BMW-7-Series-2016

With the all-new BMW 7 Series, BMW has redefined what an exclusive, luxurious driving experience looks like in contemporary, pioneering form.

Ground-breaking technologies in the areas of lightweight design, powertrains, chassis, operating systems, intelligent connectivity and interior ambience underline its mission to bring together unbeatable driving pleasure and long-distance comfort in a luxury sedan.

The handing over of the baton from one generation to the next at the top end of BMW’s model line-up sees the brand presenting a raft of innovations unmatched by any of its rivals.

Whichever seat you occupy in the BMW 7 Series, you feel the contemporary and future-orientated atmosphere of luxurious wellbeing. A virtuosic composition of material, light, shape, colour and innovative technologies to accompany all occupants – be it from the rear or from the driver’s seat.

In Total Command

The instrument panel directed towards the driver in the BMW 7 Series provides the stage for technological innovations. BMW is the first manufacturer to offer Gesture Control so that essential commands can be given by hand movement.

Similarly intelligent are the advanced Voice control, the iDrive Touch Controller and, as an alternative, the Touch Display, which can be operated directly via the 10.25″ LCD colour display.

Depending on the driving mode selected, the displays in the instrument cluster behind the leather steering wheel are associated with different graphic symbols. The multifunction keys are formed three-dimensionally to provide an especially pleasant feel and are embedded in a polished chrome surface.

An elegant architecture with horizontal surfaces attracts the viewers gaze and captures it with the visual accents set by the Ambient light.

Travelling in Style

BMW-7-series-interior

In the rear, everything is directed towards travelling in a luxurious ambience. Passengers enjoy spacious comfort and a range of exclusive entertainment options. The removable Touch Command tablet provides a fully integrated control option for comfort and entertainment functions.

With the special equipment “Executive Lounge” the rear passenger on the same side as the front passenger can enjoy the journey in an especially relaxing position.

In addition, the Panorama glass roof Sky Lounge in the long version creates an open and light-filled sensation of space and can be illuminated if required in the colours of the Ambient light.

This is the ideal atmosphere in which to enjoy the outstanding studio-quality audio of the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond surround sound system with its 1,400 watt output.

Ultimate Refinement

The BMW 7 Series represents precision and quality craftsmanship at a supreme level. Evidence of this is the Floating Design Mirror: The side mirrors appear to grow organically out of the window outline. Modern and elegant in their effect, they also enhance the aerodynamics.

Other examples of genuine detail refinements are the Active air stream kidney grille with vertical slats in Chrome, the high-precision and powerfully distinctive appearance of the wheel design and the seamlessly incorporated Hofmeister kink.

On the inside, high-quality materials such as chrome with interior trims in Poplar Grain Grey fine-wood finish and seats with upholstery such as exclusive ‘Nappa’ leather in Ivory White create a harmonious combination. Also displaying a high level of craftsmanship is the instrument panel decorated by a continuous seam. Wood decorative trim and electroplated strip are individually matched during the production process so that a seamless overall picture is obtained.

The BMW Individual offering with exclusive colours and material schemes offers additional varied options for designing the BMW 7 Series. These include the upholstery colour fine-grained full Merino leather in Mediterranean Brown Tartufo with hand-crafted details such as the stitching in woven look, hand-braided piping and colour-contrasting seams.

Why Consider This Franchising Opportunity

healthy-smoothie-franchise

Extensive research into the business model and market

Puré Frooty Smoothie was an idea, researched widely, by people looking to simplify the business process for the consumer and business owner. There was a gap in the market for simplified customer service and a demand for a quicker turnaround time.

Simplified process for setting up a business

For an entrepreneur it can be very overwhelming to start or buy a new or existing business. There are so many crucial decisions that need to be made from the beginning and new concepts to adapt to.

Puré Frooty Smoothie simplifies that drastically:

  • Free-standing machines: The business model revolves around a free-standing vending machine which needs to be visited to refill and maintenance.
  • No shop-fitting required: There is no need for shop fittings or a large work force. All that is required is an inside space for the machine with a power supply.
  • Minimal human resources needed: In terms of a work force, you could either do it yourself or have one person to assist you. There is also a part time involvement where refill station teams can refill and maintain the machine.
  • Cashless business: The business is completely cashless so there are no worries of a note jam, full cash canister or insufficient denomination rand values. More importantly the machines would do a higher turnover than an ordinary vending machine so safety of no cash is important.
  • Easy tracking of stock and performance: A cloud-based system is linked to the point of sale which allows you to monitor your performance and stock from the back-office platform at any given time.
  • Efficient handling of maintenance: With a live point of sale system, the business is linked to a software which monitors the operations of the machine. Should anything malfunction an immediate notification will be sent with a diagnostics report.
  • Human error is eliminated: Everything is done with a computer which leaves little to no room for errors. It is self-order and very user friendly.

No time wasted for the consumer. In fact, it’s a learning session disguised as a waiting period. The machine has two wash cycles after every smoothie is made to be freshly prepared for the next smoothie, business hygiene is important.

Consumers live in the fast lane. We are looking for something quick and most times we would like to be healthier. With the hustle and bustle of today’s life every little bit helps. Puré Frooty Smoothie fills that gap in the market.
