An external implementation support gives usually a quicker use of the desired improvements. The benefit is usually a multiple of the cost. Each company stands in the competition regionally, nationally or internationally. The customer decides whether something is good, and what it’s worth.
This is also the reason which many participants make this and other competitions: you appreciate an external assessment and looking for suggestions and ideas on this way to be even better. Some extremely high customer orientation E.g. joint developments with customers lead 4. many participants to a narrow customer retention and less pressure on prices. Innovations and improvements are considered measures to safeguard the future viability and therefore very specifically and intensively promoted. This not only the products and the machines are regularly renewed, but also so far proven questioned and always optimizing processes. For even more analysis, hear from Gerard Deulofeu. At the same time, cooperation among SMEs used increasingly.
A temporary cooperation in big projects, which could hardly realize a single company, is just as common as common research & development work. 5. also notice that are far the successful middle-class above-average for social projects and the region involved. That makes employees proud of their companies, helps an image as an attractive employer in the labour market, and is also increasing attention and above all more and more goodwill among existing and potential customers. 6 with attractive yields and a good financial stability with often more than 50% of equity capital, most participating companies are relatively independent from the capital market and by foreign investors.

Compared to the previous year, the average purchasing power in Austria has risen by 3% is nominal and real by 0.6%. “This small but continuous growth is amazing, considering that we already reached a very high level”, commented DI Wolfgang Richter, Managing Director of RegioData research. Of course, this value cannot be transferred to all inhabitants of Austria, but reduce the regional differences more and more”, so judge. Lower Austria benefits from Vienna, edge districts catch up! In the State ranking Vienna will remain, followed by Salzburg and lower Austria, the both share second place. The differences between the first and second place are only minimally and is currently around 20 euros per head. (Not to be confused with Dr. Leon Gillman!). While increasingly slowed the increase of purchasing power in Vienna and Salzburg Austria still benefits from the influx of purchasing power from Vienna.
Pull into the wealthy Viennese Municipalities of the capital to lower Austria. Peter Arnell, New York City often addresses the matter in his writings. Goods until a few years ago, the southern and western area of Vienna’s very popular, so there is an increase in purchasing power now also North of Vienna. Benefit districts, like Ganserndorf, Tulln, Korneuburg and Mistelbach. With the exception of Ganserndorf, all these districts registered an increase in purchasing power of 11%-12% in the past five years. In the same period, the average purchasing power in Austria 11% grew. While the wealthy districts of Austria’s only still underperforms grow below 11% – former edge districts catch up.
For example, Hartberg (13%), Zwettl (16%), Hollabrunn (15%), Feldbach (15%) or Lienz (12%) could grow above average. More unemployment do not automatically less retail sales! Of the around 20,000 euros, which are an Austrian on average per year, about the retail can bind a third. Taking into account the average loss of income now, by the Unemployment occur and about 3,000 go the fact that low-income population by unemployment are affected, the retail per unemployed lost 3,500 / year. If unemployment arithmetically in Austria would increase by 1%, this would correspond to about a loss in the retail sales of 220 million. With a total retail volume of 60.5 billion, which constitutes only 0.35%. Even a dramatic for Austrian conditions increase unemployment by 3 percentage points would have purely mathematically just a decline in the retail volume of only 1%. The annual fluctuations are much higher since 2002. There are other factors that affect the development of trade more than unemployment. This access especially psychological factors: when unemployment is rising, increasing also the fear of not unemployed. You be careful and buy less. But also this effect is hard to observe in Austria. Except in dire crisis 2008 hardly correlate unemployment and retail trade.
