Quality Policy “Pinoys are generally dawn to brands, they always associate brands with quality. If you have a brand that is local sounding, chances are, it will have a weak following even if you have good quality products. Still, if you have a foreign-sounding brand but with low quality, Pinoys will not patronize the product” – Armand Chong, published on the Philippine Daily Inquirer
One strategic edge is choosing a foreign-sounding label with very good quality. With this, the people would be interested and will still come back to buy their products in the market. And from the name itself, the word balance describes their company’s eye for quality. “After all, shoes, to have a better fit, should be made with the element of balance. ” as said by Mr. Chong in the Newspaper. The company bought a SAP system for accounting and sales analysis. They send a team to check out the quality of the shoes while in the factory, for regular quality inspections.

To have a satisfied customer is the primary function of the business.
