About ErgoBilt, Inc.
Ergobilt Inc (the Company) is a developer, manufacturer and marketer of customized, high-end ergonomic products that re-engineer the workplace and the home office by scientifically minimizing the physical stress imposed upon the human body. Its current product line primarily consists of four series of premium-priced, ergonomic office chairs, marketed under the BodyBilt® tradename, which can be customized through proprietary modular designs to meet the needs of each customer.
BodyBilt® chairs are based on NASA research conducted during its SkyLab missions that identified the least stressful body position for astronauts during extended missions in space. BodyBilt® chairs have a 10-Point Posture Control -- system that allows each individual user to assume a posture similar to the stress-free posture of astronauts in space.
The Company is also the licensee of certain hardware and software for voice-to-text transcription and data capture which are sold under the name "IMPACTwriter". This technology significantly reduces the number of keystrokes needed for transcription.
In the mid-1970s, NASA collected detailed anthropometric data during successive SkyLab missions, including in-depth studies on posture. According to data published in NASA's Anthropometric Source Book, NASA discovered that when the body is placed in the weightless, or zero-gravity environment of space, it assumes a specific posture that is substantially different from a traditional upright or seated posture.
BodyBilt® chairs' contoured seats are made with multi-densities of foam strategically placed to distribute the user's body weight over a greater surface area. Additionally, the angle between the back rest and the seat structure can be adjusted to approximate the posture that the body assumes naturally in the gravity-free environment of space. Five different seat designs provide additional comfort for customers of various sizes and shapes. The back rests also contain multi-densities of strategically placed foam and are shaped to provide maximum support in the lumbar area. The personal Air Lumbar -- pump inflates the lumbar area, allowing the back rest to conform even more closely to the unique curvature of each person's back. The eight different arms available with all BodyBilt® chairs are designed for different workplace tasks and offer customers more choices to reduce neck and shoulder strain. Available armrests include the Linear Tracking Arm -- and Pivot Arm -- for specialized applications, including medical, micro-surgical and desk-top needs. The 3-Way Arm mechanism allows for proper arm support which can help the user avoid repetitive stress injuries.
The Company manufactures BodyBilt® chairs designed for non-managerial task workers (J Task Series), managerial task workers (J-Manager Series), managers and executives (K Series) and "Big & Tall" workers (S Series). These chairs are capable of supporting persons weighing up to 350 pounds. The Company's collection of BodyBilt® chairs meets and often exceeds the current ergonomic standards in seating design, from American National Standards Institute -- Human Factors Society 100-88 to those proposed by OSHA.
The modular design of the BodyBilt® chairs allows each customer to create a custom chair, selecting from more than 1,600 possible combinations of arms, backrests, headrests, seats and bases, in addition to style and fabric choices. The Company has been able to provide this myriad of choices to the customer without maintaining excessive inventory levels as a result of its use of interchangeable parts. The Company generally can deliver a customized BodyBilt® chair to the customer in less than four weeks, about one-half the time required by large manufacturers.
BodyBilt® chairs are warranted against defects in materials or work quality as follows: seven years on the base, the steel structure of the mechanism and the backrest post; five years on the casters, clutch plates, torsion springs, handles, seat and backrest plastic structure, backrest height adjuster, foam, polyurethane arm pads, pneumatic height cylinder, armrest structure and all welds; and two years on the Air Lumbar -- pillow.
The Company's largest customers include Hewlett Packard, Boeing Commercial Aircraft Company and Texas Instruments, Inc.
The Company faces significant competition from Herman Miller, Inc., Steelcase Design Partnership and Haworth Group, Inc.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
