Healthcare:


The healthcare sector remains one of the fastest growing parts of the global economy and one of the biggest challenges facing policy makers and the private sector. The cost of healthcare continues to outpace inflation in virtually every country in the world, and efforts at reform and cost containment make operating a commercial venture in the sector a continually dynamic enterprise. Despite the challenges, though, the sector holds great opportunities driven by the aging population in developed countries, increasing demand for sophisticated therapies and care systems in developing countries, rapidly advancing health technologies.


Health care can be broadly defined as providing medical products, equipment and services to protect, extend, or increase the quality of patients’ lives. Increasingly, the industry encompasses a network of interrelated providers with different areas of expertise, all coordinated to varying degrees to keep us healthy.


The Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) breaks the space into two broad subgroups:

1. Health Care Equipment and Services

2. Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology and Life Sciences


The healthcare category covers the array of market products and services that form the environment in which clinical care is provided, including the financial side of medical markets from private healthcare financing (insurance, managed care, and reimbursement schemes) to public regulation and policy (government programs and subsidies). It also covers issues in care delivery and settings (hospitals, clinics, long-term care facilities, personnel, improvement initiatives, and prevention/wellness programs) and technological product categories that will impact the entire system (hospital information systems, telemedicine, and electronic medical records [EMR]).


The challenges faced are manifold: regulatory and legal compliance; the need to offer customized services to a customer base whose knowledge keeps growing; giving out the right and error-less information at the right time, as even a minuscule error can lead to a ban on the product and negative brand value to the company apart from legal actions.


Valuelinked has been offering solutions to the world since 2012, and has ample experience in the Healthcare sector. Our portfolio spans satisfied health insurers, multi state hospital systems and medical service providers.


We aim to deliver customized and integrated solutions to give your company the edge, since we have a proven track record in integration.

Retail:


The Global Powers of Retailing analyzes retail performance by primary retail product sector as well as by geography. It includes Four sectors:

  • Fast-Moving Consumer Goods
  • Fashion Goods,
  • Hardlines & Leisure Goods.
  • Diversified.

A company is assigned to one of three specific product sectors if at least half of its sales are derived from that broadly defined product category. If none of the three specific product sectors account for at least 50 percent of a company’s sales, it is considered to be diversified.


The retail sector has recently experienced dramatic technological changes and substantial growth. For example, information technology (IT), such as point-of-sale systems and electronic

business transactions, enables retail stores to manage inventory more efficiently. However,several studies have pointed out that marketing channels in Asian countries are somewhat different from those in the USA and Europe. Many small, family-owned retailers are in operation, and therefore hypermarket density is comparatively low. In addition, in terms

of investment in IT, Asian retail sectors have lagged behind the USA and the EU. The retail and wholesale services sectors (also known as distributive trades) employ nearly 33 million

people. They contributed €1,160 billion to the EU value added in 2011.Retail services are a key intermediary service in the modern economy acting as the conduit between thousands of

product suppliers and consumers. Most consumers in Europe benefit from the EU integrated retail market by buying goods from other Member States in their local shops.





The retail sector is also one of the biggest users of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), and thus a driver of innovation. It has a major role to play in the development

of a sustainable economy and also in allowing citizens to face the current economic downturn by giving them easy access to affordable and good quality consumables.





When it comes to retail, the classic point-of-sale attacks have been surpassed by their virtual counterpart: e-commerce attacks emerged as a growing trend during 2012, becoming the

number one targeted asset and accounting for 48% of all investigations. Further, the report found that the two most noteworthy methods of intrusion – SQL injection and remote access – made up 73% of the infiltration methods used. Most victim organizations still rely


on third parties, customers, law enforcement or a regulatory body to notify them a breach has occurred – a worldwide security problem. In particular, businesses seem to be rapidly adopting an outsourced, third-party information technology operations model. A majority (63%) of investigations revealed a third party responsible for system support, development or

maintenance, introduced security deficiencies easily exploited by hackers.


Country Attractiveness: Based on weighted score of market attractiveness, market saturation and time pressure of top 30 countries, we easily see the best retial market potential in the

Manufacturing:


The global manufacturing sector has undergone a tumultuous decade: large developing economies leaped into the first tier of manufacturing nations, a severe recession choked off

demand, and manufacturing employment fell at an accelerated rate in advanced economies. Still, manufacturing remains critically important to both the developing and the advanced

world. In the former, it continues to provide a pathway from subsistence agriculture to rising incomes and living standards. In the latter, it remains a vital source of innovation and

competitiveness, making outsized contributions to research and development, exports, and productivity growth. But the manufacturing sector has changed—bringing both opportunities

and challenges—and neither business leaders nor policy makers can rely on old responses in the new manufacturing environment.

Logistics & Supply Chain:


The fortunes of the transport and logistics industry are closely connected to the economic cycle. When economic activity is buoyant, demand for transport and logistics services is equally strong. Consumer and business demand for goods and services inevitably translates into higher demand for transport and logistics services.  The global transportation and logistics industry is in urgent need of a radical transformation if it is to stay competitive and attract skilled people.





Demographic changes pose a dramatic threat to the business models of many transport and logistics companies. Transportation and logistics companies are lagging behind other sectors in terms of recruiting and hiring. SMEs in particular are not regarded as the preferred employers of the future. The transportation and logistics industry will fall short of taking full advantage of the significant benefits that gender and cultural diversity can offer. Future job seekers still won't see transportation and logistics as a desirable industry. To stand out, transportation and logistics companies must proactively manage their company brand. Therefore at Valuelinked we provide the span of a wide range of services:


Introduction of new technical devices to improve working conditions Change how companies organize and implement learning and education Help companies better recruit and attract skilled talent.
