Relationship Management

Mutually important as finding the right business partner is to establish and maintain a relationship based on mutual trust long-term. This is the key to guarantee good conditions with suppliers and manufacturers as well as building a loyal customer base. For enterprises with little resources this may prove challenging, often resulting in steep cost increases and unreliable business partners. At SwissTank, we specialize in managing business partner relationships and being our clients’ local presence, ensuring well-nourished and trusted relationships based on a deep understanding of the foreign business culture.

Cultural Conflict Resolution

When setting up or operating a business in another country, many potential threats can arise. Conflicts due to an insufficient understanding of the foreign culture and business etiquette as well as unreliable business partner can hurt any operation tremendously. At SwissTank, we have used our experiences in foreign business dealings to specialize in resolving cultural conflicts for our clients to ensure trusted long-term business partnerships and a smooth and efficient progression of our clients operations.

Project Oversight

While finding and maintaining trustworthy business partnerships are the key to starting successful operations globally, an efficient project management and on sight project oversight are needed to ensure an efficient and smooth progression of any operation. Foreign enterprises often fail to deploy sufficient resources to oversee foreign operations resulting in huge increases in inefficiency, delays and cost increases. At SwissTank, we can oversee your local operations and ensure efficient processes and constant progress in combination with tight budget and time-plan management.

Business Partner Acquisition

Due to strict government regulations, most business operations of foreign enterprises in some countries require a local business partner. Finding the right business partner requires patience and access to an extensive business network. Relationship building overseas takes time and business dealings will most of the time only start after a relationship of mutual trust has been established. At SwissTank we use our network of trusted business partners and extensive experience of operating globally to help you find the right partner for your endeavors.
