Although BKI is a successful company, the CEO is being challenged with the decision to implement a new capital structure that would be best for the family company. Currently, they have no debt. Only twice in the past has the firm borrowed a substantial amount of money; both times, BKI paid off the debt as quickly as possible.

Business Driven Information Systems) Supplier Power: The Supplier’s power is low since there are many vendors to choose from. Keep looking for the best quality products at a very competitive price.
A complete financial analysis of La Paloma reveals a different picture than one of growth and strength, especially in the area of inventory costs, inventory turnover, and collection periods.

The Business profile mentioned that the average family size was 4 people and that the average family spends on average $4 on tokens. So as an average, for every 1 buffet purchased $1 was spent on tokens, which lead me to calculate the average customer spending $8 a visit.

The pricing strategy for easy Car was to offer rental cars for the lowest prices in the industry. Prices were updated daily based on demand and location and the lowest prices could only be found if booked well in advance. In order to keep costs down easyCar only rented one type of car at each location and did not work with agents. Almost 95% of all car bookings were made through the company’s website with the others made through a phone reservation system that carried a €0.95 per minute charge. Easy Car’s information system calculated expected demand and enabled the company to achieve a utilization rate above 90 percent; this figure was much higher than industry leader Avis Europe’s utilization rate of 68 percent.
