The Brief

Japan's leading manufacturer of wound care and ostomy products appointed Intralink to assess the opportunity for its products in China and to develop a channel strategy through the appointment of a master distributor.

The Approach

Intralink focused on China's largest cities and met with senior managers inside competitors, distributors and hospitals to deliver an in-depth analysis of China’s ostomy market. At the same time, we identified and evaluated potential channel partners for the client in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.

The Outcome

>Intralink managed the negotiations with the preferred channel partner, successfully concluding a distribution agreement. The final agreement included sales targets, a commitment by the partner to marketing spend, and roll-out schedules for the company's products. Intralink continued to manage the relationship with the partner till the client was ready to assume direct control.
