quality of products and same features at comparatively lower prices. The higher prices

producing 3D carpets and flouring goods that are attracting new customers. The

advancement in the technology can disturb the business of the Interface Company at large

threats from its competitors. The competitors are adopting effective and efficient

industry. The purchasing infrastructure of the company is not easy and simples instead of it, it is

complex. Due to this reason the comp any has to face the huge cost despite of utilization of

technology and R and D sector. Due to this reason, the company should focus on the programs

related to cost reduction; so that the liabilities of the company will reduce. The main strategies of

the company to motivate the employees are rewarding them; along with it, the company should

motivate employees through allowing the and providing them opportunities to work with seniors,

peers and juniors, through this, company do not have to pay externally for coaching and training

of employees. The marketing strategies sector of the company is weak and entire focus of the

management is on production rather on promotion of products. The Interface Inc. should

resources such as print media and electronic media. No doubt, the company is having its

existence within several regions but the company should make sure that all the products are

available within same region.

21. Pros and Cons of alternatives:

The above each one specified system of the organization is carrying the critical effect and

additionally profit for the organization. The first method dependent upon lessening of expense

can build and recovery the plan of organization. The second methodology is inspiration of

workers through working nearly with them; this supports representatives. Particularly in the

organization case, the organization has phenomenal summon on enhancements particularly in the

plans, style, quality and estimations. Through concentrating on the advertising methodologies,

the organization can pick up the sufficient comes about and draw in more clients through

Interface Inc. Analysis 21

them and their proficiencies. Through putting resources into different areas, the organization

might misfortune its focus in essential segment because of which the organization is celebrated

around the world in the industry.

22. Reason of Pursuing an Alternative:

There are two best plans for the association, which could be executed in the association

for taking point of interest in the industry. These options are worker inspiration and advertising

techniques. These two best plan must be seeking after in light of the fact that through stressing

improvement of item highlights or improve it through Guerilla promoting and in addition take

what will be measured is necessary. For example, when small areas of operations are

consolidated or combined then the performance for collection and transfer of waste should be

increased without extra cost or time. If performance for collection and transfer of waste needs

more cost or time then the alternative is not suitable for the organization. For the measurement of

employees performance and grating them awards, there is need to set standards; because just

leave employees freely is not effective way. For marketing strategies, the company must invest

in each media and overview the performance each media by evaluating the performance.
