EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

In each and every management training scheme there is a provision for real time job experience within

the academics time period. It calls as summer training or corporate training or corporate interaction; the

main aim of this to introduce to the corporate arena. This training is to utilize and implement the

theoretical knowledge of the classroom into real corporate world. It is well said, Nothing is much

practical than a good theory but on the very same we cant deny practical is better than theory.

These phrases are opposing each other but also are complementary to each other. Experiencing both in a

good dedicated manner really plays a lot in ones professional carrier.

In the field of marketing the scenario is no exception. Field exposure is very much necessary for the

student of marketing too. In this stream of business the application of theory is very frequent. From

consumer behavior to consumer satisfaction all the theory can be experienced in a day spend in the field

of marketing. Marketing is now so much diversified that now it can be done by mere use of cell phone or

by internet, but experiencing the real marketing tactics is only possible by working in the field. Therefore

I am really to my college and Carry Soft Pvt. Ltd Company for providing me with this opportunity.

It is obvious that to remain competitive the corporate marketing strategy must aim to create and retain a

satisfied customer. This is possible only when the firm adds value to the customer should perceive this

customer. The customer should perceive this value to be distinctively more than the firms rivals. When

this happens, the firm gets a premium on its product on emerges as a market leader.

This is true for all the products. Even though it is more visible in industrial products, in the form of

customer training, updating technology, at a low cost for the customer, on site servicing to ensure zero

down time in the customer manufacturing facilities etc in consumer goods too, value in perceived when

the product service the needs for which it is brought.

I am trying to the study the Customer Satisfaction of Water Purifiers of Carry Soft Pvt. Ltd in the

project. I hope my study will help Carry Soft (P) Ltd.

MARKET RESARCH

INTRODUCTION
Usually it is said that if marketing would be a train, than market research would be the locomotive. In

other words, market research should ideally be the starting point on any marketing exercise. Conducting

any marketing exercise- is it related to pricing, promotion or distribution of a product or service. Without

researching the potential market is as sensible as setting out sell sand in the Sahara Desert.

Market research provides the answers to all the questions that generally occupy the minds of marketers,

at every stage of the marketing process.

GROWTH TRENDS IN MARKET RESEARCH


India, fastest growing market research industry in the world, with growth rates at around 31 % (2009-10).

China is a distant second growing at 20%. The size of the industry if of 595 crore, but the industry is growing

rapidly with a lot of business coming from overseas. The business coming from overseas from overseas

involves lot of outsourcing as cost advantages are enormous; the processing of data is almost 50% cheaper in

India than in developed countries. The outsourcing business amounts to almost for the 8% industry and this

figure is doubling in value every year.

SCOPE OF MARKET RESEARCH


Many people think that market research is just a consumer survey, asking consumer about certain

product or services. Though consumer research is an integral part of marketing research, the latters quite

a pervasive activity, conveying the various types of marketing problems that confront the marketing

manager. There are various discussion confined to the market research which are as follows-

Product Research

Sales Research

Customer Research

Pricing Research

Advertising Research

SERVICE QUALITY

Service quality is not easy to measure in a precise manner. The nature and characteristics of

services can have an impact on quality issues: There are many definitions of Service quality.

The customers overall judgment of service quality can be an evaluation of both the process and

the outcome, compared with the customers own expectations and desired benefits. This leads to an

important idea in assessing quality from a services marketing perspective: perceived service quality.

Perceived service quality represents the customers judgment of an organizations service based

on their overall experience of the service. Understanding how customers arrive at this judgment - that is

to say, how they decide whether or not they are satisfied with Carry Soft (P) Ltd. Service - is very

important for services quality management.

DETERMINATE OF SERVICE QUALITY

1. Reliability: The ability to perform the promised service dependably and accurately.

2. Responsiveness: The willingness to help customer and to provide prompt service.

3. Assurance: The knowledge and courtesy of employees and their ability to convey trust and

confidence.

4. Empathy: The provision of caring, individualized attention to customers.

5. Tangibles: The appearance of physical facilities, equipment, personnel, and communication

material.

Various studies have shown that well managed service companies share the following common practices

a strategic concept, a history of top management commitment to quality, high standards, self-service

technologies, systems, for monitoring service performence and customer complaints, and an emphasis on

customer satisfaction.

11 | P a g e
NEW SERVICE DEVELOPMENT

Those products that are designed and introduce via the step in a structured planning framework have

a greater likelihood of ultimate success than those not developed within a framework, the fact that

services are intangible makes it even more imperative for a new service development system to have four

basic characteristic

It must be objective, not subjective.

It must be precise, not vague.

It must be fact driven, not opinion driven.

It must be methodological, not philosophical.

CUSTOMER FOCUS

Quality begins with customer and also ends with them. Days when organization and customers were

treated as two different entities. The marketplace has become very competitive, and it is no longer

possible to run a business without strong focus on the customer. Show this relationship.

IDENTIFICATION OF CUSTOMER GROUP

A customer is one who purchases a product or service. There are two types of customers

internal and external.

An external customer exists outside the organization and buys its product and services.

Employees in the organization must know how their jobs enhance the total satisfaction of the external

customer. An internal customer is important as external customer.

External customers are people who ultimately consume the final product like the common people.

Internal customers include each employee working in the organization.

CUSTOMER PERCEPTION OF QUALITY

One of the basic concepts of the service quality is continuous process improvement. The concept

implies that there is no acceptable quality level because the customers needs, values and expectation are

constantly changing and becoming more dependent. These are:

Performance

Feature

Service

Warranty

Price

Reputation

13 | P a g e
CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

Is not a one time effort. It is an ongoing and active prbing of customer. Feedback enables the

organization to:

1) Discover customer dissatisfaction

2) Discover the relative priorities of quality

3) Compare its performance with competition

4) Identify customer needs.

5) Determine opportunities for improvement.

COMMENT CARDS

A low cost method of obtaining customer feedback involves a comment card, is attached to the

warranty card and include with the time of purchase. The intent of the card is to get simple information

such as name, address, age, occupation and the factors

SURVEY

This tool is in the form of a questionnaire where the customer is asked to furnish answer relating to the

quality of product and services. To make survey more useful must be remember the following:

1. Customer are not the same

2. Survey raise the customer expectation

3. The more specific the question

4. Before the data is collected, you know how you want to analysis and use it.

14 | P a g e
FOCUS GROUPS

A focus groups is a research method use to find out what the customer are really thinking. A group of

customer is assembled in ameeting room to answer a series of question. The moderator, understands

clearly the type of information that must be elicited and a plain to obtain it. Meetings are designed

tofocus on the current, proposed and future product and services.

TOLL FREE TELEPHONE NUMBER

Toll Free service Phone number 3988 3333 are an effective technique for receiving

complaints. Organisations can respond faster to the complaint without incurring a lot of expenses.

Such a number does not, however, reach those who decide not to buy the product or thosee who

discover some likeable features in a competitors product. Toll free number are used by, at least,

50 percent of organisation with sales of at least $10 million.

CUSTOMER VISITS

Visit to a customers place of business provides another way of gathering information. An

organization can pro-actively monitor the performance of its product while it is in use. It can, thereby

identify any specific problems. Senior managers should be involved in these visits and not delegate them

to someone else. However it is a good idea to take along operating personnel so that they can see first and

how the product is performing.

15 | P a g e
REPORT CARD

Another very effective tool is the report card. It is usually sent to each customer on a quality basis.

Data is analyzed to determine areas for improvement.

CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR:

In todays challenging and competitive world of fast changing technology, consumer tastes are

also characterized by fast changes. So to survive in the market the firms have to be in touch with the

changing consumer preferences. Marketers have to understand consumer behavior and factors influencing

in the buying behavior of the customers in order to be successful in this dynamic and competitive

environment.

MEANING OF CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR:

Consumer behavior is the behavior that the consumer display while searching for, evaluating,

purchasing and disposing of products and services that they expect will satisfy their needs. Consumer

behaviors are the study of how consumer makes their decisions to spend their resources on consumption

related items i.e. time, efforts and money. Study of consumer behavior proves the marketers an insight

regarding the consumer preferences and helps them in effective market segmentation and targeting. The

importance of consumer behavior lies in the fact that behavior can be understood and influenced to ensure

a positive purchase decision. So around understanding of consumer behavior is necessary for long run

success of any marketing program. Thats why the marketing managers interest lies exactly in

understanding consumer behavior to ensure that his marketing strategy results in purchase of product.

DETERMINANTS OF CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR:

The study of consumer behavior is quite complex, because of many variables involved and their tendency

to interest with and influences each other. The main determinants of consumer behavior are:

17 | P a g e
1. External Variables

2. Individual determinants of Consumer Behavior

1. External Variables : The external environment is made up of various influences such as:

Culture

Sub culture

Social class

Family

Reference groups

Personal factors such as age and life cycle, education, occupation, life style, personality, etc.

These all are major determinants of consumer behavior.

2. Individual Determinants of Consumer Behavior: The individual determinants of consumer

behavior are:

Personality and Self Concept

Motivation and involvement

Learning

Memory

Attitude

18 | P a g e
CUSTOMER:

A customer (also known as a client, buyer, or purchaser) is usually used to refer to a current or potential

buyer or user of the products of an individual or organization, called the supplier, seller, or vendor. This is

typically through purchasing or renting goods or services. However, in certain contexts, the term customer

also includes by extension any entity that uses or experiences the services of another. A customer may

also be a viewer of the product or service that is being sold despite deciding not to buy them. The general

distinction between a customer and a client is that a customer purchases products, whereas a client

purchases services.

The word derives from "custom," meaning "habit"; a customer was someone who frequented a particular

shop, who made it a habit to purchase goods of the sort the shop sold their rather than elsewhere, and

with whom the shopkeeper had to maintain a relationship to keep his or her "custom," meaning expected

purchases in the future.

The slogans "the customer is king" or "the customer is god" or "the customer is always right" indicate the

importance of customers to businesses although the last expression is sometimes used ironically.

However, "customer" also has a more generalized meaning as in customer service and a less

commercialized meaning in not-for-profit areas. To avoid unwanted implications in some areas such as

government services, community services, and education, the term "customer" is sometimes substituted

by words such as "constituent" or "stakeholder". This is done to address concerns that the word

"customer" implies a narrowly commercial relationship involving the purchase of products and services.

However, some managers in this environment, in which the emphasis is on being helpful to the people

one is dealing with rather than on commercial sales, comfortably use the word "customer" to both

internal and external customers.

19 | P a g e
OBSOLETE meaning: In the early 17th century customer was defined as a "common prostitute". This

meaning is important for understanding historical literary works. ("I marry her! What, a

customer?")Othello, or ("I think thee now a common customer") All's Well that Ends Well.[1] Today the

meaning of "customer" has been inverted in this usage.

Consumer is a broad label for any individuals or households that use goods and services generated within

the economy. The concept of a consumer occurs in different contexts, so that the usage and significance

of the term may vary.

IN ECONOMICS AND MARKETING:

The "consumer" is the one who consumes the goods and services produced. As such, consumers play a

vital role in the economic system of a nation because in the absence of the effective demand that

emanates from them, the economy virtually collapses. Mahatma Gandhi said a customer is the most

important visitor in our premises. He is not dependent on us, we are on him. He is not an interruption to

our work; he is the purpose of it.

Typically when business people and economists talk of consumers they are talking about person as

consumer, an aggregated commodity item with little individuality other than that expressed in the

buy/not-buy decision. However there is a trend in marketing to individualize the concept. Instead of

generating broad demographic profiles and psycho-graphic profiles of market segments, marketers have

started to engage in personalized marketing, permission marketing, and mass customization.

There is increasing backlash from the public over use of the label "consumer" rather than "customer",

with many finding it offensive and derogatory.

20 | P a g e
IN LAW AND POLITICS:

The law primarily uses the notion of "consumer" in relation to consumer protection laws, and the

definition of consumer is often restricted to living persons (i.e. not corporations or businesses) and

excludes commercial users. A typical legal rationale for protecting the consumer is based on the notion of

policing market failures and inefficiencies, such as inequalities of bargaining power between a consumer

and a business. As of all potential voters are also consumers, consumer protection takes on a clear

political significance.

Concern over the interests of consumers has also spawned much activism, as well as incorporation of

consumer education into school curricula there are also various non-profit

Publications, such as Consumer Reports and Choice Magazine, dedicated to assist in consumer education

and decision making, and Consumer Direct in the UK.

In India, the Consumer Protection Act 1986 clearly differentiates a consumer as consuming a commodity

or service either for his personal domestic use or to earn his livelihood. Only consumers are protected as

per this act and any person, entity or organization purchasing a commodity for commercial reasons are

exempted from any benefits of this act. Furthermore, Indian case law has quite a few references on how

to distinguish a consumer from a customer.

21 | P a g e
CUSTOMER SATISFACTION:

Frequently used in marketing, is a measure of how products and services supplied by a company meet or

surpass customer expectation. Customer satisfaction is defined as "the number of customers, or

percentage of total customers, whose reported experience with a firm, its products, or its services

(ratings) exceeds specified satisfaction goals.

It is seen as a key performance indicator within business and is part of the four of a Balanced

Scorecard. In a competitive marketplace where businesses compete for customers, customer

satisfaction is seen as a key differentiator and increasingly has become a key element of business

strategy.

Within organizations, customer satisfaction ratings can have powerful effects. They focus employees on

the importance of fulfilling customers expectations. Furthermore, when these ratings dip, they warn of

problems that can affect sales and profitability. These metrics quantify an important dynamic. When a

brand has loyal customers, it gains positive word-of-mouth marketing, which is both free and highly

effective.

22 | P a g e
Therefore, it is essential for businesses to effectively manage customer satisfaction. To be able do this,

firms need reliable and reprehensive measures of satisfaction.

In researching satisfaction, firms generally ask customers whether their product or service has met or

exceeded expectations. Thus, expectations are a key factor behind satisfaction. When customers have

high expectations and the reality falls short, they will be disappointed and will likely rate their experience

as less than satisfying. For this reason, a luxury resort, for example, might receive a lower satisfaction

rating than a budget moteleven though its facilities and service would be deemed superior in

absolute terms.

The importance of customer satisfaction diminishes when a firm has increased bargaining power. For

example, cell phone plan providers, such as AT&T and Verizon, participate in an industry that is an

oligopoly, where only a few suppliers of a certain product or service exist. As such, many cell phone plan

contracts have a lot of fine print with provisions that they would never get away if there were, say, a

hundred cell phone plan providers, because customer satisfaction would be way too low, and customers

would easily have the option of leaving for a better contract offer.

There is a substantial body of empirical literature that establishes the benefits of customer satisfaction for

firm

LIMITATION

Limitations of study and difficulties encountered:

Nothing in this universe is free from Limitations and present project is not an Acceptation to it. Due to certain

restrictions on the part of potential customers as well as actual customers and Suppressed and based responses from

them, appropriate Figure for relevant data and their interpretation precisely this has been my personal experience

while carrying out the present study. Some of the limitations I found and difficulties encountered can be enumerated

as under:

Since the study was done in localizer area so the sample selected may not give true picture.

The time period allotted for the study was limited as it had to be completed with this stipulated
period of time.

Some people dont give the remarkable answer, so the surveyor has to make his own
assumption
The salesmen at the outlets showed their discontent with the tight schedule.

Most of the retail respondents showed their discontent with the company for its unsystematic distribution,

replacement, short supply, incentives, and margin and so they were reluctant to talk about the company.

People of the region were not conscious about the survey, so they were not much supportive.

Many people do not know themselves why they use any particular brand as their answer was we
use brand because we like it so the actual reason behind their liking was not confirmed.
Many retailers do not like to interact because of their business. People are not interested to fill
questionnaire as they think it wastage of time, this is again because of less scope of research in
India

CONCLUSION
Most of the customers purchase decision depends upon the quality of the milk and price of milk.
Time availability also affects their purchasing decisions. Customer is fully satisfied with its
distribution channel, time availability, and other facility so keeping that in view I suggest PARAG
to adopt following strategies:

PARAG has to maintain quality of the milk and try to improve it.

52 | P a g e
The organization has to work in such a way so as to reduce the cost of milk which in turn

will result in reduction in price.

The packing of the product should be more attractive, because during survey it was

observed that packing attracts many customers.

PARAG should give their retailers Refrigerators on installments for which many of the

retailers are ready to pay; many of retailers are not keeping milk because of unavailability

of refrigerators.

Steps should be taken to ensure 24hour availability of milk.

At many locations there is unavailability of milk; retailers should be motivated to work

with Parag.

Parag should also make use of advertisement measures.

Sales promotional measures should be taken to cover up retailers, because during survey it

was observed that many customers use milk which is available at their nearest shop

irrespective of brand.

The poly bags used by Parag are less attractive and many written things are invisible, as

many customers complained that the poly bag used by Parag seems substandard,

unsecured and unhygienic. Therefore Parag should mostly change packaging of milk.

Parag should support their milk bags with customer care numbers to invite complaints,

queries, questions and suggestions from customers.

Parag should adopt the home delivery system, because during survey most of the

Customers suggested for home delivery of milk.

RECOMMENDATION AND SUGESTION

Parag offer some extra benefit to his customer and supplier.

53 | P a g e
Parag should change the packing of as it is not attractive and do not seems to be standard and

hygienic.

Parag should make 24hour availability of milk in the market in order to improve their Sales.

Parag should offer home delivery services to Increase sales

Parag milk should be kept available at every shop.

Parag should offer refrigerators on installments to retailers.

Parag should give emphasis on Punctuality and regularity in the Supply of milk.

Parag should offer some extra benefit to his customer and supplier.

Parag offer promotional schemes to retailers as free sample, gift packs etc.

The organization should do proper arrangement of milk at the time of festivals etc.

Parag should launch some new products also.

Parag should emphasize on provide better quality than others instead of increasing the sale.

Parag should increase the number of retail shops, where the retail shops of Parag is not available.

Parag should emphasize on advertisement also.
