Marketing & Sales
The marketing department plays a vital role to the sales department. The main thrust is to make the product look and feel attractive enough to purchase. There are many things that the marketing department does. It creates and administers the advertising of a product...usually from conception to completion. In other words it develops the advertising campaign and works with the public relations department to place ads in various trade magazines and newspapers so that people and companies will see what you have. It develops the spec sheets that are used to promote interest at trade shows. It has responsibility for trade shows. Displaying the product, having literature ready, having the proper people
available to talk about the product. It develops campaigns to promote the product to distributors and customers. It develops the branding...for instance the
logo, the slogan, that will be used in advertising. It creates the kits or packaging that the product will be housed in. It is responsible for all press releases. To summarize, it creates the campaigns that make the product attractive to purchase.
Supply Chain Management System
Supply Chain Management is a cross functional approach to managing the movement of raw materials into an organization and movement of the finished goods out of the organization toward the end consumer. Supply Chain Management efforts start with the development and execution of a long-term supply chain strategy. Among other things, this strategy should: Identify what supply chains the firm wants to compete in Help managers understand how the firm will provide value to the supply chain Guide the selection of supply chain partners, including suppliers, subcontractors, transportation providers, and distributors
My Findings And Suggestions (Product side)
The commercial Dot Matrix Printers and POS terminal which was in the market has got all the relevant factors to capture consumer market. The strategy found out by TVS-E as well as its quality is satisfactory which has led to the success of the product. One suggestion is that more care and concern should be given to after sales service to retain the trust of existing customers. Also TVS-E should bring advertisement in print media and audio-video to attract more consumers towards brand and concentrate on semi urban areas and remote areas too. TVS-E has more visual identity, but it should work to create strong brand identity. TVSE should keep on bringing out new time attractive offers and schemes to increase brand value and attract customers. Exhibitions do not help to generate so much sells but they should be conducted regularly. This helps in generating awareness regarding the product in customers which ultimately helps in sales. Company should try to improve service. No doubt the company products have technically edge over competitors but in long run they have to build stronger strategies in selling and distribution.
I experienced Good Human Relation at TVS-E. More and more employee oriented programs and employee participating events should be carried out so that they can be emotionally attached to the organization.
