July 2016 – Tackling Unproductive Productivity Solutions

Over the past few years, Singapore has focused on raising productivity to achieve quality economic growth. Yet despite well-intended investments in new productivity systems, not all companies seem to be reaping the fruits of their efforts. Our research suggests that one of the key reasons is that many companies tend to have a piece-meal approach towards productivity. They focus on selected parts of their operations instead of having a holistic view of the whole workflow
process, or a clear understanding of where the true bottlenecks lie.

July 2014 – Construction World: Handling Success

Suheil Murgai, Associate Director of Ipsos Business Consulting in Delhi, was featured in Construction World’s article “Handling Success”, which discussed how the revival of the Indian economy will spur the crane-dominated material handling equipment market to a high growth phase. According to Suheil, “Pick & carry, crawler and tower cranes are all seeing growth. But pick and carry cranes dominate the market because they lend themselves well to varied applications and customers are familiar with their usage. Escorts models enjoy 45 percent share of the pick and carry crane market. In the tower crane segment, 5-6 tonne models account for 75-80 percent of the market. Demand for slew cranes is growing at a slower rate because of the unrestricted imports of second-hand cranes.” The full article can be viewed at:
