Intelligence & market assessment

Vema GmbH team members have decades of experience in the automotive market, strategizing a highly successful go-to-market plan, comprising of a winning mix of product-price-target market and positioning.

We now utilise this expertise for supporting our global supplier-partners – in testing and deeply assessing the “Volkswagen” market within 3-6 months through our “Assessment” programs.

Assessment Programme of 3-6 months covers:
  • Make initial contact with appropriate persons at Volkswagen to introduce the supplier partner’s products
  • Conduct face-to-face meetings with short-listed customers to make a detailed presentation and discuss their interests, queries and expectations.
  • Update the supplier partner from time-to-time, and arrange an appropriate response to the customers.
  • Arrange meetings with selected companies at the end of this period for the supplier partner to meet during their visit.
  • Assist supplier partner with advice, recommendations and submittals. Arrange meetings with selected companies at the end of this period for the supplier partner to meet during their visit.
  • At the end of this Assessment Programme, our supplier partner obtains an in-depth understanding of his target customers and segments through actual interactions with key persons at the customer’s organisation. We also would have effectively positioned our supplier partner at the target customers. Most importantly, you would have tested and assessed the market smartly and efficiently. This process would pave the way for your “Volkswagen Market Entry” initiative with maximum success at minimum risk.
We support you in devising your go-to-market strategy and plan based on the outcome and learning from the Assessment programme.
