I vehemently doubt that one can successfully talk about electronic devices without mentioning Sony in the mix. Sony, an household name in the history of electronic devices? If a home does not own a Sony television, then they will own a Sony DVD player or at least a Sony wireless speaker. So it is in the light of this, that we are bringing you all you need to know about a Sony Multi Channel Home Theatre, as it is one of the best buys in the market of home theatres.
About the Sony Brand (Sony Corporation)
Sony Group Corporation which the majority simply know as Sony is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation that majors in the manufacturing of consumer and professional electronic products.
Sony operates in 46 countries, has 61 office locations and is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.
The company began as an electronics shop in 1946 by Masaru Ibuka with a total of eight employees(what they say about humble beginnings), and was known as Tokyo Tshushin Kogyo Limited from inception to 1957. Then, after it began to gain popularity and non-Japanese were unable to pronounce its name, it was then changed to Sony Corporation in 1958 and still bears so till date. Sony is 75years going strong(Wow, that’s hooooge!).
Apparently, the name Sony came from two words. One was the Latin word “Sonus” which is the root word of sonic and sounds and the other was “Sonny”, which was a common slang term in the 1950s America to call a young boy.
It happened, that Japan loaned the word and came up with ” Sonny boys” which connotes smart and presentable young men, which was a suitable way to describe the young men who founded Sony, Akio Morita and Masaru Ibuka.
The Sony brand believes that organizational culture is synonymous with customer satisfaction and this emphasis on customer satisfaction shows the company’s efforts in understanding and addressing what customers needs or wants. They do this while considering three major factors(customer’s viewpoint, voice of customer, and customer’s expectation).
The following characteristics are the pillars of Sony’s organizational culture;
- Reliable (customer’s viewpoints and expectations).
- Credible(customer’s viewpoints and voice of customers).
- Cordial (voice of customer and customer’s expectation).
Now, did you know? That Sony is remarkably well known as the largest video console manufacturer and the largest video game publisher? Well, now you know(if you didn’t already).
Although Sony corporation is the electronics business unit and the parent company of the Sony Group as it primarily conducts planning, designing, and marketing for electronics products. The corporation has other subsidiaries under it and they include;
- Sony Electronics
