With the new challenges.

given by the customers. which is against the rule of E-Auction method. Even some customer thinks there is partiality exist in selection of customer in Tender & E-Auction method as they are not selected many times even after biding high prices. .SUGGETION As BSP itself one of the most recognized and leading steel industry in India. But I would like to give suggestion to BSP only that it should increase its customer s base and market in the domestic area also. they think that the final declaration of selected customers announce in 5 days after the biding close. Marketing of Secondary products needs some attention from top level management. Some customers are not satisfy with the E-Auction policy. As per feedback from various local customers of secondary product. Keeping these in view it is not possible to give suggestion about BSP as it is one of the leading steel producers of country. Apart from that refund policy of secondary product is also not mature. Secondly. This department is producing great amount of revenue every year but again there are some problem facing by local customers. As per the survey on various consumers of secondary product at local area it shows that BSP s has some drawback in its secondary product s marketing strategy. they think that BSP is not giving the proper attention to local customers and ignores their needs. On the other hand. Its products are of high quality and it is sold not only in the domestic area of the country but its products are also exported to foreign countries. it takes very long time to refund the excess money. BSP is major contribution to export is Rail Mill products. so it should also pay his attention to other products also.
Steps to Improve the Customer Satisfaction in Local region (under 100 KM radius) Uniform Pricing Policy Tighten the Refund Method Regular Feed Back System Reducing the No. Increase the daily quota of sale. of Day of declaring Final Customer in EAuction method.So I would like to suggest marketing department of secondary product that they should take corrective steps against all above problem faced by local customers and gives an extra attention to local customers. (which currently is 200 tones) .
