PREFACE
It is well evident that work experience is vital for every professional course. In the same way practical training in an organization is must for a management student. Without the practical exposure one cannot consider himself or herself as a qualified candidate. During the project period student can learn through his own experience, the real situation of the market and corporate world and can put his theoretical knowledge into practice. Therefore, to fulfill this requirement I completed my summer training in The Pinnacle Group Inc. Roorkee. After entering the organization I found all the classroom study as a useless thing but as I got familiar with the work I felt the need of my previous classroom study and I began to apply it in practical situation. I sincerely believe that there is no better place to learn this practical side of management than the industry itself.

2.3 Importance Of I.T. - ERP Q.1) Why is Information Technology Important in Business? There are many businesses which are in need of the software packages for satisfying their operational as well as functional needs. For fulfilling this requirement, these companies sign deals with the software manufacturing companies.

Information technology is useful in ensuring the smooth functioning of all the departments in a company such as the human resource department, finance department, manufacturing department and also in security related purposes. With the help of information technology, the companies in the automobile manufacturing sector are able to get rid of any sort of errors or mistakes in the proper functioning of the tools used for designing and manufacturing purposes. Due to the development of the information technology sector, the companies are being able to keep themselves aware of the changes in the global markets.

Q.2) Importance of Information Technology in Education


Importance of information technology in educational sector is well known. Information technology helps the students as well as the teachers in studying the course material easily because of fast access. Studying the subjects with the help of online libraries and dictionaries has made grasping and increasing the knowledge easy for the students. The inclusion of information technology in the syllabus in schools, colleges and universities has helped them in grasping the subject well and getting their basics cleared. Since, many educational centers have the online grading system, it has been a boon for the parents of the children to keep a tab on their performances. Parents can also get the details of the attendance record of their child in schools. Software and Applications Software is an important part of information technology which relates to computer applications that enable a company to generate, store, program, and retrieve data as and when needed. There are many softwares developed for different purposes. All operations in the business sector are carried out by software that are assigned for executing specific tasks. Without these computer applications the businesses wouldn't have been able to carry out their

functions in a proper and efficient manner. Operating systems, ERPs, special purpose applications, and web browsers are some examples of different softwares. There are some softwares which are exclusively built to contribute to the proper collaborative working of all sections of the businesses, which are known as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). These are complex applications which enable people to efficiently manage all functions and operations of all processes in the businesses.

Q.3) Running Technology

Businesses

with

Information

Small scale businesses need to buy software packages that would cater to their specific management, operational, and functional needs. For this purpose, they need to approach firms and IT manufacturers who deal in such software applications. Other IT services include Internet marketing and email marketing, web hosting and promotions, and maintaining client networks. Larger businesses on the other hand have their own operational and functional employees who develop software applications and work on several IT needs of the businesses. They usually purchase ERP softwares to coordinate different processes and functions into a single application, which is actually more convenient. Manufacturing businesses may make use of servers and databases to store their vast data regarding inventory, B2B, B2C, FMCG (in the retail business sector), etc. Automobile manufacturers use computers to guide manufacturing and designing tools to function in a precise manner, ruling out the possibilities of any human error. Businesses all around the globe have to take the aid of information technology in some way or the other to keep themselves in sync with the market and the world. There are

several departments in business organizations such as HR and recruitment, finance and payroll, administration, and security. All these departments utilize IT to carry out their respective operations in a productive manner and efficient manner. The information technology role in business sector certainly is of a great importance, which enables businesses to effectively and successfully plan, manage, execute strategies which lead to profit. Moreover, the impact of information technology on business is on the rise, as several advancements are focused on to be implemented in various business processes.

4. SUGGESTED MARKETING STRATEGIES (Theoretical concept)

The term, marketing, is conventionally associated with promotion and selling of products or services to consumers, where the promotion is done using mass media like newspapers, magazines, T.V. or billboards. But is this all? No. The concept of marketing can be enlarged to include in its purview the whole gamut of communication process geared towards persuading others. Marketing, broadly defined, is getting your ideas across to the people and influencing them to act accordingly, thereby, achieving what you want. It is not that marketing is done only by the corporate at the marketplace; even you and I indulge in marketing in day-to-day life. Say, you want to win that crucial student body election or you want to motivate your reluctant friends to come along with you to Goa. What will you do? You will market yourself or your ideas convincingly and succinctly, so that you/your ideas stand out among the crowd. This means your selling pitch should be unique, so that the others sit up and take notice. It should easily be discernible from the others; in other words, it should stand out in multitude. Brand Definition Brand, An identifying symbol, words, or mark that distinguishes a product or company from its competitors. Usually brands are registered (trademarked) with a regulatory authority and so cannot be used freely by other parties. For many products and companies, branding is an essential part of marketing Branding allows a company to differentiate themselves from the competition and, in the process, to bond with their customers to create loyalty. So a position is created in the marketplace that is much more difficult for the competition to poach. A satisfied customer may leave. But a loyal one is much less likely to. How To Make Your Brand Expressive. Segmentation - demographics, behaviors, needs & values, situational segmentation Choose your trademark architecture

4.1 Developing a Brand plan


The fastest moving companies today plan on a continuous basis rather than on an annual one, and use business scorecards to map their performance in each area of the action plan from total business to individual performance level. Key elements of a brand plan would include: Brand vision (long term) Brand mission (mid term) Market definition Situation analysis Market size and forecasts Market dynamics and trends Market structure and share of trade at supplier, intermediary, and end customer level segmentation. Brand scope (own and competitor brand architectures and performance, brand definitions, comparative brand strategies, brand competencies) Market attraction vs. brand competency chart Alternative scenarios for the next 2-5 years Key programs and their goals Brand objectives

4.2 Naming a brand


Trademarks Naming brand is one aspect of developing a brand identity that can be trademarked. Other elements are: Graphical design (the Nike "swoosh", the Coca-Cola bottle design) Type face

Use of color (Green for Dettol, Blue for Cadbury, Red for Nestle) Sounds (like Airtel tune,)

4.3 SEGMENTATION
The foundation of a successful branding strategy is compelling segmentation, answering the following questions: With whom are we have to build long-term relationships and on what basis? What will make these customers special to us, and what will make us special to them? Above all, how will we recognize them when we see them? You can use at least four levels of segmentation: Demographic segmentation. Behavioral segmentation. Needs and values segmentation. Situational segmentation. In more detail 1. Demographic segmentation This is the standard segmentation of the "broken down by age and sex" variety. Additional demographic segmentations would include socio-economic class, life stage, geographical region, number of people in a household, income and, in business-to-business markets, industry classification, number of employees and turnover. Demographic segmentations tell about how to recognize people but are much less helpful in identifying motivations. For instance, people in a certain income bracket do not all behave the same way, nor do those of the same sex or those living in the same part of the country.

2. Behavioral segmentation Examples of behavioral segmentations would be Internet shoppers, frequent flyers, night workers, and buyers of competitive products/services or special offer seekers. They often tell you how and where to find people, but not what to say to them when you do (except perhaps in the case of special offer seekers).

3. Needs and values segmentation Needs and values segmentations answer why customers behave as they do, and therefore indicate how we should position our brand. There are many highly sophisticated market research techniques, often based on psychological theories, aimed at uncovering customers' hidden needs and values. These needs and values will usually work at several levels, from what customers volunteer as being their motivations through to deep psychological needs, which they would be most uncomfortable discussing. 4. Situational segmentation It has been argued that the same people behave more differently in different situations than do different people in the same situations. Situational segmentations recognize, for instance, that when people have plenty of time to browse the shelves they will behave differently than when they are in a hurry. Indeed, they may be happy to buy products when they are in a hurry that they would not dream of buying at any other time. Next steps Having identified the segmentations in your market at several levels, there is a need to ensure three things:

That the segment is large enough and profitable enough to be worth your while. If not, you may have to combine segments That the segment is recognizable. If you cannot find them by way of demographics, a communication channel, or a short screening exercise, can they find you? That your chosen segment(s) will choose to do business with you

4.4 MARKETING MIX


In market as there many types of products are available so it becomes difficult for the marketers to peruse the right segment market so that they can position their product effectively to target customer. In order for this they use mix of tools of marketing, which is, know as marketing mix. Marketing mix is a set of marketing tools that the firm uses to peruse its marketing objectives in the target market. Theses tool s can be classified broadly into four Ps of marketing, Product, Price, Place, and Promotion. MARKETING MIX

PRODUCT

PRICE

PLACE
1. Channels 2. Coverage 3. Locations 4. Inventory

PROMOTION

TARGET MARKET

Figure 3.
PRODUCT Product is the offering that is made to customer, which satisfy their wants. This is the most important tool that company uses to attract consumer. As for Amul butter is their most profit-earning product as Dairy Milk for Cadbury. PRICE Price is the critical marketing tool. Price is namely the amount of Money that customers have to pay for the product. It is only mix that produces revenue for the company.

The two-price points under which Amul Chocolates are available are Rs 10, and Rs 5. PLACE A place is key marketing mix tool, stands for the various activities the company undertakes to make the product accessible and available to the Target Customers. PROMOTION Promotion is an important tool, which stands for the various marketing activities that the company undertakes to promote its product to the target market. As Amul now provide schemes to Retailers of 1 unit Free with 20 units of Amul Chocolates.

4.5 PROMOTIONAL MIX Promotion consists of those activities that are design to bring companies goods or services to the target customers.
The promotional activities are concerned with: Informing the people about products distinct wantssatisfying characteristics and its availability. Reminding people periodically about the product and its roles. Persuading the people, prospective buyers that make people do what they might not otherwise do what they do not really want to do. Promotional Tools

4.6 ADVERTISING:

On one hand advertisement can be use to build up a long term relationship for a product (utterly buttery delicious), Advertisement is an effective way to reach numerous geographically dispersed buyers at a low cost per exposure. Certain forms of advertising such as TV advertising, can require a large budget, while other forms, such as newspaper advertising can be done on small budget. 1. SALE PROMO: Companies use sales promo tools to create a stronger and quicker response. Sales promotion can be used to dramatize the product offer and to boost sagging sales. Sales promotion effects are usually short run, however, and not in building long run Brand preference. 2. DIRECT MARKETING:

The message is normally addressed to a specific Person and does not reach other. It can be customized to appeal to the addressed individual. It can be prepared very quickly for delivery to an individual.

3. PUBLIC RELATION AND PUBLICITY:

Public relation can reach many prospects who might avid sales people advertising, a potential for dramatizing the company product. A well thought public relation program coordinated with promotion mix elements could be extremely effective.

4.6.1 ADVERTISING BRAND

Key Action Points Define the measurable objectives for advertising campaign Develop a comprehensive briefing document for the advertising agency, including: What is our brand horizon (where do we want it to be in the medium/long term)? What are the measurable objectives for the advertising campaign? How will we measure the results? How is our brand defined? What is our target audience?

Belief in brand values Emotional bonding to the brand Propensity to purchase the brand Propensity to pay a premium price for the brand Developing the brand as a talking point

Some agencies offer eye-tracking research that tells the advertiser which part of a printed advertisement held the consumers' attention. Consumers' eyes often dart around a printed advertisement, missing the main messages & the brand identification, because they cannot find its focal point or any point of entry. The ideal printed advertisement provides a clear flow for the consumer to follow.
