The primary objective of the study was to understand the back-end operational processes in the supply chain within retail industry and how re-ordering system can further strengthen the revenue earnings and customer confidence. The opportunity was to work at HyperCITY (in the store located in Malad), which is one of the India’s biggest hypermarkets chain. The HyperCITY, Malad store is spread over 1,200,000 sq. ft. and offers over 44,000 products sourced from both local & global markets named One of the striking factors revealed during the learning process at HyperCITY (Malad) was that though the store offers 44,000 products over the counters not all can be physically displayed. Certain high-value niche products desired by the customers are seldom available due to very slow shelf-turnover rate. In such a case, the customer tends to search the product in the local alternative stores or in the competitor’s space. In basic economics term, these are opportunity loss for HyperCITY which is equivalent to a form of opportunity cost. And, it is equally impossible for the store to maintain the stock of entire 44,000 products in the store warehouse and on the shelf for the limited space available. Primary survey has been conducted at the store for a random sample of 800 to ascertain proximate percentage of revenue loss that happens at HyperCITY due to the nonavailability of such limited products. Further an analysis was done on the percentage of customers who tend to explore the alternative or competitive space for the nonavailable products at the store. To tackle with this problem and to eventually arrest the revenue loss at HyperCITY, a new re-ordering process has been designed which would be offer the customers a facility to place an order for the product not found from their shopping list and receive that product within 48 hours at their home or in the store or receive information about the product availability in the store. Simultaneously it would also provide an option for the store to sell those products which is currently not available with them. In order to find out the effectiveness of reordering process and their acceptability by HyperCITY customers or any additional service for enhancing the customer experience the questionnaire also included specific questions. After analyzing the data obtained and extrapolating to the average number of daily footfalls in the Malad store, interesting information is revealed that  Daily 3960 HyperCITY customer did not find at least one product from their shopping list  HyperCITY loses an opportunity to sell goods of Rs.528522 every day which is nearly 7% of its sales target

 Daily 8058 customer visit HyperCITY who did not buy any alternative if they not find the product they wanted to buy.  60% of the sales lost by HyperCITY is realized by the competitors like D-mart, star bazaar, food bazaar, Spencer, etc. located within the catchment area and 40% is realized by the local kirana stores.  Nearly 3823 customers use the reordering process daily which generate revenue worth Rs.515608.  Customer did not like the change in the product location also they feel great in using the service which helps them to identify product location. Based on analysis and findings, the project recommends HyperCITY (Malad) to start reordering system which may help to recover sales target deficit happening every month. The home delivery system instituted will further strengthen the strategic position of HyperCITY vis-à-vis its competitors. The recommendations based on observational findings towards enhancing customer experience at HyperCITY (Malad) could be  Improving customer guidance system (may be an information kiosk)  Reduce queues at billing counters (by multiple segregations in terms of card, coupons and cash remittances)


Retailing in India is one of the business enterprises of its economy and account for 14 to 15% of its GDP. The Indian retail market is estimated to be US$450 billion and one of the top five retail markets in the world. India is one of the fastest growing retail markets in the world. India’s retailing industry is essential owner manned small shops account for more than 90%. In 2010, larger format convenience stores and supermarkets accounted for about 4% of the industry and these were present only in large urban centers. Until 2011, Indian Central Government denied Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in multibrand retail, forbidding foreign groups from any ownership in supermarket, convenience stores or any retail outlets. Even single-brand retail was limited to 51% ownership and a bureaucratic process. In November 2011, India’s Central Government announced retail reforms for both multi-brand stores and single-brand stores. These market reforms paved the way for retail innovation and competition with multi-brand retailers such as Wal-mart, Carrefour and Tesco, as well single brand major such as IKEA, Nike, and Apple. The statement flickers intense activism, both in opposition and in support of the reforms. In December 2011, under pressure from the opposition, Indian Government placed the retail reforms on hold till it reaches a consensus. In January 2012, India approved reforms for single-brand stores welcoming anyone in the world to innovate in Indian retail market with 100% owner ship but imposed the requirement that the single brand retailer should source 30% of its goods from India. Indian Government continuedto hold on retail reforms for multi-brand stores till 13th September 2012.The Government of India (GOI) announced series of reforms on 14th September, 2012 in retail. The GOI

announcement was followed by notification from Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) through various press notes issued on 20th September, 2012. Liberalization of multi-brand retail (MBR) sector is one of the milestone steps taken in the direction of further liberalization of Indian economy. The GOI has approved foreign investment of up to 51% in MBRT under the government approval route i.e. prior approval of GOI is required. Although the non-resident investors are required to meet with certain other conditions such as minimum investment amount (US$100 million), local sourcing requirement (30%), minimum investment in backend infrastructure and geographical limitations, the move is an important step towards organizing India's largely unorganized retail sector. Apart from liberalizing MBRT sector, the GOI has also made important changes in the single brand retail trading (SBRT) sector. As per the revised policy, a) It is not mandatory to source from the 'small industries' in order to comply with the 30% local sourcing requirement b) Any non-resident single entity, whether owner of the brand or otherwise, can invest in the SBRT sector. The Indian retail industry is generally divided into organized and unorganized retailing. Organized retailing – organized retailing refers to trading activities undertaken by licensed retailers, those who have registered for sales tax, income tax, etc. These include corporate-backed hypermarket and retail chains, and also privately-owned large retail business. Hence, organized retail which now constitutes a small four percent of total retail sector is growing at a much faster pace of 45-50% per annum and quadruples its share in total retail trade to 16% by 2011-2012. Unorganized retailing- unorganized retailing refers to the traditional forms of low-cost retailing, for example, local kirana shops, owner-operated general stores, paan/beedi shops, convenience stores, hand cart and street vendors, etc. the unorganized retail sector is growing at about 10% per annum with sales rising from US$ 309 billion in 2006-07 to US$ 496 billion in 2011-12

The challenge in the retail industry is about anticipating and predicting the customer demands–which are basically a ‘push factor’ driven system. Customers get the opportunity to place an order for those products which they wanted to buy and currently not available in the store. this reordering system provides a platform to work on‘pull factor’ driven system – enabling a freedom to sell productsthat are currently out-of-stock. not only results in revenue loss but also a bad image in the customer minds.” Further. it may lead to dissatisfied customers which areequivalent to revenue loss.During the initial tenure of the project. the fact was revealed that many of the customers visited HyperCITY with their required shopping list and many of these products could be out-of-stock due to one of the following reasons. when such customers are unable to find their preferred products from the shopping list and unaware of how much time they need to wait to get those products they tend to visit other stores in search of these products.

So. few others Normally. The customers are ready to receive the products at home by paying suitable home delivery charges or agreed to collect from the store on the next visit to the store. Whereas.
