No. CyberDyne only conducts business with registered companies involved in the 'Trade'. Product is supplied exclusively to companies who purchase finished product for the sole purpose of re-sale and not for their own consumption. Dealer Applications that are completed by end users will not be processed.
'Fronting' occurs in the trade when an end user pretends to be running a business involved in the re-sale of our product. They will use a proper registered company as a 'front' to attempt to disguise the fact that they are ultimately an end user. Product purchased is typically only for their own consumption and not for re-sale and this is done in order to avoid having to pay the retail price for a product.
The simple answer to this question is that our business is all about volume distribution. To achieve the necessary scales of economy we need to receive regular orders from our customers. 'Fronting' in essence would be the same as supplying single unit quantities directly to the public. The associated costs and administrative overhead of such dealings, for the financial return is simply not viable. Furthermore each and every registered CyberDyne dealer is assigned a dedicated sales representative who makes regular site visits. End users who engage in 'Fronting' do not have fixed business premises and we thus are unable to service such accounts. We maximize our sales via our channel partners who in turn are optimized to deal directly with the end user / public.
The nature of our business is such that each and every customer we conduct business with is assigned a dedicated Sales representative. If the applicant is not trading from dedicated business premises then we cannot engage in a long term business relationship as the Sales representative is unable to make regular site visits. End users lack fixed business premises, while proper retailers and e-tailers have invested in premises infrastructure to support their business. Furthermore our products are best sold via high impact merchandising stands. Merchandising stands can obviously not be deployed to sites that lack the ability to retail. When we process a Dealer Application we take all these factors into consideration.
CyberDyne commenced business in 1996 as a retailer and we indeed supplied product directly to the public. At that time we operated a B2C (Business-to-Consumer) model, however with rapid expansion we migrated our business into manufacturing and this required a change in our business model. We now operate a B2B (Business-to-Business) model which involves Wholesale distribution. Our customers are involved in the Retail trade and their business model is optimized towards direct dealings with the public. Our success is built on our customers success and it is not ethical to claim we operate a B2B model, but then supply the public directly. All sales leads from the public are referred directly to the end users nearest CyberDyne stockist.
