Chervon Australia: EGO Self Propelled Mower
The Australian Business Award for New Product Innovation recognises new products and services that provide innovative solutions for new and existing market needs.
The EGO Power Plus Self Propelled Lawn Mower is the industry’s first cordless, rechargeable and self-propelled lawn mower. Built on the proven design and features of the EGO 56V Power Plus ARC Lithium platform, the new self-propelled model is a powerful and innovative alternative to traditional combustion engine self-propelled units. It offers the torque of petrol without the noise, fuss and fumes. Powered by the industry’s highest capacity and most advanced battery, it offers industry leading run time, rapid recharge times, power and performance.
The EGO Power Plus Self Propelled Lawn Mower also has many other appealing qualities. These include the mower having an intelligent integrated load sensor, a six position spring loaded deck-height adjustment, electric brake safety, a 70-litre catcher bag and the mower having a compact foldable design that supports vertical storage. The battery also has interchangeability within the EGO Power Plus System and the mower does not require regular oil, filter or spark plug replacement. The mower is suitable for both domestic and commercial use, whilst being suitable for mowing at any time. The mower is rated at 75 weighted decibels allowing it to be precluded from usual council restrictions. This paired with the LED headlights, enables users to mow in low light conditions.
Based on a close evaluation of the current local self-propelled market landscape, the product will be positioned as a medium price pointed product, to ensure that consumers include it during their decision making process. Customers with larger blocks, elderly users and commercial users are just some of the consumers that benefit from lawn mowers which feature integrated self-propulsion systems. These products help to reduce operator fatigue, as the units effectively push themselves up slopes, through weeds and/or thick grass, making mowing easier for the user.
The EGO Self Propelled Lawn Mower will be launching in the Australian market during August 2016. Chervon Australia is being recognised for a New Product Innovation award for this product in the Australian Business Awards 2016.
The Australian Business Awards are the regional chapter of an integrated, hierarchical leadership program conducted on a national and international level. Eligible organisations from each region are invited to participate in the international chapter of the program at The World Business Awards. Conducted annually and currently in the second year of its international launch, The World Business Awards seeks to engage with the world’s business, innovation and technology leaders through a global recognition and knowledge building initiative that is underpinned by the program’s established framework. The program engages with organisations worldwide to benchmark the full spectrum of their products, services and initiatives and to review their business performance. The cycle culminates in the recognition and celebration of organisations that implement world-class business initiatives and industry leading products and services on a prominent and far-reaching scale. All entries must be entered in the regional chapter where the organisation is based.
Organisational participation includes private companies, publicly listed companies, multinational subsidiaries, not-for-profit organisations, non-government organisations, educational institutions, franchise systems, partnerships, government departments, government agencies, local government and statutory bodies operating in Australia.
Initiatives can include but are not limited to projects, programs, processes, systems, technologies, developments, ventures and undertakings.
Entries are assessed utilising a robust and dynamic framework to ensure that the assessment process is pertinent and objective. The World Business Awards Framework (WBA Framework) is utilised as a structured model of assessment that enables the participating organisations to be benchmarked against world class performance standards. The Framework consists of specialised assessment modules pertaining to the evaluation criteria for each of the award categories. The criteria and sub-criteria provide a robust set of requirements that are used as the methodology for benchmarking and learning among the participating organisations.
Organisations that participate are provided with the unique opportunity to benchmark themselves against the top performers globally. The recipients are acknowledged for their achievements and recognised as the elite of their industry earning a place amongst a distinguished group by having their products, projects, initiatives, contributions and achievements recognised on a prominent and far-reaching scale. The program provides the ultimate platform for building knowledge, increasing brand awareness, equity, loyalty and retention through increased exposure, recognition and prestige. This establishes a valuable resource that can be used extensively to create opportunities for publicity, positive organisational profiling and heightened brand awareness within the respective industries both nationally and internationally.
