Think technology or manpower ???????

Think technology or manpower ??????? (#copied from #Guru)
Technology + manpower = disaster
This is can be called best example of how people think what they actually do???? Start ups put a brave face in spite of planning their business in most stupid fashion ……they want people to call them online firms ,e-commerce sites, app based platforms………..but can they deliver through apps …can computers interact with them as people do??????… Can online purchases give customers confidence of personal verification while purchasing stuff????? These questions remain as questions and people get down to business………. Fate of so called technologically strong business platforms finally lie with age old way of employing people………
THERE ARE 2 QUESTIONS REMAIN TO BE ANSWERED WHY ARE WE IN THIS MESS AND CAN WE GET OUT OF THIS MESS.
My answer is simple we are in this mess by choice
We can get out of this mess by making right choice.
Generally we use technology to outpace manpower and save cost or we use technology to decrease human errors or we use technology to reach people instantly……….but combination of manpower + technology is like inviting disaster why??????.
Technology does what it does and the way it is taught to do………technology has no time restrictions or hurdles or human emotion which can stop it from doing its work……this is recipe for disaster…..in e commerce business human power is tested in relation to technological power…….we expect humans to outrun technology……..we want lightning pace of work from humans which is impossible…..app can take order in seconds but it takes gigantic human effort to process it………time gap and accuracy between taking orders and processing is making best technological and operational brains to sweat…..they are clueless how to synchronize both ………..mmmmm this is the most juiciest part of whole e-commerce business.
Next death punch comes in the form of cost……..technology has no cost escalation problems or cost of maintaining technology is far cheaper than humans capital………cost of maintaining human capital is far more complex than maintaining stable technology ……
Most home delivery start ups employ people to get their goods delivered to their clients . office cost+ cost of maintaining & owning technology + material cost+transportation+salaries+taxes……..after all this a wobbling service .
Delivery boys salaries : 5000-8000rs
Support systems : 2000rs
Transport : 3000rs
So to deliver product to home we need 10,000rs fixed cost . so for a start up spending approximately 10,000 for simple delivery……….. a start up should take out this cost of delivery + other costs + product cost to arrive at profits ……………To make it clear this is what most home delivery firms go for and vanish without trace in year or two…….in most cases delivery costs eat into products original costs…. leave profits…….so a home delivery business is mode of employing delivery boys and look for ways to increase sales so that at least they cover their delivery costs …………this model is most sought after model and popular model…………..ushhhhhhh.
I wonder what these seminars with so called BIG SHOT CEO’S are all about have any one asked them way to get out of this mess??????…………..if you attend a seminar pls ask this question to a so called successful CEO ……….let him give satisfactory answer ………….. most CEO’s have become famous for raising funds and exiting successfully……… any CEO has solved this problem????….
IN KANNADA THERE IS A POPULAR SAYING …………HINGU MANGU IDDARE YAVU MUNDE ADRU ADIGE MADTHALE …………..MEANS ….. ANY BITCH CAN COOK GOOD FOOD IF ALL RESOURCES ARE IN PLACE (WHAT IS SO GREAT ABOUT THAT)
TIME HAS COME NOT TO HIDE PROBLEMS OF INDUSTRY UNDER HUGE PILE OF FUNDS BUT SOLVE THEM ONE BY ONE WITHOUT EMPLOYING HUGE RESOURCES .(#copied from #Guru)
