) [246] Would you use it as an everyday mode of transport?
[247] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [248] Mm mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [249] You see what I mean?
[250] Some people do.
[251] Some people get taxis everywhere.
[252] Do their shopping ... with a taxi [...] .
[253] Because for some people ... there may be a value judgement made about it.
[254] I don't know.
[255] But what I'm saying is, is that everybody makes their own value judgement and be careful that you're not making, imposing your value onto them.
[256] Th they're free to judge.
[257] Yeah?
[258] Next one?
p. ford (PS4PW) [259] Saturday ... Saturday delivery.
b. singh (PS4PR) [260] Right.
p. ford (PS4PW) [261] Erm, again it's an option for them to have if need be.
[262] Er, but I've put down here that erm ... but possibly some retail outlets ... although the Saturday is the busiest day of their week they might important merchandise ... to arrive particularly at, you know, Jaeger shops, expensive shops ... where like the price of the item warrants paying a Saturday surcharge.
b. singh (PS4PR) [263] Alright.
p. ford (PS4PW) [264] So certain areas can have delivery Saturday.
b. singh (PS4PR) [265] What are the things apart from the value of the item ones in erm ... you're right ... Phil, by the way I'm not saying you're wrong.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [266] The urgency of the package.
p. ford (PS4PW) [267] Convenience.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [268] If a restaurant needed a microwave cos they're open all weekend [...] they couldn't wait till Monday.
b. singh (PS4PR) [269] Well what about erm ... working weeks ... for industry and ... commerce.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [270] A lot of
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [271] Six
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [272] a lot of factories
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [273] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [274] do open on a Saturday
j. worrow (PS4PS) [275] That's right.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [276] and they don't actually do collections, they don't actually do, do any production.
b. singh (PS4PR) [277] What do they do?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [278] They do all the
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [279] Cleaning.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [280] clean up on a Saturday.
b. singh (PS4PR) [281] Right.
p. ford (PS4PW) [282] I've put that down.
[283] Mhm.
[284] Put that
b. singh (PS4PR) [285] Right.
p. ford (PS4PW) [286] down.
b. singh (PS4PR) [287] Mm mm mm.
p. ford (PS4PW) [288] Cos
b. singh (PS4PR) [289] That's what we want.
[290] Obviously, it's again, it's control so, so ... a Saturday delivery
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [clears throat]
b. singh (PS4PR) [291] could give you the benefit of erm ... reduce down time.
[292] Have you heard that expression?
[293] When, if a production line is going and the production breaks down ... but er ... if we can reduce our time, has anybody worked in a ... in a, er, a co , an industrial environment on, what sort of cost saving could you
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [294] Well
b. singh (PS4PR) [295] say er, a [...] production of say two hours would be where you worked, would you know that time?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [296] Er er
b. singh (PS4PR) [297] On a production line?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [298] choo choo choo choo choo choo
b. singh (PS4PR) [299] Er, to give some, but none of us have worked in that environment and it's not something we're familiar with.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [300] To be honest it's really difficult to put a cost to that.
b. singh (PS4PR) [301] Hundreds or thousands.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [302] Er, thousands.
b. singh (PS4PR) [303] Thousands.
[304] I mean we're talking big numbers an hour aren't we really?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [305] Yeah.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [306] In the steel industry we'll probably
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [307] I mean
j. worrow (PS4PS) [308] talk in terms of both.
b. singh (PS4PR) [309] Tens of thousands
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [310] per hour?
j. worrow (PS4PS) [311] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [312] Terry?
[313] Yeah?
[314] So what I'm saying is, is getting a delivery ... if you can't get something there in time ... I mean, it may mean that you know in advance that you need something done and you can deliver in a normal working week, but maybe it's inconvenient in a normal working week.
[315] Maybe, there's nobody really there, maybe it's engineer brought on site.
p. ford (PS4PW) [316] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [317] Because you're not, although you're using the ... power space, the power er er of the production line or equipment, they might not be, that might not be what you're making, you're just using that kit and you need the supplier of that kit to bring an engineer in and you need to get a part of it, but you want control of that rather than just waiting on a supplier to do it for you.
[318] Yeah?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [319] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [320] And that reduces our time.
[321] We are now talking ... a few over there.
[322] It may be making
a. bond (PS4PX) [323] Quite ... quite often you tend to find in industry where ... er, if you're dealing with mechanical bits and pieces
b. singh (PS4PR) [324] Mhm.
a. bond (PS4PX) [325] if you've got one bit that can't work without another bit, and the bits can be relatively cheap, say may only be about twenty P a bit, but if the twenty P bit doesn't arrive to work with the other bit
b. singh (PS4PR) [326] One of the
a. bond (PS4PX) [327] then it's worth [laughing] twenty thousand [] .
b. singh (PS4PR) [328] I suppose it'll be [...] into your [...] .
b. singh (PS4PR) [329] [...] .
[330] Well said Andrew.
[331] Do you know what this is?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [332] Mm.
a. bond (PS4PX) [333] Well that's a bulb, you need one without the other, so ... if that doesn't arrive so you're knackered.
b. singh (PS4PR) [334] What do you reckon it's used for ... that?
[335] What do you reckon it's used for?
[336] That sort of thing.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [337] Probably used for machinery [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [338] Yeah.
[339] If I looked on one of your er ... account ... entries, it would probably say ... fastening.
[340] Now to me, what's a fastening to you?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [341] Zip.
b. singh (PS4PR) [342] A zip.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [343] Zip.
b. singh (PS4PR) [344] Mm, yeah.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [345] A button.
b. singh (PS4PR) [346] A button.
[347] Yeah.
[348] But fastening is a complete industry.
[349] It's how we've, on the actual er vehicles ... there is actual metal fastenings that's holding the whole trailer together.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [350] Rivets.
b. singh (PS4PR) [351] Yeah.
[352] Rivets, or fastenings.
[353] Right?
[354] This'd probably be used for ... a construction of some sort I would imagine.
[355] Would you?
[356] ... Maybe er
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [357] Bolting tasks.
b. singh (PS4PR) [358] Bo , holding machinery through er a base of some sort.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [359] Yeah.
[360] Some, I mean ... it's the sort of item that people probably buy hundreds of to hold items down with or construct something, er er put something together right?
[361] How much do you reckon it's worth?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [362] Not, not a lot.
b. singh (PS4PR) [363] Be interesting , ha?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [364] About four pound.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [365] I don't think it will be but
b. singh (PS4PR) [366] Four pound.
[367] Which bit's worth more than the other two?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [368] The bolt is.
b. singh (PS4PR) [369] Yeah.
[370] Do you
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [371] Either.
b. singh (PS4PR) [372] reckon they sell them like that?
[373] D'ya think they ... some people buy ... cos they need more ... oops ... because they need more of these than these at some time?
b. singh (PS4PR) [374] No.
b. singh (PS4PR) [375] Or, they maybe replacing some of these but they got plenty of these, or they're replacing some of these but they've got plenty of these?
[376] Yeah?
[377] I reckon that you'd probably buy those cheaper than this item because of the raw materials would you say?
j. worrow (PS4PS) [378] Yep.
b. singh (PS4PR) [379] I mean
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [380] Plus that's a lot, lot smaller.
b. singh (PS4PR) [381] They probably come in sets, yeah?
[382] Or people order them together, yeah?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [clears throat]
b. singh (PS4PR) [383] If you were ordering hundreds ... and hundreds of these would you put, express them through a parcel delivery service?
p. ford (PS4PW) [384] No.
b. singh (PS4PR) [385] Someone else here.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [386] Well probably not, no.
b. singh (PS4PR) [387] Would you probably ,
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [388] Well no.
b. singh (PS4PR) [389] how d'ya reckon people buy these?
[390] How are they delivered?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [391] At a time.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [392] Box.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [393] Box. [phone rings]
b. singh (PS4PR) [394] They probably get them on pallets and stuff like that.
[395] ... Tell them to ring back?
j. worrow (PS4PS) [396] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [397] And er [phone rings]
b. singh (PS4PR) [398] so, if I was to walk into the place that was selling these
j. worrow (PS4PS) [399] [on telephone] Hello. []
b. singh (PS4PR) [400] what sort of picture have you got of the environment I'm in?
j. worrow (PS4PS) [401] She will call you back.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [402] Industries.
b. singh (PS4PR) [403] It's in a heavy industrial warehouses, they're, they're, they're
j. worrow (PS4PS) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [404] they're probably pressing these out at quite a rate of knots aren't they?
j. worrow (PS4PS) [405] It's ... er Bob student they've asked to interrupt the [...] .
b. singh (PS4PR) [406] Oh!
[407] Oh well I apologise for that then.
p. ford (PS4PW) [408] You'll need a [...] then won't you?
b. singh (PS4PR) [409] Shall we go up?
[410] Apologise for this.
[411] [on telephone] Hello [] .
[412] You can carry on.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [413] Where were we?
[414] Where were we?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
p. ford (PS4PW) [415] Construction engineering manufacturing.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [416] Construction engineering.
[417] Oh, well I think we've got to the point haven't we, where these are probably cheaper than the bolts.
[418] And they're
b. singh (PS4PR) [419] Hello.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [420] they bolt like this in pairs
b. singh (PS4PR) [421] Hello?
[422] How did you get
j. worrow (PS4PS) [423] as, as a pair.
b. singh (PS4PR) [424] then [...] ?
j. worrow (PS4PS) [425] but what tends to happen?
[426] Probably if you'd brought something from M F I.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [427] You got one missing.
p. ford (PS4PW) [428] Missing.
[429] You got one missing.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [430] You got, you know.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [431] Yeah.
[432] Yeah.
j. fowles (PS4PU) [433] Yeah.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [434] And what usually goes missing?
j. fowles (PS4PU) [435] The bolt.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [...]
j. worrow (PS4PS) [436] Nearly always the nuts.
j. fowles (PS4PU) [437] Mm.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [clears throat]
j. worrow (PS4PS) [438] So er, what we've got is a situation where somebody's ordered maybe a couple of thousand of these
j. gibson (PS4PT) [439] But no nuts.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [440] but they want, no, they've got the nuts as well.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
j. worrow (PS4PS) [441] But inevitably they've been sort of thrown in a corner and people have fiddled around with them like I've fiddled around with this and we find we got what, twenty or thirty of these missing.
[442] Now, we're talking about a totally different situation.
[443] The weight is different ... the numbers are
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [clears throat]
j. worrow (PS4PS) [444] significantly less ... and so you might well consider ... the need to use this means
j. fowles (PS4PU) [clears throat]
j. worrow (PS4PS) [445] we, can't use them as you were saying earlier Adrian, yeah we can't use one part without the other.
a. bond (PS4PX) [446] Yeah.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [447] It is necessary.
[448] So, this now becomes very urgent.
[449] And so we might well Express these then or even send erm
a. bond (PS4PX) [450] I suppose for the construction industry you're then looking at
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [clears throat]
a. bond (PS4PX) [451] perhaps when you po produce like the channel tunnel and things
j. worrow (PS4PS) [452] Yep.
a. bond (PS4PX) [453] like that, where it's labour intensive that you're paying people maybe thirty, forty, fifty pound a hour
j. worrow (PS4PS) [454] That's right.
[455] And if they're sitting there
j. fowles (PS4PU) [456] Yeah, that's right, yeah.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [457] on their backsides waiting for nuts
a. bond (PS4PX) [458] [...] , you know
j. worrow (PS4PS) [459] Yep.
a. bond (PS4PX) [460] then it's ... not just the intrinsic value of the items themselves
j. worrow (PS4PS) [461] Yep.
a. bond (PS4PX) [462] It's the [...]
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [463] That's a consequential loss.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [464] In fact you could in
a. bond (PS4PX) [465] in [...]
j. worrow (PS4PS) [466] yeah in fact that's a fir , that's a very good example you see, because in that situation you might well pay more for the carriage than the value of the item
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [467] Yeah.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [468] because of the other things that you're losing, er guys sitting
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [469] Mm mm.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [470] on their backsides
a. bond (PS4PX) [471] Overtime
j. worrow (PS4PS) [472] getting paid whatever it is.
a. bond (PS4PX) [473] and cost , overheads.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [474] O , other machinery maybe, maybe you're burning electricity unnecessarily because of er having to keep
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [475] To stay warm.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [476] compressors and things running.
[477] Allsorts of costs may well be impinging on this.
[478] So you find yourself ... maybe paying well over the price of the value of the item
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [479] Mm mm.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [480] just to get it there because it's urgent.
[481] Think of any other examples?
p. ford (PS4PW) [482] Well clothing might have said, important merchandise, clothing
j. worrow (PS4PS) [483] Yep.
p. summers (PS4PV) [484] In a place I used to
(PS4PP) [485] Eyes.
p. summers (PS4PV) [486] work
j. worrow (PS4PS) [clears throat]
p. summers (PS4PV) [487] at least I think at work
(PS4PP) [488] operation Pete is it? [laugh]
j. worrow (PS4PS) [489] What, what was that Carly?
(PS4PP) [490] Eyes.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [491] Yeah.
[492] Course, yeah.
(PS4PP) [laugh]
p. summers (PS4PV) [493] Mo
j. worrow (PS4PS) [494] Organs.
p. summers (PS4PV) [495] Most products used in er manufacturing, whether it's in pharmaceuticals, food, industry, er all products that rely on, you know being there on time
j. worrow (PS4PS) [496] Yeah.
p. summers (PS4PV) [497] to meet, meet that kind of [...] .
(PS4PP) [498] I mean, even deadlines isn't it?
[499] Magazine
j. worrow (PS4PS) [500] Yep.
(PS4PP) [501] deadlines.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [502] well my wife's in the rag trade ... and ... this morning she's got er, a fashion show starting, and I'll bet you, I don't know this, but I'll bet you at least two of her manufacturers ... will have sent her samples to put in that show ... which probably will arrive at nine o'clock this morning.
[503] Now how they're gonna send them I don't know, but I can assure you they will send them in a hurry.
[504] Cos they were probably putting buttons on, or doing the last stitching
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [505] Last night.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [506] last night.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [507] That's it.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [508] Mm.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [509] Now it isn't,th the value it doesn't matter there.
[510] What they're doing is they're sending it so that somebody will place orders.
[511] And they could find themselves with, you know, somebody asking for a thousand of an item ... and it's well worth their while therefore, spending a bit of money getting it there.
b. singh (PS4PR) [512] That was Adrian's, also, that was Adrian's point.
[513] Exactly Adrian.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [514] Yep.
b. singh (PS4PR) [515] And this is when you've been on the receiving end of it.
[516] Now, some of us haven't.
[517] I've never worked where I've had to get materials together and ... you know, sort things out.
[518] I've worked in advertising.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [519] You see it in the crisp industry, they're all
b. singh (PS4PR) [520] Yes.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [521] they're all
b. singh (PS4PR) [522] well
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [523] No salted crisps.
b. singh (PS4PR) [524] We were
j. worrow (PS4PS) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [525] well to be fair, first i
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [526] Times I got that in.
b. singh (PS4PR) [527] ha , how can I say, what,whe when you're talking about fa , I mean fast moving consumer good are fast
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [528] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [529] moving off the shelves and into the shop and, what we would do was erm ... deli people now do er, stock an order by computer and, and people like Sainsburys were doing that in the seventies, you know, and they would actually work over ... er work on erm ... data erm, from their computer ... and order er erm ... you know, okay, they'd be an event at the weekend or something and they'd, they'd of, increase it or something, but they would technically work out exactly what the throughput of certain items were.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [530] And it goes through the till now doesn't it?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [531] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [532] Well, yes, they have a comput
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [533] yes they have the computer software.
[534] In my, in my day probably someone did it a little bit off that, different
j. worrow (PS4PS) [535] Maybe.
b. singh (PS4PR) [536] but the, but the proce , the, er the, the whole thing works on the same principal but now they're doing it without, with less effort.
[537] Now what I'm saying is, is the retail trade or the sharp end of th , you know,i it's, it's very much, it's staying alive.
[538] If you over stock, you're dead!
a. bond (PS4PX) [539] You know I mentioned
b. singh (PS4PR) [540] Yes.
a. bond (PS4PX) [541] the manufacturing point, from that end, not from the end- user to get the products, to, to the retail
b. singh (PS4PR) [542] Yeah.
a. bond (PS4PX) [543] outlets, I meant that [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [544] Ye , you're probably right.
[545] But I mean to be fair we used to we, warehouse ... thousands of tons of potatoes in Leicestershire, you see what I mean?
[546] We've made
a. bond (PS4PX) [547] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [548] we make er, you know you feel, ah my factory we thinks looking at
a. bond (PS4PX) [549] Like a [...] .
b. singh (PS4PR) [550] see looked at, looking, looking, look how we treat our potato, aren't they gorgeous!
[551] You know, and tha , we wouldn't go and have a look at a parcel machine system we'd look at lovely potatoes, [...] .
[552] And Marks and Spencers use the same [...] potato.
[553] Can you just get your girls to wear their hats on each layer and we'll have your potato,the , you know, that's how you used to get the Marks, get their Marks and Spencers account.
[554] A , but what I'm sa ,wha the point you were making Adrian, is tha , is is ... that's what you've gotta keep in mind about every time you walk into a business or phone up a business, that it does matter that it's in, your, that's not what we want ... cos I'm telling you, you know, don't you know, the security guys ... photographing, you know, lampposts and stuff like that.
[555] But if it's a bolt that holds a lamppost down and they've under ... under-ordered, there's not, but they're with them, then we can take those.
[556] The other thing is, is docu , documents are the same.
[557] If, there are, there are industry working to deadlines all the time.
[558] I in ... Terry was just mentioning his wife's business, in advertising, d'ya, would sell the advertising space in your feature or your magazine or whatever ... try and get the bleeders to send you that what they wanna put in it!
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [559] A friend of mine sends things like that and they gotta be ... and the proofs have to be sent.
b. singh (PS4PR) [560] Honestly!
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [561] You know.
b. singh (PS4PR) [562] Oh trying to get companies to decide
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [clears throat]
b. singh (PS4PR) [563] how they're gonna say, what they're gonna say, coming up with art work ideas and whatever.
[564] And it was always to,ye , you know, you ask a commercial artist what sort of lead time, that's another, another er ... another word that you might come across, because again, you don't want them to speak our jargon but we can speak there's.
[565] You know, if I said to Terry's wife, Mrs , how much lead time do you need to set up your show?
[566] What would she say?
[567] What does sh , what do I mean by lead time?
Justin (PS4PN) [568] To set it up , the amount of time it takes her to get it up, be prepared
b. singh (PS4PR) [569] That's right.
Justin (PS4PN) [570] for it.
b. singh (PS4PR) [571] what about ... we , and if I, if one of her suppliers I asked them, if I said well okay, if we feature your outfit here, how much lead time you ne , do you need from order to production?
[572] What do I now mean?
[573] ... If I place the order today how much lead time do you want?
[574] What do I mean?
Justin (PS4PN) [575] Actually the time from er
j. fowles (PS4PU) [576] Time.
Justin (PS4PN) [577] when the order placed to the, when it's gonna be on the rack and ready.
b. singh (PS4PR) [578] In i , actually in my shop is what I mean.
[579] Now
j. worrow (PS4PS) [580] It doesn't work that way in the rag trade that.
[581] Remember I was saying to you about the whole of the rag trade?
[582] I know it's gonna cost sending them by the way.
b. singh (PS4PR) [583] Mhm.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [584] And the rag trade was ... also upside down ready on the trailer to come across, I won't bore you with the way they do their budgeting for example, but what happens is, my wife will go to one of those suppliers and say ... yes, a number of my people want to buy that dress so we want a thousand of them.
[585] And I want them on, such and such a day.
b. singh (PS4PR) [586] Alright.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [587] That's no problem.
[588] It's not
b. singh (PS4PR) [589] Fine.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [590] how long does it take you, what's your lead time?
b. singh (PS4PR) [591] So really what's the, what
j. worrow (PS4PS) [592] You get it there on time.
b. singh (PS4PR) [593] What, what you're saying is, is the lead, if I ask that question then now they would say,tha when, when do you want it?
j. worrow (PS4PS) [594] That's right.
b. singh (PS4PR) [595] It's like, if you go ... to, I've heard, I've not been, but if you go to Hong Kong, you can have a suit made overnight.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [596] Yeah?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [597] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [598] That's a tailor-made, handmade suit that is stitched
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [599] Mm mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [600] overnight.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [601] And shirts.
b. singh (PS4PR) [602] And shirts
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [cough]
b. singh (PS4PR) [603] made.
[604] In Thailand while you wait.
[605] ... Cos they will just say, they'll just sit down and make it.
[606] Measure you up ... make it cos they want ... the money.
[607] Cos, that's what they need.
[608] Because labour, there's loads of it ... and it's very cheap.
[609] And really, what the rag trade's famous for is labour, very cheap.
[610] And that's why they can
j. worrow (PS4PS) [611] Stretch it.
b. singh (PS4PR) [612] That's right.
[613] And that's why they can
j. worrow (PS4PS) [614] You've been watching House of Elliot.
b. singh (PS4PR) [laugh]
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [615] What I'm saying is, that's why they respond in that way, which, in in other industries and comp , businesses, er, we have different er, things to consider don't we?
[616] Like arranging where they're bought and so on.
[617] Now T N T do something, when d'ya want it?
[618] We'll get it there.
[619] We'll get it there.
[620] Because, I mean, if we can't do it through T N T overnight i , if tomorrow's too late who do we use?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [...] [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [621] And if they say well, we want erm ... seventy five different locations served with crisps stands by ten o'clock tomorrow because our advert is going out ... on national T V tomorrow ... can we do it?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [622] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [623] And we then go and recruit, we'll go the, you know, we'll go to the job centres and get them.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [624] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [625] Or, they'll turn round, if the money's, if the money is big enough, they'll turn round to anybody who works for us and say, d'ya wanna join us?
[626] Come and join us.
[627] Get your kit on and do a bit, d'ya know what I mean?
[628] And they'll just ask people to partake and we'll get it done.
[629] If it's, if it's, feasible we'll get it done.
[630] And that's the sort of ethos that T N T's got.
[631] But we're likely to make more money at it than ... perhaps the sweat shops do.
[632] So what I'm saying is, is lead time in lots of business is highly valuable ... but ... if you can cut down the delivery time and give them more lead time ... you're actually extending
(PS4PP) [633] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [634] the lead time by tightening up and this is where your time deliveries come in.
[635] Because, although it's before nine ... erm, the next morning ... erm ... you're actually giving them now more lead time, you've given them another day because an , sometime tomorrow ... you know, if it gets there at two o'clock and it's off-loading in in in at the bay and someone checks that it's been received and then someone makes a phone call to tell them it's there, and then they're doing something else, and then they come down and have a look at it, how many boxes do you think are sitting on loading bays that don't get looked at for a day or two, or three, or four, five ... when they've had a next day service?
b. singh (PS4PR) [636] Quite a few.
(PS4PP) [637] Quite a few.
b. singh (PS4PR) [638] Mm.
[639] My other half ordered from a catalogue disc drives to assemble compu , er a home computer ... and he was looking very carefully cos computer parts can be quite expensive and he was looking at national catalogue for the best prices.
[640] He knew exactly what he wanted, or, or the range of things he wanted, and the price that he, he was price conditioned and working out which was the best price, priced package.
[641] And oh!
[642] Look at that place in Southampton, can do me a disc drive for two hundred quid or whatever it was, I don't know why but I can't remember the price, but let's keep it at two hundred pound, And he phoned them up and said oh your price is very good on that one.
[643] Right.
[644] Yes it is.
[645] There's a lot of people ordering that one.
[646] Okay then, can I have one?
[647] Yes he said.
[648] That will be two hundred pounds plus V A T, plus thirty pounds carriage.
[649] He said ... thirty pounds?
[650] That's a hell of a lot to be asking, you know, why is it so much?
[651] Oh it's express.
[652] He said right, oh so I'll have it tomorrow?
[653] He says, no it takes thirty days to get here.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [654] Sorry it wasn't thirty days, ten days to get here.
[655] What service does he need Carly?
(PS4PP) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [656] I can deliver to you next day, but it takes him ten days to get it here, what service does he need?
[657] Mm?
(PS4PP) [658] Before nine.
p. summers (PS4PV) [659] Before nine.
(PS4PP) [660] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [661] Say it again louder.
p. summers (PS4PV) [662] Carriage forward.
[663] Carriage forward.
(PS4PP) [664] It's called carriage
b. singh (PS4PR) [665] Can you
(PS4PP) [666] forward.
b. singh (PS4PR) [667] co can you explain to those who don't know what it is cos it's
(PS4PP) [668] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [669] a, it's a stupid name isn't it?
[670] Carriage forward.
[671] Sounds like the, talk about the horse before the ca , the cart before the horse.
p. summers (PS4PV) [672] In the first place you've got three companies, A B and C ... C's your manufacturer
b. singh (PS4PR) [673] D'ya wanna draw, do you want to draw it on here?
p. summers (PS4PV) [674] Yeah, wait a minute.
[675] ... You got three companies ... A, B and C.
[676] Erm ... we'll call B the carrier ... sort of like the go between if you like ... A, is your say, shop ... and C is your manufacturer.
[677] Now you may have a customer that comes into the shop ... at A and they need something desperately, they walk in the sho , may walk in and say look I need that compact disc player, my life depends on having compact disc player and shopkeeper ... no see now we haven't got it.
[678] But what they can do in this case is ... the manufacturer's at C, but the manufacturer cannot deliver to the shop until ... maybe two weeks time ... they can phone us, the carrier, we will then arrange ... for someone to go to manufacturer at C, pick it up, bring it to us and then we'll take to the shop.
b. singh (PS4PR) [679] Right.
p. summers (PS4PV) [680] All for a charge of course.
b. singh (PS4PR) [681] Right.
[682] So that gives what, to the shopkeeper?
(PS4PP) [683] Control.
b. singh (PS4PR) [684] Control again.
[685] Now what else we could do, well said
(PS4PP) [686] Customer satisfaction.
b. singh (PS4PR) [687] that's, that's ... that's well said, but we can also do third party
j. fowles (PS4PU) [688] Third party.
b. singh (PS4PR) [689] carriage forward
p. summers (PS4PV) [690] Oh yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [691] that's why, that's so that we can give the shop his control of supply ... which actually like my da , you're saying if it was a computer disc supplier he could have next day delivery to him and then next day delivery to my man.
(PS4PP) [692] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [693] Right?
[694] What we can actually do is suggest to the C, the C D or the computer shop ... your manufacturer can send directly to Peter ... via us, I then say ... via us.
p. summers (PS4PV) [695] Aye, you'll get the bill.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [696] Mm mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [697] But ... we will send the bill
p. summers (PS4PV) [698] To that shop.
b. singh (PS4PR) [699] you can
(PS4PP) [700] Mm mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [701] send them the bill and we'll send them the goods.
[702] They, Peter, if he found out where they were coming from what might he do?
(PS4PP) [703] Phone them.
p. summers (PS4PV) [704] To the supplier.
b. singh (PS4PR) [705] He might cut out the middle man you see.
(PS4PP) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [706] Cos he might be able to go straight to the ba , the
(PS4PP) [707] Yeah.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [cough]
b. singh (PS4PR) [708] Now obviously, we don't
j. worrow (PS4PS) [clears throat]
b. singh (PS4PR) [709] want to lose his business so we protect him but we don't say ... it's coming from there.
[710] We are, we represent him, it's his delivery van
(PS4PP) [711] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [712] that delivers to Peter.
[713] And that's third party carriage forward which is even, and Peter's even happier because he doesn't even have to wait two days now, he gets his delivery next day.
[714] And the bill he, that he gets at the same as the time as the delivery, and what's normal credit conditions?
(PS4PP) [715] Thirty days.
b. singh (PS4PR) [716] Thirty days.
[717] So when does the thirty days start ticking by?
a. bond (PS4PX) [718] We get our money back much quicker.
b. singh (PS4PR) [719] That's right.
[720] You do.
[721] So instead of waiting ten days for delivery and then the invoice being,tha , you know being delivered with the goods ... when you open
j. worrow (PS4PS) [722] Yes.
b. singh (PS4PR) [723] it up there's the bill ... the bill can be eleven days in advance of that which means improved
p. summers (PS4PV) [724] Well that means everybody's happier.
[725] The manufacturer's happier
b. singh (PS4PR) [726] That's right.
p. summers (PS4PV) [727] cos he gets his money quicker.
b. singh (PS4PR) [728] Well done.
p. summers (PS4PV) [729] The shopkeeper's happier because he gets
b. singh (PS4PR) [730] Aha.
p. summers (PS4PV) [731] his money quicker.
[732] We're happier ... because we get paid quicker and the end-user's happier cos he's
b. singh (PS4PR) [733] Aha.
p. summers (PS4PV) [734] got his product quicker.
b. singh (PS4PR) [735] That is it.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [736] And if the shopkeeper uses our service all the time he doesn't have to carry any stock.
b. singh (PS4PR) [737] Yep.
p. summers (PS4PV) [738] Yeah.
[739] Right.
b. singh (PS4PR) [740] Improved cash flow.
[741] And if he doesn't have to carry any stock ... what does that mean with th er in terms of his capital being tied up.
p. summers (PS4PV) [742] It isn't.
b. singh (PS4PR) [743] He can do
(PS4PP) [744] He could
b. singh (PS4PR) [745] what?
[746] Open
(PS4PP) [747] He could do so something else.
p. summers (PS4PV) [748] Another shop.
b. singh (PS4PR) [749] another shop.
j. fowles (PS4PU) [750] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [751] D'ya see?
[752] But d'ya know something?
[753] There are businesses out there that don't understand that.
p. summers (PS4PV) [754] They probably don't even know we exist.
b. singh (PS4PR) [755] D'ya know, d'ya know
(PS4PP) [756] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [757] why?
[758] D'ya know why they don't know it exists?
(PS4PP) [759] People like shops.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [760] I don't know why it is, no.
b. singh (PS4PR) [761] Because nobody has target them.
(PS4PP) [762] Yeah.
a. bond (PS4PX) [763] That's right.
b. singh (PS4PR) [764] Anthony?
a. bond (PS4PX) [765] I've seen a lot of companies like that
b. singh (PS4PR) [766] Honestly.
a. bond (PS4PX) [767] just recently.
b. singh (PS4PR) [768] Why, why
j. worrow (PS4PS) [769] Can I tell you another reason why as well
b. singh (PS4PR) [770] Peter rang this computer
j. worrow (PS4PS) [771] because
b. singh (PS4PR) [772] in Southampton and he said we can give you next day this, they won't, they won't enter into it, we can give you next day delivery ... but it takes ten or twenty days.
[773] And I bet you, if you look at how many of your accounts are not using carriage forward when they should ... you would be amazed.
[774] Existing on your roller now.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [775] And so, why so many don't know about carriage
b. singh (PS4PR) [776] I know.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [777] forward
(PS4PP) [778] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [779] They don't understand.
(PS4PP) [780] That's it.
b. singh (PS4PR) [781] They don't understand what it means.
[782] Th ,ca , what do most people use carriage forwards for?
j. fowles (PS4PU) [783] Just collecting from somewhere else and bringing it back to themselves.
b. singh (PS4PR) [784] Bringing it back, sending it back.
j. fowles (PS4PU) [785] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [786] Invoice them
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [clears throat]
b. singh (PS4PR) [787] let me, the o the other thing we can do is if it's broken ... the shop can send it back but the man, the other person pays.
j. fowles (PS4PU) [788] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [789] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [790] That is also carriage forward.
[791] Comes back to the person.
[792] And a lot of our carriage forwards are
j. fowles (PS4PU) [793] Are
b. singh (PS4PR) [794] returns.
j. fowles (PS4PU) [795] Yeah.
[796] And then they put in a claim form.
(PS4PP) [797] Or sometimes they've got an account in your name.
b. singh (PS4PR) [798] And that's why we don't make money on carriage forwards cos we don't sell carriage forwards for the positive reasons, we say, well if they don't want them send them back, or if they're damaged send them back.
j. fowles (PS4PU) [799] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [800] Or if you have to have, I used to do it for erm ... West Bro , er ... Northampton Brewery.
[801] Banson's
j. worrow (PS4PS) [802] Banson's
b. singh (PS4PR) [803] Brewery.
[804] Erm, it was, was Banson Brewery.
[805] Er no it wasn't Ba , Banson's Brewery, erm
j. worrow (PS4PS) [806] Anson's
b. singh (PS4PR) [807] no sorry, I'm I'm in the wrong trade, it was er ... gas cylinders.
[808] And we used to send back the erm
j. worrow (PS4PS) [809] The valves.
b. singh (PS4PR) [810] the valves.
[811] They used to er se , we couldn't carry the empty ga , you can imagine that's not express parcel stuff, but the valves er, would sometimes need er replacing and we would send them a valve and, and while, instead of having any down time, we would give them ... you know deliver the spare, have the spare come back for repair.
[812] Do you understand?
[813] Cos there's a lot of this maintenance thing that goes on as
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [814] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [815] as well isn't there ... with businesses?
[816] It isn't just ... service doesn't end at the sale,so , a lot of things have to have after-care don't they?
[817] Or
j. worrow (PS4PS) [818] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [819] a service contract with them and there's lots of business, repeat business.
[820] Another one we did, er, out of South Wales was hip replacement ... kit
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [821] Gosh!
b. singh (PS4PR) [822] to erm ... [tut] ... the hospitals ... and erm ... they would ... appar , I might be wro , I'm sure this is the way she explained it to me cos one of the girls in the branches did explain it to me once, and they said they have a choice of joints, like the doctor would say ... er
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [823] New brain.
b. singh (PS4PR) [824] your due to, you know, you, you were due for your hip replacement.
[825] Right.
[826] And what they would do is have a look and say ooh that's, ooh that's about your size, that's about it.
[827] Right.
[828] They don't make a joint do they, for you, you, you, you and you?
[829] They're all sort of standard sort of size pieces of kit.
[830] Cos it's an engineering job really isn't it?
(PS4PP) [831] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [832] You know.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [833] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [834] Providing you're looking after the blood supply, I mean, you know, the cardiovascular bit, you know, it's a bit of an engineering job.
[835] So they,th , you, you have a choice of hips, and they also have a bit of saw, a bit of sawing kit and screw in, you know, have delicate screws.
[836] Cos it's, it is pins and stuff isn't it, that makes
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [837] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [838] the hip work?
[839] So they have little screws to, you know, to go into the bone and little er ... delicate instruments which are highly developed instruments and manufactured by certain pattern.
[840] And they actually supply them in special sealed containers, you know, little ... cases that er, so, when you're doing a hip job you have a little kit come ... from the supplier.
[841] And what they do, is they give them a couple of choices of bo , you know, hip joints to go for and the guy decides, the surgeon decides, does his job and then the kit goes back to the manufacturer again ... and then when the, another hospital orders it they make up a, another kit.
[842] Obviously there's a lot of sterilizing going on in the meantime and all this.
[843] But they don't, these tools are used again, and again, and again ... you know.
[844] The screws they make are, are to be there in the body ... and the parts are in the bodies, but the bits they don't use come back and then they are put back into stock again.
[845] And our service was so good ... to hospitals, [...] , that they'd be somebody on the table ... well where's the bit?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [846] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [847] She's just getting her anaesthetic now.
[848] Well where's the bits you know?
[849] And they're ringing up ... er ... Julie about it, and say Julie ... well, they're here.
[850] What's happened?
[851] Because the service was so good ... they'd all, you know, they'd forget about the delivery that would be there.
[852] She'd supply them.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [853] So it was there?
b. singh (PS4PR) [854] Yes.
[855] Already
(PS4PP) [856] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [857] there.
[858] And then one day it didn't.
[859] Can't find this bit.
[860] They're always going down for anaesthetic, we can't find it.
[861] Now she's just had a pre-med now.
[862] Right okay.
[863] We can't find it.
[864] Can you find it for me?
[865] Okay then.
[866] Traced it.
[867] But of course it took a little bit of time, an hour or so, and th , the woman came round again, they said can't do you today
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [868] can't find the joint.
[869] So, she came back out of er ... pre-med, had a nice happy half hour on a bit of valium and came back out of it again.
[870] Went back up to the ward cos there was no bit.
[871] Do you know where it was?
[872] In the erm ... gate house ... at the hospital.
[873] We had delivered it but they hadn't taken it from the gate house to ... you know, normal procedure but they, we delivered it normally but they hadn't taken it to the exact part of the hospital it was going to.
[874] So, Julie sent the patient a bunch of flowers ... and sh , and said sorry for the de , for the delay, you know it's there tomorrow, and she had this, she had it done again.
[875] But really, what, all they wanted to do was save face from the hospital because it wasn't our fault ... but she used a bit of ... you know, we won't embarrass the hospital ... we'll say
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [876] And then our customer's happy.
b. singh (PS4PR) [877] bit of customer care, but really
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [878] And, well
b. singh (PS4PR) [879] we all, we'll lose face with the patient
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [880] Mm mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [881] because we int gonna, we haven't gotta worry about what she says about, but he sa , the hospital didn't wanna lose face, but I mean, the hospital said thank you [...] .
[882] Cos they were saying will they tell her, you know the part hasn't come and, so we said okay, let's pretend the part didn't get there.
[883] Send her a bunch of flowers.
[884] But really it had got there but again ... But what I'm saying is, that service ... of carriage forward ... we were making almost as much money on the kit coming back ... cos we could have charged another
j. fowles (PS4PU) [885] It's five quid isn't it?
b. singh (PS4PR) [886] Yeah.
[887] It's five pound at the moment is it?
[888] It has been up to nine or ten pound ... for
j. fowles (PS4PU) [889] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [890] return.
[891] Because it ca , most, we do lose a lot of money on carriage forwards.
[892] If I talk to, if you talk to our operations they will say, oh my God!
[893] Do you know why?
[894] Because, we don't know what we're carrying.
[895] A lot of carriage forwards
j. worrow (PS4PS) [clears throat]
b. singh (PS4PR) [896] are returns and damages.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [897] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [898] And they're in a terrible state when we pick them up.
[899] Because, you can imagine working for us, you received something and thought that's no good and can't use it, what happens to it then in your warehouse or ... despa
j. fowles (PS4PU) [900] Just sta , lays there.
b. singh (PS4PR) [901] And what happens to it while it's [...] ?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [902] Kicked around.
p. summers (PS4PV) [903] Kicked around.
b. singh (PS4PR) [904] Kicked about.
[905] Right.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [906] Broken.
b. singh (PS4PR) [907] Broken and all that.
[908] And, what did you say that we get a lot of claims on carriage forward?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [909] Damaged foodstuff.
j. gibson (PS4PT) [910] You have to insure them don't you, carriage forward of course?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [911] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [912] That's why we have to
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [913] So
(PS4PP) [914] No you don't.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [915] Yeah.
[916] Tha that means we're paying out
b. singh (PS4PR) [917] But you see the problem is
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [918] if we do actually find out.
b. singh (PS4PR) [919] Yeah, you see the trouble is though we're so open to abuse.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [920] because
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [921] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [922] people, they don't rush back, they don't wanna urgently express back a carriage forward, they don't work.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [923] What they want is, they get on the phone and say that's no good, send me another one.
[924] And we send them the replacement, and they let the broken one sit there.
[925] How many times have you ... supposed to have taken something back ... or have it repaired or something and it's sat there, and it's sat there, and it's sat there, and it's sat there ... and it's collected du , I've got things round the house that I've been working on and that I've gotta, I've gotta ... and it's collected dust.
[926] You know, that's another project that went sort of slowly the way.
[927] Erm, and what I'm saying is, we don't address the things that aren't urgent
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [928] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [929] we only address the urgent things.
[930] But we do leave
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [931] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [932] ourselves, well we've gotta protect ourselves as carriers against other people saying ... ah!
[933] We broke that, or that was broke ... er, but we'll blame the carrier now and look at it, then our security guy goes out and they know it's been sitting around someone's ... you know, it's been there for months!
[934] And er, we we, we are open to abuse on them.
[935] But that doesn't mean to say that what Danny said ... was very valuable, and as you said Adrian, the four, the four parties, the receiver, the thirty party receiver, the people who are paying the bills ... buyer and us are very happy in many cases with ... using carriage forward in a positive way not just for returns
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [936] Mm mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [937] yeah?
[938] The returns do get a bit dodgy I find.
[939] But we still do it ... cos we insure it, we, charge an extra fiver every time ... then it's good money.
[940] I'm stopping you through your list ... Phil.
p. ford (PS4PW) [941] Well I mean, I've got a
b. singh (PS4PR) [942] Any more?
p. ford (PS4PW) [943] quite a few on here.
[944] Is there any ones that you want me to pin point at all or
b. singh (PS4PR) [945] Erm le , what I wanna do is just get, just insure that we know the difference between what is giving the customer the, the benefit and the features.
[946] So we probably won't go through them all.
[947] But
p. ford (PS4PW) [948] No.
b. singh (PS4PR) [949] let's just discuss our way round a couple of other things because these are, this is your product knowledge now isn't it?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [950] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [951] This is what you need to know about selling the service.
[952] It's no good, er ... talking about how you do something, how you do is not what they're interested in.
[953] So whats, that's how you do it.
p. ford (PS4PW) [...]
j. gibson (PS4PT) [954] How do you do it?
p. ford (PS4PW) [955] the customer. [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [956] It's, it's what can please me.
p. ford (PS4PW) [957] [laughing] Cuddly toy [] .
b. singh (PS4PR) [958] What's in it for me?
[959] The with them factor.
[960] What it is in it for me?
[961] Okay.
p. ford (PS4PW) [962] I've got liability options.
b. singh (PS4PR) [963] What d'ya mean by that, liability options?
p. ford (PS4PW) [964] Well like being insu , like people have got a choice of different options of insurances and
b. singh (PS4PR) [965] That's a good one.
[966] Now if I said, ooh!
[967] We offer good liability options.
[968] We can give you ... transport liability at, what level's that?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [969] [laugh] ... Aha.
[970] Five thousand pounds, ten thousand pounds, and fifteen thousand pounds costing three, three, six, and nine pound respectively.
b. singh (PS4PR) [971] Five, ten, and fifteen.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [972] Which is forward transit [...] .
j. worrow (PS4PS) [laugh]
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [973] Don't be like that.
b. singh (PS4PR) [974] What is the free?
(PS4PP) [975] Fifteen pounds a kilo.
b. singh (PS4PR) [976] Sorry, five, sorry I got that one.
[977] Three,
p. ford (PS4PW) [978] Six and nine.
(PS4PP) [979] Six and nine.
b. singh (PS4PR) [980] and nine.
[981] And the free one is?
(PS4PP) [982] Fifteen pound a kilo.
b. singh (PS4PR) [983] Right.
[984] Okay.
[985] Now what I'm saying is ... we, because we have good liability what can that imply?
Justin (PS4PN) [986] You're getting a [...]
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [987] How can you sell it's properties then?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [988] In the likely event
b. singh (PS4PR) [989] In the likely event
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [990] In the likely event
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [991] Likely event so
b. singh (PS4PR) [992] Well we won't [...] us, it won't graduate any
a. bond (PS4PX) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [993] but does it have to do got this [...]
a. bond (PS4PX) [994] You're committed
b. singh (PS4PR) [995] liability?
a. bond (PS4PX) [996] you're committed, you're committing to your service
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [997] It's like life assurance.
a. bond (PS4PX) [998] on the fact that you can offer you your high rate of liability.
[999] Cos by offering a high rate of liability it's, it's suggests that we
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [1000] Concerned.
a. bond (PS4PX) [1001] that we care.
b. singh (PS4PR) [cough]
a. bond (PS4PX) [1002] And say we co , we, we're committed.
j. fowles (PS4PU) [1003] Rather than see non-damaged [...] if you like.
a. bond (PS4PX) [1004] We're limited ... I won't ta , I don't like using the word problems without [...] .
b. singh (PS4PR) [1005] The reason why
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1006] What about the
b. singh (PS4PR) [1007] we can afford to offer such good liability cover is the risk is very minimal.
a. bond (PS4PX) [1008] Is small, yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1009] The cost is very minimal.
a. bond (PS4PX) [1010] Yeah.
(PS4PP) [1011] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1012] That's what you're saying isn't it Adrian?
a. bond (PS4PX) [1013] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1014] Good.
a. bond (PS4PX) [1015] We can get excellent
b. singh (PS4PR) [1016] Try to find the words but you had a good, good case there.
a. bond (PS4PX) [1017] We can get excellent rates from insurance companies
b. singh (PS4PR) [1018] That's right.
a. bond (PS4PX) [1019] because we are so good.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1020] Now we , actually
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1021] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1022] we are our own

b. singh (PS4PR) [1378] And if I let you drive my Rover home, would you?
[1379] She said yes to the actual question.
[1380] That was more than a closed question, it was closed
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [1381] Oh right.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1382] would you?
[1383] You said would you drive my Rover that's the question?
[1384] When you said [...] we'll talk about that question last.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [1385] And the others will have to wait till they come up again.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [1386] Ah ah!
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [1387] Right.
[1388] Well done.
[1389] See that, excellent.
[1390] Right.

j. fowles (PS4PU) [1393] [laugh] ... Yeah, when she was saying asking them
b. singh (PS4PR) [1394] And the, that's right.
[1395] Now, the other thing is Phil ... because he's got a new experience with it, struggled to find a question.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [clears throat]
b. singh (PS4PR) [1396] Right, he knew what she was talking about, she'd got it written down and she was gonna get that information.
[1397] But sometimes it can sound too ... I know this didn't happen
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [1398] Yeah, comes a bit too
b. singh (PS4PR) [1399] it's just [...]
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [1400] I mean I'm not suggesting you, you behave like that on the phone
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [1401] but what I'm saying is, awareness now, I'm just slagging off the awareness.
[1402] [clicking fingers] When it sounds rehearsed, it sounds, like, that.
[1403] And it doesn't sound quite as clear as if you have to think about who you're talking to.
[1404] So the fact that you struggled Phil
p. ford (PS4PW) [1405] Mm mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1406] to find the next question, the customer knows you're thinking.

b. singh (PS4PR) [1500] It's only an exercise and, and you
(PS4PP) [1501] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1502] and you have e , your own agendas there, obviously.
[1503] What I'm saying is ... is sometimes slowing the pace ... and simply
(PS4PP) [1504] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1505] let her think a little longer because ... and then she'll say, oh!
[1506] And then she's just think of that.
[1507] With Phil's hesitance ... we got a bit more.
[1508] And Phil was thinking ... I wonder whether this is about [...] and I'm [laughing] trying to think of the next question [] .
(PS4PP) [laugh]
p. ford (PS4PW) [1509] No.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1510] Which is the question of what you feel when you're in the field out there trying to work something through.
[1511] Which calls
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1512] Actually you've hit the nail on the head there didn't you?
b. singh (PS4PR) [1513] Mm?
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1514] When you said ... Phil thought he wasn't, I'm not listening.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1515] No.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1516] Because that's what it's all about.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1517] Yes.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1518] And when you're listening you're watching for body language as well.
(PS4PP) [1519] Mm.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1520] And so if you have not been concentrating on the question
b. singh (PS4PR) [1521] Yeah.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1522] you will probably have recognized the body that says ... I'm prepared to give you more.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1523] Now, to be fair ... that comes with experience.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1524] Of course.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1525] Listening, as you become more comfortable and you become, you've done it a few times ... you know what you're gonna have to say ... and then you, you er, you listen more carefully to the answers.
[1526] But the listening is the key.
[1527] Paul had it well prepared and really she sa , but sh all his answers met with ... a logical sequence didn't it?
(PS4PP) [1528] Mm mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1529] Very well done ... and he spent a lot of time working on that did you notice?
[1530] I'm not saying that's, okay, you got a bit misled by the instructions but don't worry, but he still gave ... you could see that ... you know ... he was, you know, he was just
(PS4PP) [1531] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1532] you know, he was caught in a
(PS4PP) [1533] He was [laughing] concentrating [] .
b. singh (PS4PR) [1534] train of thought.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [1535] He was erm , he was trying
p. summers (PS4PV) [1536] Thanks.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1537] very hard and e , good, good preparation does take effort.
[1538] I mean I know we're only playing here, but it does take effort and, practised effort becomes easier ... it doesn't become hard work.
[1539] It's like ... playing a good game of squash, squash, to get a better game ... and it's not so hard ... because you're off to, you, you're fit for the game.
[1540] And that's what you'll do, you'll become fit.
[1541] You'll be a better player.
j. fowles (PS4PU) [1542] As you say, when you're on the phone you get those silences you just of go, mm mm, mm
b. singh (PS4PR) [1543] Well done Jenny!
j. fowles (PS4PU) [1544] And like, [...]
b. singh (PS4PR) [1545] Well erm, what's ha , what would you call those?
[1546] Right.
[1547] Okay.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [...]
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [1548] They know you're listening.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1549] Listening noises.
[1550] That's very good.
[1551] That's very good.
[1552] Right.
[1553] All
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1554] Can I do, just make one announcement?
b. singh (PS4PR) [1555] Yes.
[1556] Please do.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1557] Just to illustrate how important this thing is, you've probably all come across and it really irritates me, you see people interviewing people on television ... and they've got their clipboard there and they've obviously got a prepared question so they can't falter ... and fine, that means they've prepared it.
[1558] And they ask a question and somebody's very open with the answer and they da , they just,sa expand on that answer ... and then, two or
b. singh (PS4PR) [1559] Aha.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1560] three questions later they ask them the very question they just answered
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [1561] E e expect [...]
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1562] and that really irritates me!
[1563] And that's purely and simply because they're just not listening.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [1564] Oh. [laugh]
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1565] The easiest thing in the world to take off that question
p. summers (PS4PV) [1566] Yeah.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1567] so that it's
p. summers (PS4PV) [...]
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1568] so think about that because
b. singh (PS4PR) [1569] Yeah.
[1570] And you'll lo
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1571] you don't want to get the backs up of your customers by asking them questions [...] .
b. singh (PS4PR) [1572] That is right.
[1573] And you'll losing the point of why
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1574] Absolutely.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1575] you're asking the question.
[1576] See
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1577] Aha.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1578] you're not, you're not paid to ask questions, you're paid to get in , information.
(PS4PP) [1579] Info.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1580] Yeah?
[1581] That's the point.
[1582] So that fact that you can't think of a next question Phil
p. ford (PS4PW) [1583] Mhm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1584] don't worry, you've got some information.
[1585] We can all ask questions ... later ... okay?
[1586] What you really want then is a way to sort of happenings or embarrassments because you're a bit stuck of where you want to go.
p. ford (PS4PW) [1587] Mm mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1588] That's interesting.
[1589] Let me write that down.
[1590] Ah!
[1591] You're giving yourself some new [...] , you know.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1592] I think one of the things Phil can do in that si
b. singh (PS4PR) [1593] Don't worry about it.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1594] or anybody could do in that situation is having asked a question, they're a bit hesitant about ... er, the next question then simply throw in there to buy yourself some time something like ... ee, is that all?
[1595] Or, is any more that you can add to that?
[1596] Just to give yourself a bit of time
b. singh (PS4PR) [1597] Mm.
[1598] Or repeat the question.
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1599] for the next question.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1600] It will help
j. worrow (PS4PS) [1601] Yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1602] you.
[1603] Like we've just suggested.
[1604] Oh have you?
[1605] Or, what was your way of doing it before you said?
[1606] When, when you wanted to know where Mandy went?
[1607] Can you give us, tell us about that Paul?
p. summers (PS4PV) [1608] Well I kept asking her, it made hard work, yeah.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1609] Yeah.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [1610] What did you do to her?
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [1611] You've not been listening have you Paul?
b. singh (PS4PR) [1612] You know whe when, when we asked
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [1613] He's still
p. summers (PS4PV) [1614] Well I thought she didn't know that.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1615] No he's still sitting back on his reflected glory now.
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [laugh]
b. singh (PS4PR) [1616] And rightly so as well.
[1617] Well done.
[1618] Carly would you like to demonstrate yours
Justin (PS4PN) [1619] Kath.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1620] now?
(PS4PP) [1621] Er
Justin (PS4PN) [1622] Could I say, say something?
b. singh (PS4PR) [1623] Yeah.
Justin (PS4PN) [1624] I just think ... I just think ... it's quite important for us all to realize ... I did a, when I used to do a similar job to this ... it took me a long time before I realized ... that the customer, you know on the phone doesn't know that your ... you shouldn't have asked an open question there
b. singh (PS4PR) [1625] Oh.
Justin (PS4PN) [1626] on the close ... and it comes, it just comes with practise, get all
b. singh (PS4PR) [1627] Right.
Justin (PS4PN) [1628] from practise doesn't it?
b. singh (PS4PR) [1629] Which is exactly it.
[1630] what I'm saying is is, you can, it doesn't matter how you ask the question, but sometimes
j. worrow (PS4PS) [clears throat]
b. singh (PS4PR) [1631] what I'm trying to help you practise, cos we're not, we're very good at asking closed questions in conversations but don't very often recognize, but you know, we, we we we, we'll zip backwards and forwards, and that's okay, but I want you to do consciously is know what type of questions you're asking because you can sometimes be hitting a brick wall and thinking I'm getting anywhere here and it's because you're asking too many closed questions.
(PS4PP) [1632] Mm mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1633] And you're making it sound like an interrogation.
[1634] Erm, especially when you're in front of a screen er or you're in front of a, a form that you're, someone's saying get the traffic profile out and th what they send, what they, how many they send, it can sound like an interrogational.
[1635] Get the buyer, get the product, get the carrier, get, and so on like that.
[1636] You've got to be careful that you are not losing the skill of a conversation.
(PS4PP) [1637] Mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1638] Open question ... what th va , advantage of open question is, is you do a ... less of it ... and they
Unknown speaker (KGUPSUNK) [1639] More of it.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1640] More of it.
[1641] And that's why it, on a foundation course we keep the questioning very simple.
[1642] Justin's experiences has tooken it, taken it further than that which is brilliant, and he can apply those skills straight away.
[1643] And if you've got those skills apply to them job, I'm not suggesting you don't, but remember ... the first part of a, a tele , er a telephone or a face to face sales negotiation is,th th two of these and one of these.
[1644] Right?
[1645] You should you be posing the questions and letting the discussion take place.
[1646] Posing the questions, controlling it ... but posing it and letting it go.
[1647] Right?
[1648] And you're gaining information.
[1649] When you've gathered information ... a , and and come to a conclusion ... erm interesting, we may have something for you there.
[1650] And that's when you get your presenter out and start matching to what the customer wants.
[1651] Now you've gone through an alternative yesterday ... and we know, we ta , we don't talk what is built in by design, what do we talk about?
[1652] We tell them what's built in by design and then we
Justin (PS4PN) [1653] Tell them the advantages.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1654] of what they get out of it.
[1655] [...] . And we keep it simple.
[1656] One feature ... maybe one or two benefits ... and you don't have to tell them the whole story.
(PS4PP) [1657] Mm mm.
b. singh (PS4PR) [1658] As you said Bill, pull out the benefits and features that are appropriate to what you've heard.
[1659] ... Er, there may be something you're interested in there?
[1660] Now there are tighter ways of actual sales negotiations but we haven't got the time to go into it today.
[1661] You'll have to come back on your selli , your course to do this.
[1662] Okay?
[1663] Or you ca , if you can do it on your own, brilliant!
[1664] Run with it now.
[1665] But what I want you to do is gather information, this is your answers, and match what you're doing ... er, what we sa provide with what you found out then.
[1666] Okay.
[1667] And you'll find out what method by just simply questioning them ... about the [...] .
[1668] Let me just check before we start that everybody's got this.
[1669] I'm sure Danny, Jenny, and Carly have, but just because ... we've gone half way, can I just let the other three finish off their presentation?
[1670] Cos they've sat and done the preparation.
[1671] Carly.
(PS4PP) [1672] Okay.
